As with all:

  • Ice spells, it has the capability of freezing your targets, immobilising them for 19.2 seconds (=32 ticks).
  • Burst and Barrage spells, this spell hits up to nine targets in a 3x3 grid around its primary target.
  • Ancient Magicks spells, the quest Desert Treasure must be completed to cast this spell.

Players often use this spell on multiple enemies (in a multicombat area) to train Magic because the spell has the potential to gain high amounts of XP per hour. It is also often used in player killing and in minigames such as the Castle Wars minigame due to the spell's effectiveness. It also gives more Hitpoints experience than red chinchompas.

Players can cast this spell with a Magic level of 90 with the use of a Magic potion, or with a Magic level of 85 with the use of an imbued heart. Within Castle Wars, the stat-boosting potion allows this spell to be cast at much lower magic levels (and also satisfies the diary task requirement).
