Elden Ring Chilling Mist Guide, Notes & Tips

  • This is an Ash of War Skill, associated with the Ash of War: Chilling Mist.
  • FP Cost: 14 on use.
  • This Skill is not Chargeable
  • Upon activation, the user raises their armament (weapon) and coats it with frost, before performing a sweep in front of them that releases a cold mist in a small area.
    • The frost coating counts as a weapon buff. 
    • This skill consumes FP before the sweep and mist are performed. If the user is interrupted but has consumed FP, only the weapon buff will be performed.
    • Consumes approximately 30 stamina.
  • The weapon is buffed with a 60 Frost buildup per hit effect, after consuming FP.
    • This buff lasts for 20 seconds after use.
    • This buff is not reflected in the weapon's stat screen.
    • This buff stacks with the innate status buildup the weapon has (if any), including frost.
  • The sweep attack deals aproximately 100% more damage than a light attack.
    • It also applies 120 frostbite on hit.
    • This sweep can be aimed in any direction before its release.
  • After the sweep, the weapon leaves a stationary mist that continues to apply 120 more frost buildup per tick.
    • The mist lingers for 5 seconds upon appearing.
    • Has a small area of effect that can affect multiple enemies if clustered together.
  • If used without FP:
    • No weapon buff is added.

    • No mist is released.

      Malenia dodges the lingering mist like any other projectile... then promptly steps right back into it to get popped by frostbite super easily

        My favorite AOW. I use this on my Zweihander weilding mage INT build. Even though I only have 19 poise, the sweep never gets interrupted because it acts as a two handed colossal swing. Deals insanely high damage when the uninterruptible sweep lands, adds instant frost bite 9/10 times even when i use the magic affinity not cold, plus serves as area control in pvp when I need space to chug a flask of cerulean tears or cast a longer timed spell.

          Great against Malenia. Infuse your weapon as STR/DEX/QUAL... whichever is the strongest and with this ash. The mist and frost weapon buff procs on Malenia in no time. Then switch to a bleed weapon to bleed her while she's frosted.

            Finally beat malenia and it was thanks to this. After trying every thinkable combo of weapons and ashes of wars on my pure str build I put this on my claymore and absolutely dumped on her with it lol

              Can be used to buff the Glintblade Phalanx Ash of War with frost damage.

              Cast Phalanx, switch weapons, then cast this before the glintblades fire.

                If you cast this on your right hand weapon, can a crossbow on your left hand get the frostbite effect (similar to how bloodflame or seppuku adds bleed to crossbows)?

                  Actually unironically a really good Ash of War now that 1.04 hit. It was always quite powerful, a real boss buster thanks to the Frostbite ailment but it lacked the cast speed to go off reliably, since 1.04 though it has that speed and it's now a very good Ash of War.

                    I can’t find it at the ruins :( idk what’s going on but I’ve tried everything. And no I didn’t find it and sell it already. I don’t sell ashes at all

                      It says it isn't chargeable but you can definitely charge it, needs to be fixed. I literally second-guessed myself and did a comparison in game and you can charge it

                        can confirm this frost buff does not replace any other ailment your weapon inflicts, it stacks. might be obvious but well
