Description[edit | edit source]
This arcana passively builds charges up to a maximum of 2. When cast, this arcana uses 1 charge to throw out a spinning sword of ice that deals 15 damage and stops a set distance from the player before slowly accelerating back to them. If the sword hits an enemy it stops on them and entraps them as it spins, pulling them close to the player while dealing rapid ticks of 2 damage.
If enhanced, the size of the sword is increased and it will deal 20 damage when it flies out.
Charged Signature: Throw out 6 ice swords in a wide arc which linger for a longer duration and deal increased damage.
Strategies[edit | edit source]
Frost Scimitar is one of the best crown control arcana in the game due to it's ability to pull in enemies from great range and keep them immobilised for a long duration as they move towards you, providing many opportunities to attack them with other arcana. It's two charges further add to this as you can stack both swords on a single target to increase damage or throw them in different directions to increase their coverage area and deal with several groups at once.
The large size, quick cast time and long active duration of each sword allow Frost Scimitar to act as a very effective projectile defence. It can lock down a large area from projectiles or function as a quick response defence in tight situations and its multiple charges allow you to use it offensively as normal while keeping a charge in reserve as a defensive option.
This arcana, as one of the "boomerang" arcana, is excellent for its ability gather and manipulate the positioning of foes and set up other arcana due to its long active duration. The scimitars will return slowly at first, dragging foes with them and pick up speed as they continue to return.
The trajectory of the returning scimitars can be manipulated by moving after casting, allowing the player to hit enemies that they missed. Use this alongside this arcana's dragging properties to drag foes into pits.
The spread on the Charged Signature gives it insane crowd control as it allows you to drag and immobilise an entire room of enemies. Alternatively, if you want to deal with a single large enemy, you can maximize damage its damage by casting it as close to the target as possible, causing them to take high damage from several overlapping swords.
Spell combos[edit | edit source]
- In general Frost Scimitar is one of the most versatile arcana in the game benefitting almost any playstyle and build greatly.
- The swords can be used to pull enemies into close range arcana such as Terra Ring, Heroic Blaze, Fadeaway Rhythm, Spiraling Typhoon and many others.
- While enemies are being pulled towards you, you have a safe window to charge up ranged arcana (e.g. Ball Lightning, Aqua Breaker, Violent Thornstorm , Raging Inferno, Furious Tempest)
- Arcana that cover a large area in front of you (e.g. Tidal Blast, Flame Breath, Tracer Barrage, Breaking Twister) and arcana that move you forwards (e.g. Shearing Chain, Crystalline Balestra, Inferno Cannon, Glacial Cross, Thunder Drop, Airborne Slam) are useful for dealing damage to enemies as they are being dragged towards you.
- Frost Scimitar is useful for to drawing in or keeping enemies within the effect of wards. Ward of Frost, Ward of Chaos and enhanced Ward of Flames pair particular well since they will boost Frost Scimitar's damage.
Item combos[edit | edit source]
- Gloves of Gambit will increase the damage.
- Ring of Reserves adds an additional charge, taking the total up to 3.
- Bladed Buckler gives Signature charge when you destroy a projectile.
- Reinforced Bracers allows this arcana to destroy all enemy projectiles.
- Relics that have a chance to inflict a status effect (e.g. Tesla Coil, Permafrost Cube, Phoenix Talon) pair well due to the high hitcount of each sword.
- Wings of Icarus heal you when you drag an enemy into a pit.
Additional notes[edit | edit source]
- As the sword speed up towards you they may reach a speed where they will outrun their own knockback, leaving the enemy behind.
