[Effect]

Max HP +800
Gold Efficiency 86.80% (not including Elemental Power passive)
Unique Passive(s) Elemental Power: After using an ability, the next normal attack reduces movement speed by 30% and deals 150 physical damage (20 additional damage for each level gained) to an area, 3-second cooldown.
SG Notes
1: There is a five-second window to activate Elemental Power after using an ability, during which time the hero’s hands will glow blue.
2: The 3-second cooldown begins once an ability is used, so Elemental Power can be activated twice in a row so long as 3 seconds passes between use of the first ability and the second attack.
3: The second cast of abilities (eg Lu Bu‘s Red Stallion or Nakroth‘s Jury Fury) can activate Elemental Power.

Frost Cape is a premiere defensive item that also offers great offensive utility by empowering a normal attack to slow enemies. In terms of stats, Frost Cape provides cooldown reduction, armor and an HP boost. These give its wearer some tankiness, particularly against heroes who deal physical damage.

That said, you get Frost Cape for its Elemental Power passive, letting you stick to your intended target whenever you tag them with a normal attack after casting an ability.

Recommended Heroes and/or Situation:

Most tanks can use this item as a follow up to their initiating abilities. Examples include Thane, Arthur, Taara, and Ormarr. It is one of the few defensive items – and the only one that boosts both HP and armor – to also boost CDR. Some marksmen like Violet can use Frost Cape to empower their normal attacks, allowing them to either chase or escape enemies more easily.

Basically, any hero that uses both abilities and auto attacks frequently can make good use of Frost Cape.
