Cryogenic Stasis trivia & strategies

  • Cryogenic Stasis heals Undead instead of damaging them, removes Shackles Of Pain as of Patch v3.0.168.526
  • If a character gets decaying while permafrosted, they will most likely be insta-killed once it expires
  • As Cryogenic Stasis "only" gives +100% resistances to all, permafrosted characters may still be damaged if they somehow have bad resistances, like if Nullified Resistances
  • A permafrosted character can be turned into a chicken, but they will still receive the healing
  • One of the only two skills that can cleanse Shackles of Pain, the other one being Break the Shackles, which is only available for Sebille

        I was tbh just browsing the shops and picked this up on my support summoner and thought "well, this might come in handy." It literally saved Gwydian's life in the Blackpits fight because it stopped him from just doing laps in the necrofire and killing himself, and also helped Fane. YES, it DOES heal undead. Fane recovers HP like every other unit I cast this on.

          A nice use of this skill is on characters with lots of auras. Run into the middle of a fight and buff up with stuff like Mend Metal, Soothing Cold, Venomous Aura, Firebrand, Vampiric Aura and Master of Sparks. Then just pop this and become invulnerable while your ultra-buffed party cleans house. Works especially well as a summoner since you create more buff targets and still have control over your main summon even when in stasis. Combine with Play Dead and Chameleon Cloak and become an invincible untargetable buff machine.

            Does not give true damage immunity, but +100% resistance to all damage types (including piercing) and most statuses.

            Does not protect against burning or Necrofire, which will not remove Permafrost but can lower your resistance enough to make you vulnerable to fire damage. Also does not prevent damage from Shackles of Pain.
