Ice Spear is a cold spell that fires shards of ice. After traveling a short distance the shards enter a second form. The second form can pierce enemies and has increased projectile speed as well as increased critical strike chance. This unique feature of Ice Spear makes it ideal for damaging distant targets, but at the same time makes it substantially weaker when used at close range.

- 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 Sentinel 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.
