Frost Bomb is a cold spell that places an orb that releases pulses which reduce life regeneration and energy shield regeneration, along with applying Cold Exposure. It will rapidly pulse before it explodes, dealing cold damage in an area.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Negative Resistances: Frost Bomb's Exposure can reduce resistances below 0, making enemies vulnerable to cold damage.
  • Hit: just the explosion counts as hit (in terms of Hextouch SupportHextouch SupportSupport, Hex, Trigger
