Story

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Zidane, Garnet, Vivi, and Steiner travel through the Ice Cavern to reach the top of the Mist Continent to find a way above the Mist. Along the way, Vivi uses his magic to melt the ice. However, after a point, a spell puts the party to sleep. Zidane wakes up and has to face Black Waltz No. 1, an enhanced black mage who cast the spell. After defeating him, Zidane wakes up the rest of the party, unaware that Zorn and Thorn are spying on them from an icy upper ledge. At the top of the cave, Zidane informs Garnet that she cannot go wandering around as a princess. Garnet gives herself a new identity, "Dagger," and Zidane teaches her how to act casually, much to Steiner's dismay.

Spoilers end here.

Treasure

The Ice Cavern on the World Map.


Monster formations

The interior of the Cavern.


Later in the game

After the mist disappears from the Mist Continent after defeating SoulCage at the Iifa Tree, the ice in the cavern begins to melt. If the party tries to enter, a villager from Dali will prevent them. Alternatively, if the player tries to get in from the cavern's base, a moogle will block the entrance.

Later, in Disc 4, similar to many other places on Gaia, a root from the Iifa Tree has sealed both entrances.
