How things have changed Top

Frostburn | Category: Ability | Tier: 3 | Cost: 2200

+55 crystal power
+250 max energy
+5 energy recharge

Passive: Damaging enemies with your abilities will also slow them by (15% + an additional 1% for each 10 Crystal) for 1.5 seconds, target can't be affected by Frostburn again for 1.0 seconds thereafter.

With the 1.1.7 update (Yay Ardon!) a few other changes were made as well, including a significant update to the Tier 3 item, Frostburn. Take a look at the image below see how the new slow percentage is calculated.

So, if you want Frostburn to be as effective as it was before, you need to build an additional 150 Crystal Power. This prevents Frostburn from being abused by weapon builds.

On the flip side, it also allows builds that invest heavily in Crystal to use Frostburn even more effectively than before.
