Wizards who specialize in an elemental arcane school can further refine their studies by choosing a focused school.
Wizards who choose a focused school keep the bonus spells from their elemental school and must select an opposition elemental school as normal, but a focused school replaces some of the powers granted by their elemental school. Once a focused school is chosen, it can’t be changed.
Associated Schools: Air, water.
Replacement Powers: The following school powers replace the lightning flash and cyclone powers of the air school and the cold blast and wave powers of the water school.
Freezing Shards (Su)
As a standard action, you can cause shards of ice to burst forth from the ground around you.
The shards deal 1d4 points of piercing damage and 1d6 points of cold damage + 1 point for every 2 wizard levels you have to all creatures within 5 feet of you. A successful Reflex save (DC = 10 + half your wizard level + your Intelligence modifier) negates the piercing damage and halves the cold damage. The shards remain until the beginning of your next turn; during this time, the area is difficult terrain. You are not affected by your own freezing shards and can move through the area normally. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Intelligence modifier.
Icy Shackles (Su)
At 8th level, as a standard action, you can make a melee touch attack against a foe to conjure icy restraints around its ankles, reducing its base speed to 5 feet and dealing it an amount of cold damage at the beginning of its turn equal to your Intelligence modifier. The manacles have AC 10, hardness 0, and 30 hit points, and a creature can destroy them with a successful Strength check (DC = 10 + half your wizard level + your Intelligence modifier) as a standard action. The icy shackles melt away after 1 minute. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to your Intelligence modifier.
