The Cryo Abyss Mage can be identified by their white color. They attack the player by launching shards of ice at them or conjuring giant icicles in mid-air and crash them into the player. While these attacks can be evaded if the player's reactions are fast enough, they can afflict the Cryo elemental state which reduces the player's movement speed, making it much more difficult to evade other attacks. When vulnerable, the Abyss Mage will commence a ritual to summon icicles that orbit around the mage while regenerating its shield.
Due to their elemental powers, the Cryo Abyss Mage will freeze water they touch or hover over. This does not protect them from drowning in deep water if Pyro attacks are used to melt the ice underneath them.
The following table describes the level scaling. Note that values may change in Co-Op, some Quests, and certain Domains (such as the Spiral Abyss). The change usually involves multiplying some of the values by a constant scale factor.
- Pyro attacks are the most effective at destroying its shield by triggering the Melt reaction.
- Electro attacks will cause Superconduct which deals AoE Cryo DMG, also dealing moderate damage to its shield.
- The Cryo Abyss Mage is immune to the Frozen reaction, even when its shield is broken.
