Snild Snow Fields #1: Frostspire
Here’s the deal: we don’t actually get to visit this location at any point in time during Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris‘ main quests. Had I not noticed the northernmost exit in Raubal Greenbelt (the one near Cliffia Town), I would’ve forgotten that the Snild Snow Fields zone existed.
Anyway, you’ll see a map of Snild Snow Fields below:
It’s got one of the most splendid looking environments in Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris. Let’s not get too distracted, though, because we’ll need to head northwest.
Then, the mountain path will curve back to the southwest.
You’ll eventually reach Howmitz Village (which has a savepoint).
Leave the village and go northwest again. Just follow the snowy path.
The chest is at the end of the path.
Reward: Frostspire (rapier) – +69 damage; +4 critical; +32 Sacred Arts damage; “Instantaneous Stance” perk (+10% skill speed).
Snild Snow Fields #2: Frozen Blossom
Fast travel back to the initial area’s savepoint (the one closest to the entrance). Just like before, keep going northwest. However, don’t head southwest once the mountain path starts to wind that way.
Instead, keep going northwest until you’re able to jump down the ravine. There’s a savepoint here and you’ll find some wayfarers fighting a few insects or animals.
Ignore all of them and run all the way to the west. You’ll eventually spot a Clamp (which you should ignore as well).
Turn right and the tunnel will take you to one of the most breathtaking locations not just in Snild Snow Fields, but the whole of Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris — Frozen Lake Kleiss.
Look to your right and you’ll find the chest.
Just climb on top of the icy ledges and you’ll be able to get it.
Reward: Frozen Blossom (1H sword) – +66 damage; +30 Sacred Arts damage; “Mental Resonance” perk (+20% special accuracy, +20 speed charge resist, and +20 physical resist).
Before you leave this area, you should also look around. There’s a grey chest here that’s guarded by some armored shrew mobs. Kill them and you’ll get the Soul Incarnation attachment/mod (+50% ATK when your SP is low).
You just finished your western trek, and now it’s time to head to the east. Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris‘ fifth chapter takes you to the Eastavarieth region.
