Act 4 - Uninvited Guests

  2. Head to the monster habitat to test the sword
  3. Defeat the surrounding opponents
  4. Follow Sucrose to the adventurer camp
  5. Defeat the Fatui who have come to take the sword
  6. Defeat the Resurgent Cryo Regisvine
  7. Uninvited Guests Event

Look for Albedo

Head to Albedo’s campsite and when you arrive there, you’ll find that he won’t be there, head towards his desk and there will be a cut scene.

Head to the monster habitat to test the sword

Go to the Entombed City Outskirts which is to the far west, once you get to the objective, a group of enemies will appear.

Defeat the surrounding opponents

You will have a battle which consists of two Large Cryo Slimes and two Cryo Slimes, defeat them with Pyro and Electro and then you will get a cut scene

Follow Sucrose to the adventurer camp

After the cut scene, head a little to the south and you’ll receive another scene, once it finishes you will have a battle.

Defeat the Fatui who have come to take the sword

The battle starts off with a Fatui Cryo Cicin Mage, these have a Cryo shield which is weak to Pyro and Electro and a few attacks to deal with:

  • Summon: Summons three Cryo Cicins.

  • Cryo Blast: AoE Cryo attack.

(1 of 2) Take out the Cicins to stop the Mage replenishing their shields

Take out the Cicins to stop the Mage replenishing their shields (left), go straight for the Hydrogunner as they can heal their allies. (right)

And a couple of Summon skills, the idea on how to fight these are to, kill the Cicins, otherwise they will replenish the shield of the mage, destroy the shield and then go to town with Pyro and Electro attacks. After defeating the Mage, another wave of enemies will come, this consists of one Geochanter Bracer, one Electrohammer Vanguard and one Hydrogunner Legionaire.

Take out the Hydrogunner first as it can heal its teammates and then the Geochanter next as it can shield its allies followed by the Electrohammer last, be wary of its attacks as it can deal major damage if you get hit by them.

Defeat the Resurgent Cryo Regisvine

You will also be fighting this as part of the event.

Once the battle has ended, you’ll get a cut scene and then another fight against a Cryo Regisvine. This isn’t a normal Regisvine and it will have some new mechanics, this can be a tough fight if you don’t know what you’re doing.

It has all the same moves as the regular Cryo Regisvine with some new mechanics sprinkled on top. First thing you’ll notice is the smaller Cryo Slimes in the battle, if you kill these, they’ll drop Scarlet Quartz which power up your next physical attack, so make sure to pick these up whenever you see them.

Next you’ll have to deal with the Sheer Cold status which will make you lose continuous health unless you get the Warm status which can be got by going to one of the three torches around the arena.

(1 of 3) Destroy the Seed of Winter as soon as you see the Regisvine’s power is about to erupt!

Lastly you’ll have the main mechanic which is an Icy Snowstorm, this can kill you very quickly unless you destroy the Seed of Winter. These appear around the arena as a small Ice Crystal near one of the torches, destroying these will create a force field around you negating the boss’s attacks, make sure to be in this when the boss casts Ice storm, you’ll know this is coming because you’ll receive a message prompt stating “The Cryo Regisvine’s power is about to erupt!”

Straight after the force field dissipates the boss will send three lots of Cryo spikes towards your path, best way to avoid this, is by running straight to the side and towards the boss as soon as the force field disappears and dodge if it gets to close for comfort.

The boss will repeat this for the remainder of the fight and your goal is to destroy its Corolla (head) or its Root (base) to knock it down and then attack it with a combination of Electro, Pyro and Scarlet Quartz physical attacks.

Once defeated, you’ll get a cut scene and finish the quest.

Uninvited Guests Event - Act 4

(1 of 3) The Event can be found at the Entombed City Outskirts

This event is called the Frostborn Miracle and it’s basically what you did at the end of the last quest. You will go to the Regisvine icon on the map which is in Entombed City Outskirts. The event is defeating the Resurgent Cryo Regisvine. This exactly the same fight other than, at the beginning of the fight, you’ll have to destroy a force field protecting the boss. To do this, defeat the normal enemies around the arena, pick up the Scarlet Quartz, then attack the three Ice crystals around it, this will start the fight.

After completing the event, you’ll receive a chest containing the currency called Miraculous Essence, you can use this in the Event Shop to purchase a variety of items but most importantly, the Crown of Insight and the Festering Dragon Marrow, this is a refinement material specifically for the Festering Sword and will increase its power. This challenge appears at the same location in Dragonspine which you can see when you go to your map by the Regisvine Icon.
