M39 – Exit to Oldsong.
Noonfrost is a medium-sized underground location that you can enter while in Oldsong. You visit here, mainly to complete the Into the White Void quest, which you receive from god Rymrgand in Teir Evron. The Northern chambers in this location are initially inaccessible and, at each attempt to enter, your party may be attacked by nearby NPCs. Fortunately, there is a safe passage to The Frost-Hewn Breach (which is connected with the abovementioned quest), across the Western chambers.
Important places in Noonfrost
1. The first chamber
From Vesgel, you learn that there is no entry to some of the areas of the temple. You may be attacked if you ignore the warning guards at the inaccessible passages (M41,4) or if you open one of the locked doors.
2. The chamber with the Blue Crystal Key
The key is locked up. Before you collect it, wait for the guards leaves the room. You can use the key to open the Western passage (M41,3).
5. Side room
Another key is locked up in a chest. If you manage to pick the lock, you will gain access to the easier way to the Northern part of the temple (M41,6).
7. The office
In the Stealth mode, you can find the switch and use it to move a fragment of the wall.
In the office, there is an interactive altar. If you manage to disarm the advanced trap on it, you obtain a rare staff.
8. The Frost-Hewn Breach
Rymrgand's quest: Into the White Void - Kill Glasvahl and all of his company, or try to solve the problem in an amicable way (appropriate dialogue options).
9. The Library
Here, you find the silver key to the locked room in the Northern part of the temple (M41,10).
10. Locked room
Side quest: Prison of Ice - Use the silver key that you find in the library and free the imprisoned Alwah.
Important NPCs in Noonfrost
Vesgel (M41,1) - She bids you welcome, after you enter the temple.
Glasvahl (M41,8) - Meet him during the main quest from god Rymrgand.
Alwah (M41,10) - You can rescue her, by the request of Larha, from the Galawain's Maw (M40,4).
Other important information, in connection with Noonfrost
If you do not want to be attacked, along your path to The Frost-Hewn Breach, rely on stealth and obtain the keys: first the blue one in the Eastern chamber (M41,2) and the white key in the Southern storage (M41,6). The only problems you may have is while opening the chest with the second key, because someone on the party needs to have Mechanics of, at least, 5 points (an preferably of 6 points - you need no lockpicks then).
