Finding the Shards and Thaw Them Out. Here’s how!
At least there are three locations where you can find the shards. Of course, the locations here can be found in certain places. Additionally, “In The Mountains” quests will require you to explore certain things in a new region named Dragonspine. That’s a bit hard to explore due to a huge gust of wind.
Moreover, you’re able to get rid of the blockade if you can thaw all the shards out. Of course, in order to successfully complete this quest, you should learn for the locations where the shards can be found. As we’ve mentioned, this post will guide you to find them.
- First Shard Location
You definitely can find the first shard around Entombed City Outskirts which is hidden somewhere in this area. To get this location, you just need to head the northeast region of Entombed City, near the border. In finding a specific location, you should use Dragonspine Teleport Waypoint near Wyrmrest Valley.
In this location, you have to search for a puzzle consisting of 5 pillars. This 5-pillar puzzle can be solved by a Cryo character. So make sure that you keep one in the arsenal. Furthermore, there will be a seelie which will fly from one ice pillar to the next after you activate it. Here, you need to remember the pattern and use a Cryo character to activate each pillar so that the seelis showed you.
After that, you need to fight two golems here. But the problem is that the Sheer Cold debuff is going to become active. Well, to avoid it, you have to run around and then find Ruin Braziers. As we’ve explained, there are some in a circle around the ice pillars that you just activated. Of course, one-by-one will be activated throughout the fight.
Moreover, your foal will run to activate Ruin Oilar and then defeat golems from there. After you defeat the initial two golems, a mini boss level 69 named Ruin Grader will come out. In this way, you have to use the same tactics to keep yourself.
Once you solve the puzzle, a wave of enemies is going to come which you need to defeat. Then, it will allow you to drop down and where you have to break some crystals to find the Scarlett Quartz that can help you to break down the shard in the center of the area.
- Second Shard Location
The second shards can be found in Starglow Cavern. We think that thawing the second shard in this location is much easier than the first shard in Entombed City Outskirts. To reach the location, you just need to teleport waypoint left of the letters Starglow Cavern. Of course, there will be a hole in the ground behind it. Moreover, this hole here will connect to a tunnel which will take you to the shard. Need to know, the shard in this location is blocked by a barrier. Then, you should finish a time trial task to unlock it.
Once you find it, you just need to go east through the cave and you actually will reach the shard. In this place, you will also have to find the three Scarlet Quartz which are easy to spot close to the shard. Once you finish the challenge of killing all enemies, of course the fourth quartz automatically will be available.
- Third Shard Location
The last shard can be found in the Frost Bearing Tree on the Snow Covered Path. In this location, you have to find strange ice which they have to break with the Scarlett Quartz which is collected from the nearby crystals. Here, you are able to thaw the shard. However, the last shard is one of the easiest to complete.
