The ice equivalent of Fire Storm, Ice Storm creates a huge (3-4 squares in radius including the center) blast of ice and freezing vapour. Like Fire Storm, it inflicts incredible damage, up to 7d32 damage at max spellpower, and it even pierces cold resistance better than Fire Storm pierces fire resistance (60% irresistible vs. 45%). However, Ice Storm does not create any vortexes and uses beam-targeting instead of smite targeting. This means that it is generally considered inferior to Fire Storm, though still very powerful.

History
