  • Speak with Gulmama to obtain quest. If you are positive that you have the required fame but she is not allowing you to undertake this quest, continue speaking with her until her text changes. Once you have received the key item: Tuning fork of ice, you can now safely undertake the quest.
  • Travel to Beaucedine Glacier and enter the ruins of Fei'Yin at (J-4). In Fei'Yin (Map A) travel to (G-9) and go down the stairs to the second map. In the basement (Map B) travel to (I-5) to find the entrance to the Cloister of Frost.
    • Preferably, home point to Fei'Yin #2. If you don't have it yet, make sure to grab it on the way.
  • Defeat Shiva Prime to receive the key item: Whisper of frost
  • Return to Gulmama with the whisper and she will provide several reward options including the ability to summon Shiva.


  • Up to 6 party members can enter the arena.
  • Each party member must have their own Tuning fork of ice
  • Time limit is 30 minutes
  • You can only select 1 of the rewards Gulmama offers at any time
  • You may repeat this quest once per Earth day.
  • You can save yourself a lot of time traveling to the Cloister of Frost by using the Mini Fork of Ice given by the quest Trial-Size Trial by Ice. You must be on Summoner as your main job, and obtain the Mini Tuning Fork from Castilchat, trade the fork back to Castilchat, but enter the Protocrystal normally. So long as you do not clear the level 20 version of the BC, you may warp to the Cloister of Frost as many times as you wish.
  • You may also choose to retain the whisper in order to complete the requirements for this quest: The Moonlit Path
