A player casts Ice Burst.

Ice Burst is a combat spell that requires a Magic level of 70 and can do a maximum of 22 damage per hit (hence 22*9 = 198 maximum damage per spell.) You need to complete Desert Treasure quest to unlock the Ancient Magicks spellbook. It will freeze the player's target and any targets standing on an adjacent square to your target, including diagonals. The targets will be unable to move for 10 seconds.

Ice Burst is the most common Ancient spell used in Castle Wars and the Fight Pits, due to its relative low cost compared with Ice Barrage, the lower level required, and the relatively large number of targets in small spaces, especially on crowded worlds.

Ice Burst is also a common spell in Pest Control games due to the many monsters stuck in places where they cannot move. This was considered a very effective way of training magic, before an update, because Ice Burst can hit up to nine monsters at a time, doing as much as 198 damage per spell. However, due to the limit of 2 Experience per hit in Pest Control, after the update, this is no longer an effective way to train.

Ice Burst being used for maximum efficiency.

Ice Burst costs 1240 coins for each cast, 1088 coins if using a staff that provides water runes.

Remember, you cannot use normal spells or Lunar Spells if you are using the Ancient Magicks spellbook.
