      Previous comment is not viable.
      There was no bug in mechanics.
      It just changed the description of the sword, while it stayed the same, except for +5% for an added slot.

        In version 1.31 there's a bug with the runewright. If he applies additional rune slot, the base 10% freeze chance might grow to 25%. Therfore, if the sword is fully improved with Zoria rune for +15% chance to freeze, chance to freeze equals 40%, while before it could reach no more than 20% (basic 10% + 10% of 2 greater Zoria runes).

          Didn't get the sword05 Jul 2016 15:37  

          After talking to Crach I received instead a very dissapointing sword which wasn't the Winter Blade. At that moment I was lvl 20, perhaps that's why?
