Description

In order to begin this quest you must first talk to Zebada at (F-12) in Ulegerand Range. He will give you a Rare/Ex item called a Cotton Pouch. Slide down at (E-9) and enter the cave at (F-8) and trade the Cotton Pouch to the Chamnaet Spring to get another Rare/Ex item called Chamnaet Ice. Go back to Zebada and trade it to him and he will give you the key item Zephyr Fan. This is the item needed to enter the battle.

Head to Bearclaw Pinnacle and prepare to enter. When you are ready, choose the battle When Hell Freezes Over. There is no cap on this fight, you have 15 minutes to win, and a max of 6 people can enter the battlefield.

You will battle 4 waves of snolls called Snow Devils. There will be a random amount of snolls ranging between 1 and 3 per wave. Beware of near instant blizzaga III casting. Defeat them all and you will receive items and 3,000 experience points.

Well as promised here is the update! We went back up the mountain to do "When Hell freezes over" I couldnt find a rdm so we went with a 68 ninja (BAIT ^^) and 5 blms (4 75s and 1 71) . Everyone but the ninja wanted to climb the mountain against my better judgement.. (I can make it up there in 10 minutes solo) and of course only two of us (of course one being me) made the ledge. so after 4 tractors and 4 r1s later, back up the hill we go. We get to the bcnm. Buff up.. nin turns the corner, aggroes first wave of bombs, booommmm blizzaga 3 dead.. next wave boom thundaga 3 dead... 3rd wave boom blizzaga3 , nin dies at this time and last wave comes at us.. yep u guessed it thundaga 3 ftw.

Stupid bombs never got a chance to do instacast blizzaga3 like last time but they did get off a few mighty strikes.. (PS how does a bomb do mighty strikes? they dont even have arms)

Actual battle time took about 3 minutes. This is unbelievably simple goin the burn way, any other way would seem really difficult to me but who knows... our drops were settlers cape and galatea..not bad ^^ next stop "Follow the White Rabbit"

All right! In my quest to defeat every single ENM in the game, I took my party to this one. Holy Cow was too easy, and Brothers was too much drama taking the whole group of noobs up the hill, so after wins at both of those, The ENM "When Hell freezes over" was next. I could not find hardly any information on this but I was able to piece some things together.

1. You get the key item for this one just like all of the other ulegurand range ENms talk to the galka jekaka as soon as you zone in, one person(me :-)) climbs the mtn, while the others wait patiently below the ledge to die. I slide down, tractor everyone up, head back to the the pond and trade the cotton pouch to get chamneat ice.

Warp back to vazhi, back to jekaka, trade your ice and get key item zephyr fan. now for "When hell freezes over, the vague directions told you to go fall into the hole at h-5, well as u start climbing that slope you will see a hole right on the border of h-5, it is not that one, it is the hole higher up on the slope. There are only two holes on the mtn so just fall in the top one. You only need sneak (before you drop) as there are only doom mages (skeletons) down there. you then make your way to h-6 which is easier said then done and you are at the bcnm. We had absolutely no idea what to expect except that we were gonna fight 4 waves of bombs.. pt setup i brought was nin whm blm rdm rdm smn I had wanted a bst but we couldnt find one.. The idea being that the smn would keep a mob busy while we tried to kill the other one/ones.

Wellllllllll soon as we turned the corner, even though we were way far away, here they come at us. 2 of them which is first wave. nin vokes, tries to kite, and smn sends ifrit at the other bomb. well the bombs didnt go for this strategy and after about 3 bizzaga 3 instacasts later.. we were all dead.

Bizzaga 3 instacast....gimmme a break. My team never loses ENMS so now this one is personal. sooo my strategy now is gonna be the classic. one rdm/nin to refresh and 5 blms to aga. A max of three bombs can appear each wave and 5 thundaga 3s should do the trick. then we can cast blizzaga 3 on the next one. hopefully we will have a few sec to rest and then thundaga 3 one more time followed by manafont for the win. That is my strategy so I will be back in a few days to let people know how it went. I really doubt that this can be done by anything besides maybe 5 smn and whm or 5 bst and whm or maybe 5 melee and a whm.. I do not think that a normal pt setup will work here.

After this one..... Last ulegurand range ENM follow the white rabbit /cheer

All I'm sure of, is that you fight a Snoll (bomb) named Snow Devil. not sure if it pops 1 or 10, but if its a Bomb battle, be prepared to bring BST or SMN to kill it, or die quite a bit yourself.
