Arctic Armour skill screenshot.jpg

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. The trail of ground ice lasts 2.5 seconds at level 1 and increases for every level after. Arctic Armour has a default mana reservation of 25%.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Less Damage taken when Hit: This modifier is applied at the very end of the damage calculations. 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.
  • Mana Reservation: Arctic Armour is affected by all mana reservation modifiers.
