Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This spell has two steps:
    • First it deals damage, queuing and resolving all on-damage triggers;
    • Then, it freezes the targeted character.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Frostbolt is a very useful direct damage spell in the mage's arsenal. Less powerful than Fireball, and less far-reaching than Arcane Explosion, Frostbolt fills a niche for finishing single targets with 2 or 3 health. Its freeze effect provides extra utility, useful for stopping higher-health minions in their tracks, until they can be properly disposed of. This also works against heroes, making it excellent for delaying a charging warrior or back-stabbing rogue from unleashing their latest weapon upon you.

Frostbolt works particularly well as a nuke when combined with Ice Lance, allowing mages to deliver devastating amounts of burst damage in a single turn.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Frostbolt is a Frost mage spell from World of Warcraft that deals direct damage and chills the target, slowing their movement by 50%.
