Crowns of ice are a rare type of headgear in ADOM. They have typical stats of [+1, +2], although variations from these numbers are common. They provide immunity to cold while worn.

Crowns of ice appear as blue crowns when unidentified.


Crowns of ice are of limited use as a handful of monsters can threaten the PC with cold-based attacks. Common resistance to cold is typically enough to ensure safety. Moreover, cold immunity can be easily acquired thanks to the ancient mummy wrapping — a guaranteed artifact which can be retrieved early in the game.
