Glacial Hammer /6 ⍟
A physical/cold based melee single target attack. Glacial Hammer has a built in chance to freeze and will shatter frozen enemies if they are on low life.
NameShow Full Descriptions
Ancestral Call SupportAllows Glacial Hammer to target two additional nearby enemies. Pairing this support with the Melee Splash support will result in large areas of overlapping damage.
Ice Bite SupportAdds flat cold damage to Glacial Hammer, an increased chance to freeze, chance to generate frenzy charges on killing frozen enemies and adds cold damage per frenzy charge on you. This synergises well with Glacial Hammer's built in shatter against frozen enemies on low life.
Melee Physical Damage SupportGrants more melee physical damage for Glacial Hammer. Because 50% of physical damage is converted to cold damage, this support will also increase the cold damage done by Glacial Hammer.
Melee Splash SupportAllows your Glacial Hammer hits to deal splash damage to nearby targets. Pairing this support with the Ancestral Call support will result in large areas of overlapping damage.
Multistrike SupportCauses Glacial Hammer to repeat an additional two times, as well as providing a large bonus to attack speed.
Hypothermia SupportIncreases Glacial Hammer's damage and freeze chance against enemies that are chilled. Also increases the slow effect of chills applied by your Glacial Hammer.

Vaal Glacial Hammer

Vaal Glacial Hammer is a vaal melee attack that hits an enemy with a staff or mace, converting some of the player's physical damage to cold damage and temporarily creating a ring of ice around the targeted enemy.
