This weekend: Frost SpiritReaver Class

A Chill Start to a New Year

Abel, the Champion of Ice, is calling for you again. A new class is yours for the taking, should you undertake the tasks to unlock it. The Frost SpiritReaver is a powerful class built for solo and PvP play, focusing on charging up with frost spirits and gaining stacks of Frozen Essence to unleash in battle.

How to Unlock the Class

You can only access the powers of the Frost SpiritReaver by attuning yourself to the Plane of Ice and completing Abel’s new tasks.

  • You will also need the Fallen Scythe of Vengeance (from /northstar), IceBreaker Mage armor and the FrostSlayer sword (from /iceplane), and the Envoy of Kyanos armor (from /icedungeon).

This class is permanent and non-seasonal. As long as you fulfill the requirements, you can always get this class.

Frost SpiritReaver Class Details

Description: Recommended enhancement: Wizard, Lucky

Granted a portion of the Champion of Ice’s power, Frost SpiritReavers are ice mages that battle by unleashing the power of the frost spirits that they gather. 

Mana Regen: Frost SpiritReavers regain 10 Mana when using Spirit Ripper or Spirit Freeze.

 

Skill Breakdown

Spirit Ripper
Rank needed: Auto attack
Target: Enemy
Max targets: 1
Type: Physical
Range: Medium
Cooldown: 2 seconds

Use your ethereal Spirit to deal real damage and regain 10 Mana. 

When able to gather Frozen Essence, gain 1 stack per auto attack.

A basic attack that always regenerates 10 MP. Fast, consistent damage that grants a steady flow of MP regen to power your skills.

Spirit Freeze

Rank needed: 1
Target: Enemy
Max targets: 1
Type: Physical
Range: Long
Cooldown: 4 seconds

Flash Freeze your foe’s Spirit, stunning them for 2 seconds and chilling them from the inside while gaining 10 Mana. Applies Spirit Chill, preventing Flash Frozen but reducing target Haste and Dodge by 15% for 12 seconds (doesn’t refresh). 

When able to gather Frozen Essence, gain 2 stacks per cast.

This skill only stuns your foe if they don’t already have Spirit Chill. This is similar to Lord of Order’s ultimate skill, but more as a combo piece. Even then, using this at the start of battle gives you the time you need to charge up your other skills. Also regenerates 10 MP to use for your more costly skills.

Spirit Charge
Rank needed: 2
Target: Self
Max targets: 1
Type: Magical
MP Cost: 50
Cooldown: 14 seconds

Drain energy from the frigid environment to heal and protect yourself. Gain Spirit Vanishing for 6 seconds, reducing incoming damage by 30%.

If your Spirit is being Synchronized, Fully Synchronize for 3 seconds, increases Hit Chance by +100% and Outgoing Magical Damage by 150%.

When able to gather Frozen Essence, gain 5 stacks per cast.

A strong healing skill that grants you damage resistance. Fully Synchronized Spirit offers an enormous boost to magical damage that greatly empowers your final skill. Some of your other skills also rely on whether or not you have Spirit Vanishing, which means this isn’t always a skill you can use whenever it’s ready. When combined with the +100% Hit Chance from Spirit Synchronization, this class becomes a significant threat to dodge class!

Spirit Banishment
Rank needed: 3
Target: Enemy
Max targets: 1
Type: Physical
Range: Infinite
MP Cost: 20
Cooldown: 6 seconds

Attempt to banish your foe’s Spirit and gain Spirit Vanishing for 6 seconds, reducing incoming damage by 30%. If Spirit Vanishing was already active, reduces your foe’s defense by 30% for 4s and inflicts a large DoT for 8s. Otherwise, inflicts Spirit Damage, reducing their Hit Chance by 50% for 2 seconds. Can’t crit.

When able to gather Frozen Essence, gain 3 stacks per cast.

A skill that pretends to be two skills depending on whether or not you have Spirit Vanishing, this skill either gives your foe a Hit Chance debuff or a DoT + defense debuff. This skill also grants Spirit Vanishing, which means using this skill too often will prevent you from ever getting the defensive effect.

Spirit Synchronization
Rank needed: 5
Target: Enemy
Max targets: 1
Type: Magical
Range: Medium
MP Cost: 30
Cooldown: 10 seconds

Synchronize with the frost spirits you have gathered to gain +100% Hit Chance and the ability to gather Frozen Essence. Cast again to expend your stacks of Frozen Essence for massive damage that never misses and always crits.

If Spirit Vanishing is active, inflicts Spirit Shattering for 20 seconds, increasing foe’s damage taken by 20%.

If cast with Fully Synchronized Spirit active, removes all Synchronization effects and applies Spirit Cooldown.

This skill initially does very little damage, but for the next 20 seconds, allows you to gain Frozen Essence from your other skills. Build up stacks, and then use Spirit Synchronization again to deal big damage based off of your stack count. 

Although you will always reset stacks of Frozen Essence by using this skill, you will only desynchronize (and lose Frozen Essence Gathering) if you had Fully Synchronized Spirit active. Otherwise, you can cast this skill while under Spirit Vanishing to whittle away your foe’s defense with Spirit Shattering before landing a stacked nuke.

Passives

Spirit Chill
Rank needed: 4
Type: Passive
Increases Outgoing Damage by +15%.

Spirit Blink
Rank needed: 4
Type: Passive
Caps Haste to maximum.

Spirit Reckoning
Rank needed: 10
Type: Passive
Crit Multiplier +30%

A set of fairly simple passives. The rank 4 granting +100% haste is why the skills have relatively long cooldowns. Although you will not benefit from further haste buffs, you’ll also find yourself unaffected by quite a few haste debuffs...

Conclusion

Frost SpiritReaver has a lot of interesting tools to use for several types of players. It offers enough defense to battle most bosses, enough damage boosting to be a group fight member without being a dedicated support class, and enough tricks to take on challengers in PvP. 

This class has great potential by managing how you juggle Frozen Essence and Spirit Vanishing with your other skills. Similar to Dragon of Time, if you fulfill all the prerequisites, this class will not be particularly hard to obtain. If you aren’t familiar with the Plane of Ice and the journey that has led you and Abel thus far, it’s time to learn!
