Confused about where to start? Don’t know where to get your quest items?

Hope this Guide helps you out

Introduction
Hello all, Valkrin here. I’ve seen various threads on Katovic Snowfield and its quests scattered all over , so I thought I’d condense them into this guide which I’m working on. Suggestions and help are greatly appreciated ^^

FAQ

1) How do I go to Katovic Snowfield?
Ans: Take the waypoint to The Lava Plateau of Joaquin. From there, head up to Scorching Plateau, run pass Ferrucio Wall and then you’ll be in Katovic Snowfield

2) What is the minimum level I have to be?
Ans: If you want to survive, be at least veteran. Bring lots of potions, and go with a friend. More’s the merrier in a harsh place where monsters hit hard.

3) What level equips should I wear?
Ans: +6 E84 with DR3or +7 lv100 armour with DR3 at least.

4) Help, I put the material into the loom/shelf/anvil and its gone!!
Ans:

When you have successfully manufactured the items, PICK THEM UP, or they will disappear after time.

BUT!

“The Item Vanished” = Wrong Item on the Wrong Anvil/Shelf/Loom
“Failed to Manufacture” = Rigth item on rigth equipment but the manfuacture failed.

5) What does the Avalanche Apparition look like?
Ans: see this

6) Erm, how do I get the Red Jewel Fragment from the Avalanche Apparition? Its too hard!
Ans: Look at this guide to solo-ing this mob

ETS I removed her weapon so she can ESP (PF) and Cure.

Cath (the Damage) Wooden Controller +5 with 1AR and 2 Sasha Rings.

Tactic of Solo: Tricky Part #1 Finding Him, Tricky Part #2 Pulling him to a safer spot since he always pop in a mob infested area.

Most of the time only my Fighter would still be alive by the time i find Avalanche, so I have to pull him to the side or some area with less mobs as “camp”. Once he is near camp I save a Warp Point there and Go back Barracks to get my Team.

Once back PF ETS then Fighter and let the Fighter Melee Avalanche abit for hate and SP.

Then position Avalanch so that only fighter is in front (with some gap) and provoke every now and then. And ETS and Cath are behind.

Keep PF on ETS and Fighter. When he uses his “Soul Attack” switch to Cure Stance and Cure All Fighter.

Cath’s Dolls will make short work of Avalanche in about 6 mins.

Hope this helps.

Either that, of you can buy it from the Market Manager, or broad to see who’s selling.

OR

1) Go to Island of Fire (1st/2nd/3rd) on Bahia.
2) Farm Strange Minerals.
3) Exchange them with the ore exchanger on Bahia Island.

**It depends on your luck, but Red Jewel Fragment CAN be gotten from exchanging.**

7) How do I start the Rescue Knights Quest?
Ans: Have either Ice Crystal or Philosopher’s Stone in your inventory, or talking to her will be useless.

8) Can I cancel the Rescue Knights Quest if I want to stop doing it?
Ans: Yes you can, just speak to her to cancel.

9) Can I buy recipes from the Rescue Knight after I have made an item?
Ans: Yes you can.

10) What type of chars should I bring?
Ans: Your basic aoe types. Like Levitation Wiz, Elementalist (lightning braces), Catherine the Summoner

11) How long does the portal for the Ice Wizard Tower stay open?
Ans: For 10 to 15 mins.

12) Can I go inside the Ice Wizard Tower if I did not complete the Katovic Quest up to AA?
Ans: Yes you can, if you tag along with someone who did it.

13) I’m having problem with the Ice Wizard Tower of the quest. Help!
Ans:

2) apparently, if you run into the tower through someone else’s warp, the game will take it that you’re tagging along without having thrown the red jewel into Rynin’s heart, regardless of whether you’ve thrown it or not.

3) in order to find out if you opened the warp BY YOURSELF, look for the message that says “Because all Katovic quests have been completed, you have been granted access to the Ice Wizard Tower”…if you entered through someone else’s warp, the message will say “The entrance to the Ice Wizard Tower has been opened”

14) What does the Black Magic Stone effect look like?
Ans: See this:

15) What must I do to get rid of the Black Magic Stone effect?
Ans:

16) What does the Glacial Lily look like?
Ans: Take a look at this pic:

17) Must I finish the Katovic Quest to unlock Garcia Hingis?
Ans: Yes, you need to complete the Katovic Quest up to manufacturing the Katovic Soup. Also, you need to complete the pioneering quests up to Bahamas Swamp.

Walkthrough

Before we begin, a map of Katovic Snowfield:

First, talk to Ludeza Vishihah at I/J6 of Katovic Snowfield. He will introduce himself and give you the first quest

1) The Missing Village

Find 2 boxes and a cask

Go over to I4 and click on them and a ghost eye will appear

Reward: 3 lvl 90 exp card (85k exp)

2) The Investigation of Strange Waters

Click on the 3 Eltetah (tree like thing)

Go all the way up to C3. Click on the 3 Eltetah. Some worms will appear when you click on them.

Reward: 3 lvl 90 exp card (85k exp) and 1 Manzana Filler

3) Snow Storm Apparition

Kill 50 of them to get eye of the ghost, common mob at Frozen Plain (lvl 108 and above)

Reward: 1 lvl 90 exp card (85k exp)

4) Avalanche Apparition

Bring the red jewel fragment to Ludeza

Reward: 1 lvl 90 exp card (85k exp)

5) The Power From An Unknown World

place the red jewel fragment in the heart of Ryrin (E6 in the cave in the Frozen Plain map)

Reward: 3 lvl 90 exp card (88k exp)

A map of the Frozen Plains:

He also gives you access to the Ice Wizard Tower. You need to go to the Snowfield of the Ice Wizard, K5. YOU WILL ONLY SEE THE NPC AT CHANNEL 1. Talk to the NPC there, and she will grant you access to the Ice Wizard Tower.

6)(i) Enter the Ice Wizard Tower, then relog or use a warp scroll to leave.

(ii) Return to Katovic Snowfield and talk to Ludeza. He will ask you to speak to Invierno in Frozen Plains. Go to D7 of Frozen Plains. Speak to him a few times and he will give you a quest.

7) Trace of Cruelty (chain quest)

(i) First, you need to make the soup. 50 wolf meat, 50 beet, 50 Cabbage, 20 Golden apples

(ii) Bring the materials to him, he will ask you to give him

Hub Bunch 0/1
Pocket of Seed 0/1
Piece of Letter 0/1

All 3 are around the destroyed camp in Snowfield of the Ice Wizard, E8-9. Hub Bunch is in the box, the other 2 will go inside your inventory once you go near them.
Note: The Piece of Letter is to the extreme right of the box. The Seed is here:

Very annoying to find, hope my SS helps you to estimate the distance from the box. And you HAVE to be on foot.

(iii)Once you get everything you need, go back to Invierno who will tell you to put the ingredients in the pot beside him. You will manufacture Katovic Soup. After that, talking to him will give you these options:

Choosing the 2nd option will show you this:

He will reply thus for the 3rd option:

(iv) Now you need to return to Ludeza in Katovic Snowfield. Do so, and you receive your reward.

Reward: (2 lvl 84 Enchantment chips)

(v) But we’re not done yet. Go back to Invierno to ask him about the Ice Witch aka Novia again. And this is what he says:

(vi) After giving you Sweet Honeycomb, he tell you to get a bear’s gall bladder. Go up to D/E5 and click the stone there. A bear will spawn, kill it for the bladder.

For those who can’t handle it on your own, good news – you can do it by squadding, I’ve tested it and it works ^^. Now, back to Invierno. Talk to him, and select any option (I chose to ask about Ice Wizard Tower) and this is he will tell you:



Apparently he won’t entertain any more questions after that, so go back to Ludeza and receive your reward.

Reward: (2 lvl 84 Enchantment Chips)

And this is the end of the Katovic Snowfield Pioneering Quest.

***reserved for more info***

Side Quest: Katovic Rescue Knight – Manufacturing!

First, talk to the Rescue Knight beside Ludeza. She will let you choose ONE from the Philosopher Stone’s Set/Ice Crystal Set to make NORMAL lvl 100 EQUIPS. Talk to her again for her to give you permission to use her loom/shelf/anvil.

To see what the manufactured equips look like, see Arconis’s thread
