Yes, insect builds could be a thing. I felt like bee swarms should be included for this. As for conjurations, are they zone exclusive? Do u have to destroy your opponent's zone exclusive conjuration b4 u play your own since Academy is essentially a single zone.

We heard about thw druid but what about the elementalist? What FROST SPELLS can we look forward to using

Bee swarms ARE going to be the next big thing. Swarms make 1 attack for every hit point they have. Swarms only lose 1 hit point per attack unless it's a zone attack. Swarms have finite life. Bees have 3 life. Bees roll 1 attack die that's automatically critical damage. Bees fly. In short? Bees roll 3 crit dice and will eat zombies for breakfast.

None of the conjurattions are zone exclusive. I will try to get off my slacker butt and go buy Elemantalist today.

If I could I would buy both first chance I had. I'm stuck waiting on official release date. Is there a way to pre-order? I want to get both packs as soon as they drop.

Freeze:
A creature with Freeze conditions rolls 1 less die on non-spell attacks. At the end of a creature's activation, remove one Freeze condition if possible. Each Freeze condition on a living creature is also considered 2 damage that cannot be healed. If there are ever Freeze conditions on an object with Burn conditions, remove 1 of each. Repeat this process until there are only Freeze or Burn markets remaining. This is a frost condition and has a removal cost of 2. In Arena, Freeze also grants the Lumbering trait to the affected creature.

Freeze = lumbering. Fair enough, slow or restrain might be too strong for this condition considering it counts as 2 damage. So freeze is like a lesser taint condition, because it is easier to remove freeze but its added effect of lumbering gives it something to set it apart.
Any extra effect on flying creatures? In Pokemon flying type is weak against ice type attacks. Would be interesting to see if freeze could remove flight.

Just like there is an enchantment to prevent burn removal, adremalech's touch; I wonder if we will see a freeze removal prevention enchantment (permafrost).
On that note, there is an incantation which damages a target based on the number of burns they have on them. Combustion has you roll 2x dice where x= number of burns on the target, then u remove all the burns. Could we see some sort of incantation of this nature but for frost/freeze. I would call it frostbite.

It should be noted, every single attack spell that does freeze puts two on at a time. It is this possible for a Siren to put 12 damage on with Naiya's help.

For whatever reason my phone sucks at posting pictures on here. I will say the there's a new Terrain. It's in Elementalist. 1 Dark 1 Fire. Puts one burn on every object in its zone that doesn't already have one during upkeep. It can be beat down though. Don't remember exact life but it's not much.

Amazing :)

Frost really is out  ;D

So are there any Elementalist stat card/mage card for arena?
I think i heard a rumor, maybe it was just a dream.

Looks like there is many interesting new cards.

In particular the “potions”, the owl and the new magma terrain.

I wonder if archers in dense fog are supposed to do ranged attacks to other zones.

I completely forgot to ask but someone hinted to the answer to my question. What school of magic are frost spells? I would guess Air and Water combo but it could be just Water school. This would give the Siren a whole lot more options assuming frost spells can hit flying creatures. Running frost to cover the fact that hydro attacks cant hit flying creatures.
