Ice Blades

From Diablo 4 Wiki

Ice Blades is a Sorcerer skill from the Conjuration skill tree. Its features are:

Grants Player Exploits Condition
Cold Dmg Vulnerable

'Creates Condition' means this skill creates this condition i.e it could make a target Vulnerable that other skills can take advantage of. 'Exploits Condition' means this skill takes advantage of a condition, not necessarily of its own making. So for example another skill might Stun and this skill could take advantage of that.

For every 40 seconds in Cooldowns you spend, you spawn an Ice Blades on a random enemy.
