As told previously. Even with bugs, I tend to dance with Avalanche. It's not that difficult, but when you enter the third step of dance, continue to move to the left around the boss since AoE is, indeed, moving with, not respecting color. If you're looking for Cold Potatoe achievement, learning dance steps helps a lot, this ach is already a pain in his concept.. Oh, MagmaShell allows you to skip damage while not dancing and staying near Avalanche, for times you can't follow the dance - for example, if Avalanche's AoE is partly in the bigger, icy AoE on border. But you should have Avalanche always around middle of room so you're free for the dance.
At first I was kiting Avalanche around the place, but it can lead to hard situations when you cross allies and Avalanche does a special attack. DDs are bad at dancing
No, it's not a lag. Refer to bug report forums, to the thread about broken AoE telegraphs. They are bugged throughout the game, it's acknowledged and the fix is said to be top priority... Aside from that, nothing.
AoEs don't line up with visuals. Avalanche turns during the mechanics when it shouldn't turn, and damage turns with it (while red on the ground stays the same). Olms, people point out, sweeps invisible cone of his breath and kills kiters. Thurvokun hits people with invisible ice blasts. The game has a whole bouquet right now, a lot of people are waiting for the patch.
I have a question about the Rizzuk Bonechill boss fight in Frostvault, specifically on tanking the frost atronach Avalanche. The atronach does his "pizza slice" mechanic, during which presumably the tank must stand on the clear slice to not get one-shot. However, during our many attempts, when I was tanking the atronach, I was certainly inside the clear area of the slices and still got one shot through block by the atronach's attack.
Is there some mechanic that we are missing? We did clear it eventually with good resses and high DPS, but I would like to know if there is a proper way to do it. At one point it seemed to me like there was server lag, not registering the tank being in the right slice, but I cannot confirm this.

Cold Potato has nothing to do with the pie-slice mechanic.
Cold Potato just means that every player has run into a rolling frost ball before RIzzuk is killed.
Especially with the current game-wide broken telegraph bug, I would recommend an alternative approach to this fight.
Healer slots Inner Fire and taunts the goblin to hold him in place. He hits like a wet noodle and isn't a threat to anyone. Tank taunts the frost atro and just kites it around on a wild goose chase around the room.
At 12:40 in this video, you can see a demonstration of that approach:
