Frostbite is a spell that curses all targets in an area, making them less resistant to cold damage and giving cold damage a chance to freeze.

Skill Functions and Interactions

  • Negative Resistances: This curse can cause resistance values to dip into the negative, if the base values are low enough. This will have the effect of increasing the damage above values listed on the character screen. For example, a monster that has 0% cold resistance, and then is inflicted with level 1 Frostbite, will take 25% more (multiplicative) cold damage than the spell or attack would normally cause.
  • Frostbite can be turned into an aura by linking it with the Blasphemy SupportBlasphemy SupportSupport, Curse, Aura
