Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite the in-game description, this effect does not increase the target's armor rating, but inflicts frost damage upon nearby adversaries.
  • This effect's magnitude directly corresponds to the increase in frost resistance (e.g., if the target has 15% frost resistance and uses a 20-point effect, the result is 35% frost resistance for the duration). Ten percent of the effect's magnitude corresponds to the damage dealt to nearby opponents.
