Iris: On this mountain? Well, I can only say that it's more dangerous than any other place in Mondstadt.Iris: Apart from the harsh conditions, this mountain is also home to some strange... ice.Iris: It is incredibly hard to break, and will not melt when exposed to fire.Iris: Worst of all, a few roads have been blocked by this ice.Iris: Quite a few of our expedition teams have been forced to turn back after being blocked by ice barricades that they could not get around.Iris: *sigh* I wonder when we're going to find a way to get rid of that ice...
Iris: You're just going to have a look, right? If so, I remember that there was a large slab of ice of that kind on the mountain's outer boundaries. Who knows what's frozen inside it...Iris: You could have a look around there, but remember, it's best not to come this way again.
IrisIris: Since we've got a way to melt that ice now, that means I can continue organizing expedition parties to explore the mountain...
IrisIris: This is a sticky situation, indeed...

It has proved a major obstacle to our exploration as a result.Iris: Unfortunately, we have been unable to find a way to deal with that ice, so we've had to go around it...

• Investigate the strange ice
Iris
Iris: If you'd just like to have a look at the ice, you can just go to the place that I mentioned. For you own safety, don't go any further into the mountain.
• Go to the camp and ask for clues regarding the strange air current
Iris
Iris: You've already been that high up? That's very impressive. Still... a cavern blocked by a strange air current, you say? Let me think...Iris: We did have an adventure team that also got lucky enough to reach a point very high up the mountain.Iris: They couldn't get close enough, but they did report that a cavern nearby had a strange and powerful air current flowing out from it.Iris: But logically speaking, no air current in such a place should be that strong. No one knows the reason why, either...Iris: Apart from that strange air current, this mountain is also home to some very strange ice.Iris: This ice is incredibly hard to break, and will not melt when exposed to fire. It has proved a major obstacle to our exploration as a result.Iris: We have been unable to find a way to deal with that ice, so we've had to go around it...Iris: What's more, blue plants are often found growing near this ice.Iris: I could vaguely see that there was something encased within the ice. But since I was unable to melt it, catching a glimpse of it was as far as I got...Iris: If you're interested, you can follow the trail of blue plants to have a look at that ice.Iris: Let me think... I believe that the Snow-Covered Path, the Entombed City Outskirts and the Starglow Cavern are home to many of those blue plants. You can go and check them out.Iris: A strange, powerful air current, bizarre ice, and odd plants...Iris: Hahaha, if this was your standard tale of adventure, there would be some link between these three.Iris: But in real life, it's best to be practical when adventuring... Make sure you prepare yourself sufficiently before heading up Dragonspine, you hear?
• Thaw all the shards out
Iris
Iris: If you've a mind to, you can head to the area around the Snow-Covered Path, the Entombed City Outskirts and the Starglow Cavern to have a look. I remember seeing many of those blue plants there.
HarrisHarris: Just a few more ingredients to go...
Harris: Hmm? Ah, Traveler. I'm just adding the finishing touches to an ancient recipe.Harris: Not long ago, a team of explorers went on an expedition into the mountains. One of them is a friend of mine, an adventurer.Harris: They didn't make it very far due to bad weather conditions. But, my friend did tell me that they happened upon an ancient ruin while they were taking shelter from the storm.Harris: It was full of books and other records. Even... even a recipe. I don't know how it has survived intact for this long...Harris: My adventurer friend passed the recipe on to me. He hopes I can revive the taste of the past.Harris: In fact, I've never even heard of some of the ingredients that the recipe requires. Even some of the cooking techniques are new to me.Harris: So, I'm cooking a modified version which only uses the most essential ingredients...Harris: Would you be willing to help me gather the unusual ingredients from the recipe?
Harris: Nice to see you're so enthusiastic about this.Harris: I heard that a few boar somehow got lost in the mountains and became encased in ice... I'm curious to find out how such an ordeal affects the flavor of the meat.Harris: So, perhaps you could fetch me ten portions of Chilled Meat.
Harris: Yes, as in the meat of those frozen boar. Being encased in ice must keep it pretty fresh, don't you think? So, when someone tells me about some poor boar trapped in the ice, all I hear is "Chilled Meat"...Harris: Thanks for doing this for me. Come and find me once you've got the ingredients.

PaimonPaimon: Eek! That thing just flew up into the air... Looked like it was going towards the mountain's summit.Paimon: Shall we go and have a look around? Or should we go back and ask someone about the situation?
• Continue upwards to investigate
• Report back to Iris
Iris
Iris: Oh? You're back. How did it go? Did you see the ice— Huh. You're in... quite a state, aren't you?
Iris: You've already been that high up? That's very impressive. Still... a cavern blocked by a strange air current, you say? Let me think...Iris: Ah, that reminds me. We did have an adventure team that also got lucky enough to reach a point very high up the mountain.Iris: They couldn't get close enough, but they did report that a cavern near the summit had a strange and powerful air current flowing out from it.Iris: But logically speaking, no air current in such a place should be that strong.

• Thaw all the shards out
Iris
Iris: Perhaps you've already noticed, but that slab of ice is surrounded by a great many blue plants.Iris: I believe that those plants may be related in some way to the shard frozen in the ice.Iris: If you wish to continue looking for those shards on Dragonspine, I'd say that you might have some luck following the trail of those blue plants.Iris: I believe that the Entombed City Outskirts and Starglow Cavern are home to many of those blue plants. You can go and check them out. Perhaps you might discover something.

Iris: What? You encountered the strange ice... and you were able to melt it?Iris: H—How can this be? How did you do it? Huh... There were strange crystals nearby?Iris: You can use those to melt through the ice? I see, I see... Looks like I'll have to investigate this thoroughly...Iris: Well, let's put that aside first. Looking at you, I suppose you want to continue going deeper into the mountain, yes?

PaimonPaimon: Huh? The icy surface under the pillar has completely shattered. Looks like there's a huge space underneath it, too. Let's go check it out.
• Investigate the area below
• Report back to Iris
Iris
Iris: There's a strange, huge pillar floating in mid-air at the summit? To think that there would be such a thing atop Dragonspine...Iris: And there's a huge space below the ice under the pillar? That's... even weirder.Iris: This is... inconceivable. Thank you. I will send explorers up there as quickly as we can to see what's happening there.Iris: Ah, yes, I should thank you for helping us open the way to the summit. Please take these as thanks.Iris: It seems Dragonspine really does have its secrets after all.Iris: I do hope our next expedition will yield some new discoveries.
