Break-offs usually give 1 extra core that will always either be the trash drop, Elixir or Blessed Magic Powder.
However, with LUK, there is a chance (1.5% per LUK) for a Luck core to spawn from the Break-off core. In this case, it can contain a rare drop. You can tell that you got a Luck core from Break-off if you see 2 question mark cores after breaking.

In Special raids and non-raids, the break-off will give 3 cores instead (more with LUK). Unlike normal raids, all break-off cores can contain a rare drop.

Special

Special Glas
Remind your party to equip Chain Hooks before starting.
Location: Right Wing
5yrPvMX.png
Only by having 2 people use Chain Hooks on his Right Wing at the same time. It is much easier to do after he has been stunned by using 2 Ballista shots.
A good video can be found at: https://youtu.be/eWfEO6Xz6IQ?t=52
Worth getting: Yes, if your party knows what they are doing it is very fast to do.

Special Havan
Location: Rock covering his heart, then his heart.
8oyIYMj.png
Number of Frostbites: 2 for the rock covering his heart and core, 2 more for all parts.
Worth getting: Yes, it is an easy spear target. Once the rock armor breaks you get the cores. (You now do not need to break the heart itself for cores)

Special Colru
Location: Left arm (orange)
TzlQ0iO.png
Number of Frostbites: 5
Worth getting: Yes, spear his left arm and/or use powerful smashes on it, especially while he is sitting down after being knocked down. Usually breaks just by attacking his left arm.

Special Cromm Cruach
Location: Left shoulder pauldron
fRKnJab.png
Number of Frostbites: 2
Worth getting: Yes, however it is hard with Spears/Sticky Bomb (so a lot of parties skip this one). Good with Vella or Kai.

Level 100

Caesar
Location: Left shoulder
RRfxc60.png
Number of Frostbites: 2
Worth getting: No, unless Vella, seems hard to get with Kai.

Aodhan
Location: Cape
XyWnKl5.png
Number of Frostbites: 2
Worth getting: Sometimes breaks just by attacking him.

Marject
Location: Tongue
a9Ak55K.png
Number of Frostbites: 2
Worth getting: Sometimes breaks just by attacking him from the front, but it helps if there's a Kai or Vella in the party.

Selren
Location: Horns, then Upper arm cuffs and shoes.
RbXd6kx.png
Number of Frostbites: 2 for horns and core, 1 more for upper arm cuffs, 1 more for shoes / all parts.
Note: You can break the shoes before arm cuffs, but you must break horns first before you can start breaking other parts.
Worth getting: Sometimes breaks just by attacking her, but it helps if there's a Kai or Vella in the party.

Brilliant Lugh
Location: Shield on his left wrist
iY4MYND.png
Number of Frostbites: 2 (works both before or after he transforms, or 1 before 1 after)
Worth getting: No, unless Vella, seems hard to get with Kai.

Agares
Location: Left shoulder pauldron
Uy2zxR2.png
Number of Frostbites: 2
Worth getting: No, unless Vella or Kai.

Macha
Location: Wings in phase 2 only. There is no break in phase 1, you can flinch her but it doesn't contribute to the break later.
krOG52B.png
Number of Frostbites: This one regenerates, so if you only use one Frostbite and wait, you will never get it. But if you hit it while waiting, or have 2 Vellas, it requires 2 Frostbites.
Hitting her enough with high knockdown attacks will break, Frostbite/Handbombs can help trigger the break if there has been enough hits in total.
Worth getting: Usually breaks just by attacking her.

Eternal Elchulus
Location: Spear anywhere, but all his spines are damaged after the crash landing.
QGHXP89.png
Only by spearing him 8 times (less if there are less party members) to make him crash land.
Worth getting: Yes definitely, as it also makes him (crash) land faster and he takes a lot of damage.

Claire
Location: Right shoulder pauldron
pJc2ftt.png
Number of Frostbites: 2
Worth getting: No, unless Vella.

Level 95

Rupacitus
Location: Gills
VcSOfr9.png
Number of Frostbites: 2
Worth getting: No, unless Vella.

Arcana
Location: Head (goggles)
dbRQyQ0.png
Number of Frostbites: 2
Worth getting: No, unless Kai breaks by naturally aiming for the head or Vella but seems to be hard.

Aes Sidhe
Location: Tail
NyvGWhD.png
Number of Frostbites: 2
Worth getting: Usually breaks just by attacking him from the back. It helps if you position yourself behind him and attack. Otherwise don't worry about it.

Dullahan
Location: Chest
NNeet5P.png
Number of Frostbites: 2
Worth getting: Usually breaks just by attacking her from the front. It helps if there's a Kai or Vella in the party. Otherwise don't worry about it.

Level 90

Abomination
Location: Wings, then Abdomen.
g0lQEiX.png
Note: The visuals for the break-off are broken and will not be displayed.
Number of Frostbites: 2 for Wings and core, 1 more for all parts.
Worth getting: Sometimes breaks just by attacking him. If it breaks, it breaks, if not, don't worry about it.

Eochaid
Location: Infection with an eye on his chest
ctkeDiZ.png
Only Rusted Chain Hook located at the top area after grabbing onto him should be used to break. Normal Chain Hooks require more so are not worth using.
A good guide can be found at: https://youtube.com/watch?v=rCOR6YtLJNs
Worth getting: Yes if you don't mind losing damage as you will be immobile while you are pulling. However the rest of the party will be able to attack the boss which will also be immobile.

Lugh
Location: Shield on his left wrist
lch5f0r.png
Number of Frostbites: 1
Number of Spears: 2
Worth getting: Yes, with Cat Statue a Crossgun Kai can break with the first attack. Not really worth it with spears as it is hard to hit. Staff can also hit it.

Lord Glas Ghaibhleann
Location: Both armguards
QkpgexQ.png
Only Judgement of the Goddess spears located at the side of the map can break equires his barrier to be broken, then two more Judgement of the Goddess for each break.
His right armguard gives bonus core. His left armguard gives bonus mission gold.
Lots of other restrictions: refer to https://vindictus.gamepedia.com/Lord_Glas_Ghaibhleann#Break_Off_Tips
A good guide can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFqxDjU6uro
Worth getting: No for both

Braha
Location: Jewel on both Braha's chest
NL231AR.png
Only Fine Small Bombs located at the corner of the map can break. Left (Brown) Braha is easy to break but only gives a small amount of bonus mission gold. Right (Orange) Braha is takes a long time to break, does not give bonus mission, gives extra core.
Worth getting: No for both

Regina
Location: Head piece
ZPBpHHO.png
Number of Frostbites: 2
Worth getting: No, unless Kai is in the party as he should be aiming for the head regardless.

Niflheim

Succubus Queen
Location: Wing, then feet, spikes on armor, then head piece.
All 4 can only be broken by resisting the nightmare mini-game. Just one break is enough for cores.
Worth getting: Yes, but good luck.

Zecallion
Location: Armor around his head and upper arms
Worth getting: No, Frostbite does not work on it. Only Spears/Sticky Bomb/Kai and is hard to reach.

Royal Army Raids (RAR)

Lavasat
Location: Armor on each of his 4 legs and tail, then spike on his back.
Number of Frostbites: 1 for each of the 6 breaks. The spike can only be broken if the other 5 have been broken and will give a core.
Worth getting: The five pieces of armor will be broken easily just by attacking him. As for the spike, since it is hard to reach, no, unless Vella or Bow Kai.

Thor
Location: Tongue
Hits: 11 (note this regenerates over time)
Worth getting: No, Frostbite does not work on it. Only Spears/Kai and is hard to reach.

Titan
Location: Back of left ankle
Number of Frostbites: 5 (note this regenerates over time)
Worth getting: No, too many hits are required and is hard to reach without Frostbite.

    Thanks.

    Arcana break-off is missing, the one for the Fashion Police title. I think you need to be near her to gather Rupture stacks (when she glows blue) and then use smash when a text appears on screen at 2 Rupture stacks > 3 Rapture stacks > 3 Rapture stacks to get the break-off.

    And if I recall correctly, Karok's boss clash skill can break-off Eochaid's infection.

    Anyone knows if Eochaid\Ancient Glas\Braha can be broken-off with Frostbites?

    Macha and Abomination have been updated with more info.

    Tacked on small list of the Level 100 raid titles. Didn't feel like making a new page for that since some (now incomplete) lists already exist.

    Karok's clash does not give an core neither does destroying Arcana's outfit, so I didn't count it.
    Well if anyone wants more info on destroying Arcana's outfit, there's this and this.

    Frostbite does not work for the ones that I have "Only...", so no.

    I list that because the number required is consistent.

    For Greed's End - Lubash the Usurper the easy way to get break-off is to run up the steps (via the stair ledges). Once that happens you can spear Lubash's crown with ease.

    Also for Cromm when he comes down after the clone phase is the easiest time to spear/sticky bomb his pauldron. It's actually a really easy break with 2 people spearing takes 8 spear hits/2 flinch i think but unconfirmed.
