- The ice spikes on the Sibear's head will temporarily grow when performing a charge attack or a jump attack from a significant height.
- Adding a combined element (that leaves the innate cold damage) may remove the shimmering cold effect on the coils, despite there being Cold damage on the weapon. This bug is inconsistent and may not appear for some people. Video Proof
