Glacial Spike is a somewhat nifty ranged Area of Effect skill that shoots a long spike of ice to a target and then explodes for a large area of effect, causing decent Cold damage and completely freezing (stopping) enemies in the area. This can be a good spamming-skill, like Ice Blast.


More powerful than an Ice Blast, this is the offensive spell of choice for a higher-level Sorceress seeking a quick deathblow. The Sorceress who wields this spell will often find herself treading over the shattered and frozen remains of her opponents.[1]
