The Ice Rod is a staff that launches a paralyzing whirlwind of cold. It can be found in Castle Karstaag Ruins on Solstheim.

The Ice Rod may also be crafted at the staff enchanter at Tel Mithryn, provided that the player knows Serenade of Water or has obtained the Triforce of Knowledge.

"Deep Freeze Paralyze" is a customized version of the perk-based effect of the same name. It does not rely on perks and will always freeze foes it touches, unless they resist paralysis.

The slowness effect will occur if the storm projectile makes contact with a foe, and will last for 2 seconds after they thaw from their paralysis.

Background and Inspiration Edit

The Ice Rod is based on the item of the same name from A Link to the Past and A Link Between Worlds. Its appearance is closely modeled after its sprite from the former game.Its function is also very similar, freezing enemies, albeit only temporarily.

JKalenad has plans to raise the duration of the Ice Rod's slowness effect.
