This is a seasonal task, appearing only through the Christmas season. This task follows the first one, "Gifts Ungiven".

Maynar Furrwik gives the task.

You say, 'Hail, Maynar Furrwik'

Maynar Furrwik looks at you, figuring out if you have the stamina to take on a major task. 'You know what really makes me angry? People who ruin what little joy others are able to eke out of their short and miserable lives, namely, that pack of miserable ice goblins that is trying to wreck our Frostfell celebrations. I can think of a few things I'd like to do to [vermin] like that.'

You say, 'What vermin?'

Maynar Furrwik says 'These miserable Frostclaw goblins have earned my wrath by capturing our kindly Santug Claugg and several of his Gigglegibber goblins. If it's a war they want, a [war] they shall get!'

You say, 'I will give them a war.'

Maynar Furrwik says 'Yeah, I have a job for you. I want you to take a force of adventurers, track down these miserable Frostclaws and make them dead. I think the Gigglegibbers who survived the first Frostclaw attack mentioned that they were set up somewhere in Permafrost Keep. Are you [willing] to take a stand, ______, and deal a blow to those who would malign our sacred traditions and joyful celebrations?'

You say, 'I am willing.'

Maynar Furrwik says 'Go and take care of our Frostclaw Goblin problem. I'll make sure it will be worth your while. Know that the ice goblin, Freezkorr, is the leader of their gang; get rid of him, and the others won't dare to interfere with our holiday ever again.'

You have been assigned the task 'The Frostclaw Lair'.

Maynar Furrwik has dispatched you to track down the Frostclaw Goblin lair inside Permafrost Keep and put an end to their plans to ruin Frostfell. Rescue the three gigglegibber goblins and Santug Claugg by destroying their ice cages. Put Freezkor to justice.

This takes place in an instanced version of Permafrost Keep. To zone in, head to the non-instancd Permafrost Keep. Once there, walk down the entry hall and you'll zone in automatically.

In this version of the zone, general zone population is stunnable and mezzable, and comes in variety of classes. Goblins flee at low health. Nothing sees invisibility except the named goblin, Freezkorr.

You'll need to "kill" the ice cages and kill Freezkorr, who's found in Lady Vox's lair. To get there, you'll need to go through the ice giant area (west from the entry cavern) which doesn't have any mobs, and then circle back around to the lair (which is the large cavern north of the entry cavern).

The goblins in Vox's room respawn relatively fast. The named can be single-pulled. If you are on the low end of the task's level range, you may find the zone mobs a bit difficult.



Free Santug and his gob friends from cages 0/4 (Permafrost Keep)

Kill Freezkorr 0/1 (Permafrost Keep)

Three of the cages are in the zone-in cavern. Santug's cage is in Vox's room (guarded by Freezkorr).

Freezkorr has been slain by _____!
Freezkorr's corpse says 'The chill of death embraces my goblin flesh, colder than any ice. Had you miserable people welcomed us to your Frostfell celebrations instead of flinching and turning us away, all this might never have happened.'

You say, 'Hail, Santug Claugg'

Santug Claugg says 'Bad Frostclaw goblins! Stealing me away and keeping me in an ice cage. They brought sadness to the children! But now you have found me and set me free, I must go and make sure Frostfell this year remains a happy occasion!'

Santug Claugg has escaped from Frostclaw captivity! Frostfell is saved!

Get quest, take magus to Everfrost Wayfarer Csmp, enter Permafrost (invis) then once into Permafrost as you go around the corner you will see 2 x Goblins as you approach them WITH THE QUEST you will zone into another 'Instance' Permafrost half way across the zone south of ther KING area.

If you Invis you can use pet to destroy all the cages, part 1 - 3/4 done.

You can then run invis to the small rock enterance to VOX in normal zone, Skelly Pets do not agro, even though they con agro, weird but true. You can use pet trick to destroy the last cage: part 1 - 4/4 done.

Freezkorr see's invis

I can deal with the 2 near the small rock door, then 2 to the left side but the rest all seem to chain agro.
Needs some CC here guess. Playing my Druid I'm horribly handicapped good spells are animal / outdoor.
Wiped 4 x (76 Druid / 71 Nec / 71 Pally + Mercs) and gave up.

A few things to note about this quest, be invis when you zone in, if your not you will get attacked by 4 or 5 goblins upon zoning it. Also if you are a pet class, you can send the pet at the cages to free the goblins and if you stay invis the mobs won't agro you.
