I know, there isn't chance to stun someone with it positioned like I was in that arena...
Funny thing is to reach to 1800 and get weapons by hiting people who can't hit you. :D

Because you cant move a bit away from the pillar or go to another one or just attack them, right? :P

Can't believe everyone misses the obvious details. They are stood behind a pillar, under a bridge. There is no way to place Blizzard on them from the Mage's location, without having the Blizzard placed on top the bridge and let it fall through. If the Mage was down, yes, but from up there, no. There is a "roof" in the way. Or if he placed it further back, the pillar should be in the way. Intended or not, this is not a "legit" move..

To me it seems like blizzard is coming from under the bridge, not over.

He can reach there in a normal way I think, not sure. Will have to check.

Fastor I know you're a mage and I confirm that Blizzard did reach me, but it reached me because of bug abuse, just look at my screen shots, and look where I'm standing and where is he...

Only 1 pixel need not to be in los from caster, that pixel is very center of circle of Blizzard. l believe l had been able to reach in arena to cast that, will try it as soon as l get in and make screen shot.

i saw ur ss and i can tell u that spot is reachable w/o abusing...im playing mage too and i used it in very same situation,
even standing on same pillar...by lowering angle of ur camera in blade's edge mountains(no need to arena just to test)
u can see that u can hit the spot as in

and if you dont believe it, google it
and for those wondering about "roof" or smthing,this was most likely placed on ground next to that pillar on spot in line
of sight AND bellow bridge

If you take that "sketch" of how the LoS works, and put the Blizzard on the other side of the pillar to reach him. From the Top, like in the screenshots, then you'll find that you can't place the Blizzard on the ground. Yes I am sure, I play priest and I've tried to Mass Dispel people there countless of times, but LoS always screwed it. From the bottom (like the sketch shows) the bridge is also in the way and there is just no LoS option to reach someone behind the pillar.

Btw Fastor, lowering and turning the angle of your camera might work to place the Blizzard circle and SS the green ring, but that Blizzard won't be in LoS of the casting mage.

I don't see the mage anywhere in the screenshot so I cannot tell where he was. Blizzard should hit whilst the target isn't in los in the appointed scenarios above. Unless any other evidence comes up I'll be locking and moving this as there's nothing conclusive to justify an action being taken.

Thank you for your time and and thanks to everyone that has contributed to this.
