Ice Barrage requires a Magic level of 94 to cast and can freeze your targets, immobilising them for 10 seconds, or 9.6 seconds for players. It has a 100% chance of freezing targets when cast as an auto-attack. If this spell is used with an ability, it only has a 10% chance of freezing, or a 20% chance if the caster has Dark Form active. It requires two blood runes and five water runes to cast. The base damage of this spell is 883.

When cast as an auto-attack, this spell will strike a 3x3 square area surrounding the target, hitting other players and monsters in this space. Damage to secondary targets is slightly less.[1]

Ice Barrage is widely used in team minigames as it can freeze multiple players at once, preventing them from tasks like scoring in Castle Wars or reaching an avatar in Soul Wars.

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

Temple Knight Archers

Solus Dellagar casts Ice Barrage on Temple Knights during the Wanted! quest.

  • Solus Dellagar is shown to have used a special version of Ice Barrage where it covered a 5x5 radius (while killing all of the knights in the process), though it seems to have punishing effects as he was completely drained of power after using it.
