Mage Blizzard ability during The Hills Have Knives world event in Alpha-2.[1] VFX by John Kent.[2]

Blizzard is a very complicated spell. I have thought a lot about Blizzard. It rains projectiles down that deal damage, but also does a fairly frequent burst that applies Chilled stacks. It also has a little bit of mobility into it, which is something we talked about quite a bit. We felt that it was important to maintain some control over this ability, even though it's very powerful just to give players that maximal sense of agency as they are destroying the battlefield.[2]Keenan Reimer

Channel a massive blizzard around you, raining a barrage of hail shards upon your enemies while channeling. Periodically pulses Chilled to targets within the area. Each shard impact deals (50%🢆) ice damage in a small area around it and applies Frozen to targets with Chilled.[2][3][4]
