The 'frostflower' spell is one of the first, lowest level ice spells,
requiring very little mana and effort to cast. The caster summons a
handful of ice crystals to act as seeds, then scatters them. A short time
later, the crystals suddenly grow into spiked balls of ice, reinforced by
the magic within them. From a distance, they are considered beautiful,
and resemble crystal flowers.
Because the crystals grow so fast, and because the original crystals are
scattered, their sudden appearance can deal significant damage to nearby
The reason this otherwise difficult spell is castable at low levels is
due to a strange quirk of the elemental channel. Each of the seeds is
a small channel to the ethereal plane, and when forming the flowers mana
pours from the ice plane into ours. A few seconds later, the flow begins
to reverse, and just as quickly the flowers are pulled back and vanish.
