The Bandits drew closer and they were gaining confidence. The first few volleys of Fireballs had been more than enough to drive them away, killing several in the process. They retreated to the underbrush, where they regrouped and planned. Now they advanced again, shields up, safe in their great numbers. The Witch surveyed her opponents, wand resting lightly in hand, waiting for the right moment.

It came soon enough, for the Bandits raised their weapons aloft, and came on with a cry. Their blood lust overcame their caution, and the Witch made her move. She flicked her wand quickly, and at once a great wall of solid ice sprang up in the Bandit's path. They crashed into it full force, and before they could recover, three other towering walls rose around them, locking them in an icy prison. Smiling, the Witch conjured a roaring pillar of fire in the center of the freezing prison, and delighted in the shrieks of her trapped enemies roasting alive.

Description on the official Path of Exile website [1]

Version history

Version Changes
  • Frost Walls created by you or your allies are now no longer considered enemies for the purposes of projectile collision detection (your projectiles will not collide with your own Frost Wall). This intentionally fixes the exploit case where a player stacks many Frost Walls around a boss and uses a skill like Piercing Module Error: Item link: No results found for search parameter "lightning arrow". to trigger an excessive amount of hits.
  • Frost Wall's cooldown can no longer be bypassed by expending Power Charges.
  • Frost Wall's cooldown has been reduced from 5 seconds to 3 seconds.
  • Now has a cooldown that can be bypassed by consuming Power charges. Its damage, duration, and wall length have all been greatly modified.
  • Fixed a bug where Frost Wall could push around immobile objects.
  • Frost Wall can't be used through walls anymore.
  • Fixed a bug where Frost Wall could damage non-hostile bandit leaders.
  • Fixed a crash with Frost Wall.
  • Frost Wall added to the game.
