Ice Arrow is an Amazon Skill in Diablo II. An upgrade over the Cold Arrow, it deals more cold damage and can freeze monsters.


The second of the prizes Karcheus bestows to a true warrior, this skill enables the Amazon to instill her arrows with the glacial force of a fierce blizzard. Enemies struck by this power not only feel the icy sting of the enchanted shaft, but also the force of a chilling arctic wind that, mysteriously, they alone can feel.

General InformationEdit


While Ice Arrow completely freezes most targets, other players and elite enemies (such as Champion monsters, Unique Monsters or Act Bosses) are only slowed rather than getting frozen when they are hit with this spell.

Although freezing an enemy is overall useful, the damage and range of this skill is completely outclassed by Freezing Arrow. Ice Arrow's main advantage over Freezing Arrow is that extra skill points increase the freeze duration, allowing the Amazon to halt an enemy for far longer than Freezing Arrow allows her to.
