25 April 2022Lands Awakened Patch 8Frost Staffs were dominant in various areas of the game. With their peak damage output when stacking multiple cast time modifiers, they outshone most other ranged DPS. While keeping this playstyle generally intact, the damage output of Ice Shard has been reduced slightly, to lower the peak DPS that Frost Staffs can reach. In addition, as Freezing Wind had a large CC area on a relatively low cooldown, this cooldown has been increased.
