Frost Shield Build Guide

Frost Shield creates an icy dome on the ground at your location that protects the caster and their allies from enemies. When cast, it rapidly consumes your energy shield at a flat rate for one second and will grow in power and life based on how much energy shield is drained. The skill provides protection until it runs out of life.

Frost Shield Build

Frost Shield will protect you and your allies from a small portion of enemy damage if they’re within the shield or a large portion of their damage if the enemies are outside the shield. All enemies close to or within the shield will also be chilled.

Additionally, while you’re inside Frost Shield’s dome, it will provide added base critical strike chance. This makes it great for defensive positioning on bosses, letting you take cover within the sphere and unleash hell as long as the shield holds.

Support Gems

Just like Void Sphere, it works well with the Second Wind Support Second Wind Support. Using the Increased Area of Effect or Concentrated Effect Supports allows you to control whether you want more space to move within or a tighter area. A smaller shield provides you with better control over how many enemies enter the shield’s area for maximum damage mitigation.
