Cryo is one of the seven Elements.

Its associated Archon is the Tsaritsa, whose domain is Snezhnaya.

Elemental Resonance

Having two Cryo characters in the group results in the Elemental Resonance:

  • Shattering Ice: Affected by Electro for 40% less time. Increases CRIT Rate against enemies that are Frozen or affected by Cryo by 15%.

Elemental Reactions

Cryo has the following Elemental Reactions:

  • Electro Superconduct: Deals AoE Cryo DMG and reduces the target's Physical DMG Resistance by -50%. The number of targets hit by Superconduct affect how much damage it does. If it hits a single enemy, it will only hit once. If the AoE of Superconduct hits 5 enemies, it will strike those 5 enemies 5 times each.
  • Hydro Frozen: Freezes the target. If the frozen target is hit by a Claymore, a Plunge Attack, or Geo DMG, it will cause Shattered. Shattering a frozen target will deal additional Physical DMG.
  • Pyro Melt: Deals ×1.5 Cryo DMG when a Cryo attack triggers the reaction.
  • Anemo Swirl: Infuses and deals Cryo DMG while spreading the effect to nearby enemies.
  • Geo Crystallize: Creates a Cryo shield.

Cryo Status

Cryo is a status effect that reduces overall character speed. While affected by the Cryo status, movement and attack speed will decrease by 15% (stacking multiplicatively).[citation needed] This is not to be confused with Sheer Cold, an environmental mechanic that is the result of the Subzero Climate.
