    What would warrant this spell existance in our ability slot? Afaik this is only SELF buff, and with the way that mages are (squishy) - there is not much chance for decent dmg with  2-3 hits that mage can take and "reflect" before he dies. Unless this ability do massive ammount of dmg (which i really doubt) or there are plans for some nice spell combo that allows wiz to "tank" some content - the spell sound rather meh. It would however be nice if this would act like aura constantly dmging mobs in proximity - which would put - usually staying in the back line mage - in more danger (open at close range area attacks) , but depleting enemies hp at regular intervals.

    You're right. It kinda doesnt make sense from anything i've seen other than if you wanted to go back to a newbie zone and aoe burn em down.

    Fast attacking and/or high damage but very low HP "environmental" mobs, like the small spiders that pop out in Halnir that do rapid high damage but have very few HP.

    I'd imagine low life environmental mobs to come out at us in packs - which would make aoe spells better option. And if not Frozen Fortress + Shatter the Ice combo would be better as more universal solution for any mob attacking the wizard.

    Perhaps the spell actually radiates heat that is protective of the group in a very cold enviroment; especially in the lower levels of the game before people have built up resistance. Just a thought
