  • Adds a freezing variant of Ion Surge as a utility skill to Artificer!
  • Grounded version leaves a circle of ice pillars, aoe freeze and launches upwards
  • Aerial version just has the aoe freeze and launches forwards instead


Ever wish you could use flamethrower on Artificer but also fly? (or have any sort of horizontal mobility?) Well look no further! Frost Surge is an alternate utility for Artificer that launches you similarly to Ion Surge, but with a greater focus on horizontal movement. Summon a cluster of ice pillars on the ground below your feet, that propel you forwards and upwards while freezing and executing any enemies who come in contact with them. Use Frost Surge when overwhelmed by a swarm of enemies to get out of dodge quickly, and provide minor crowd control.
