5 items: Summon a blizzard around you while blocking, inflicting 1365 Frost Damage every 1 second to enemies within 6 meters. Your blizzard has a 15% chance of inflicting Chilled on enemies damaged.
Set Rating: 4 out of 5.
When to use: Good for add pulls and for maintaining easy Minor Brittle.
Where to obtain: Depths of Malatar.
Set Weight: Heavy Armor.
Which pieces to obtain: Any.
Comments: This set is an Area of Effect debuff set. When you hold block a blizzard surrounds your character.
You MUST be wielding an Ice Staff bar to make this set worth using. This will very reliably cause the Chilled effect on all enemies stood inside the AoE it creates. When the enemy becomes chilled, so long as you are wielding an Ice Staff also, you will cause AoE Minor Brittle which increases the amount of Crit Damage they take by 10% but it also applies Minor Maim reducing the enemy damage done by 5%.
If you are looking for ways to debuff enemies to kill them faster, this is a great set to use, its best used in add pulls but is also good if you are trying to maintain Minor Brittle but struggling, this will give you very easy access to basically a 100% uptime.
