Notes & Strategies

Frost Bite is incredibly versatile and immensely useful. Its effect can find application in every tier and its effects are beneficial on almost any target.

Use this spell to target valuable or powerful enemy targets, maximizing the payoff.

Campaign PvE

Frost Bite is highly effective when it is cast on targets of high priority. Typically, this is XL units and Bosses, who have the stats to pose a grave threat.

Its low cost means it can often be cast with impunity.

Random PvE

Frost Bite retains all of the same uses and benefits as in CPVE. However, this mode better incentivizes the Tainted affinity due to the sheer strength of players in the end-game. 25% becomes a huge boon.

PvP

Frost Bite can be incredibly useful in Player vs Player (PvP) thanks to the slowing effect and the added secondary debuff. While the Tainted affinity is very valuable, the Infused affinity can see application as well.

Strengths

GENERAL

  • Slows down enemy creatures, preventing them from escaping

Because Frost Bite slows down movement speed, an affected creature cannot simply run away from unfavorable odds, forcing a fight.

  • Offers a sheer advantage against powerful creatures.

The 25% damage vulnerability included with the Tainted affinity makes dealing with tough foes like Juggernaut Card Icon.png Juggernaut, Harvester Card Icon.png Harvester, and Skyfire Drake Card Icon.png Skyfire Drake much easier, and serves as an effective, cheap counter.

  • Reduces the combat effectiveness of enemy creatures, slowing the rate of damage.

The slowed attack speed makes it more difficult for creatures to inflict damage quickly, giving extra time to use defensive measures or cast spells.

Weaknesses

GENERAL

  • Frost Bite can be completely shut down by Disenchant Card Icon.png Disenchant.

Self-explanatory.
