Notes[edit]

  • Freezes the target in a visible block of ice, preventing skill use and movement. The Freeze effect cannot be removed with a stun break. A 1 second pulse of chill is applied every second the target remains frozen.
  • The ice block appears even if the target was not frozen (due to Defiant, for example).
  • A player that's been successfully frozen will trigger traits that require a stun, such as Unsuspecting Foe and Stormsoul.
  • This skill is affected by the effects of Sigil of Paralyzation and each added 0.5 seconds of stun from Water Arrow (effect) is also affected by the sigil.
