Powers[]

The following are powers in the Cold Domination powerset.

ColdDomination ArcticFog.png Arctic Fog[]

Your mastery of cold allows you to hide yourself and all nearby allies within thick arctic fog. Arctic Fog makes you and your allies harder to see and increases your defense to melee and ranged attacks, as well as your resistance to slow, fire, cold, and energy damage. You cannot use any other concealment type powers while using arctic fog.

ColdDomination Benumb.png Benumb[]

Numbs a single target to its very core. Benumb reduces the target's core body temperature, dramatically weakening him. A benumbed target's damage and regeneration rate are greatly reduced.

The target's powers' effects like heals, defense buffs, endurance drains, disorients, holds, immobilizes, knockbacks and more, are all weakened.

ColdDomination Glaciate.png Glacial Shield[]

Envelopes an ally in gleaming Glacial Ice. Its crystalline structure has refracting properties that grants the target good Defense against energy and negative energy attacks. Glacial Shield also grants the target some damage resistance to cold. You cannot stack multiple Glacial Shields on the same target, however the shield can be improved by another ally using the same power. Can also be used in conjunction with your ice shield. You cannot use this power on yourself.

ColdDomination HeatLoss.png Heat Loss[]

Heat Loss drains the heat from your enemies and transfers that energy to your allies in the form of endurance. All foes near the selected target may experience a heat loss, which will drain their endurance, slow them, and reduce their damage resistance. Each enemy target that is successfully drained of heat will expel that energy to all your nearby allies, granting them endurance and a boost to their endurance recovery. Some endurance and recovery will also be transferred directly to you and any allies near you.

You cannot use this power on yourself.
