Eiskalt the Ice Wyvern is a hero in Kingdom Rush: Vengeance, introduced with the Frozen Nightmare Mini-Campaign. Eiskalt costs $5.99 and starts at Level 5. On Steam, he is unlocked at stage 21.


As son of Jokull, Eiskalt was born to reign in the North. However, his frequent attacks on humans made him a big problem for Arkus and his own mother. Together, they trapped him under innumerable layers of ice, where he remain asleep until Vez'nan managed to free him.

Eiskalt, the most powerful son of Jokull, was born to rule in the North.

Life was a perpetual hunt and no one was better at this than him. His favorite prey were those feeble humans; It was so thrilling to play with them and end the chase in an instant with an icy breath or a twist of his powerful tail.

Arkuz and his own mother warned him several times against this, but he was having too much fun to listen to them and this, was his undoing. They trapped him under innumerable layers of ice, where he remained asleep until Vez'nan managed to set him free.

Now he will unleash his piercing cold rage against Vez'nan`s enemies and follow your command. With this hero on your hands, you will be unbeatable.

Tips and Tricks[]

Eiskalt is a very powerful hero, with both great damage and crowd control. His ability to constantly slow down enemies makes it far easier to manage enemy flow, in addition to his high aoe-damage. Unlike Beresad and Murglun, Eiskalt has no ability to insta-kill an enemy, but more than makes up for this with his superior CC.

While Eiskalt's ultimate ability does no damage, it is very powerful nonetheless, effectively stunning all enemies currently on the map, buying time to cull their numbers or for other abilities to come off cooldown

Being a flying hero, Eiskalt cannot block enemies, but will constantly slow them down in large number.
