Defrost
« on: January 03, 2019, 07:17:55 PM »
The current version of the Codex says this of "Defrost":

'this is a trait of flame attacks. It will be defined in a future expansion of the game in which frost damage is introduced.'

We now have Frost damage, but the Elementalist's little rulebook says nothing about Defrost.

Burn tokens and Freeze tokens cancel each other out, but flame attacks do not necessarily cause a Burn, so that can't be it.

Have I missed a memo somewhere that explains Defrost?

What I remember from discussions is that Defrost works like Extinguish and is a characteristic of ALL fire attacks (whether they say defrost or not) Therefore, fire attacks would roll one less die and have a -1 to effect for each Freeze condition on the target. I do not recall an official statement of the above discussion.
