Name: Ice Storm
School: Evocation (Cold) (Untyped) (Bludgeoning)
Level: Drd 4, Sor/Wiz 4
Spell Point Cost: 25
Components: VerbalVerbal: A verbal component is a spoken incantation. You cannot cast spells that require this component if you cannot act or speak. This has no gameplay applications in DDO, as all characters can always speak and there are no effects which prevent you from doing so., SomaticSomatic: A somatic component is a measured and precise movement of the hand. You cannot cast spells that require this component if you cannot move causing arcane spell failure resulting in a ruined spell. Spells without a somatic component may be used with disregard to Arcane Spell Failure chance. Note - that characters make the same arm gestures for most spells in DDO, so you can't tell which spells require this component by watching your character's animations., MaterialMaterial: A material component is one or more physical substances or objects that are annihilated by the spell energies in the casting process. You must have the required items in your inventory. If you run out of the components, the game will not allow you to cast the spell and will instead inform you of what component is missing.
Metamagic: Empower, Enlarge, Eschew, Maximize, Quicken
Range: Standard AOE
Target: Foe, Positional

Saving Throw: None

Great magical hailstones pound down creating a persistent area of effect, slowing enemies movement speed by -50% and deals 1d6 cold damage + 1 per level, (maximum 1d6+10 at caster level10), with an additional 2d6 of bludgeoning damage (essentially considered untyped). Deals damage every 2 seconds, for a total of 30 seconds. 15 total tics as there is no initial tic.

Force enhancement lines now work on this spell (as well as cold). The spell uses the highest enhancement line to determine additional damage, and does not allow multiple enhancement lines to affect the spell.
