Along with new characters and a new region, the Dragonspine update of Genshin Impact also introduces a new mechanic known as Sheer Cold. By this mechanic, all the players who are away from a heat source for a long time will start to freeze up and this can have several negative effects.

This quest of investigating the strange ice is linked with the cure for Sheer Cold as a primary focus. All you need to do is keep following the quest marker until you reach an icy crystal which is surrounded by ice spikes. Since attacking this crystal doesn't do anything, the players will have to find and destroy Scarlet Quartz. These are red items that are coming out of the ground and breaking these then picking up the stuff they drop will cause red energy to surround the character. After all this is done, attacking the crystals will now damage them.
