Cryomancer Class Guide
The Cryomancer is a powerful caster that uses Cryogen and their Ice Crystal to chill foes to the bone and shatter the icy statues they leave behind.
SOLO AND TEAM PLAY
Your role as Cryomancer is Attacker—also known as DPS (damage per second)—and your focus in both solo and team play is mainly to keep your distance and unleash powerful ice based attacks. Begin your icy onslaught with Whiteout to create a snowstorm which will slow and damage your enemies, then follow up with Icy Comet to quickly deliver additional damage. Use Cryobeam (PvE only) and Icy Thorn to finish off any stronger enemies that might still be standing after your initial assault.
Use Glacial Fangs (PvE only) to freeze enemies dead in their tracks, and if that’s not enough, unleash the ultimate power of cold with Frost Shackles to instantly encase all enemies around you within an icy prison.
When facing a more powerful enemy, start by weakening it with Icy Dart which makes them susceptible to critical hits, then proceed with Whiteout and Cryobeam. If you gain the Cryocharge effect, use Icy Thorn to deliver maximum damage, otherwise use Jagged Ice (PvE only) and Icy Comet to close out your burst.
If you become overwhelmed, you can use Crystal Shield to significantly reduce any damage dealt to you. Glacial Fangs will freeze them and allow you to gain some distance.
The Cryomancer benefits the most from damage boosting stats, such as Main Damage, Critical Damage, and Critical Chance.
|Whiteout||Creates a 12 yard radius area. All enemies that enter the area take X damage every second. Lasts 12 seconds. Every 2 seconds Intense Cooling is applied that reduces their movement speed.|
|Icy Comet||Deals X points of damage to the target and all enemies in a 10 yard radius of it. Applies Intense Cooling which reduces movement speed. Range is 30 yards.|
|Cryobeam||Inflicts X damage to all enemies along the path of movement. Can consume twice as much Cryogen to inflict 3 times more damage and grant the Cryomancer a 50% chance to gain the Cryocharge effect for 10 seconds. Cryocharge increases the damage of the next two Icy Missiles charge level 1 (Icy Thorns) 2 times and makes them free. The ability is available in PvE adventures only.|
|Icy Thorn||Deals X damage to the enemy. Range is 30 yards. Activates companion’s attack. Deals 200% more damage to targets that have the Cryonic Suspension effect, removing it and knocking them down for 2 seconds while applying Intense Cooling.|
|Glacial Fangs||Inflicts X damage to all enemies in a cone-shaped area in front of the character and applies Cryonic Suspension to them for 4 seconds, completely immobilizing and silencing them. The ability is available in PvE adventures only.|
|Frost Shackles||Applies Cryonic Suspension to all enemies within a 16 yard radius, immobilizing and silencing them for 6 seconds. Inflicts X damage when the effect runs out. The stronger the enemy, the shorter the duration of the effect. The strongest enemies that are unaffected by it take 2 times more damage.|
|Icy Dart||Deals X damage to the target. Deals 3 times as much damage to shields. The attack also applies the Fragments effect to the target that deals X damage every second for 10 seconds and increases the Cryomancer’s chance to deal critical damage to the same target again by 15%. Range is 30 yards. Activates companion’s attack. Deals 200% more damage to targets that have the Cryonic Suspension effect, removing it and knocking them down for 2 seconds while applying Intense Cooling.|
|Jagged Ice||Deals X points of damage to the enemy every second for 5 seconds. The ability is available in PvE adventures only.|
Creates a shield that absorbs 80% of damage for 6 seconds. All targets in a 5 yard radius are affected by Intense Cooling that reduces their movement speed. The ability can be used while under control effects.
