Ice Burst requires a Magic level of 70 to cast and can do damage in a 3x3 square area up to 9 targets. This spell can freeze your targets, immobilising them for 10 seconds, and is capable of hitting up to 22 damage (without any magic damage boosts) per cast.

As with all Ancient Magicks spells, the Desert Treasure quest must be completed to cast this spell.

Ice Burst is the most common Ancient spell used in Castle Wars and the Fight Pits, due to its relative low cost compared with Ice Barrage, the lower level requirement, and the relatively large number of targets in small spaces, especially on crowded worlds.

Remember, you cannot use Lunar spells, Standard spells, or Arceuus spells if you are using Ancient Magicks.
