Frostbolt (full art)

Frostbolt is a basic mage spell card.

How to get[edit]

Frostbolt x 2 are a reward for raising a mage to level 2.

Golden Frostbolt is a reward for raising a mage to levels 40 and 42.

Frostbolt is soulbound and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Strategy[edit]

Frostbolt is a very useful direct damage spell in the mage's arsenal. Less powerful than Fireball, and less far-reaching than Arcane Explosion, Frostbolt fills a niche for finishing single targets with 2 or 3 health. Its freeze effect provides extra utility, useful for stopping higher-health minions in their tracks, until they can be properly disposed of. This also works against heroes, making it excellent for delaying a charging warrior or back-stabbing rogue from unleashing their latest weapon upon you.

Lore[edit]

Frostbolt is a Frost mage spell from World of Warcraft that deals direct damage and chills the target, slowing their movement by 50%.
