Ice Burst is the second tier Ice spell from the Ancient Magicks spellbook, available at level 70 Magic. It is capable of hitting up to 22 damage (without any magic damage boosts) per cast.

As with all:

  • Ice spells, it has the capability of freezing your targets, immobilising them for 10 seconds.
  • 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.

Ice Burst is the most common Ancient spell used in Castle Wars and the Fight Pits, due to its relative low cost compared with Ice Barrage, the lower level requirement, and the relatively large number of targets in small spaces, especially on crowded worlds.

It is also used as a cheaper alternative to Ice Barrage, used to train Magic (and Defence) quickly. See Magic training for more information.
