I'm going to be making a series of quest lists with plenty of pictures for each of the expansion packs. To specifically see which quests first direct you to or unlock the new areas, as well as which ones let you get clothing items and train dragons, you can read the Master List I'm putting together.

 

Here are some of the highlights from Icestorm Island. I would encourage you to post some of your favourite screenshots of this snow-covered treasure trove of historical insight.

Ice Caves Scenery

After completing this actic expansion pack, I took pictures of the main areas involved. I have one distance shot of the outside, but I'm sure that's already very familiar to many of you.

 

This was paradise in the middle of the iciest rock in the Archipelago.

 

From here I could see the Ice Caves, including the areas that were originally blocked off.

 

Of course, I was careful not to get a good look at the Ancient Ruins or the Treasure Room from up here until I had unlocked them. Now it has been a year and a half since I first discovered the ruins. (I embarked on this expansion in May two years ago but didn't receive the thermal clothes from the quest "Frostbite-Free" until [edit] three months later.)

 

Not counting waiting time for glitch fixes, these 50 quests took me [edit] two months to complete. Sorry, I switched the numbers.

Two months, but spread out

Well, I played through it for three weeks before encountering the glitch, then had 8 more quests I could do during the three months when I was waiting for a fix.

 

It was finally resolved at the beginning of September 2015, just before I went off to university, so I couldn't pay attention to the expansion until the end of the month. By the end of October I had done all the quests.

 

Even in those two months (May and October) in which I did over a dozen quests each, I still didn't play every day. If I only count the days when I progressed, it took about 33 days in total.
