21 November 2022Beyond the Veil UpdateHoarfrost Staff was underused since its last rework. Its cooldown was high relative to its effects, so this has been significantly decreased. Since Ice Crystal damage was significantly delayed, it could easily be reflected, making it risky for large fights. Its damage is now un-reflectable. Additionally, the Damage Increase duration of Frostbite is increased, so the buff no longer falls off as easily.
