Ice Storm is an adept level Destruction spell that fires a slow-moving area-effect projectile that deals frost damage to the health and stamina of any enemies that it passes over, and slows targets' movement for 5 seconds.




  • Ice storm will not dissipate after it hits an enemy. It can be used to hit multiple targets in a line.
  • It is great for killing slaughterfish, as the spell will travel underwater. It can also kill large amounts of bees and torchbugs easily.
  • Dual casting will increase both damage and size of projectile while decreasing its range.
  • The Ice Storm whirlwind can travel through objects and even walls, and can so be used to damage or kill enemies in different rooms.
