    • Angle, initial width, and length are affected by Ability Range, and the angle cannot exceed 60° under any circumstances.
    • Status chance is not affected by mods.
    • Has a cast time of 1 second and a cast delay of ~1 second.
  • Ice Wave follows terrain. With multiple levels of terrain, the ice shards can change elevation to damage enemies.

Tips & Tricks
  • As a damage and crowd control ability, it can be dependent on the situation; it only affects those in front you rather than all around you. It works effectively against a large group of enemies rather than a single enemy like a boss.
  • Even though the wave moves along the floor, it is able to hit enemies that are slightly above or below it, such as Shield Ospreys.
  • Ice Wave is best used against enemies in a tightly-packed line. Loses effectiveness on Infested as Ancients resist much of the damage.
  • Since it passes through Snow Globe, Ice Wave can be used to clear the globe of enemies if Frost is somehow forced out of it.
