Ice Barrage requires a Magic level of 94 to cast and has a base damage of 864 water damage. Ice Barrage is a multi-target spell, so the damage is dealt up to 9 targets within a 3x3 square. This spell can freeze your targets, immobilizing them for 10 seconds, or 9.6 seconds for players.

As with all Ancient Magicks spells, the quest Desert Treasure must be completed in order to cast this spell.

This spell is widely used in team minigames such as Castle Wars, Soul Wars, Fist of Guthix and Stealing Creation. Many people use the spell to freeze players, slowing them down or stopping them from reaching their target (the flag or avatar etc.).

Ice Barrage is commonly used in Player killing, as it is the highest-hitting magical spell that can be used against players and it immobilises the target. Fire Surge can hit higher than Ice barrage, but only when used on Glacors, Ice Strykewyrms, or K'ril Tsutsaroth

Remember, you cannot use Lunar Spells or Standard spells if you are using Ancient Magicks.
