Winter's Reach

Source Pathfinder #72: The Witch Queen's Revenge pg. 63
Aura strong evocation and transmutation CL 19th
Slot none; Price 228,000 gp; Weight 5 lbs.


This staff is made of a single icicle that tapers to a sharpened point at each end. It can be used as a +3 icy burst quarterstaff (only one end of the staff bears this magical enhancement), even if all of its charges are drained. It allows the use of the following spells and abilities:
  • FrostbiteUM (1 charge)
  • Ice storm (1 charge)
  • Freezing sphere (2 charges)
  • Icy prisonUM (2 charges)
  • Wall of ice (2 charges)
  • Cone of cold (3 charges)
  • Ice bodyUM (3 charges)
Like a frost brand, Winter’s Reach extinguishes all nonmagical fires in a 20-foot radius. As a standard action, it can also dispel lasting fire spells, but not instantaneous effects. The bearer must succeed at a dispel check (1d20+19) against each spell to dispel it. The DC to dispel such spells is 11 + the caster level of the fire spell. The staff can also be used to counterspell any spell with the fire descriptor as if with dispel magic. Dispelling or counterspelling a fire spell in this way uses 1 charge.


Requirements Craft Staff, cone of cold, dispel magic, freezing sphere, frostbiteUM, ice bodyUM, ice storm, icy prisonUM, wall of ice; Cost 114,000 gp
