Usage Strategies

  • Hits enemies in pulses and also boosts any cold damage (weapon or spell) that the Paladin or party members may be inflicting. Useful with a weapon socketed with a jewel of frost.
  • Holy Freeze does not cause any damage, but the freezing effect cannot be resisted. Enemy total speed is decreased for 6 seconds, and the buff will constantly reapply its effects every few seconds.
  • Cold damage mitigation from Resist Cold can reach up to 60% at max level. This in turn can stack with other sources of damage mitigation and can eventually reach 100% (cold immunity).
  • Frost Field mod and Combat Art Range +X% can be combined to expand the radius to hit as many enemies as possible.
