Help unlocking the Witch

I have the quest to unlock the Witch and I have encountered it in the sub dungeon, but my question is: How do you get the frost roots it asks for? I can't seem to find any...

There are plants outside the subdungeon. Some of them drop frost roots when killed. You don't need to touch the plants inside the subdungeon, and you should not use EM's clearance boon when trying to unlock the witch (or EM for that matter, she hates killing plants).

Are you talking about the corrosive plants (I don't remember their name)?

Yep, you need to destroy those, best thing is to just wait until you've cleared the dungeon, so you don't really have to worry about the Corrosion stacking up.

One of my favorite lets plays of the game since release has someone getting 105 stacks of corrosion due to pissing off EM while trying to unlock the witch. It was a great run :)

I think I got even more corrosion, but clearance had removed some of the plants and I couldn't get enough frost roots. I was a bit pissed once I finally understood what had happened.

Or maybe I just overlooked a frost root lying around somewhere, I'm not really sure.

You would have liked the game I played when corrosion was first introduced. I thought that corrosion wore off with level up like the other debuffs, and so I was deliberately popping all of the corrosion pod plants before each ding. I was playing a Rogue and was one-shotting everything, so I didn't notice what was going on until I hovered over a meatman and saw that the damage prediction had him doing something like 100 damage. Incredibly, I actually managed to win that game by doing a hard change-up to pure caster.

I always forget about EM when I find the vegetarian vampire subdungeon. I carefully decide what my first combo is going to be, hit a plant, and then "krakow". Oh, right, Earthmother.
