This achievement is 'Story' related, as such I will not be using spoiler tags. This is your warning.

This achievement is earned for completing the final quest of the DLC - "Hakkon Wintersbreath". This quest starts as soon as you finish "On Ameridan's Trail".

This quest is solely a boss fight with Hakkon Wintersbreath, who is a Frost High Dragon.
I didn't fight him on a high difficulty, but from my experience in fighting all the other High Dragons on Nightmare, here's what I did.

- Firstly, all the enemies in this DLC seemed to do way higher magic damage than anything I've seen. As such, you'll probably want some Frost Resistance Tonics. There is a recipe in the Old Temple, at the end of the left path as soon as you enter.
- I personally also always use Regeneration tonics. The recipe was from speaking to the alchemist in Haven the first time, so you may have missed it. The fully upgraded version has a healing aura, so it's good for keeping your people up.

- When I fight dragons, what I do is bring 1 tanking warrior (me) and 3 mages.
- I crafted all 3 mages a staff that would be good against the Dragon, which in this case would be fire.
- I then just kept the mages together and made sure to constantly switch to them so they keep their barriers up.
- If you only have 2 mages, I'd bring Varric. If you have less than that you're going to have to make do with whoever you can. Just use either Dragon Slaying or Fire runes if you can help it.

The fight starts with Hakkon talking to you on a cliff while many 'Gibbering Frost Horrors' attack you. This is essentially Hakkon's equivalent of the drakelings that most other Dragons spawn.
Other than that the fight pretty much works like many other Dragon fights.

His attacks.
- Frost Breath
- The wind cyclone that damages anyone outside it as well as pulling you close
- Stomps/swipes/all that jazz
- Can take off and fly around while shooting Ice Balls at you.
- Can land on the upper podium, where he'll summon more horrors as well as shoot Ice Balls at you.
- Stunning Screech
- Summoning more Horrors.
- When he's weak, he'll move up to the slightly raised platform and you have to follow him.

Pretty much all you want to do is make sure your mages are sticking together so they can barrier each other, and then have them move close to the boss whenever he does the wind attack. Then send them back away when he's finished.

Malazan - Hakkon counts towards the Dragon's Bane achievement (kill 10 high dragons).
