  • Chain Frost travels at a speed of 850 and cannot be disjointed.
  • The projectile bounces with a 0.2 second delay.
  • Can bounce on the same unit multiple times, but only when another target was hit between the bounces.
  • Can deal up to 2400 damage to a single unit (before reductions), since it can hit one unit up to 6 times.
  • The projectile has 800 range flying vision. The vision is not provided during the 0.2 second bounce delay.
  • Chain Frost stops providing vision and stops playing a sound upon hitting non-hero units when bouncing more than 60 times.

Travel Distance: 1500
Projectile Width: 100

Debuff Ice Giant Hex: Dispellable with death only.

  • Launches a straight-flying projectile, which hexes every hero it hits.
  • The projectile travels at a speed of 750, taking 2 seconds to reach max distance.
  • Applies a hex on the target, setting its base movement speed to 250.
    • However the target's movement speed is still affected by movement speed bonuses from items and abilities.
  • Since hex changes base movement speed and does not actually apply a slow, all speed effects are calculated using the 250 base speed.
  • The Ice Giant's hex transforms the targets into yaks.
