Frost Shield is a spell that creates a chilling field in an area around you when cast for a duration. The area drains your energy shield when initially cast, and uses the absorbed energy shield to redirect a percentage of the damage the user takes to itself while the user is within it. The user also gains increased spell critical strike chance while within the field.
