|Encases you in an invulnerable block of permafrost that explodes and freezes nearby enemies!|
|Creates a ring of exploding ice traps that draw in enemies for extra damage!|
|Damage||30, 10, 10|
Element: Water (Ice) Type: Standard Subtype: None
Encase yourself in a block of ice for a short duration, allowing you to guard all attacks. Afterwards the block shatters which deals 30 damage and freezes nearby enemies.
If enhanced, 6 ice mines also surround you. If an enemy touches a mine they are immediately frozen and take 10 damage. When the ice block shatters, all the mines explode dealing 10 damage and freezing enemies nearby. This has the effect of also increasing the radius of the freeze.
Since you are invulnerable while encased in the ice, you can activate this arcana before an attack to avoid taking damage.
Avoid over-relying on the brief invulnerability or attempting to block attacks at every opportunity since very accurate timing is needed to block damage. Incorrect timing will cause you to take damage from the attack you were intending to block or from other enemies.
Instead of treating Permafrost Bulwark as temporary invulnerability, treat it as the ability to freeze enemies around you.
- Tearing Whirlwind can be used to pull in many enemies, allowing you to use Permafrost Bulwark to its maximum effect.
- Arcana that have a 360 degree area of effect such as Shock Nova, Whirling Tornado or Terra Ring are great for following up Permafrost Bulwark.
- If an enemy is at point blank range they will not be hit by the mines initially, however when ice block shatters they will be hit by 2 mines causing them to take 20 damage.
