The Chalk Prince and the Dragon is a Limited Timed Event and it first appeared on the 23rd December 2020 with it running through until the 5th January 2021. It consists of four phases which will unlock on different dates. The event is essentially a story quest for Albedo.

Dragonspine Introduction

The first thing you’ll notice about Dragonspine is the new gameplay mechanic Subzero Climate. What will happen is, whilst traversing the area you will start to get cold, this is called the Sheer Cold status and this is indicated by a blue meter above your Health bar.

The status will accumulate at approximately 1% a second, certain actions like swimming in the water or being in a Snowstorm will increase the rate even further, at around 3/4 of the meter, it will begin to flash, meaning in 30 seconds the Sheer Cold status will hit its peak dealing 2% of your Health a second.

To counter this status, you’ll need to find a heat source. Heat sources come in different varieties, Bonfires, cookpots, Torches, Ruin Braziers which can be activated and Warming Seelies, some food recipes such as Goulash will slow the rate that it accumulates. Teleport Waypoints and Statues of The Seven will also reset your Sheer Cold status.

The Second Experiment: The World


  1. Observe the installations in the camp
  2. Talk to the returning Albedo
  3. Cook some Sunshine Sprat and give it to Albedo
  4. Use Elemental Sight to look for the lost items

Observe the installations in the camp

There is three objects in the lab to examine:

  • Record Board: At the center back of the lab.

  • Shelf: Behind the Alchemy table on the left side of the lab.

  • Table: Middle right of the lab. (The same table you took the potion from in the previous quest)

(1 of 3) The Record Board is at the back of the lab

Talk to the returning Albedo

Head just outside the camp and speak to Albedo and you’ll get a cut scene.

Cook some Sunshine Sprat and give it to Albedo

Albedo will give you a new recipe for Sunshine Sprat, go into your inventory under the precious items category and use the recipe, then head to the cookpot in the lab. Sunshine Sprat requires 3 Butter, 3 Fish, 1 Salt and 1 Small Lamp Grass.

Once you have the ingredients, cook the dish and then return to Albedo.

Use Elemental Sight to look for the lost items

Once the cut scene has finished you will need to find two lost items in the lab using your Elemental Sight, these can be found:

  • On the Shelf behind the Alchemy pot, this will be the Electrostasis Powder.

(1 of 2) The items will glow when you look at them with Elemental Sight

The items will glow when you look at them with Elemental Sight (left), the second item is under the table you observed earlier. (right)

  • Under the table at the center right, this will be the Anemo Mark.

Talk to Albedo and hear his conclusions

Speak with Albedo and you will get a cut scene, after it has ended, the quest will finish.
