Ice Wizard's Grizzleheim & Celestia Crafted Clothing

Grizzleheim Clothing

     When you enter Sudrilund, run around the mob of Coven Frostbeaks and Darkwing Choppers, and up the bridge. If you look past the mob of Darkwing Hewers and Darkwing Choppers, you will see a burning cauldron off in the distance. Carax Stringthread is standing just behind that cauldron, you should be fine if you stick to the path - the mob doesn't venture out into it here.

     Ice wizards are going to need both Colossus and Frostbite Treasure cards - a total of 4 of each. As far as reagents go, this outfit is really easy on your supplies. The most you'll need of anything is 27 Blood Moss. You'll also need 24 Perfect Sapphire, but you can buy those from many reagent vendors. Click on any of the set titles below to see the full list of ingredients required.

     In the tradition of typical Ice equipment, this outfit give a very nice health boost. Real close to an extra ONE THOUSAND health. All I can say to that is dang. I'm seriously jealous lol. Ice wizards also receive an extra boost to their Global Critical Rating, I don't believe we have seen that in any other school's equipment sets here in Sudrilund yet.

Celestia Clothing

     If you caught my last article, this will be a tad bit repetitive. But it needs to be said for those who are just joining us, because instead of having separate vendors based on school, here in Celestia you will find only 3 vendors. Hamish Willoughby will be the first vendor that you run into when you get to The Grotto. He's fairly easy to find since he is in a cage and isn't likely to wander off. He has a collection of various hat recipes. Once you progress to Stormriven you will run into Enid Crowe. She can bestow boot recipes upon you. Eventually, you will make your way to the Science Center and Humphrey Thatcher, the vendor that sells robe recipes.

Warning from Dezzy:

     To make all 3 items in the Celestia outfits, you are going to need to collect 7 - 9 Colossus Treasure Cards, depending on which outfit you intend to make. You are going to need Shell, Aquamarine, Aether and Springs for all of the clothing sets here in Celestia. The amounts really vary by recipe but those reagents seem to be a pretty consistent requirement. The remainder of the ingredients are simple to come by for the amounts needed. Just click on the set title to view the full list of ingredients necessary to make the entire set: the hat, robe, and boots.

Frozen Set of Harmony
Ice/Balance

     The Celestia clothing for the Ice/Balance school combination gives less health but extra boosts for just about every other aspect. It would be a tough call here, but I think I would be tempted to choose the Celestia gear over the Grizz clothing in this situation. You know what I don't get? It looks like armor and yet gives absolutely no resistance at all.

Set of Cold Curses
Ice/Death

     You know that I gotta say it - I wouldn't be caught dead in either one of these hats. Other than that, I really like the look of this Celestia clothing. Plus you don't see many people wearing it - ever. The Grizzleheim gear gives a boost of 88 more health than the Celestia equipment, that's a lot. However, the perks to the rest of the properties that you'll find in Celestia really makes me think that might be the best choice for Ice wizards. Especially if you use your secondary schools on a regular basis. 100 critical rating boost for a secondary school is really nothing to sneeze at!

Ice Burnt Set
Ice/Fire

     Was I just impressed with the Global Critical Rating boost of the last outfit? Pfft, here the secondary school gets a boost of 110 to their Fire spells. Ice/Fire combination is what our own Emma Icecrafter has chosen. She informs me that she plans to have both of these outfits. The Grizzleheim gear for when she is doing her tank thing in a group, and the Celestia clothing for when she is alone and needs the extra power. Very good points there Emma, thank you for your input.

Frozen Tale Set
Ice/Myth

     You won't hear me admit this very often but I think that I might could live with that hat in this Celestia outfit. We've definitely seen worse - heck, I've worn worse. I love the boots too. The robe however, looks pretty stiff and not at all comfortable. The default colors in this style really go nicely with the Ice blue. The properties for Ice spells are pretty much the same that we have seen previously. Seems like the main differences between the Celestia outfits are just what boosts the secondary schools receive.

Wintersoul Set
Ice/Life

     Wizards that have chosen Ice/Life school combination will receive a hefty 44% damage boost to Life spells with this Celestia clothing outfit. That would make for a really nice Centaur, especially since Celestia is where we first gain access to enchantments like Giant to add even more damage to hits. Fashion-wise this outfit is a bit dorky unless you want to embrace the alien nature of this world. It does look really nice with the Ice colors at any rate.

Snowstorm Set
Ice/Storm

     Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner! 120 boost to secondary school Critical Rating! Holy Cow! Often any wizard that chooses Storm as either their primary or secondary schools will end up giving up health boosts to compensate for the high power. This is not the case here. There isn't much flair in the fashion sense, and I would almost expect to see this style of clothing around the digs in Krokotopia. You definitely wouldn't expect serious storm power coming from anyone wearing this set of clothing which could be misleading to your PVP opponents.

     You can have many options if you carry both sets of crafted clothing. You might end up looking a bit eccentric, but you CAN always mix the clothing and wear the boots from Celestia with the hat and robe from Sudrilund. Level 55+ is where wizards really get a bit of freedom to fine tune their crafted gear to their own preferences.

     Please keep in mind that the numbers above reflect the properties given when the entire set is worn together. I have provided a link to the Dezzy's Closet page of our website that gives the clothing recipe and info for the sets, and the names of the individual items that make up the sets - just click on the set title. These pages are not yet available through our site but I have given exclusive early access to our blog readers!
