Ash'Golm (or Ash'golm) is a molten giant boss in the Vault of Ice in Vault of the Wardens.


During the demon hunter starting experience quest N Demon hunter [8-45] Frozen in Time, Kayn Sunfury and other members of the Illidari battle Ash'golm and manage to contain him in ice by activating the Vault of Ice's countermeasures. He remains this way until players in the dungeon attack him, at which point he immediately breaks free.

Adventure Guide

Ash'golm was one of Ragnaros' lieutenants who burned a violent scar across the forests of Kalimdor before the Wardens finally managed to bind him. Unable to fully destroy Ash'golm, the Wardens locked him in a prison of ice. Unfortunately, the recent incursion by the Legion has weakened the countermeasures that kept Ash'golm frozen all these years....


Ash'golm gradually fills the playspace with more and more lava until he is frozen by the room's countermeasures. Once frozen, Ash'golm becomes Brittle and takes additional damage until he reheats and begins to fill the room with fire once again.
