Frost Rune is an apprentice level Destruction spell that creates a rune which will explode when enemies come near, causing frost damage to health and stamina. You can't cast it just anywhere. When you press the cast button, the crosshair will let you know if you are pointing at a valid surface within range. If it is red, then you can't cast the spell there.




  • You can set off frost runes (your own or others) using any other Destruction spell from a distance.
