Frost Blades /6

A projectile based melee attack skill that converts 60% of physical damage to cold damage. The melee strike splits into multiple projectiles when hitting the targeted enemy, potentially dealing damage to multiple secondary targets.
NameShow Full Descriptions
Ancestral Call SupportAllows Frost Blades to target two additional nearby enemies. With at least three enemies nearby this can result in triple the amount of blade projectiles.
Cold Penetration SupportReduces enemy resistance to cold damage, making them take more cold damage from Frost Blades.
Elemental Damage with Attacks SupportMultiplies the elemental damage done by Frost Blades. Converting all physical damage from Frost Blades to elemental damage maximizes the benefit this support provides.
Melee Physical Damage SupportGrants more melee physical damage for Frost Blades. Because 60% of physical damage is converted to cold damage, this support will also increase the cold damage done by Frost Blades.
Multistrike SupportCauses Frost Blades to repeat an additional two times, as well as providing a large bonus to attack speed.
Ice Bite SupportAdds additional cold damage to Frost Blades, increasing freeze chance, and granting a chance to gain a Frenzy Charge on killing a frozen enemy. Frenzy Charges increase a player's attack speed, cast speed and damage.

    Frost Blades


    Frost Blades is a cold melee attack skill that strikes with increased range, then has the secondary effect of releasing projectiles behind the struck enemies.



    Skill functions and interactions

    • Dual Wielding: Since Frost Blades has no weapon restrictions, attacks will alternate between both hands while dual wielding.

    An attack with Frost Blades consists of two parts:

    • An initial melee hit with the keywords Cold, Attack, Melee
    • A projectile attack with the keywords Cold, Attack, Projectile

    When an enemy is hit by this skill, multiple projectiles fly out from behind the enemy and target nearby enemies. This skill increases the melee range by an appreciable degree. Unlike LightningStrikeLightning Strike, if the initial attack does not hit an enemy, then no projectiles are released.

    The projectiles have the same damage multiplier as the initial melee hit, with the same cold damage conversion. However the initial melee attack scales with melee damage modifiers (such as Melee Physical Damage), whereas the projectiles scale with projectile damage modifiers. Both components scale equally with (unspecified) attack, physical, and cold damage modifiers.

    multipleattacksMultistrike Support uses the increased attack range of this skill when selecting targets to attack.

    SplashMelee Splash Support does not release additional projectiles from secondary targets struck by the initial melee splash, nor does it splash the projectiles' damage. FasterProjectilesFaster Projectiles Support will increase the speed and effective range of the secondary projectiles. RangedPhysicalAttackDamageVicious Projectiles Support scales all the damage of the projectiles, but not the initial melee attack: attack speed is NOT reduced since the attack animation itself is melee, rather than projectile.

    Note: the tooltip DPS shows only the melee attack component damage and DPS. It does not show damage values for the projectile component. To calculate the projectile component, use the formula at the bottom of this page.

    Interactions:

    • Hydrosphere - Attacking a HydrosphereHydrosphere will make the projectiles from frost blades release. This allows characters to stay out of melee range of monsters, while still releasing projectiles.
