Ice rings are rare items, similar to water, fire, lightning rings, that allow one to summon a jagged chunk of colored ice that can be worn (orbits the wearer) or played with. Available colors noted include red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, black, and white. These colors periodically shift to various hues of its assigned color. Due to its elemental nature, the ice will draw energy from its handler, generally about 1 mana per instance. Rings can be recharged by casting any water or ice based spell (Minor Water (903), Major Cold (907), Cold Snap (512), Holy Bolt (306)), Water Walking (112) or Dark Catalyst (719) while worn or in hand.
