Vaal Glacial Hammer is a vaal melee attack that hits an enemy with a staff or mace, converting some of the player's physical damage to cold damage and temporarily creating a ring of ice around the targeted enemy.

Skill Functions and Interactions

The circle of ice functions similarly to Frost Wall. Players, monsters and most projectiles can't pass through it.
