Ice Palace

Introduction

The Ice Palace is an area in Shilla where the Storm Giant has the Princess held captive. The quest can be done after you've done the Elemental Guardians quests.

The Ice Palace requires an Intelligence of 864, 960, or 1,056 depending on your race to enter.

Getting to the Ice Palace

There are four possible locations found in the Glacier where randomly (might be depending on which time of day) a portal will appear for you to enter the Ice Palace. The locations are located at Balder/Loki area, Yeti/Winged Serpent area, the Pirates area, and Blue Dragon/Ice Demon area.

If you want to go to one of the other locations a pattern exists for getting to them from the Balder/Loki area and is useful for finding the other creatures that reside in the Glacier. Eventually I will get the Glacier map done and this will look less complicated.

Once you enter the area, you can't exit it at all, so to leave it you've to use Teleport.

Training

The Ice Palace is the last training area before moving on to the Catacombs. The three groups of creatures are all Neutral aligned, making training here linear. Picking up food can result in a surprise attack from Mimic's, but mostly they're just an annoyance because you'll be able to easily defeat them. Avoid going too high in the Palace while training. The Storm Giant is a tough customer.

Map Layout

This map below is hard to explain, in a way. You start almost at the bottom layer, in the center. You can move West to further go down but you'll reach the bottom and can't go further. So it's better to go East, and you can go up further from there.

When you move up the floors, you're moving in a clockwise pattern, towards the top and the Storm Giant. So you keep moving, hitting the various creature groups until you see the top.

The map is below if you need help understanding it. Or just need a picture diagram.

Mimics

The Mimic is a creature that shows up in about 50% chance of picking up a dropped item in the Ice Palace. It attacks you for a very weak amount (about 6000 damage), but has the stats of most creatures in the area, generally if you can 1-round the bottom level of the Ice Palace, you will 1-round this as well.
