Frostval is a yearly event held in the AE games. It started with the original game "Adventure Quest" back in 2003 and since then has been a tradition in all of AE's games. Currently, it has been held once in AQWorlds, and we approach the second year.
Just for a heads up: if you notice the title of this guide, you will see it says "Frostval" not "Frostvale." This is intentional. There is a common mistake that the holiday is Frostvale, which is in fact, the name of the town in the event. The Holiday itself is Frostval.
Moving on: This is a Seasonal guide for the annual Frostvale event, which happens to be my favorite zone. This guide is designed to take you through each quest step-by-step so as to help you complete this zone. The drop rates on the quest items and item drops are NOT 100%, so it may take awhile. This guide will also be used to help with the item drops, how much they sell for, and where to get them. Please realize that every year the zone will expand and will be updated accordingly; it also may have item/quests taken out, but it will be correct from the most current event. It will be updated as more is released. For any corrections, feel free to PM me. Have fun!
Table of Contents
Ice Cave [FV3]
Toy Factory [FV4]
'Twas the Night Before Frostval [FV6]
Golden Ruins [FV8]
The first zone is /join snowpath. It is the zone you must complete before entering Frostvale. In this area you see the first Frostvale monsters and start the storyline. On the top screen of the zone, you see a huge glass shield. If you battles the monsters and complete the quests, the shield disappears and you can enter! All the monsters in this zone are easily beaten by one person, so go ahead!
To do the quests, click on the exclamation mark above Robina's head --> Click Quests:
- Piercing Arrows
Get 5 "Frosty Metals" from Frosty. Head up and swing a right. Although he looks big, since he only has 1000 HP, you shouldn't have a problem taking him down.
"Frosty the Snow Golem has put up a barrier to Frostvale! None of my arrows seem to penetrate the frozen barrier. If I had some pieces of Frosty Metal from the Snow Golem I could make some very strong arrows and break that barrier! Please bring me back 5 pieces of Frosty Metal so I can make Frosty Metal arrows. In return I will give you this Frost Guard."
This quest was only in the Frostval of 2008. It isn't available anymore.
- Rescue Blizzy
Get 1 "Blizzy" from Frosty. Go back to Frosty and take him down again. He has the moglin quest item that you need for this quest.
"Oh no! Something terrible has happened! Blizzy the ice Moglin has been captured, and this could spell the end of Frostvale! Blizzy is the only one that can help the citizens of Battleon get through the frost barrier and enter Frostvale. Without Blizzy, Frostvale could be destroyed! Blizzy was captured by Frosty, the Snow Golem. I've tried to save Blizzy and was defeated and I'm all out of my special metal arrows. If you can, please gather some friends, defeat Frosty and bring back Blizzy safe and sound!"
- Scary Snowmen
Get 2 "Scarfs" from the Snow Golems. Cold? Well, just head up one screen from the start to the Golems and ask for their scarfs. They are level 1 with only 500 HP.
"Thank you for saving Blizzy! However, I'm still in a bit of a jam. Poor Blizzy is now terrified of snowmen and won't return to Frostvale. There are two Snow Golems blocking the way to Frostvale with their sharp swords of ice. You seem to be pretty tough since you bested Frosty. Defeat the two Snow Golems blocked the path and bring me their scarves as proof. The scarves will show Blizzy that it is safe to return to Frostvale."
Now you can move on to Frostvale!
These items drop from the monsters in this zone. Monster drops:
Now you are in /join frostvale and can pretty much get anywhere in the event from here. From the main screen in Frostvale, go one up to get to the Toy Factory, go down to go back to the Snowpath, and in the screen to the left, you can get to the Icecave. The only area you can't get to, is Frost, but by going to the Toy Factory, you can get there as well.
There are two shops here: Robina and Blizzy's Shop and Major Moglin's Shop. Robina will be the first NPC you see when you go into Frostvale, so just click on her to enter the shop. You must have complete all the quests up to the last one in /join factory before you can open it and get the item. To get to Major Moglin's shop go right 2 screens then take the upper path left 2 screens and you'll see a moglin with a crown. You must complete the same quests like Robina and Blizzy's shop(Up to the last one in the Toy Factory) to unlock it.
There is also a part of Frostvale that contains a "Snowball Fight" mini-game which is quite simple. Just line up on another player and fire the snowball, there are also a couple tricks in it. If somebody is hiding in a fort, just throw a snowball at the target board and a pile of snow will fall on them. You can also make your snowball bigger by holding down on your mouse clicker longer before firing. No prizes, but fun to play!
Now you have made it to the Ice Cave. This area was the first area in which you can join a party room if you are in a party. The monsters here are considered very good for reputation and exp farming. There are four rooms with four more quests involving ice monsters. You must have completed the SnowPath to enter this zone.
In the first screen, there is a blue Moglin, Blizzy, click on him to get the Quests:
- Moglin Popsicles
Get 8 "Moglins" from the Frost Moglins. There are four Frost Moglins in screen 2 and 3 (Two in each). Each are only level 1 and have 1000 HP.
"Blizzy is grateful that you saved him from Frosty…but his friends…are in trouble! They were captured by someone…or something…and encased in ice, like a moglin popsicle! Please free the other 8 moglins that live in this town and bring them back safe."
- Crystal Spiders
Get 6 "Ice Spider Legs" from the Ice Spiders. As like the Frost Moglins, there are four Ice Spiders in the first 3 screens; each are level 15 with 800 HP. Bring back 6 of them to Blizzy.
"Wow, you are very strong! Thank you for saving Blizzy's friends! Did you see the scary spiders? They just started lurking in the cave…with their hungry eyes…and who knows when they may attack Frostvale! Please get rid of as many spiders as you can inside the cave. Bring Blizzy back 8 ice spider legs as proof of their extermination."
- Fluffy Bears
Get 3 "Bear Fur Patches" from the Polar Bears. These bears are in the first 3 areas and have 1000 HP at level 15. The good news is that you only need 3 quest items.
"My friends that were rescued are still very cold from the ice they were trapped in. There are polar bears in the cave that have warm fluffy fur. My friends will be able to make blankets with their fur. The bears have so much fur they won't miss some! The thing is…they won't give the fur without a fight. Can you bring Blizzy 3 patches of fur from the Polar Bears?"
- BlueEyed Beast
Get 1 "Frost Dragon Scale" from the Frost Dragon. Finally you head into the fourth screen where a Frost Dragon awaits you. It is recommended(and necessary) to have friends with you, or you won't be able to beat him. This Frost Dragon has 10,000 HP and is level 25!
"Oh no! A FROST DRAGON? That's how my friends were captured! Blizzy did hear that Frost Dragons can be…moglactose intolerant. Please get rid of this beast ! We want to go back to our peaceful lives and celebrate our big winter tradition again! Bring Blizzy back a scale from the Frost Dragon. This will be your proof that you have defeated the dragon and will be known as a great Hero! You might want to bring some friends."
Moving along to a completely different zone at /join factory. You now must fight the greed driven sneevils, their helper golems, and take out there leader the Ebilsneezer. If you convince him, he may even drop his golden cane! Upon completion you unlock Robina's shop.
Blizzy is back giving quests in this zone too. Just click on him to get started. Quests:
- Trouble Makers
Get 8 "Sneevil Tools" from the Sneevil Toy Makers. You can find these Sneevils anywhere inside the Factory. They are relatively easy as they are level 12 with 700 HP.
"The great Frost Dragon has been defeated! Blizzy thought our village would be saved, until it was discovered that the Toy Factory has been overtaken by the devious sneevils! These mischief makers have built evil machines that convert our presents into coal. You beat spiders, bears, a horrible dragon and Frosty! The sneevils might be small, but don't overestimate them. Please defeat the sneevils and bring Blizzy back 8 of their tools. This will stop them from making any more evil machines that destroy our presents."
- Bad Ice Cream
Get 5 "Top Hats" from the Snow Golems. And a familiar monster that you encountered in Snowpath is back. Same as before, so go ahead!
"Blizzy didn't think that the sneevils would be doing all of their devious work on their own. There are scary snowmen working for the sneevils that seem to be enchanted. There is some sort of magic in their hats that makes them do these evil deeds for the sneevils. Please go to the Toy Factory and overpower the snowmen and take their mind controlling hats so they return to normal! Bring Blizzy back 5 of their snow hats. That way, it can be discovered what kind of magic was used, 'cause Blizzy wants his own snowmen."
- Greedy Sneevil
Get 1 "Sneezer's Wand" from the Ebilsneezer. The boss Sneevil, he's pretty tough though, so you should grab some friends to help out. He is level 23 with 7,000 HP.
"The great Frost Dragon has been defeated! Blizzy thought our village would be saved, until it was discovered that the Toy Factory has been overtaken by the devious sneevils! These mischief makers have built evil machines that convert our presents into coal. You beat spiders, bears, a horrible dragon and Frosty! The sneevils might be small, but don't overestimate them. Please defeat the sneevils and bring Blizzy back 8 of their tools. This will stop them from making any more evil machines that destroy our presents.
At this point, you can go back to Robina in Frostvale. Her shop is unlocked now.
But....if you want, you can accept the last quest and continue to the zone Frost. Make sure you get the quest from Blizzy first.
- Shadow Figure This is completed in a different zone
Get 1 "Frostscythe Scroll" from the FrostScythe. Now you'll need to head to Frost and find the FrostScythe(shouldn't be hard to find him, just go to the right after to get to Frost). He is one of the hardest monsters/enemies in the game, so you'll definitely want to bring friends to help with this one!
"Blizzy just recieved some dire news! Ebil Sneezer wasn't the mastermind beind the unwelcome things that have happened in Frostvale after all! There is another sinister figure hiding in the shadows…scheming all this…but for what purpose? A FrostScythe has been found in the area…a DragonMaster! Defeat the FrostScythe and bring back his notebook so the Frost Moglins can find out more about his master plans."
- Sneevil Toy Maker
Toy Maker Wrench Sellback of 1,250 Gold
- Snow Golems
Ice Sabre Sellback of 2,500 Gold
Cane of Greed Sellback or 12,500 Gold.
Now, although this looks like a great thing to farm because of the high sellback, it has a low drop rate. So it might be better to stick with farming a better place, if you're looking for gold.
In this zone(/join frost), you can complete the Shadow Figure quest that is accepted in the Factory. Who is this shadowy figure? The mind of the operation? He drops many special weapons and items - if you can take him out! Multiple people are recommended for this boss and the Frostzards in the next room are great for exp!
- Shadow Figure This quest must be accepted in the Factory
Get 1 "Frostscythe Scroll" from the FrostScythe. As in the previous section, just take a right and you'll find him, make sure you have brought friends! He has 20,000 HP and is level 25!
The FrostZards don't drop anything, however, they are level 18 with 1,500 HP. So they aren't too bad for Experience and Class Reputation.
Just released in '09, this is a brand new set of quests that takes you on an exhilirating adventure. To do these quests, you must complete the factory quests. Head over to the Frostvale Town, and look for Major Moglin. Quests:
- 'Twas the Night Before Frostval
Obtain a Frostval Book Cover. You can find that quest item by fighting Frosty in the Snowpath map.
The timeless classic story book, 'Twas the Night Before Frostval, has gone missing! Someone… or something… must have stolen it last night. Check all the monsters in the area and see if any of them have it! Hurry Hero, the book has to be close by… try checking in the Snow Path that leads to the village!
- Chapter 2
To finish this quest and move on to Chapter 3, you must find Page 2. That is located in Yulgar's Inn, above the fireplace, in a sock.
Open your Book of Lore an read the first page of the Frostval story. There should be hints that will clue you in on where the next page might be found.
- Chapter 3
Another easy quest. To complete it, you must find the third page. Head to battleontown, and you'll see it on the ground.
We need to find the third page. Open your Book of Lore an read the first two pages of the Frostval story. There should be hints that will clue you in on where the next page might be found.
- Chapter 4
This quest requires you to find the fourth page. To get it, defeat a Sneevil Toy Maker in Factory.
Three pages found… three pages to go! We need to find the fourth page. Open your Book of Lore an read the first three pages of the Frostval story. There should be hints that will clue you in on where the next page might be found.
- Chapter 5
Two more pages left! :) The fifth page can be found on Santy Claws, in Northland Lights (type /join northlandlight). Santy Claws also drops items that you may want to have in your backpack.
Only two more pages left! We need to find the fifth page. Open your Book of Lore an read the first four pages of the Frostval story. There should be hints that will clue you in on where the next page might be found.
- Chapter 6
You're almost done! To complete the quest, you need the final page. Head over to battleontown, and click the Golden Moglin on top of the tree. Once you're done, head back to Major Moglin. Turn in the quest item, and it'll unlock a shop full of goodies :)
The Frostval story book is almost complete! Only one more page to go! Open your Book of Lore an read through the Frostval story. There should be hints that will clue you in on where the next page might be found.
The '10 release has a new twist to it and a familiar enemy(if you were in the Lionfang war). You can choose between good, evil or a combination of the two! These quests takes you on an new adventure with Blizzy. To do these quests, you must have completed the Major Moglins question. Head over to the Frostvale Town, and look for Blizzy who is standing right by Robina. If you have caught up in the storyline, an exclamation point will be above Blizzy's head. If not, you need to make sure you've completed everything else.
At certain points in the cutscenes, you will have to choose between Good and Evil. The choice that you make effects the cutscene, but NOT any of the quests or rewards. After the first cutscene with the Frostval Spirit, you will find yourself in the SnowGlobe area with Blizzy. Quests:
- Shaking the Globes
Walk around and find all the snowglobes on the ground. Click all 10, and you can return.
Before we can talk to Garaja we need to make sure that none of these snow gloves are the one that holds the Spirit and our gifts! Shake 10 Snow Globes and come back to Blizzy when you're done!
- A Demonstration
Fight the Snow Golems for ten Snow Golem defeated quest items. There are some on this map, but you'll probably be faster if you join the Northlands or KingCoal.
Garaja has locked himself in here. He's just scared and trying to protect himself. We can't talk our way in. We need to show Garaja that you can fight. Defeat 10 Snow Golems and return here when you're done!
- Hearts of Ice
Go defeat the Snowman Soldiers for this quest. They are pretty strong, but an experienced player can solo them easily.
Before we get to Garaja I need to ask a favor of you. Garaja uses Enchanted Ice Cores to animate his snowmen soldiers. We could use their magic back in Frostvale to make some really amazing gifts. See if you can find 6 Hearts of Ice and bring them to Blizzy.
- Defeat Garaja
Find and defeat Garaja. You will watch a cutscene, and the quest will auto turn in so you can continue right to the Golden Ruins!
This is a continuation of the '10 Frostval. You need to have complete the Snowglobe area to start this one. In this area you will see if you can beat the notorious Lionfang and return the Holiday Spirit of Frostval. Quests:
- Springing Traps
You'll see some piles of snow on the ground which are the traps. Click all 10, and you can return.
*sniff sniff*. Do you smell what Blizzy smells? Steel, oil… TRAPS! You'll need to disarm the traps before you can do anything else. I think I can smell 10 traps… make sure you disarm all 10.
- Frost Lions
Get ten Lion Destroyed quest items from the Frost Lions you see.
Lionfang must have found some ancient magics here. I see a bunch of Frost Lions patrolling the grounds that he must have created. You have to thin the numbers before you can get to Lionfang. Destroy 10 Frost Lions and return to me.
- Onslaught Keyrings
If you played the LionFang war these enemies will be very familiar. You need to beat them to get the four Onslaught Keyrings.
The trap door to the safe room is locked! One of the Golden Warriors must have the right key-ring but we don't have time to find out which. I guess you'll just have to grab them all. Get all 4 Onslaught Keyrings and bring them back here.
- Defeat Lionfang
Make your way to Lionfang and defeat him for his quest item. He also has many new drops so you can fight him more! The quest will auto turn in and you can watch the final cutscene.
Ok, it looks like this key will unlock the safe room were Lionfang is hiding. Please be careful. HE could destroy the snow globe at any moment. You'll have to find a way to convince him to set it down before you can attack. Frostval is depending on you.
Now in the Frosval of '11, head to the Alpines(/join alpine) to begin. You must have completed all the previous areas to unlock this one! Blizzy and Gravelyn both have quests, but only Gravelyn's are required to move on in the Frostval story.
- Snow Way to Know Where to Go
Find your way to the end of the map. When you see Windego, you'll know you're in the right place. Directions are Right -> Right -> Up -> Up -> Up.
I don't know where we are, so you'd better find out! Let me know if there's anything you'll need my help taking out. Once you've discovered the boundaries of the forest, come back and I'll tell you what to do next.
- Arming the Undead Army
Obtain 15 Perfectly Sharpened Mole Claws from the Glacier Moles and return to Gravelyn.
Those Glacier Moles have some WICKED sharp claws, don't you think? They would make PERFECT spear tips for Daddy's Soldiers! Bring me back 15 Perfectly Sharpened Mole Claws so we can arm Daddy's army!
- Cold as a Corpse
Walk around the map and find 10 Deadwood Bundles.
You know, us Undeads, we don't need to stay warm. But sometimes Daddy brings Humans to the Fortress. They have long meetings after I have to go to bed. They always seem so COLD! I bet they'd be able to plot Evil better if they had some fire. Gather 10 bundles of DeadWood so we can burn it.
- Pretty Pretty Princess Undead Decor
Now walk around again and find 13 Dragon Skulls which are lying on the ground.
My room is the Evillest, don't you think? But it doesn't have enough… SKULLS! But skeleton skulls are DUMB. I want EVIL Skulls… like DRAGON Skulls! I know there are Frost Dragons in this forest. So SOME of them must have died from heroes like you. Bring me 13 FrostDragon Skulls.
- Deadifying Frost Lions
Go defeat the Frost Lions until you obtain 13 Frost Lion Tamed quest items.
Daddy's army doesn't have any mounts! I keep telling him that skeletons riding on top of monsters would be SOOOO COOL! But I guess he just doesn't have time to find creatures for them to ride. So WE will! Go knock out 13 Frost Lions so that Daddy can 'deadify them back home!
- Defiant Undead Deserters
Deny the deserters! Defeat them until you receive 15 Deserter Denied Freedom items!
Daddy demands loyalty from his army, and he WILL have it! Those dumb skeletons! Only a couple are silly enough to try to run away, but we'll bring them back, won't we, New Friend? Recapture 15 Ice Skeletons so we can bring them home!
- Forest Guardian Gauntlet
Find your way to the top of the mountain and defeat Windego. Then you'll watch a cutscene.
While you were recapturing Daddy's Undead deserters, I spotted a GINORMOUS FEROCIOUS forest guardian! You have GOT to bring me its HEAD! … What are you waiting for? GO!
After watching the cutscene from the Alpines, go to the Ice Volcano to defeat the ice monsters that have captured the city's inhabitants.
- Snow Turning Back!
For this quest, you have three objectives. Firstly, walk through the map and light ten fires by clicking on the designated spots on the ground. Then defeat Snow Golems to obtain 10 Snow Golem Melted items. Finally, defeat Dead-ly Ice Elementals for 10 Ice Elemental Melted quest items.
It looks like Dead Morice has power over more than just the poisoned ice zombies who were once your friends! You'll need to take out 10 Snow Golems and 10 Ice Elementals to reach him! While you journey, renew the spirit of the land by placing 10 wisps of Frostval's Flame around the area!
- Venom in Your Veins
Defeat 20 Ice Symbiotes for Ice Venom Melted items.
Those coldhearted Ice Symbiotes… they were once your fwiends! You has to save all 20 in the area… without slaying them! To melt the ice around them, you'll need to force them to feel the burn of Frostval's Flame. Knock them out so they can get fired up for Frostval once they wake!
- Song of the Frozen Heart
Go defeat Morice and watch the cutscene!
Dead Morice had so much magical potential. It is so sad that we Frostvale moglins didn't get to help him before his heart froze and turned so bitter! Now, to save Lore, you'll need to melt the ice in his soul! Out of the ice volcano… into the fire!
Congratulations, you have completed Frostvale up-to-date
