Black Ice is a rune effect in Ray of Frost, an Offensive Wizard skill.

This rune effect creates ice puddles where monsters die from the attack. These patches of ice deal 193% weapon damage over three seconds to enemies that move through them. The ideal way to use this rune effect is to kill an enemy where others are going to have to stand, thus ensuring that the cold damage radiates to them all for the full three seconds.
