      Why does nobody mention that it's added in a update.. I had to start all over and I wanted to get to where I was quick and seen this axe was good and I went where people said it was and it's not here on the game without any updates.

        Is it known where to find this in version 1.00? It’s not in the same location and I’m unsure if it even exists at all. I need it for a challenge run.

          yeah im sorry but as a weapon i just hate it. Upgraded to +5, yeah its fast and has a bit of stagger and good damage including the frost buildup but the HORRIBLE REACH oh my god the reach better on a fist weapon. I guess the WA is ok as well but really you have to spam twice it to get the proc and there are just better things to do

            Does the stomp damage increase with Dex? would be useful to know if a stomp build can just disregard all stats but vit end and mind

            • Anonymous

              I like this weapon, don’t even know why people are butthurt about it. The stomp is so telegraphed if you can’t dodge that in pvp you just suck, lol

              Who cares what I do in pve? People will do far more egregious cheeses than using a weapon/weapon art. (Like rot breath on Radahn)

                  Can you get away with using base stats to weild then just leveling up vigor and stamina or is it worth leveling up dex too? Does it scale into the weapon art?

                  • Anonymous

                    Apart from its special (which is just as easily obtainable not far away as an ash) the hatchet is simply a good 1H weapon that scales well with dex and has innate frost.
                    FFS it's my only B-tier dex weapon at +9. It's just such an easy choice for 1H dex builds as my Lordsworn Sword +17 that carried me until now is more than 100 phys weaker and it feels like handing a tootpick to bosses. Not enough choices for dex builds imo. Playing without a guide I came across tons of str weapons but dex got a bit less love it seems.

                    • TL;DR: Dex is the best stat for this weapon.
                      The weapon skill scales with 3 things: Weapon upgrade level, Weapon Ar, and all magic damage bonuses (In order of impact).
                      Because intelligence applies a flat buff to magic damage, it will slightly increase the damage of hoarfrost stomp. Raw AR increases have a much more significant impact on the skill's damage. This weapon has amazing dex scaling, so it is way more efficient to pump dex than invest in intelligence, unless you want to use spells.

                          lol, I’m just here laughing at both sides, the people on their high horse about using a certain weapon, and the people in a panic about whether or not this gets nerfed. It’s a video game, y’all. just enjoy it how you like!

                            Hands down my favorite weapon. Not only is it absolutely beautiful to look at but the not split AR is amazing for a 1 handed weapon that attacks so fast. I dont believe broken applies its just really strong in alot of scenarios.

                              so does the damage of the weapon art not scale with int on this one? so whats stronger, a weapon that scales with int using the ash of war, or this thing at 99 dex and strength?

                                    Holy **** this weapon is so good, I had so much trouble against Melania but after getting my hand on this weapon, I beat her in one try.
                                    Icerind Hachet +10 in my right hand and Lusat Glintstone Staff +10 in my left, Mimic Tear+10.
                                    Hoarfrost stomp through Phase 1, in Phase 2 use Wondrous Physick Flask(Magic-Shrouding Cracked Tear+Cerulan Hidden Tear) and burst her down with Comet Azur while she is in her Scarlet Rot Flower. Fun and easy.

                                        This axe is not OP by any means, it's just really good. For one, the ability is inconsistent and glitchy at least 25% of the time. Depending on who you're fighting, the ability will either carry you or do literally nothing. Like most weapons in the souls series, it can be really useful in some battles but absolutely garbage in others. MOST IMPORTANTLY, this weapon is actually fun to use and the frostbite is satisfying as hell. And although the ability is inconsistent, its wide, extensive cone shape is perfect for stopping enemies from running away or staggering them. This weapon has a lot of utility and I think you should try it if you're struggling with certain enemies.

                                          Hi there. There are a couple of questions.
                                          Does his "passive" attack deal damage from the weapon's upgrade? And, accordingly, do the stats also affect the damage from the passive attack of this weapon?
                                          I would appreciate a detailed answer.

                                            This weapon is for people who don't want to actually get good at the game. Too overpowered. Enjoy it before it gets nerfed, you filthy casuals.

                                              Hoarfrost Stomp is going to get nerfed. No way will these kind of numbers persist. It makes the game a joke.

                                                It's easy to get to, just take Fallen Ruins Of The Lake grace and walk slightly north-west and you'll see where you go in and open the chest, you can also kill the Teardrop Scarab and get Bloodflame blade spell on the way if you want to use it on another weapon.

                                                  This weapon WILL get gutted. Both its scaling and weapon art.
                                                  The weapon boasts good dps by itself, low stat requirement, frostbite (which is VERY good in elden ring) and the most broken weapon art in the game.
                                                  Hoarfrost stomp consumes very low fp and stamina, inflicts frostbite in one or two casts, three for the resistant targets, and deals INSANE aoe dmg. Right now, I dish out more than 1500 per cast. Would be 2000-2500 if I cared about buffing myself and getting more int (because it scales with int apparently)
                                                  Combine it with the mimic tear ashes and you can melt *any* boss in the game in few seconds effortlessly.
                                                  Forget bleed, scarlet rot, poison. Forget sorceries. Forget incantations. This axe outperforms it all. You need the weapon +9-10, and you can roll your face through the game. The mimic will also spam like crazy the weapon art. I melted the final boss under 15s with this easy mode weapon.

                                                    I was stuck for a long time on what sort of build to do, what weapon to use, ect. This weapon was the solution for me. For other people stuck on what to play, I'll talk about what really clicks with this one.

                                                    I found I liked large weapons for horseback combat, because short ones simply miss. However, large weapons get no hyper armor, like in old games, have massive weight, and their damage per hit does not compensate fairly for what you pay for them - off of the horse, they are useless.

                                                    I used a lot of weapons that scale with strength for guard counters with a greatsheild for on foot combat - this works amazingly - but large weapon's guard counters are too slow. Weapons like the morning star or mace fix this problem, but present three others...
                                                    You miss dog enemies constantly, You miss constantly on horseback, and you can't deal with groups.

                                                    This weapon is incredibly versatile. It solved all my build problems, and this how:

                                                    I went with prisoner as my staring class, went for 14 strength for the turtle shield, (I'll talk about why) and the 16 dex required for this axe. Then I went 18 int for the meteor staff and meteor attack spell.
                                                    I'd recommend vitality to 30, then endurance to 20, then level int to 40 after that.

                                                    Against groups, I use the ice weapon art of this axe to obliterate them, or many types of bosses. The turtle shield sits on the back and provides stamina regen, so it's helpful even here. Leveling int will help increase the power of your weapon art.

                                                    On horseback, I cast meteor with the meteor staff. This has perfect range, so you can focus on dodging, and it will even guard break after a while, so you can dismount and get a crit with your axe. amazing for overworld bosses.

                                                    Dog enemies are 1-hit killed by the weapon art of this axe.

                                                    This axe swings faster than most other axes, and its regular attacks build up frost, which scales with your int.

                                                    Vs. bosses like Misbegotten leonine, you can use the turtle sheild's weapon art to cause a breif stagger, then smack them with a guard counter with ypour axe. This puts your stamina and mana to a diferent use - allowing you to switch to defensive on the fly.

                                                    I love this weapon and I hope this PVE build idea helps some people out. I think im finally going to stop restarting and actually finish the game with this. I hope it is never nerfed, I'd be really sad. I don't want this game to be like ds3, where everything that's ever fun or good gets nerfed, so that the best weapon in the game is the basic, boring longsword.

                                                    I love this game and this weapon!

I have FP, enough stamina, and am distanced enough however the ice sometimes doesn't show. It could be a floor issue but calling this op is a tad bit of an exaggeration. I only chose to use this because ice is my favorite element.
