This spell conjures forth a mighty blast of ice; targets within its cone-shaped area of effect take progressively more ice damage the closer they are to the caster. Targets hit by the blast are encased in ice, slowing their movement for a few turns; targets killed by the blast may be frozen into solid blocks of ice.

The ice equivalent of Fire Storm, Glaciate creates a huge 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%). Monsters will be encased in ice, causing them to walk, fly, or swim 40% slower. Additionally, monsters killed by this spell may be converted to blocks of ice.


Glaciate was introduced in 0.14, replacing Ice Storm.
