Those so affected will find their movement drastically hindered and are easily dispatched back to the Hells from whence they spawned. Holy Freeze cannot be used in conjunction with Holy Fire.

The following attributes will affect this combat art:

  • Stamina will lower regeneration time penalty.

Usage Strategies

  • Hits enemies in pulses and also boosts any ice damage (weapon or spell) that the Paladin or party members may be inflicting.
  • Holy Freeze does not cause any damage, but the freezing effect cannot be resisted. Enemy total speed is decreased for 6 seconds, and the buff will constantly reapply its effects.
  • Ice damage mitigation from Resist Cold stacks with other sources of damage mitigation and can eventually reach 100% (ice immunity).

Pros and Cons


  • Boosts the Paladin's ice weapon damage
  • Freezing effect can't be resisted by enemies
  • Useful for ice-wielding party members


  • Doesn't cause any damage
  • Can't be used with Holy Fire
  • Known Bug: Holy Shield when it expires will deactivate Holy Freeze as well, necessitating a recast of Holy Freeze. This is due to a vanilla code limitation that has yet to be alleviated.
