Screenshot of Arctic Armour

Arctic Armour is a defensive skill that protects the player against physical and fire damage while stationary, leaving a trail of ground ice and chilling enemies when they hit him.

Skill Functions and Interactions

Less Damage taken when Hit: As the damage reduction is only applied on hits (including reflect), damage over time effects like Burning are not affected.

Chilled ground: Ground ice chills anything standing on it. This does not stack with other chills.

Blood Magic: A Blood Magic support gem can be linked to Arctic Armour or the Blood Magic keystone can be allocated to make Arctic Armour reserve life instead of mana.
