Ice spells have a tendency to be complicated this is another one. So this is a cone spell. I mean, it's pretty simple in that regard: like you hit enemies in front of you, you apply what is a one of our elemental status effects called chilled does as you would probably expect it slows the Target and it can stack for an increasing amount of slow per stack you put on them. But, you might notice that there are some little crystals that it leaves on the ground there; and each one of those is a proximity ice mine that if someone steps on it will explode and apply additional stacks and damage. So, it's really good at creating area denial between your opponent and yourself; and if you force them through it then you can count on being able to escalate your status effects a little quicker.[1]Tradd Thompson
