Cost: 35 Arcane Power
Hurl an orb of pure energy that explodes when it hits, dealing 200% weapon damage as Arcane to all enemies within 10 yards.
Arcane Orb - Frozen Orb
The orb will pierce through targets, dealing no damage to enemies it passes through. The orb splinters dozens of shards from its epicenter that deal 20% weapon damage as Cold to enemies hit.
Proc Coefficients and Balancing Estimates ***I'm sure the numbers will need to be tweaked after play-testing. Basically, don't hate me for trying.***:
[-]Each Frozen Shard deals 20% weapon damage as Cold and applies the "Chilled" effect.
[-]Each Frozen Shard extends from the center of where the orb released it to a maximum of 15 yards. Hitting a target or object ends the Frozen Shard's path.
[-]Frozen Shards are released from the epicenter of the orb in three directions that spin on the orb's axis with the rotation of the orb.
[-]Frozen Shards are released in each of these three directions at a rate of 6 Shards per second.
[-]The orb rotates at a speed of 2 full rotations per second.
[-]The orb travels in the casted direction for 75% of the Maximum distance other Arcane Orbs can travel. Maximum distance traveled over 3 seconds. Colliding with "Waller" affix walls or inanimate objects, at any time before the orb travels its maximum distance, ends the spell.
[-]Proc Coefficient of Orb: 0.000
[-]Proc Coefficient of Frozen Shards: 0.034 (roughly 0.333/10). I'm guessing at an appropriate proc rate by estimating 10 hits vs a single target.
