I ran into this NM. I decided to give it a shot because I read it could be soloed by a 75 BLM.

I went to pull it with Gravity and linked two other bombs. I pulled them all together and slept them, then I kited Snow Maiden away and started nuking. My first spell did 900 damage and moved its HP bar about 5% <,< Fortunately, it sleeps easily. I just nuked myself down to low MP, Sleep 2ed it, rested to half MP, and repeated. I found Thunder does the best damage. I'd heard most Snolls were weak to ice the same way Bombs are weak to fire, but that doesn't seem to be the case with this NM. Bliz 4 does 916 and Thunder 4 does 1041, and I'm using Hyorin Obi with 1 Ice Weather. Fire does the high 800s. Watch out for deagro + regen. She seems to like to do that.

Anyway, no drop. 91 xp solo with band as a 75 BLM. That puts its base xp at 61.
Yay for Jhereg!

I saw and fought this today as 75 RDM. She was with 2 other Morozko, so like Pergatory I believe she is a timed pop if the placeholders are NOT killed for a certain amount of time. She was already up when I got there.

Jormungand also appeared today (and is still there on Garuda), so it might even be that she is 3-7 day pop like him. Unless someone stays there for a solid 3 days and watches all Morozko / Snow Maiden activity, there is no 100% sure knowledge on her spawn.

cannotlinkto says she has "High Auto-Regen". I was fighting her on Darksday and she had NO Auto-Regen at all. So is it possible she only has it on a certain day? Please provide info if you have it!

there is an HQ version of Snow Maiden called "Father Frost" who is only slightly more difficult. Purgatory Collar has not dropped for me yet, I'm 0/3 on Snow Maiden and 0/1 on Father Frost.

Here's what little I know about Snow Maiden:
Every time I've encountered it, it has been up already when I approached, which suggests it's not a lottery or placeholder pop. More likely timed. I have seen it in no weather, single ice, and double ice. I've revisted during the 21-24 spawn period and it did not respawn.

Something to note, is that when I have seen Snow Maiden up, there were only 2 Morozko's with her. Normally there are 3 at that camp, so I'm beginning to wonder if it is a placeholder/lottery NM, and I have just been lucky the 3 times that I've wandered by and seen her up and unclaimed. The reason this is feasible is because SMN normally use this camp for soloing EXP on Morozkos and I don't think Snow Maiden can combust so SMN probably just left her alone.

I recently picked up a Purgatory Mace so I really want the matching collar and will be camping this a bit more heavily. More info to follow as I discover it.

I'm now fairly certain that this NM is a reverse placeholder NM. What does this mean exactly? It means that in order for the NM to spawn, you need to NOT kill any of the Morozko's at this position. Eventually (10+ hours) one of the Morozko will despawn and the Snow Maiden or Father Frost will spawn.

It's even possible that Father Frost is a reverse placeholder pop on Snow Maiden, meaning that if nobody touches Snow Maiden for 10+ hours then Father Frost will pop. I'm not entirely sure, as of this time I've seen Snow Maiden 8 times and Father Frost once.

Title says it all, just pull it to the cave as to not aggro any other bombs and sleep nuke. Has about 13000 hp, so it takes a minute or ten. It dropped a whopping 61 exp for me!
