Since this fractured unique item is drop disabled since the end of the Synthesis league, every Circle of Fear (fractured mod variant) in the permanent leagues would have the legacy mod values in the explicit (if the item has two of the explicit mods that nerfed). The infobox on the right show the item as if drop-enabled or by using Divine OrbDivine OrbStack Size: 10Randomises the values of the random modifiers on an itemRight click this item then left click a magic, rare or unique item to apply it. on the item (which nerf the explicit).

The item cannot have the current version of the mana efficiency mod (Herald of Ice has (30-40)% increased Mana Reservation Efficiency), despite it function the same as the old variant ((40-30)% increased; legacy mod value see above).

The official trade site has not been fixed to make the search filter to work for both versions of the mods, so that there are two filters with the same wording (Herald of Ice has #% increased Mana Reservation Efficiency) but only one of them work for this unique.
