      As the story goes, the Lady Vox and the Lord Nagafen fell in love and wished to create a child of that love. It was
      forbidden that they mate, being dragons of opposing elements, and they were then imprisoned away from each other to keep
      a child from ever being brought to reality. The Lady Vox was imprisoned in the awe-inspiring caves of Permafrost, where
      she lived out the rest of her days, until her death, brought by one named the "Truthbringer", leaving her spirit behind
      to forever haunt her frozen kingdom. Her mate, Lord Nagafen was sent to Lavastorm and a good portion of the quests
      within these zones, brings to light their story

      Permafrost lies in the northern most region of Norrath, accessible through the Giants tunnel in Everfrost. While
      traveling through Everfrost, keep a watch out though, for the wandering Tundra Jack and his pet polar bear, Iceberg! On
      more than one occasion, they put the hurt on me as I ran through to Permafrost.

      Once you make your way through the multitude of Kromise giants in Everfrost, you will come upon the doors to Permafrost.
      I was personally amazed the first time I stepped inside this zone. The graphics of the icy cavernous tunnels are just so

      The Permafrost caves are made up of 4 levels, you enter in on the main level, full of Kromise giants and frigid glimmers.
      Head in northwards and a little to the west, there will be a drop to the basement level, where hard working little goblins
      toil away. North of the first room, you come to a large round pedestal. This is where the fabled “Vision of Vox” spawns. To
      access the other levels, you’ll need to travel up and down the spiral ramps, populated by animated glaciers and more giants.

      Minimum Level

      Permafrost is geared towards groups, so the mobs within this zone are heroic encounters.
      A minimum level of 40 would be reasonable, depending on the skill and size of your group. And as like most of the zones in Eq2,
      the further in you go, the more difficult the encounters.

      Permafrost is not intended to be a solo'ing zone, but my level 60 Monk had no troubles whatsoever taking on mobs in the upper
      tunnel that still con'ed green, so I imagine that a skilled higher level solo'er could breeze through Permafrost.

      Connecting Zones

      Quests of special mention;

      There are a series of quests involving the lore of the Lady Vox and Lord Nagafen. Though not started
      in Permafrost, I felt it would be wise to mention these, as they are large scale, important quests;

      • “To Speak as a Dragon” A hallmark language quest for dragons obtained in Maidens Gulch and needed for the following quests.
      • “Drayek’s Chamber” An access quest needed to be able to complete the following quests.
      • href=""
        target="_blank">"Fire and Ice” - This quest starts with Lord Nagefen in Solusek’s Eye. Once the quest reaches Permafrost, you will need to release Lady
        Vox’s essence to be able to hail her spirit, and continue the quest, leading to Drayek’s Chamber. Defeat Drayek and you
        will be able to move on to the final quest.
      • href=""
        target="_blank">"Deception” - This is the final quest in the Prismatics, also started with Lord Nagafen. You will be taking on the VERY
        formidable (and very full raid geared) dragon, Darathar. Once successfully completely this will land you the coveted choice
        of Prismatic items.

      I hope you enjoyed my little walk through of Permafrost. If you have any question, comments, or information you'd like to add,
      please feel free to drop me a note!
