Hello all! I hope you’ve had a wonderful holiday. Today we are going to go through everything up to the first battle with Hans, but I want to make a little note first. Over the weekend, I decided to do the unthinkable. I actually took some time off. While this was amazing for my mental health, it also meant that I did not chronicle things as well as I normally would for this portion of the event. That being said, today will be a bit more fun, and less about an actual walkthrough. If you have specific questions, feel free to leave them in the comments and I, or one of our amazing community members will be sure to help!
Searching for the Cause of the Storm
Last we left off, Elsa was desperately trying to prove her innocence. After all, an ice problem typically gets blamed on the ice queen.
Hans is apparently here on official business. I’m not sure what that business is exactly. I put Goofy in charge of customs in my Kingdom and he hasn’t exactly been doing a great job sorting out the riff raff. Plus he keeps letting in those stupid Snowgies. Goofy, I am disappointed in you buddy.
Before long, you’ll get a three part quest, which will have you sending Elsa, Anna and Kristoff to research a new lead as to what is causing the storm. I especially like that Kristoff is once again asking the trolls for advice. I’m sorry, but if they didn’t have an answer before, I’m willing to be they don’t have one now.
Elsa is having a tough time with her magic on account of not knowing what has caused the storm. I mentioned this in an earlier post and I’ll say it again here. This is the first time that I have legitimately enjoyed the story of this game. It has actually been a fun mystery to try and find out what is causing this snow storm that everyone seems to be over-dramatizing and the reveal, which we’ll get to in a moment, was genuinely surprising.
Mickey, you only ever talk to me when there’s a storm anymore. I thought we were closer than this. Fine, I’ll tap on some clouds.
You’ll need to tap 120 clouds. They will come in groups of 10 and refresh every hour, so as long as you stay on top of them, this should be a 12 hour quest.
Build the Ice Palace
At long last, Elsa decides it’s time to build her palace. And not a minute sooner.
Of course, this means they have to actually FIND the palace.
Elsa will need to be at level 3 for the palace to be available. It will cost 20,000 event currency and will take 8 hours to build. It is also ginormous so good luck fitting it anywhere. I have come to live by these words when placing structures in my park: “If it fits, it sits.”
Once built, though, it does look pretty stunning. This easily comes into my favorite structures of the game list.
Oh yeah, and Olaf has a quest…to do something…
Gearing up for a Fight
It turns out that Marshmallow, the giant snow monster that Elsa made, has fallen asleep and is causing the storm with his snoring. It’s a pretty good twist and makes the whole “Try to wake up Marshmallow” quest make more sense.
Wow, the only other person I know who can change the weather with their snores in my grandma. She’ll be relieved to hear she’s not alone.
Elsa has a pretty good idea that someone is behind this shady business.
Looks like Hans is the culprit after all. Well you know what that means, it’s time to corner him and through things at him for hours on end.
It’s actually interesting that the first quest to face Hans is not part of the battle, but a dual quest for Anna and Elsa which takes place at Arendelle Ice Rink.
Oh? Hans made a plan? And we didn’t? Well now I just feel cheated.
WAIT! He made TWO plans! This just isn’t fair.
Oh thank goodness, I knew the staff at Gameloft wouldn’t fail me. I knew we had to make a plan. We ALWAYS have to make a plan.
Or a strategy. Strategies are also a good thing.
Elsa makes sure her magic is in check before the battle. Honestly, this quest is not necessary to progress but it just looks so wonderful. How could I resist?
The First Battle
And with that, the battle is off. All 5 Frozen characters can partake and each quest will last 4 hours. You can absolutely do this without Olaf or Sven, it will just take longer. If you have all 5 characters, this quest should take you three rounds, clocking in at 12 hours total as the quest must be fulfilled 15 times.
I especially love Olaf sending his lower half to do the fighting for him.
Sven! Pull yourself together!!!
Honestly, the only one doing any good is Anna, who throws snowballs. Elsa just makes it snow. I’m sorry but that is just not the level of brute force we are looking for here.
And that’s where I leave you. By my next article, I should be ready to cover the last fight and everything you’ll need to unlock Hans. In the meantime, how are you doing? Do you think you’ll make it to the end? Did you sneak DMK under the table during Christmas Dinner? Let me know in the comments!
