Cold is one of the most common elemental forces you will encounter as you explore the Dungeon, consisting of ice-themed and otherwise cool attacks.

Cold Damage

Characters have many ways to gain cold damage. Ice Magic is the most evident, but just about any character can use freezing-branded weapons or a wand of iceblast.

Cold damage is reduced by cold resistance (rC+). Cold-blooded creatures, including player Draconians, are slowed by a few specific cold attacks: weapons of freezing, Freeze, Frozen Ramparts, freezing vapours, Ozocubu's Refrigeration. Having rC+ negates being cold-blooded.

The cold resistance intrinsic significantly reduces the cold damage you take when attacked:

1 50% 50%
2 33% 20%
3 20% 0%

You can acquire cold resistance from a number of sources:

Cold vulnerability causes you to take x150% normal damage from most cold attacks, and x200% damage from freezing melee attacks. You can acquire it by:
