When you collect all old messages in an area, Kagero the Merchant rewards you with decorations for your room. Find all Frost Islands old messages, and you’ll get a Goss Harag carving and a Tetranadon carving.

In the center of location 7, wirebug up to the top of the stone and ice column. There’s a shrine at the top. You’ll find Frost Islands message 1.

Frost Island message 2

This message is situated close to location 1, but it’s easiest to reach from the main camp. From the camp, head west and look for a huge tree arcing west. Climb the trunk — this will probably take two wirebug charges. Once there, wait for your wirebug to recharge and climb again. Frost Islands message 2 is at the top of your second ascent.

Frost Island message 3

Frost Island message 4

Head to location 9 on the upper level of the map. To the northwest, you’ll see a couple of icy spires with a wooden bridge between them. Use the ledges to climb as high as you can — you’ll have to get pretty creative with your wirebug, so make sure you grab an extra on your way. You’ll find Frost Island message 9 near the top on a snowy ledge.

Frost Island message 10
