      This is widely considered one of the best ashes of war in the entire game. And frankly, I agree.
      There was a nerf, and I never even noticed there was a nerf.

        you know what would be cooler than this? This, but instead of Ice, it would be rocks similar to the ones Godfrey and the Crucible Knights use. It would naturally grant Heavy affinity.

          I don’t have this but when I go to the location there’s no scarab. There’s even the messages saying that say “try here” but there’s no scarab doing it’s usual route. I’m almost certain that I’ve been here before, killed the scarab and got an ash of war but Hoarfrost stomp is nowhere in my inventory

            This Ash still is great even after nerf. If you can't utilize this site in your game play you must just suck and rely on overpowered mistakes. Love it on my great stars hammer.

              Animatiom will disappear with low fps aaaaand no damage. (Slow clapping) Someone say it terrain based. Nope. Just lower your video settings.

                The fact that this was nerfed to the floor and no one uses it anymore might make From buff it a little bit now xD

                  It's still a usable ash of war if you want to easily proc frost...when it works. It seems half the time I stop it uses the fp but doesn't do anything.

                    For those who are wondering, while it doesn't trivialize the game anymore, this is still a good weapon art. To those who say that the damage nerf was too much, it's an AoE attack. Most (and I said MOST, there are exceptions) AoE attacks have below-average damage in exchange for the ability to hit multiple targets at once. The nerf just brought it down to the same level as most other AoE attacks.

                    The reason people are calling it trash is because they are used to being overpowered, and the gap between themselves and most other weapon arts was so large that being average is comparable to trash in their eyes.

                      Too many of you come in from the perspective of speed running or min/maxing to render bosses trivial, which leads you to call so many skills & weapons "trash". This skill is still perfectly decent and usable by normal players who simply want to use cool abilities and have fun.

                        They will nerf all the strong weapon arts because a W.A. shall not substitute the main attacks. Just my estimation.

                          It might be needed but it’s still a really good move. You just can’t use it like an ice nuke now.

                          However it still does decent damage and has wide range, and it easilly applies freeze. RIP whatever, you guys just have to use it as it was intended now.

                            I feel like they nerfed the damage a bit too much. The higher casting time was definitely needed to stop spamming in PVP but now the thing hits as hard as a wet noodle.

                              Elden Rings 1.03 patch apparently nerfs this AOW.
                              The official Bandai-Namco announcement states:
                              "Decreased Ash of War, Hoarfrost Stomp's damage and increase cast time."

                                  Well, some people got their wish. This got nerfed in 1.03, damage somewhere around 40%, time to cast about double ...

                                    This reminds me of the night and flame blade, and when I learned you could actually pick up Comet Azur for a spell and saw what it could do I crit my pants! Where's the sorcery for this spell?! I've seen the boss in Sainted Hero's Grave use it... but where do we find it?!

                                      pretty op, less op than magic. lot of things need fixing in elden ring tbh this should be pretty far down the list compared to everything else, does kinda make the game ez mode tho. I use it to cheese half the enemies/bosses to get all the items for my low level pvp builds where I barley upgrade my weapons, at lvl 1 zero upgrades, I have 10 int, it still does 400-500 damage easy. I cant imagine actually using this casually if your trying to have fun in this game, definitely makes this game lame if your just L2 spamming everything, especially if your using it in pvp

                                          This should’ve stayed a unique Ash of War for the Icerind Axe. An Ash of War this powerful being put on so many weapons is ridiculous.

                                                Yeah of course you're not allowed to have anything strong but bosses having low-telegraph insta-kill grab attacks even at 40+ vigor that's reasonable. Except sorceries, right? They're not allowed to touch those absolutely busted sorceries.

                                                    pretty sure the FP cost is bugged or not meant to be 10 because using the carian filigreed crest makes this actually cost 12 FP instead of 10 when it should decrease it

                                                          This ash of war DOES NOT scale with int. After a LOT of testing I can conclude that ashes of war scale off weapon AR/level ONLY. Confirmed by speedrunner user:

                                                            In my testing I found that the damage scales with:
                                                            1) The weapon upgrade level. A +24 longsword does the same damage as a +24 greatsword. Only daggers seem to be doing less damage, but I have not tested every weapon class.
                                                            2) The infusion. Cold infusion does the most damage.
                                                            3) Intelligence. The damage scales pretty well with int, even when the weapon does not have int scaling.
                                                            4) Dexterity. The damage scales worse than with int, but still does good damage with high dex, low int.

                                                            The AR of the weapon or strenght does not seem to increase the damage, a huge collossal sword with heavy infusion and high strength will do way less damage than a rapier with cold infusion and high int.

I'm on PC and i've literally never had an issue with it going off. Sometimes it will go up high in the air if you do it against a wall or something, but I've never had it just disappear or not properly explode after the initial wave.

                                                                      • Cool to use, deals insane damage, low cost and no skill required. Have fun with that Ash of War but if you can only spam this button please dont summon me for a bossfight.

                                                                          • Anonymous

In this case with frost infusion it would deal physical and magical split. Am sitting on slightly higher quality stats than int and on standard infusion it deals higher damage for me.

                                                                            • Anonymous

Half the time it perma stunlocks most common enemies and even many mini bosses while doing crazy damage and frostbite, the other half of the time the followup wave after the stomp just doesn't appear, pretty sure this has to do with minor curves in the ground.

                                                                              • Anonymous

Some people suggested that it has to do with the terrain, and it seems to be the case because if you use it against a door, the wave will get sent to space.

                                                                                • Anonymous

Not because of it's supposed OP-ness (it really is not op imo), but because in some terrain, it just wont work 50% of the time. They should've really made this with odd topography in mind.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    • Can anyone confirm that this procs bleed as well?
                                                                                      I've been testing with different weapons and i only see frost procs from weapon art.
                                                                                      I am asking because i see a lot of "guides" that tell you it procs bleed but i so far from my own tests it does not

I encountered this during the great jar's challenge against 3 red phantoms. Every time i faced a phantom that used this skill they just spammed this 4 times and there was nothing i could do to avoid the damage or block it. Had to try it myself and it uses less mana than an average spell and hits like a truck on a huge aoe. Perfect combination for any int build that uses a melee weapon.
