Rimeheart properties[edit]

This item has a legendary affix that's very powerful with the chance to deal instant death to non-Elite enemies, but only in certain situations. It's of little use for a player on a moderate difficulty level, since the trash mobs there will die so quickly anyway. This weapon really becomes valuable only on higher difficulty levels or deeper Greater Rifts where it saves a great deal of time by instantly killing enemies that would take seconds of grinding otherwise.

The Quinblades are the only surviving weapons forged by master swordsmith
Morad Peerse, each a unique expression of his craft. Made during Peerse's Low
Period, which followed the loss of his family, Rimeheart, with the blistering
chill it radiates and its cold-forged iron blade, reflects both the hardening
of its creator in the wake of tragedy and his consummate skill.

Before 2.1, The legendary affix said "10% chance to shatter and instantly kill lesser enemies that are Frozen." This had negative implications for Greater Rift consistency, so it was changed to do 10,000% damage instead.
