  • Multiple Stages: This spell has two forms. The first form has no natural piercing. Once the projectile reaches a preset distance from the caster, it will instantly change to its second form. The second form has 300% more projectile speed, will pierce all targets, and has a 600% increased chance to critical strike. With a base critical strike chance of 7%, the second form will have 49% chance to critically strike, before other modifiers. Ice Spear will do full spell damage to monsters hit in either form.
  • Projectile Speed: x% increased Projectile Speed will not affect the distance at which the spell changes to its second form, but will increase Ice Spear's travel speed.
  • Piercing: The second form naturally pierces all targets, but additional targets pierce allows the first form to pierce targets as well.
  • Fork and Chain: In the second form Ice Spear doesn't fork or chain.
    NB: Frost Sentinels monsters will use a different version of the skill, with additional projectiles (from 0 to 2) and 50% increased damage in second form. Fork and chain still applies to the skill in second form, as well as pierce in the first one.
  • Can be used in left mouse button slot to cast and move.
