Icy Veins is a mage ability learned at level 36 for those who have chosen the Frost specialization. It increases the casting speed of all spells by 20% and increases the chance to avoid interruption caused by damage while casting any spell by 100% while active.


Under the effects of Icy Veins, spells that normally take 3 seconds to cast will then take 2.5 seconds. Spells that were 2.5 seconds will then cast in 2.08 seconds. Spells that cast in 1.5 seconds will then cast in 1.25 seconds.

Icy Veins does stack with Bloodlust and Heroism buffs from shamans, and Power Infusion from priests.

Like all haste effects, Icy Veins will speed up all channeled spells, such as [Blizzard] and [Evocation]. Note that spells will cast at the faster cast time even if the Icy Veins buff expires while mid-cast or mid-channel, meaning that the buff is effectively longer than the 20 second buff duration.

Like most temporary self buffs, Icy Veins can be used off the global cooldown, and does not trigger it.
