Elden Ring Frost Build Guide

Ultimate Elden Ring Frost Build Guide: Best Frost Weapons, Spells, Ash of War, and More 

If you want to create a god-tier frost build in Elden Ring, then you should go over GuitarNerdist & Solverne’s list with almost all of the best options around it, covering the best frost weapons, spells, ashes of war, talismans, and other equipment. 

Best Frost Weapons in Elden Ring

Whether you like to use a greatsword, curved sword, colossal sword, or other types of weapons, you can find an ideal choice that offers what you need. 

1. Magma Blade is a curved sword that deals additional fire damage while benefits from the swift curved sword move set. It cranks out decent fire damage very quickly, especially with its Magma Shower weapon skill. It does require 16 faith, 15 dexterity, and 9 strength and only has about a 1% drop rate, but it is well worth it due to the damage it gives and its combo with many ice weapons. To get it, you need to defeat the Man-Serpent enemies wielding the orange Magma blade at the Volcano Manor. 

2. Blasphemous Blade: requires 22 strength, 21 faith, and 15 dexterity, but it not only packs a punch, but it can also heal you when using its weapon skill Taker's Flames or when you defeat an enemy while having it equipped. The fire damage from the weapon skill only scales with faith. If you want to snag this one, be sure to give the Remembrance of the Blasphemous to Enia at Roundtable Hold after defeating Rykard. 

3. Noble's Slender Sword: use it with the Hoarfrost Stomp ash of war, which is one of the easiest ways to inflict frostbite damage on enemies. Noble's Slender Sword is worth farming since it is one of the longest straight swords in the game and can provide a good bit of extra range over the axe and has C scaling with dexterity instead of D scaling. The drop rate for it is low at 0.5% though, so it may take some time but there are at least a couple of different farming spots you can use to make it a bit easier too. The first location you can use is from the group of Wandering Nobles near the Troll-pulled Carriage's caravan to the west of Waypoint Ruins. 

4. Zamor Curved Sword: it does require 16 strength and 18 dexterity, but it's Zamor Ice Storm weapon skill is well worth it due to the quick damage. It can also break your enemies' poise after landing a couple of hits with it too. The best part about it is if you use Fire's Deadly Sin with it, you'll be able to very quickly apply multiple procs of frostbite with ease. And even if you are able to get any critical hits in you're probably better off just spamming this attack when you're still on fire because of all the damage it pumps out. To get it, head over to the Giant-Conquering Hero's Grave and defeat the Ancient Hero of Zamor that's found at the end of the dungeon. 

5. Dragonscale Blade: this one requires 20 dexterity and 12 strength. Still, it has C dexterity scaling with an Ice Lightning Sword weapon skill that allows you to not only shoot down a bolt of ice lightning on enemy, but also leaves the blade coated with extra lightning damage and frostbite buildup for the next 20 seconds. This is also considered a katana you could consider dual-wielding it with other katanas too. To get this katana, all you have to do is defeat the Dragonskin Soldier in the Lake of Rot and then you should be good to go. 

6. Clayman's Harpoon: when you pair it with the Ice Spear ash of war, it can really dish out insane damage, the spinning motion it does at the beginning of the attack does ice damage too, so if you time it right or pair it with some cold sorceries, you'll be able to quickly get those frostbite procs off without much trouble at all. 

7. Death Poker: it only requires 15 strength, 17 dexterity, and 11 intelligence, to wield this greatsword and the main thing that makes it unique is the Ghostflame Ignition weapon skill that deals magic damage with frostbite buildup. It does not deal any fire damage and has a frost buildup of 65, but the really cool thing about it is that you can follow up with a light attack to spread the flame out in a line of the direction you choose or you can follow up with a heavy attack to do a bigger explosion of damage. To get it, you’ll need to defeat the Death Rite Bird that can be found at night time Southeast of the Southern Aeonia Swamp Bank Site of Grace.

8. Royal Greatsword: it will require 26 Strength, 18 dexterity, and 22 intelligence, aside from its heavy hitting attacks, the Wolf's Assualt weapon skill is what makes this weapon so great. There's just something about leaping up into the air plunging your sword into your opponent and causing an explosion of frostbite that is really satisfying. The amount of damage you can do with this thing when you land both hits from this skill is ridiculous. Pair it with Fire's Deadly Sin and you'll be doing even more damage too with the additional frostbite procs. To get it, you will need to defeat Blaidd as part of Ranni's questline once he spawns in front of Ranni's Rise tower. 

9.  Scavenger's Curved Sword: it only requires 14 dexterity and 9 strength and can be easily obtained by looting it off of a corpse near the Grafted Scion by the bridge northwest of the first Mt. Gelmir Campsite site of grace. Once you have the sword, just equip Hoarfrost Stomp ash of war on it with the Cold affinity and you should be good to go. This may bring its blood loss buildup down to 38, but it will now cause frost buildup of 105, so we really don't even have to focus on spamming the hoarfrost stomp ash of war with this build either. 

Best Frost Spells in Elden Ring (Sorceries & Incantations)

The best cold sorceries recommended for frost build are Adula's Moonblade, Ranni's Dark Moon, and Glintstone Iceberg, especially when coupled with the Snow Witch Hat. You can also use Terra Magica for a 35% magic buff and Flame Grant Me Strength for a 20% buff to physical and fire damage, as well as Golden Vow for another 15% damage buff. Bestial Vitality or other healing incantations are always a good option when using Fire's Deadly Sin to set yourself on fire in order to quickly reset frostbite procs. There are lots of other fire incantations that can be used instead, if you like to try out some ice incantations, Borealis's Mist deals much damage. 

Best Frost Ash of War in Elden Ring

- Flame of the Redmanes: If you would prefer using the ash of war to do fire damage, then Flame of the Redmanes is recommended, this is essentially the fire version of the hoarfrost stomp, but it also deals 40 stance damage, so it is actually capable of stunning many large enemies in 2 hits and with repeated uses, it can stun most bosses in the game too. To get it, just go to the front of the Fort Gael Site of Grace where it is dropped by an invisible Teardrop Scarab. 

- Hoarfrost Stomp: this ash of war is easy to get and you've got two ways to get it. You can either get the ash of war itself in Liurnia of the Lakes from the invisible Teardrop Scarab by the shallow body of water southeast of the Caria Manor, or you can get it from the Icerind Hatchet which is located within a chest inside of a ruined bell tower southeast of the Temple Quarter site of grace. 

- Ice Spear To get the ice spear ash of war, you'll need to defeat the Night's Cavalry patrolling near the broken Gate Town Bridge in the Lakes of Liurnia. The Clayman's Harpoon is a bit easier to get since it's just dropped by any of the Clayman at the Uhl Palace Ruins. 

Best Frost Talismans

What talismans to use for Elden Ring frost build? Shard of Alexander is a popular choice to boost the attack power of skills and the Fire Scorpion Charm can be used to increase fire damage by 12%, it does also increase physical damage taken by 10%. The Dragoncrest Greatshield can be a good combo for it to reduce physical damage taken by 20% to balance it out. Then Graven-Mass Talisman or the Flock's Canvas Talisman is good to increase spell damage by 8% if you plan on using sorceries or incantations. Radagon's Icon is also a good option if you're using any spells to shorten spellcasting.

If you are starters, at least use the Fire Scorpion Charm, Lord of Blood's Exultation, and the Rotten Winged Sword Insignia. You can always use Millicent's Prosthesis as well to raise your attack power with successive attacks.

More Tips for Frost Build Equipment & Stats 

For armor pieces, you can use the Snow Witch Hat to increase the damage of cold sorceries by 10%, the Spellblade set is also a good armor set if you don't mind the lower defense to increase the damage from cold ashes of war and skills by 2% per armor piece. In addition, having intelligence up to 68 if you want to use cold sorceries like Ranni's Dark Moon, and having faith up to at least 19 would be good to use Fire's Deadly Sin and other fire monk incantations, but you may want to consider increasing it to 25 if you want to use Golden Vow or up to level 42 if you want to be able to use all of the fire incantations. 

For the Flask of Wondrous Physick, use the Magic Shrouding Cracked Tear for boosting Magic attacks by 20% as well as the Cerulean Hidden Tear to get rid of any FP consumption for 15 seconds, but if you want to focus on fire damage more than swapping one of these out with, the Flame-Shrouding Cracked Tear may be a good option to increase fire attacks by 20%.
