- It is worth noting that this spell is only triggered when physically attacked by another character. This includes minions and the enemy hero.
- Damaging spells and abilities, and damaging effects from card text or battlecries on cards such as Knife Juggler, will not trigger the secret.
Ice Barrier is a mage spell which creates a protective barrier around the mage, absorbing damage and preventing pushback from damaging attacks while it holds. It was a staple defensive spell for Frost mages before being made into a class-wide talent with Mists of Pandaria. Unlike Hearthstone's version, the spell is not triggered by an attack, but can be cast on cooldown, and is generally kept active as much of the time as possible when in combat.
- Patch 188.8.131.5234 (2014-12-04): Phrasing changed from "As soon as your hero is attacked, gain 8 Armor." to "When your hero is attacked, gain 8 Armor."
