Ancient Apparition projects his presence out to make way for a powerful ripple of hailstone and dark magic. Once cast, it can release the spell to strike targets within 200 area of where his presence was upon release. It will deal damage to enemy units and apply a frostbite curse on them for 7 seconds where their health regeneration will be frozen and will shatter if they fall close enough to death. This spell has global range depending on how long you wait for the projections to move. Frostbitten units will take minor damage over time.

Cold Feet is taken early for obvious reason. Combined with a stun/slow, your enemies will likely captured frozen. This skills also can be used to get First Blood. IceVortex is the next skill as it synergies well with Cold Feet. The slow is very useful to ensure your Cold Feet success, not to mention the magic resistance reduce.
Ice Blast is taken whenever you can. It's one of the best global nukes, you will likely need some time though to be able to cast it on target. Chilling Touch is taken last because it more useful in a team fight which happen on mid-late game.
