    i remember before the big ice revamp, 5 chill effects gave you an ice form...why was that taken out? it looked cool

    It's still there but it doesn't activate if you are using the max damage hand mod because the mod is better than ice armor.

    Because the lag on PS3 was so tremendous it took to long to change your character back to normal. Which is probably why they havent created a new CC type trinket.

    I do miss the old style Ice armor.

    This. This is what you used to get when you had five chill effects.

    Oh the old one, k. I prefer the new ones since the old was basically just Brick for males and Crystal for females.

    replace the useless ice devil with a power that could give us the ice form as one of the effects

    It looked cool to you. I don't want my Ice character to look like any other Ice character for most of the time. I am not running hundreds of time the same session to get a cool style and seeing it hidden by the powers I use. If it was up to me, i would eliminate even the current effect.

    ugh not the new forms are @#%$, old ones gave us ice users something unique apart from the other classes, now we have stupid shards coming out of our body. I want it back

    Ice elemental isn't useless though. Snow devil is. every ice tank I ran with uses Ice elemental as their go to SC, no dps uses snow devil or Ice elemental. I'd Love to see this kinda ice fourm make a return, The one we got on live servers is just...(No offense but I'm trying to put this gently as possible) Ugly.

    Yeah it very useful in very riskful situations for example : if the healers goes down in a boss fight use ice elemental, it wont heal your whole life bar, but it would keep you alive lol besides all of the immunity to control effects.

    You sort of can. If you use the max damage mod, the effect doesn't show up.
