dude, you know. "skyscale of ice"
have to get frozen by the **** ice dragon. that I waited nearly 3 hours to spawn. and it doesn't even freeze me. so I give up. I will never get skyscale.
I take it you're referring to the step Ice of the Air where the instructions say "Become encased in an ice prison caused by ice storms in Bitterfrost Frontier or during the Claw of Jormag world boss event"?
If you've got the Season 3 episode A Crack in the Ice unlocked then I strongly recommend doing this in Bitterfrost Frontier because it's much easier to get there. The storms are roaming around the centre of the map almost all the time (I think they disappear for a short time after the meta is completed) and all you have to do is run into one while you're not near or carrying Koda's Brazier.
If you're trying to do it using the Claw of Jormag fight make sure it's the world boss version in Frostgorge Sound, the Drizzlewood Coast version was added later and may not be compatible with this achievement (I can't remember if it's possible to be frozen in that version). During the fight you need to find a Veteran Corrupted Ice Elemental and get it to attack you. Also make sure you're not reflecting projectiles, because the freezing skill counts as a projectile.
Edit: Also any time you need to do a world boss or major meta event I strongly recommend starting by checking this page: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Event_timers You could have seen it wasn't going to spawn for 3 hours, gone away and done something else and come back just before it was due to start instead of wasting your time waiting.

Ohh that, have you tried bitterfrost frontier?
"Walk into any of the roaming Ice Storms in Bitterfrost Frontier, or be frozen by a Veteran Corrupted Ice Elemental around or during the Claw of Jormag world boss event."
Bitterfrost Frontier is the easiest way (if you have unlocked the episode) those Ice Storms are everywhere there and you just have to hang around one for it to freeze you constantly.
Otherwise you need to be frozen by the Ice Elementals and not the Claw itself. The event spawns every three hours on a timer so you don't have to wait around for it. Just get there about 10 minutes before and go after the Ice Elementals until one freezes you.
Good idea. Give up trying to get it from Claw and go run into ice storm in Bitterfrost Frontier. Easy-peasy.
Is Bitterfrost accessible without having played season 3 yet? I've played HOT, POF, and Season 4 and have all of the other content unlocked, but have not yet played those earlier seasons.
You can look in LFG, join a group, use a teleport to friend, and there you are.
