What is Spellbreak?
Spellbreak is a new battle royale-style game that sets itself apart from the rest by using magic as its main draw. Each spell interacts uniquely with another, which makes fights a constantly stressful encounter that requires quick reflexes and thinking.
The game was released for all major platforms: PC through the Epic Games Store, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. As backward compatibility is a feature for both the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5, you can expect to continue playing Spellbreak through there.
What is Frostborn in Spellbreak?
Frostborn is a class of battlemage in Spellbreak, one of the 6 playable classes currently in the game.
It is a tactical, high-damage and long-range class with decent mobility, specializing in harassing enemies from afar and picking off targets. They work best in mid to long-range combat, and have mobility options to move and reposition quickly if they need to.
It is a high skill ceiling, but is also extremely rewarding to use when you get decent at it. If you have experience playing snipers in other shooter games, the Frostborn class may be right up your ceiling. A great Frostborn player will be able to turn the tables in any fight with a few clean shots.

Spellbreak Frostborn Skills and Sorceries
Let’s talk about the kit you get when you play Frostborn.
Your main weapon is the Frost Gauntlet. Its spell is Ice Lance, and its sorcery is Flash Freeze.
Ice Lance is your main attack. It unleashes a deadly ice arrow that flies straight to your target. It is the only spell that can be charged up before firing. Charging decreases your Run Speed but increases the mana cost, velocity, and damage.
Ice Lance is a projectile, and is affected by gravity just like other projectile spells.
Let out a blast of cold wind that chills the area around you. It slows opponents down by up to 50% for 1.5 seconds, before they are frozen. The edge of the area (6m) also blocks Fire, Wind, and Lightning projectiles.
Spellbreak Frostborn Skills
Like all classes, the Frostborn class levels up to 4, and each level comes with different skills that enhance the Frost Gauntlet’s powers.
At level 1, your Ice Lance leaves a trail of Ice Puddles. The puddles interact with many different elements. Frostborn can also skate through the Ice Trail, increasing their speed by +150%.
At level 2, you unlock Icicle. This skill lets you hover in midair for up to five seconds while aiming your Ice Lance, and also outlines visible targets in red for better target acquisition.
At level 3, you become immune to damage when casting Flash Freeze for 0.65 seconds. You also cleanse yourself of Ignite, Corrosion, and Slows.
Spellbreak Frostborn Combos and Element Interactions
Compared to other classes, Frostborns do not rely on their combos as much as they do on hitting their shots. However, there are still a few practical combos that you can do to maximize your playstyle.
Ice + Stone
Shockwave destroys the ice trail left by Alacrity, turning it into mist that freezes enemies on touch.
Shooting an ice trail after a Boulderfall turns the boulder into a glacier, dealing AoE frost damage.
Ice + Wind
Wind Shear destroys ice puddles, turning them into a mist that freezes enemies on touch.
Ice + Toxic
Shooting an Ice Lance through a Toxic Cloud freezes it, turning it into instant cover. Fireballs will still turn it into Dragonfire, however.
Ice puddles turn into Toxic puddles when hit by a toxic gauntlet’s spell.
Ice + Lightning
Shooting Lightning into an Ice trail or water puddle electrifies it, dealing damage over time to people in the area.
Ice + Fire
Ice and Fire counter each other completely.
Keep these combos in mind and you’ll learn how to use your Frost Gauntlet in smart, novel ways!
