Ice
Specializing in Tank abilities, Ice is a Power Set available for a character during Character Creation. Characters that choose to master subzero temperatures make for challenging foes. During combat, ice wielders have the ability to lock down opponents who come within their chilling reach.


CryogenicsEdit

Ice Cryogenic Tree

Cryogenic powers revolve around freezing things in ice, including yourself!
Specializing in this tree grants +1% Critical Attack Chance and +35 Health.

Tank Role: In the Tank role, Dominance is increased by 100%. Using super powers increases your Defense and Toughness by 90% and will attract the attention of enemies causing them to attack you, rather than allies. Finally you gain +3 Perception, improving your chances of detecting Stealth-using enemies.

Player versus Player: While in the Tank role you have a special advantage versus Gadgets, Mental, Light and Quantum power users. You are immune to their debuffing effects and highly resistant to their controls. Some abilities provide you and allies total immunity to Controller effects.
Your harmful super powers remove beneficial Controller effects such as power over time and reduces their ability to restore power to allies in Controller role. Using harmful super powers against them inspires Confidence within you, briefly increasing your damage output to 135%.
