- The Ice Trap allows hunters to reposition themselves for a better shot... or, if the need arises, to run.
Ice Trap is a Hunter ability learned at level 46. It provides an area that slows movement speed of enemies in the affected area by 50%. It can be used to slow enemies multiple times since you can always lead the mob over the ice slick to easily reapply the snare. This makes kiting mobs, especially multiple mobs, in circles much easier.
