You unleash a hail of 5 ricocheting icy bolts to slow and immobilize your foes.
% Weapon DPS as ice
% Chance to Freeze for 3 Seconds
% Chance to Immobilize for X Seconds
|50% for 3 seconds||75% for 4 seconds|
- Cooldown: 0.8 seconds
- Target's damage is reduced by 20% for 6 seconds.
- Chance to immobilize is increased to 75% for 4 seconds.
- Increases to 7 bolts over a wider arc.
- Icy blast is useful against crowds or in narrows spaces.
- It is less useful against single targets, especially since the path the hail takes is somewhat random.
- If you do use Icy Blast against single targets, it is best to be up close to hit the target with as much hail as possible.
