Where to get the Hoarfrost Stomp Ash of War

By
Ben Chard

In Elden Ring, some Ashes of War are more powerful than others. This page details where to find Ash of War: Hoarfrost Stomp in the Liurnia of the Lakes region of Elden Ring.

Ashes of War are used to enhance weapons and other equipment with powerful special attacks.

Hoarfrost Stomp is one of the best Ash of Wars in the game.

What is Hoarfrost Stomp?

You may have seen mention recently of a very powerful Ash of War, Hoarfrost Stomp, and it’s for good reason. When used, it causes Frost buildup on the enemy, a very useful status effect. Frost increases damage taken by 20% and you can pair it up with other status effects to really pump out some serious damage.

It’s best used with a weapon that causes blood loss buildup, such as a Katana like the Uchigatana or the Reduvia (you’ll have to dual wield in this situation). The extra 20% damage increase will also proc on the Blood Loss status effect, inflicting massive amounts of damage to any boss that is affected by it. You can increase the level of carnage even further by obtaining the Mimic Tear Ashes via Nokron and have the Mimic Tear Ash use Hoarfrost Stomp alongside you, making most bosses a complete pushover.

Hoarfrost Stomp Location

This Ash of War can be found obtained by defeating an invisible Teardrop Scarab who can be found in a shallow body of water southeast of Caria Manor. Although it’s invisible you can see its glowing footprints, so attack when you get near them, and you’ll still damage it.

If you’re looking for a weapon with the skill already on it, look no further than the Icerind Hatchet, this can be found on the Temple Quarter isle in the center of Lake Liurnia. It is inside a chest situated beneath a leaning tower in the southeast of the Temple Quarter.
