This is the most effective offensive spell that this discipline has to offer. With the invocation of this spell, entire hordes of enemies are left chilled or dead, drowned in a hail of ice. Wretched survivors of this wintry storm can do little but crawl and lament their fallen kin before they, too, succumb to the cold.

By far the most offensively powerful Cold Spell, Blizzard deals large amounts of damage over a rather large area of effect, and is therefore chosen as the staple skill for builds such as the Blizzard Sorceress.
Even though it is extremely powerful (especially with synergies), Blizzard does have some drawbacks. For one, although it can stack on top of itself to deal major damage, it has a considerable Casting Delay that stops it from being cast in quick succession; it is therefore important to have proper aim with Blizzard, which sometimes may be difficult as the shards of ice are sometimes difficult to gauge in position.
Also, Blizzard deals its damage over a period of 4 seconds. Some enemies, if they're quick enough, can dodge Blizzard altogether, although they will most likely suffer at least one hit.
Both Blizzard and Frozen Orb are effective crowd control spells. It is simply their methods of effect that differ, Blizzard being a traditional AoE spell, Frozen Orb a projectile.
