Tower of Fantasy’s Frigg is a headstrong, steely Angel of Clemency who you may be familiar with if you pay any attention to the game’s main storyline. This fierce lady isn’t afraid to show her unparalleled combat prowess, and with her finally joining the ranks of playable Simulacra, you can take full advantage of her immense skill.
In this Tower of Fantasy Frigg build guide, we take a closer look at her powerful frost sword, Balmung, including its skills, advancement, best matrices, and more. We also go into the best team comps for Frigg, her upgrade materials, awakening rewards, banner, and pretty much everything else you’d want to know about this pink-haired warrior.

Tower of Fantasy Frigg
Frigg is one of the Angels of Clemency, and the right hand to the Sage, who she followed unconditionally. She has a unique perspective and philosophy on life and is known to be taciturn and straightforward, sometimes coming across as outright harsh and ruthless.
Frigg is an SSR Simulacra who wields a frost sword called Balmung.
Frigg is a limited SSR Simulacra, meaning she’s currently only available on the time-sensitive Rebirth Clemency Limited Cache. Her limited banner runs from September 1, and features an increased drop rate for her and her weapon, Balmung, during that time. You can either pull her through the banner using red nucleus, or purchase her from the limited store for 120 flame gold.
To find out more about drop rates, currencies, and more, check out our Tower of Fantasy banner guide.
Frigg is a brilliant ice DPS unit who benefits from a handy ice resonance buff when paired up with another ice weapon. Her kit revolves primarily around dodge attacks, making her a speedy, mobile unit that can dip in and out of combat, dealing devastating frost damage in the process.
Frigg’s shatter and charge rates are both A rank, meaning they’re pretty decent but don’t reach the heights of other weapons that have S rankings in these areas. Therefore, it’s a good idea to team her up with a weapon with high shatter value to break enemy shields, and one with a high charge rate, so you can use Frigg’s powerful discharge more frequently.
Here, we list all the main stats for Frigg’s weapon, Balmung. These are the weapon’s base stats before you level it up or equip it with any matrices.
The shatter ranking dictates how quickly Balmung can break enemy shields, whereas the charge rate shows how quickly the weapon gains charge.
- CS: 272
- Shatter: 8.00 (A)
- Charge: 8.00 (A)
- Attack: 18
- HP: 1165
- Crit: 14
- Type: ice shell – fully charged weapons freeze the target for two seconds and leave it frostbitten for six seconds. Breaking the ice shell causes additional damage equal to 151.00% of attack. While frostbitten, the target’s weapon charge rate is reduced by 50%
Here are each of Tower of Fantasy Frigg’s skills and attacks. Note that this is based on Balmung’s level one stats, which increase as you level up the weapon.
|Normal attack||Initiate five attacks in a row when on the ground.
First attack: deal damage equal to 62.1% of ATK +3 and knock the target back a short distance

Third attack: deal damage equal to 91.1% of ATK +5 and knock the target back a short distance

|Helix slash (jump, hold attack)||Tap and hold normal attack while airborne (or tap when a target is selected), or tap normal attack while climbing, jumping backward, or using the jetpack to trigger helix slash.

|Fimbulwinter||Slash the space around you, dealing total damage equal to 577.5% of ATK +30. Can suspend and launch targets, and grant damage immunity while in use. After unleashing this skill, form a large frost domain around you for 25 seconds. The number of dodges you can perform will not be deducted when you perform the Balmung dodge within the frost domain. Also grants ‘domain of frost I’ when you’re in the frost domain, increasing your shatter by 25% when using a frost weapon.||30 seconds|
|When a weapon charge is full or Phantasia is triggered, switch to this weapon to cleanse yourself of all debuffs and dash forward, temporarily controlling opponents in an area before unleashing a gigantic slash, dealing damage equal to 618.2% of ATK +33 and launching enemies into the air|
|Frost resonance||Increases frost attack by 15% and frost resistance by 25%. Activated by equipping two or more frost weapons. This effect also works with weapons in the off-hand slot. Effect doesn’t stack.|
You can advance Tower of Fantasy weapons by using their corresponding fusion cores, which you get by collecting more than one copy of a character. After you get your first copy of Frigg and her Balmung, you can purchase another copy through the limited store during her banner for 120 flame gold. Alternatively, you can get a duplicate of Frigg by pulling on the banner, but, of course, this is entirely up to RNG.
Advancing your weapons by spending fusion cores and gold unlocks special bonuses. Here are all of the bonuses you gain from unlocking each of Frigg’s advancement stars.
- One star: gain one frostiness point every time you deal 550% x frost ATK of damage in the frost domain. You can accumulate a maximum of ten frost points. When the Frost Domain ends, deal frostiness points x frost ATK x 95% of blast damage to all enemies in the frost domain. After leaving the frost domain, lose one frostiness point every three seconds.
- Two stars: increases the weapon’s base HP growth by 16%
- Three stars: increases frostiness limit to 15. When using frost weapon discharge skills in the frost domain, deal damage equal to 20% of frost attack x (current frostiness +5) to all the targets in the frost domain
- Four stars: increases the weapon’s base attack growth rate by 32%
- Five stars: shattering shields with frost weapons inside the frost domain freezes the target for two seconds and causes frostiness points x frost attack x 35% of additional damage (if the target can’t be frozen, double the additional damage dealt)
- Six stars: when frostiness reaches 15 points and you’re in the frost domain, you gain an additional domain of frost II, which increases frost attack by 12% when you’re using frost weapons
All SSR Simulacra have their own dedicated matrix set, perfectly tailored to their kit – and Frigg is no different. Her set buffs her frost attack and enhances the damage of her frost domain, and is available on the limited matrix banner running alongside her. However, this set is best suited to a multi-frost weapon team comp, so without another ice shell weapon to switch to, its two-set bonus isn’t beneficial to you. If you want to equip weapons of different element types, we recommend going with Samir’s SSR set instead, which has a two-piece bonus that compliments Frigg’s high hit rate.
For an SR option, we recommend Sobek’s set, as Frigg spends a lot of time in the fray of battle, surrounded by enemies. Or, if you want an R-rank set to tide you over, you can use Functional Dash, which increases Frigg’s frost damage.
Find out more in our Tower of Fantasy matrices guide.
|ToF matrix set||Rarity||Effect|
|Frigg||SSR||Two equipped: when switching from a frost weapon to another frost weapon, your frost attack increases by 15%/18%/21%/25% for ten seconds. Only the highest level’s effect is applied when obtained repeatedly.
Four equipped: when using frozen domain, enemies within take 60%/75%/90%/105% of frost attack every second
|Samir||SSR||Two equipped: increases your damage progressively by 1% upon hitting a target. Stack up to 10/13/16/20 times. Lasts 1.5 seconds
Four equipped: increase Dual EM Stars’ electrical explosion damage by 16%/22%/30%/40% of attack
|Sobek||SR||Three equipped: increases damage dealt by 6%/7.5%/9% for each enemy nearby. Up to three stacks|
|Functional dash||R||Three equipped: increases damage dealt by frost weapons by 6%|
When upgrading Frigg, you need icecore, nano coating, and booster frames. You can get boxes containing nano coating and booster frames as rewards from Dimensional Trials, Interstellar Exploration, Omnium Beacons, and the weapon store. You can find icecore while out exploring, or by using elemental shard boxes. For more help locating materials, check out our Tower of Fantasy map guide.
When picking a team for Frigg, you should aim to pair her up with another frost weapon. Tower of Fantasy’s Meryl is a great option, as she offers brilliant shield breaking, defense, and CC-resist. In the third slot, you can go with Tower of Fantasy’s Tsubasa for a more attack-focused line up, allowing you to switch between melee and ranged attacks, and offering good charge to help you unleash Frigg’s discharge skill more often.
Alternatively, you can pair Frigg and Meryl with Tower of Fantasy’s Nemesis or Cocoritter for some great healing and self-sustain. Cocoritter also offers some crowd control options and further compliments Frigg’s set, whereas Nemesis can dish out some powerful volt attacks.
We’re not sure of Frigg’s favourite gifts yet, but we do know she likes anything with the metal item and everyday item tags. We’ll update this section as soon as we’ve had the chance to crunch some numbers.
Giving Frigg gifts earns you awakening points. When you hit certain awakening progress milestones, you also unlock recollection rewards. Here are all of Tower of Fantasy Frigg’s awakening rewards.
Keep in mind that you can use a Simulacra’s unlocked trait without taking on their appearance by toggling the ‘use Simulacra trait’ switch underneath them on the Simulacra selection page.
