As a result, many of us have at least a couple stacks rotting in our banks or backpacks, and I know I personally have started outright passing on them, having nothing better to do with them. Now I sort of wish I hadn't, if only because they're finally useful as currency in Patch 3.3.3.
On the PTR, a gnome called Frozo the Renowned will trade other tradeskill items to you in exchange for the orb. The list of his wares is as follows:
- Various Eternals will cost you 1 Frozen Orb each.
- Runed Orbs cost 4 Frozen Orbs each.
- Crusader Orbs cost 6 Frozen Orbs each.
- Frozo is also currently selling Frost Lotus for 3 gold 20 silver apiece, although I'd wager that's a bug that will be fixed soon to show a Frozen Orb cost of some sort.
