You can find Icy Helve by defeating and looting another Drow, Dhourn, near the Selunite Outpost. When you reach the area shown on the map, use Basilisk Oil(found in the Cellar in Blighted village and other areas) on the petrified Drow. This will initiate a fight with a beholder. The Beholder will use other petrified Drow in the area to attack you, one of which is Dhourn. Kill him during the fight or after(he will attack you either way) and loot him to get the second part of the Staff.

Finally you can get Icy Metal from the Pale Corpse in the Myconid Colony!

Once you have killed them all, return to the Myconid and gain access to the area. Loot the Pale Corpse to get Icy Metal. Next to the Corpse you will find the Shadow of Menzoberranzan Head Armor Piece as well, which is excellent for stealthy Builds like an Assassin Rogue!
