Anna will ask you to help her find a place for Elsa so she can feel like it’s made just for her. She will show you an Ice Cavern on the other side of the Forest of Valor, but the tree stumps are blocking the bridge from crossing.
Follow her to the bridge in the Forest of Valor and talk to her about how you can remove the tree stumps blocking the way.
The Right Book In Anna’s House During An Icy Invitation Quest
Then, she suggests the answer to the problem might be in one of her books about mystical flora and fauna in her library.
Enter Anna’s House, the frosty blue building in the east part of the Forest of Valor, and look for an orange book on a table near the bookshelves.
Bring the book to Anna, and she’ll tell you that you need to gather a few materials to upgrade the magic shovel to remove the tree stumps touched by Dark Magic.
How To Craft Shovel Blade In An Icy Invitation Quest
So, to upgrade your magic shovel, you will need to collect the following materials: Softwood (x10), Hardwood (x4), Iron Ingot (x4), and Tinkering Parts (x3).
Softwood can be found all over the Dreamlight Valley, and it looks like a couple of branches on top of each other.
Hardwood can be found early on in the Forest of Valor and Glade of Trust, and it looks similar to Softwood but has a slightly reddish-brown color.
Iron Ingot is a craftable material found under the Refined Material tab in the Crafting Station. To craft Iron Ingot (x4), you will need to collect Iron Ore (x20) and Coal Ore (x4).
To find Iron Ore, mine the Rock Spots around the Forest of Valor and Glade of Trust edges.
Tinkering Parts is a craftable material that can also be found under the Refined Material tab. To craft Tinkering Parts (x3), you’ll need to gather Iron Ingot (x2).
So, to craft the Shovel Blade upgrade, you will need to gather Softwood (x10), Hardwood (x4), Iron Ore (x30) – for the Iron Ingots and Tinkering Parts – and Coal Ore (x6).
Craft the Iron Ingots (x6) first, the Tinkering Parts (x3) second, and finally, the Shovel Blade upgrade.
Now, use the Shovel Blade in your inventory to permanently upgrade your magic shovel.
Then, return to the wooden bridge in Forest of Valor, equip your magic shovel, and clear the 3 tree stumps blocking the way.
Once you clear the three stumps, talk to Anna to tell her the bridge is clear, then follow her to the Ice Cavern.
Inviting Elsa To The Village In An Icy Invitation Quest
Speak to Anna again when you get there and agree to take a photo for Elsa to see the Ice Cavern.
Equip the camera from the tools menu, take a picture of the Ice Cavern and show it to Anna.
She will compliment your photography skills and give you her letter to bring the picture and the letter to Elsa in the Frozen Realm.
Travel to Frozen Realm to meet Elsa and give her Anna’s Letter. She will be pleased to hear from her sister and decides to join the Village after she takes care of a few things first.
Return to Anna in the Village and tell her the good news, which will conclude An Icy Invitation quest, unlocking the next quest in line named Welcoming Elsa.
