Behavior

Phase 1:
The Ice Sphere will stay near its Ice Mage and orbit him while continuously firing waves of short range ice bullets. It is constantly vulnerable during all phases.

Phase 2:
The sphere may, without any warning, suddenly move towards the nearest player and stop in their last occupied position.

Phase 3:
If its master Ice Mage is killed, or the sphere has existed for too long, it will stop moving, and after a short delay (~1 second), trigger an enormous explosion of large white bullets.

Tips and Strategies

Bow Classes:

Always paralyze the ice sphere at any given opportunity. This will prevent it from entering its second phase and often allow it to self-destruct at a safe distance from other players.

Knights:

Stun the ice sphere during its 1st and 2nd phases but be aware that its self-destruct explosion cannot be prevented by any means short of outright killing it.

All other classes:

WARNING Avoid the ice sphere at all costs as its shots will quickly kill any character if it is allowed to get too close, with the 3rd phase being the most dangerous of them all. Although the shots are slow, they inflict incredible damage and may instantly kill any class.

It is often not worth focusing the ice sphere itself as it has very high hit-points and will almost always trigger self-destruct before it can be killed. Focus down the Ice Mage instead and immediately back up to avoid the sphere’s explosion.
