Frostbrand, or frost brand, weapons were designed to fight creatures with an affinity for fire.[2]


These weapons were particularly effective against creatures with a tie to the Elemental Plane of Fire. Magical flames could be extinguished half of the time by using a frostbrand. If ambient temperatures fell below freezing, the frostbrand was capable of emitting light just like a torch.[3][2]

Frostbrands also provided protection as a ring of fire resistance.[3][2]
