    Idea: Red Ice

    Basically, similar to the Warlock's "Green Fire" quest, the end of this quest (which would take place in a phased version of Bloodmyst Isle) would give you a cosmetic makeover to your Ice spells, changing them from their normal color to blood red. This will also affect the appearance of your Water Elemental, and the Frost Mage's version of the Arch Mage's Prismatic Disc. You would, of course, be able to switch back to the normal ice color and vice versa.

    But green fire has some lore behind it. They are warlocks. It's demonic fel flame. What's your justification for red ice other then something different or "oh! Pretty!"?

    Yeah except that's a different school of magic entirely.

    Green felfire is still, in the basest sense, fire. There is NOTHING linking Blood to Ice magic at all.

    You're right, but an actual Blood spec for mages will never be added. So, let's just go with "Imbue your magic with blood!"

    I was refering to the corrupted, radiated waters in Bloodmyst Isle. Thats why my idea for the quest would take place in Bloodmyst Isle.

    Sure, but can I then have my paladin shooting rainbows instead of yellow light?

    Just imagine, that Avenging Wrath with all the colours of the rainbow and sparkles. Gimme!

    Frostfire was the closest we had to that.

    Wrong color.

    Black ice of bust.

    I'd take blue fire over red ice.

    then again i'd take purple ice and purple fire over anything. make it all arcane imo.

    God, why can't they just replace flurry with frostfire bolt?

    Frostfire bolt never made a lot of sense...a fireball encased in frost, didn't they even make a april fools about that?
    Hope, the greatest power of all!

    It's magic. It doesn't have to make sense.

    i'd much rather have either blue flames, or a re-skin of one of the specs to be a void-based shadowmage.

    how cool would it be to have some fucking amaterasu-like black and blue void fire? would be fucking sick.

    I know, I absolutely LOVED the animation AND the sound the spell made. Same goes for the old Arcane Barrage, loved the shiny, misty, swirling projectile as opposed to the more colorful and cleaner version we have now.
