The Iceclad Ocean consists of two parts, the open ocean between it and the other continents of Norrath, and Icy Fingers, a series of small fragmented islands that lead to the continent of Velious itself. The Icy Fingers have long been the home of outsiders to Velious, starting with the ancient Tower of Frozen Shadow, up until now where the original gnomes who drove Icebreaker here are now busy becoming pirates. This is also the home of the Icepaw Gnolls, and one arm of the huge Graitspaign lies here.
The Danger Zones for Hunting EverQuest Platinum
The Iceclad Ocean’s largest danger is the monsters that roam the islands, but compared to other areas of Velious, they are not that dangerous. They are typically spread out and easy to avoid. The largest problem is that the islands have very steep sides to them, and this can cause you to not see a monster until you are upon it.
The portal spot here is also not very safe for hunters of EverQuest Platinum. People will often hang out here or, even worse, pull to here. This means that when you appear in the zone, fresh to the new continent, you stand a good chance of getting jumped by some monster that was pulled here or just happened to wander by. Be careful and be ready to run when you arrive.
Benefits and EverQuest Platinum in the Freezing Ocean
Iceclad Ocean is largely known as a transit zone between the continent of Velious and the other continents of Norrath. Wizards and Druids can port to within this zone, very near to the bridge to the rest of Velious. Also, melee types can be bound at the dock located here.
This area provides very good hunting that is also relatively safe. The cougars are what most people hunt for EverQuest Platinum, and are aggressive but not immediately, and are generally not mixed in with aggressive creatures. The monsters are also a bit more spread out in Iceclad, making hunting generally safer.
