Frost Armor is a mage ability learned at level 54 for those with the frost specialization. It grants a self buff to multistrike and slows melee attackers.

Notes Edit

The slow effect means never having to fight aggressive mobs you'd rather run past, assuming they don't resist every time. On foot, a chasing creature will get in 2 or 3 hits (some things run faster and swing faster than others) before you outpace them; mounted characters will be hit a single time before getting away.
