Properties
Affects

Frostfire Orb is a Mage talent in the Frost tree, affecting [Frostfire Bolt] and [Flame Orb]. It gives the Flame Orb frost powers, transforming it into a "Frostfire Orb". This makes it one of the few "frostfire" spells used by Mages. Notably, this talent yields two completely different effects on each rank. The first transforms the orb while the second empowers it.
