While Winter Stroke can help catch enemies from further away, Marksmen must be careful not to freeze enemies which are being attacked by the Marksmen's allies. Not only does it prevent the allies from attacking, it may also allow the target to escape if they cast Low Profile, Unstoppable Madness, Sanctuary, Army of One, Son of the Wind or other escape spells immediately after the freeze ends.
