The all-new update 1.2 of Genshin Impact brings in a lot of new items and an entirely new region to explore. However, to explore this region, you will first have to unlock it. And to unlock Dragonspine in Genshin Impact, there are a lot many things to unlock as they are all connected. To begin with, you will have to unlock the Statue of the Seven in Dragonspine, and for that, you need to break the ice in front of the Statue. Hence, in this guide, we will show you how to easily break the ice in Dragonspine in Genshin Impact so that you can unlock and explore the entire area on your map.
Genshin Impact: How to Melt Ice
To break the ice in Dragonspine, you need to get a buff from a crystal called Scarlet Quartz. It is a crystal, similar to iron chunk and other crystals that you find in Mondtsadt and Liyue. Scarlet Quartz is a red-colored crystal scattered across Dragonspine. Hence, it won’t be too hard to locate this crystal.
All you need to do is locate the crystal and break it into shards. Upon collecting these broken shards, you will get a limited-time buff. This buff is what will let you melt ice in Dragonspine in Genshin Impact. However, since the buff is for a limited time, you need to ensure that you find a Scarlet Quartz that is close to the place where you want to break the ice.
Another thing worth noting is that Scarlet Quartz provides you with a buff, and it is not an item. Hence, you will not find this in your inventory, regardless of the fact that you use it within the time period or not. There is no point in collecting these shards without any need.
Now, since you know how to melt ice in Dragonspine, it is time to locate and unlock the Statue of the Seven to unlock the Dragonspine area on your map.
That’s everything you need to know about how to break the ice in Dragonspine in Genshin Impact. There’s also a new recipe titled Flaming Red Bolognese that you can cook. Here’s how to get the Flaming Red Bolognese in Genshin Impact.
