    Default Ice Barrage

    Name: Ice Barrage
    Type: Creature Spell
    Does/effect: Freezes enemies surrounding the caster, immobalizing them and making them unable to defend themselves. Ice Barrage lasts less long than the Freeze spell. No damage is dealt.
    Raduis: Sightly smaller than Word of Power
    Duration: 4-6 Seconds
    Recharge: 40-50 Seconds (25-35 Seconds in Possession)
    Style: Mainly a defensive spell but an offensive action is very effective aswel.

    Word of Power & Ice Barrage:
    Whereas Word of Power is associated with fire and destruction, Ice Barrage is associated with cold and death. Almost two opposites like fire and water (ice would be better said in this case) with entirely different effects, though equally destructive if correctly used.

    What do you guys think of it? It's always open to improvement but because I think it's powerful like Rebound or Word of Power (if you added the supposed damage it should do, instead of just pushing enemies away) it should given only to certain creatures and/or heroes only.

    Share your thoughts about it, please on a constructive way.

    XD, looks like you pay attention to the suggestions...

    Anyways, I think it is a great idea. Maybe we could give it to the Tentacle? If he is a bonus type creature, then there we go. It fits him so well. We definately don't want common creatures getting thier hands on this. Possibly the Fairy and Wizard could use this too.

    Edit-
    Looking at DK1 stats, I think I got a good Effect Time/Recharge Time.

    Duration: 4-6 Seconds
    Recharge: 40-45 Seconds (25-30 Seconds in Possession)

    I do my homework you know!

    The wizard would be an undoubtly ideal candidate for this spell, so will most other spellcasters benefit from this spell. But I'm a bit so-so about giving it to say, your example the Tentacle. Even though he makes rare appearances he's still capable of holding his own.

    Spellcasters? Yes, always have this spell open for them
    Melee fighters? A bit of a grey area I think, does it fit? Doesn't make it them too powerful?

    Edit:

    Let me look at DK1's creatures and see where this spell would fit in (DK2 used more melee fighters than magical)

    Wizard-Level 10 (As you said, perfect)

    Witch-Level 9 (I'm not entirely sure, maybe because it seems like thier kind of thing)

    Fairy-Level 7 (Maybe, and it gives them a very good defense as they are fragile, but this is more of a defensive spell and the Fairy is 90% Offensive)

    Samurai-Level 10 (Maybe, cause he has freeze and tracking down targets is easier :P)

    Ghost-Level 10 (Probably, like you said, cold and death)

    (You know why I don't say much on spell threads?)

    The spell sounds pretty good.

    (Thats it. I'm awful at attacking Spells.)

    Wizard - Agreed

    Witch - I don't see the witch much of a user of ice spells but it can fit actually. If this spell was used in DK1 it would pretty ruin the day for your bile demons trying to catch her.

    Fairy - I don't know why, but having this spell doesn't feel right with this hero.

    Samurai - Ideal example the spell can be used offensively aswel, with huge effect!

    Ghost - Acceptable.

    Now imagine if the Avatar had this spell and could use it in the final level of Dungeon Keeper I.

    Imagine Horny... Horny is a better Melee fighter. Being frozen and Horny is coming at you. Yup, we're dead. Lolz. Just gave me a funny idea. What happens when you use slow on a DK1 Giant? But let's not go too far off topic with that.

    I like it, but maybe the Recharge Time should be increased a bit. Seems too short for a spell like this.

    Are we talking about the non-possesion recharge time or the possesion recharge? Or both? Either way, I don't think a 2.5 to 5 second increase would hurt.
