Characteristics

The Ice Amulet uses the least amount of Mana of all spells, making it a very effective snare. The primary attack shoots five ice bolts, horizontally aligned, divided over an arc of 12°. This makes the attack difficult to aim at long ranges, but can be as deadly at the same time, hitting multiple enemies at once. It will freeze all but resistant targets for three seconds. Frozen enemies take double damage.

The Secondary attack unleashes a large blast of Area Of Effect at point blank range. Although it does no damage, it freezes all but resistant targets for nine seconds.

Upgrades

Strategy

The freezing effect can be used to stop the movement of enemies, leaving them vulnerable to finishing attacks. The effect combines well with traps as the Arrow Wall or the Swinging Mace. The Ice Amulet is very useful against strong enemies like the Gnoll Hunter and Ogre. The Ice damage does bonus damage to all Fire-type enemies.

Hellbats and Fire Babies will instantly die by the freezing effect on all difficulties. Making it possible to kill them with the secondary attack.
