Arctic Armour skill icon.png
You are immune to being Frozen. While stationary, you take less fire and physical damage.

Arctic Armour is a spell that reserves mana to grant the caster immunity to freeze, a reduction to physical and fire damage while stationary, the ability to chill enemies that hit them, and to cause them to leave behind a trail of chilled ground while moving.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Less Damage taken when Hit: This modifier is applied at the very end of the damage calculations (i.e. after armour and fire resistance damage calculation). As the damage reduction is only applied on hits (including reflect), damage over time effects like burning are not affected.
  • Chilled ground: Ground ice chills anything standing on it. This does not stack with other chills.
  • Mana Reservation: Arctic Armour is affected by all mana reservation efficiency modifiers.
  • Blood Magic: An Arrogance SupportArrogance SupportAura, Support
