The Ice Spear skill uses MP to gather water particles in the air and turn them into a spear shaped block of ice. The ice spear is created above the targeted object to take advantage of its weight and acceleration by gravity. Ice spear has greater piercing power compared to ice bolt, and therefore can incur damage over enemies in the surrounding area.
Ice Spear can only be used with an Ice Wand equipped.
Ice Spear can be stacked up to 5 times, each stack increasing damage and splash up to a maximum of 6.5 charges worth of damage at 5 charges.
You cannot move while you have Ice Spear charges.
The spell can be fired with any number of charges, and when it is fired, all stacked charges are released.
Ice Spear freezes targets, which prevents them from moving, attacking, or from being attacked. After a certain time, Ice Spear will explode, dealing heavy damage and the target will be knocked back. Monsters that are killed by Ice spear will cause other monsters nearby to freeze as well, creating a chain reaction.
Monsters will not aggro immediately upon freezing (or freezing effect); they will only aggro after they are knocked back.
Monsters with Mana Reflector (or using defense with a shield) are resistant to the freezing effect.
When Ice Spear is cast on a target, all enemies in the path to the intended target, as well as the ones around the intended target will be frozen. The shooting range, width of the path and the radius increase with rank. (Radius increases significantly from Rank 2 to Rank 1.)
Obtaining Ice Spear involves a collection quest. You must gain 5 missing pages from each of the two collection books given.
Ice Spear book pages do not expire and can be collected in any order.
To enter Karu Glowing Dungeon, one must complete the collection book for various glowing monsters available via exploration quests.
Ice Spear charges the fastest compared to Thunder and Fireball, but inflicts the lowest damage.
It is possible to Chain Attack an Ice Spear, since it takes a short amount of time to Cast it.
Talk to Stewart about skills. He will give you a 2x2 sized quest log, and a 1x2 sized book in which to place your pages. Make sure you have enough room in your inventory. Neither the book nor the scroll can be put on pets or placed in the bank.
Collect pages 1-5 and place them into the book. Enchanting is not required, as Ice Spear is a collection quest.
Talk to Stewart after you have completed the book.
Stewart will hand you a new book. Collect 1-5 pages for this book as well.
