"A bit of crystallized ice from the Great Wolf King of the North. This land was once a realm of sub-zero blizzards and ice storms filled with razor-sharp ice shards, all at the command of Boreas. Though its powers may have diminished, flash-freezing the land is still a breeze." 


Ring of Boreas can only be obtained as a reward from the Wolf of the North Challenge, also known as Lupus Boreas, Dominator of Wolves, which is a weekly boss challenge in Genshin Impact. Upon fighting this boss, his name will be revealed to be "Andrius, Dominator of Wolves." 

"A noble soul that watches over Wolvendom. When the safety of the wolves is threatened, it will take the form of a wolf and show its fangs and claws. It is said that its powers were given to it by an ancient archon."

This boss can be found in Wolverdom in Mondstadt after completing Act 1 of Razor's quest, The Meaning of Lupical.

The rewards this boss yields will depend on your world level. You will always get 300 Adventure EXP and some Mora, but as your world level increases the drops will also increase in value. To get a Ring of Boreas, your world level will have to be at least 5. For this fight, Andrius will be at level 73, and you will get 7,600 Mora plus an additional 65 Adventure EXP.
