Frozen Storm


From Diablo Wiki

Frozen Storm is a rune effect in Ice Armor, a defensive Utility Wizard skill.

This rune effect is basically a slow motion Frost Nova, creating a storm of ice around the Wizard that lasts for 3 second, chilling/slowing all enemies for the duration. The storm deals minimal damage and functions largely as a panic button defensive assist, slowing all nearby attackers for 3 seconds after it is cast.
