Developed by Dreamside Interactive, Frozen Flame mixes Survival Action and RPG in a single adventure. While hunting down monsters and earning XP, you’ll also find collectables! In this category, we have the Cursed Instruments. Don’t let that fancy name scare you: you don’t need to sell your soul to obtain them and the rewards will be worth it!

All Cursed Instruments Guide – Frozen Flame

Once you obtain your first Portal Core, you’ll be sent to the Sky Islands. There, you should interact with Hornhead and complete the quests he gives you to unlock the ability to fly.

After you’re done, Hornhead will mention a character named the Bard and how you should find his island and meet him despite his lack of talent.

And that’s the beginning of the quest for the Cursed Instruments!

With your flying ability, you’ll now have to visit four different islands and complete challenges to acquire the Cursed Instruments. I’ll provide an explanation and an order of each, but they can be done in any sequence.

Cursed Instrument 1

Skelly Island houses a character named Skelly, and that’s whom you’ll want to find.

Skelly will ask you to play a tune with runes at the graveyard. He’ll also say there’s a book with hints in case you’re lost on what to do.

You’ll find four gravestones with symbols on them, each a different colour. When you examine the stone, it will play a tune, which you need to replicate by interacting with the gravestones in the correct order.

The book mentioned by Skelly is close by, at the foot of a tree, and the hints are straightforward, but here is the sequence: green, blue, red, yellow.

With the puzzle completed, go back to Skelly to receive one of the Cursed Instruments.

Cursed Instrument 2

You can find another Cursed Instrument on Copper Island. Inside the building, you’ll find the ghost of a Treasure Hunter.

Speak to this NPC and he’ll mark three locations on your map. You need to go to those locations (all on the same island, don’t worry!) and collect ancient coins.

All three coins collected, you return to the Treasure Hunter, and he’ll give you a flute. You can take the flute to the Bard for him to summon Selena for you.

Cursed Instrument 3

Arguably the hardest to get is the Cursed Instrument on Fallen Pilgrims Island.

Find a massive tree and fly upwards until you can get inside the trunk. There, you’ll find Woodhead, who will give you the task of hunting down a poisoned boar. If you need, you can buy potions and blueprints from him to prepare yourself for the inevitable battle.

Locating the boar (specific location circled red in the map below) can prove terribly frustrating because the game doesn’t tell you that you need an item to summon it. And that item is the scalding broth. For that, you’ll need a mushroom and a beetle.

Next, you’ll need to harvest resources nearby to mount a campfire so you can craft the broth.

The boar itself isn’t too difficult; the complication comes from the poison damage that both the boar and the area around it deal.

If you have good ranged weapons, you can try to keep your distance from the boar, circling it at the same idea you keep shooting at it.

Once defeated, the boar will drop normal hide, poisoned hide, and XP. Take the hides to Woodhead and he’ll give you the Cursed Tambourine.

Earning your last Cursed Instrument will also unlock the achievement “Cursed Melody”. There’s also a chest below Woodhead for more sweet loot.

Depending on the order you got the instruments, you might have to talk to the Bard. If not, go straight to Chronos. He’ll award you with gold and more rewards.

Frozen Flame: INFINITE Bones, Fabric & XP Farm Guide – Get Unlimited Resources & Masks Fast

Your crafting problems are over!

Released on November 17, 2022, Frozen Flame is a game that blends Survival Action and RPG. Fans of both genres will already expect levelling up, various biomes and enemies, collectables, and crafting! While part of the genre’s structure, crafting can be difficult if you don’t know how to obtain the necessary resources. Are you having a similar headache? Fret not! Read this guide for some tips and tricks to help you!

INFINITE Bones, Fabric & XP Farm Guide – Get Unlimited Resources & Masks Fast – Frozen Flame

Bones and fabric are two important crafting resources in Frozen Flame. And what if I tell you there’s a way to get as many of those resources as you can get? And that, in the meanwhile, you can also get loads of XP?

Sounds too good to be true? Well, maybe… but you’ll see that it works!

Fabric Farm

There are two farming locations.

The first and most efficient (and the one that will also give you Masks if you want to add more to your collection) is the Cradle of Keepers, the starting area of the game, where you can farm fabric.

Before leaving your house, equip some weapons to help you: the bone bow and bone staff are good options.

From the southwest portion of the island, you’ll want to fly northwest and find a cave. You can check out the exact location and the cave’s appearance in the screenshots below:

Inside this cave, you’ll find a huge encampment of humanoids as well as the purple mists that spawn Mobs.

The strategy here is to trigger the mob spawn then walk backwards and start killing them with your bow.

However, you don’t want to kill all the enemies! Keep one or two alive, walk further backward and wait until the mist reappears.

This is the sign that a new mob wave is ready to respawn. Go inside the encampment and retreat again, repeating the process of shooting and respawning them until you’re satisfied with the number of corpses littering the cavern’s floor.

Then, kill every enemy and remain inside the encampment. Loot all the corpses, and you’ll be impressed with how much fabric you earn with this simple strategy!

Bones + Fabric Farming

Broken Valley is the second farming spot and the place you go if you need bones and fabric.

First, fast-travel to the first quick-travel spot in the Broken Valley, where you completed the quests for Hornhead. And what you’ll do is travel to a hidden cave underneath the island.

Inside this cave, you’ll find three mobs: a shield bearer and two warlocks. Your goal here is to ignore the shield bearer and kill the two warlocks (be careful with their fire spells!).

Once you kill them, leave the cave, wait a couple of seconds for their mist to respawn, and go back inside, repeating the process.

After a few times, you can go in and quickly loot the fallen enemies (always ignoring the shield bearer) and keep repeating this process for as long as you want (or for as long as your items have durability).

While slower than the Cradle of Keepers cave, this will give you all the bones and fabric you’ll need in the game. So, good farming! Thanks to 04AM for the tricks!
