Old School RuneScape (OSRS) – How to Get Ice Gloves

How to Obtain Ice Gloves in Old School RuneScape

In the world of Old School RuneScape, there are certain niche items that are essential for completing various activities. One such item is the Ice Gloves, which allow players to hold hot objects. So, how can you acquire a pair of Ice Gloves and what benefits do they provide? In this guide, we’ll discuss how to obtain Ice Gloves in Old School RuneScape and explore their uses.

Obtaining Ice Gloves

To obtain Ice Gloves in OSRS, you need to venture below White Wolf Mountain and reach the Ice Queen. Here’s a step-by-step rundown of the process:

  1. Start at the north face of White Wolf Mountain and find a set of rocks that can be mined away.
  2. Once you encounter the group of Ice Warriors (Level-57), take the south ladder.
  3. Navigate through the dungeon, avoiding dead ends and misleading ladder spots.
  4. After descending the initial ladder, follow these steps:
    1. Travel through the southwest tunnel and climb the ladder at the end.
    2. Descend the east ladder.
    3. Head north and climb the ladder at the end.
    4. Climb the ladder next to the one you just ascended.
    5. Continue through the tunnel until you reach the Ice Queen’s room.

Defeating the Ice Queen

Once you’ve successfully reached the Ice Queen, defeating her is relatively straightforward. Make sure to activate the “Protect from Melee” prayer to avoid taking damage from her and the accompanying Ice Warriors. Alternatively, you can use the scattered rocks in the chamber to safe-spot her, particularly if you’re employing magic or ranged attacks. Fire spells are most effective against the Ice Queen due to her weakness to magic. Bring runes for your best fire spell and keep your prayer active. When you defeat her, a pair of Ice Gloves will drop, which you can pick up. You may choose to teleport away immediately or stay to kill her multiple times and collect extra pairs.

Uses and Benefits of Ice Gloves

Ice Gloves serve a variety of purposes in Old School RuneScape, particularly in activities where you need to handle extremely hot objects. Here are some examples:

  • “Heroes’ Quest”: Ice Gloves are initially introduced in this quest, where they’re necessary for obtaining a phoenix feather to bring back to the Heroes’ Guild.
