The stacks do not consume, but the additional movement impairment cannot happen on the same target more than once every few seconds.

Ability Details
Iceborn's Blessing is a passive non-damaging on-hit effect and on-spell debuff.

Additional Information:

  • Turn Rate is a term carried on from DotA. This represents a ratio that is granted to calculate the time required to turn into a commanded direction. Turn Rate it's traditionaly measured on the time required to turn 180º and expressed in radians per 0.03 seconds, thus takes π (~3.14) radians to take a 180º turn.
    • Turn Rate is considered a Slow icon slow for gameplay purposes.
    • The Turn Rate's equation is (0.03 × π) / T = t. Where T is the Turn Rate and t the time required to turn.
      • The Champion's time to turn is instant, despite this is not to imply zero, rather be that none possess a Turn Rate. True Ice just grant such to Ashe's enemies over the ability's duration.
      • True Ice effectively alters the targets time for a 180º turn to ~0.25 / 0.45 / 0.65 / 0.85 seconds.

  • The stacks of True Ice accumulate on the target, and are not reset if Ashe attacks a new target. This is unlike similar effects, such as Clockwork Windup Clockwork Windup and Eternal Thirst Eternal Thirst, which accumulate on the champion and reset whenever they attack a new target.
  • True Ice's movement speed and turn rate reduction, if triggered by a Frost Shot Frost Arrow empowered to Volley Volley, will affect all enemy units within the splash area.
  • True Ice applies "Chill", a debuff that interacts with AniviaSquare Anivia's Frostbite Frostbite.

Personal Notes

A good yet not enormous amount of aspects of her could be changed for the best, however, do not believe she is in a bad state or underpowered, I would argue that she's in a relatively good place. But, as this blog still exists, there is no other option but to mentions the problems:

  • Her innate passive is useful for last hitting, but beyond that nothing but initiating against a target. For the rest of the game is pretty much non-existing, specially once she gets fed and can one-shot minions or critically strikes every 1-2 attacks.
  • Her eponymous potential perma-slow, despite it is one of the crucial elements of her identity, and we are in a era where mobility and strong yet sporadic CC are more appreciated by both sides than a slow on each hit, someone would think that at these present moments would be acceptable, yet is precisely by this culprids that mobility and more consistent forms of CC became the current state of the game.
  • Despite changes here proposed pretty much convert her into something similar in game-style but different in gameplay, her E and R are perhaps the only elements worth of maintaining from her kit, are what makes her scale into late-game as one of the only utility ADCs of the game.
  • Be more attuned to her theme, thus:
    • Being a Frost Marks(wo)man: Applying CC from afar, and maintaining distance at all cost.
    • Being a trained Archer: The more precise her aim, and the more distant her arrows are, the deadlier she is.
    • Being a trained Scout: To deliver utility beyond impairing, to maintaing track of her foes and prevent danger.
    • Lack (reliable) mobility or simply movement, completely depending of kiting for her survival.
    • Maintain all changes faithful to her core gameplay, no matter the costs.
