Frostbolt is a mage spell card, inducted into the Legacy set, formerly from the Basic set.

Other versions[]

How to get[]

Two copies of regular and golden Frostbolt are automatically given after the player completes the Ranked's New player experience system, unlocking Wild and Classic format.

They are uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Previous availability[]

Prior Year of the Gryphon's rotation on March 30, 2021:

  • Two copies of Frostbolt were a reward for raising a mage to level 2.
  • Two Golden copies of Frostbolt were a reward for raising a mage to levels 40 and 42.

Notes[]

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

Strategy[]

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[]

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