An emaciated warrior-mage, bound to guard long-coveted treasures. It calls forth deadly frost from its surrounds, freezing foes that are next to walls.

Useful info

Ironbound frosthearts are threatening ice mages guarding the Vaults. Like the player spell Frozen Ramparts, Frosthearts can freeze the walls adjacent to the player to harm them. They inflict the Frozen status, slowing down player movement.


Spell set I
Slot1 Creeping Frost (3d19) Wizard flag

Tips & Tricks

These enemies are dangerous when faced in conjunction with other Vaults denizens, who will swarm you or pelt you with missiles if you leave a corridor or chokepoint to avoid Creeping Frost. Disable them with hexes or break LOS with them to buy some time to deal with other enemies first.


  • Prior to 0.30, Creeping Frost ignored cold resistance entirely.
  • Ironbound frosthearts were added in 0.27.
