Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite appearing to be an axe, the Avalanche cannot be used to cut down trees.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This weapon was previously known as the "Permafrost", but was renamed due to the introduction of the Archmage NPC, which will always be named "Permafrost".
