Ice Block [Active]

Activate to place yourself in Stasis and gain Invulnerability for 3 seconds.


Tier 5 (Hero Level 13)

Ice Block is a Generic Talent that provides a temporary invulnerability in the exchange of inability to move, attack or cast abilities. It is very effective to survive high burst damage or crowd control, in the latter case serving as a form of Cleanse. If a team member who has access to Ice Block gets focus fired, the ability allows them to a small window of time for their team to regroup and save the focused team member.

The Ice Block and similar talents can usually be canceled early.
