I am as close to a physical incarnation of frost magic as exists in this world, and my knowledge if it is more extensive than you could possibly imagine. Of metals, I know very little. Most metals that I have encountered become extremely brittle when exposed to extreme cold temperatures. While some do retain their strength, and have even served as armor for me, I am quite unable to engage in the mining of metals and ores. Perhaps you would be better served directing this question to Malphite.
Enchantment is a complicated story. You must be as familiar as I with the Frozen Mallet of the league artifacts, and Ashe's enchanted crystal arrow is a sight to behold, yet these are not items that I could replicate. You'll notice that my body is adorned with runes and glyphs. In my homeworld, such markings were regarded as a birthmark of sorts, and little was made of them. Ryze tells me, however, that these runes are very similar to those used for the control of ice magics. While I have never myself engaged in the enchantment of items, but there were times on my homeworld that civilizations powerful with magic would send the phoenixes acolytes to serve as liaison to their people and aid us in our own daily lives. These acolytes often gained great power in the element under which they served, and created artifacts that rival those of the league. The passing of such power has never been a goal of mine, but it stands to reason that there is much to be learned. Again, the scholars of your world would be much greater sources of this knowledge than I.
As for the changing of forms, all know that I can assume the form you see, and that of the egg that will form when this body dies. This is certainly not a power that is under my control, but a change in form nonetheless. As a Cryophoenix, I am perhaps less maleable to change than a phoenix of fire, or electricity. I suppose I could coax more ice onto my form, but that would seem very unwieldy to me. If I could take a humanoid form, it would certainly aid in my dealings with your people... but no, even the thought of it is uncomfortable to me. Transformational magics certainly work on me, though. Rest assured, being turned into a squirrel, cat, or cupcake by Lulu is most unpleasant.
