Overview Edit

Ice Armor is a Tanker primary powerset in City of Heroes. (It was briefly a Brute secondary powerset in the City of Villains Beta, but proved to counteract Fury.)

You can dramatically reduce your core body temperature to form various armors of ice around yourself. You can protect yourself from many different damage types, and you gain exceptional resistance to cold based attacks. However, this set offers little protection to fire base powers and no protection against psionics.
