Overview Edit

Ice Melee is one of the powersets. It is a Tanker secondary power set in City of Heroes. (It was briefly a Brute primary power set in the City of Villains Beta but proved to counteract Fury.)

Ice Melee allows the player to use Cold-based attacks, and even conjure up frozen melee weapons. Ice Melee powers are known for their ability to slow an opponent.
