- Frost summons an avalanche that freezes enemies over a duration of 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 seconds within a radius of 8 / 10 / 12 / 15 meters. Frozen enemies have their armor reduced by 25 / 30 / 35 / 40% of their current armor (like Corrosive proc) for the duration of the freeze.
- Once the avalanche completely encompasses the area of effect after a short delay, 800 / 1000 / 1200 / 1500 Cold damage is dealt to all frozen enemies. Frozen enemies violently shatter upon death and inflict 100 / 200 / 300 / 400 Cold damage with a 100% status chance within 3 / 3.5 / 4 / 4.5 meters.
- Casting Freeze on a target frozen by Avalanche will extend the armor reduction and freeze duration. The effects will expire when Freeze ends or when Freeze's health threshold is reached.
- Avalanche cannot be cast while airborne.
- Can be recast on frozen enemies multiple times, restarting the armor reduction and freeze duration.
- Has a cast time of ~2.4 seconds and a cast delay of ~0.75 seconds.
- The armor reduction is applied after ~1 second of the casting animation has passed.

- To achieve 100% armor reduction with a rank-3 Avalanche, reaching 250% Ability Strength is required. Increasing Ability Strength beyond this percentage will not benefit the armor reduction further.
- Avalanche can be used to immobilize large groups of enemies, as even if it does not kill enemies outright it lowers their armor, allowing players to finish off any survivors.
