Overview Edit

Ice Armor is a Tanker primary powerset and a Scrapper, Brute, Stalker and Sentinel secondary powerset in City of Heroes.

You can dramatically reduce your core body temperature to form various armors of ice around yourself. You can protect yourself from many different damage types, and you gain exceptional resistance to cold based attacks. However, this set offers little protection to fire base powers and no protection against psionics.

Your other toggles will remain active while in Hibernation but you cannot affect anyone during this time. You also cannot activate any powers until you come out of Hibernation.

IceArmor Hide Hide Edit

Hide makes you almost impossible to detect. When properly 'Hidden', a Stalker can pull off critical hits with his attacks, and even land a massive 'Assassins Strike' with an Assassins power. When you attack or are damaged while using this power, you will be discovered. Even if discovered, you are hard to see and retain some bonus to defense. Unlike most stealth powers, Hide can be used at the same time as other concealment powers, giving you even greater stealth capability. No Endurance cost.
