Icebound Geode is a gathering quest in the starting zone of Diablo 4 that might keep you from fully completing all Fractured Peaks side quests.
The Icebound Geode quest is similar to the Frostbloom quest, as both require gathering an item and returning it to a vendor in Kyovashad.
However, instead of gathering herbs to find the required quest item, you will have to do some mining in a specific area.
Although the side quest may seem fairly easy, certain players may encounter some difficulties locating the Icebound Geode due to an important requirement that we will explain below.
As such, in the following Diablo IV guide, we will provide you with all the information you need to complete the Icebound Geode side quest.
How To Start Icebound Geode Quest in Diablo IV
D4 Icebound Geode is a secret quest that does not display a starting location with an exclamation mark like other side quests.
It is also one of the two missing side quests in Fractured Peaks that holds back many players from completing the region.
In order to embark on the Icebound Geode side quest, it is mandatory to complete the story campaign. Only then will the quest become accessible and available to tackle it.
Once you have completed the story campaign, your next task is to locate the Icebound Geode quest item by mining Ore Veins in a particular subregion within Fractured Peaks to start the quest.
Where To Find Icebound Geode Quest Item in Diablo 4
To find the Icebound Geode quest item, travel to Yelesna using the waypoint and interact with Ore Veins in the Gale Valley of Fractured Peaks region.
It doesn’t matter if it is a regular Ore Vein or a Glittering Ore Vein.
If you don’t know the boundaries of the Gale Valley subregion, we’ve marked it on the map below.
Keep interacting with the Ore Veins in the Gale Valley until one of them drops the Icebound Geode quest item. Then, pick it up to start the side quest.
Where To Find Kratia in Diablo IV
After collecting the Icebound Geode, you’ll have to bring the quest item to the Jeweler Kratia.
Fast travel to the capital city of Kyovashad in the Fractured Peaks region, go to the marked location and talk to Jeweler Kratia.
Kratia will be excited about your finding and mentions that it’s been a while since she last saw a geode.
How To Buy Acid Flux From Idania in Kyovashad
To get the gems inside the geode, she suggests using a special acid flux, which you can get from Idania, who recently received rare reagents from Hawezar.
Once you’ve finished your conversation with Kratia, interact with Idania, the Rings & Amulets Vendor. She’s standing next to Kratia in the same room.
Then, select the Acid Flux quest item from her inventory and buy it for 10 gold.
Where To Find the Jeweler’s Tools in Icebound Geode Quest
The Jeweler’s Tools are on a table near the shop entrance and on the opposite side of Idania.
Use them to extract the gems inside the geode to complete the Icebound Geode quest in Diablo 4.
As a reward for completing the quest, you’ll receive 20 Renown Points for the Fractured Peaks region, a Gem Cache, Gold, and XP scaled to level.
