There are six Cold Guard Combat Arts available to Spheromancers: two first-level, two second-level, and two third-level arts.

Frozen Stance[edit | edit source]

Frozen Stance is a Cold-elemental, level one Guard-type Combat Art. It costs 1 CP to activate and 1 SP to use.

When using it, Lea creates a small arc of frost in front of her and holds up her guard. If she is hit within a short duration of using the art, she perfectly guards the attack, mitigating all damage it would've done, and counters it with a cold strike which slows down the attacker for a few seconds.

Frozen Stance is great against enemies with predictable and slow attacks that deal large damage, such as Bosses. The slow it provides gives valuable time to beat down the enemy, making it especially useful against quick-moving foes. It is generally also very useful for players who struggle with perfect guarding, as it gives a much larger time window for the perfect guard to occur.

Brisk Barrier[edit | edit source]

Brisk Barrier is a Cold-elemental, level one Melee-type Combat Art. It costs 1 CP to activate and 1 SP to use.

When using this art, Lea knocks back enemies and creates an arc of icicles in front of her. These icicles block projectiles and enemy movement, causing enemies to take damage on contact and destroying the icicle. The initial impact increases the Chill status meter of hit enemies.

Brisk Barrier can create some much needed space between the player and enemies. The icicles can be used to block powerful projectile attacks.

Freeze Frame[edit | edit source]

Freeze Frame is a Cold-elemental, level two Guard-type Combat Art. It costs 2 CP to activate and 3 SP to use.

Upon using it, Lea creates a small arc of frost in front of her and holds up her guard. If she is hit within a short duration of using the art, she perfectly guards the attack, mitigating all damage it would've done, and completely freezes the attacker for a few seconds, also increasing its Chill status meter. After the freeze ends, the victim takes a bit of damage and is Chilled again.

The same strategies Frozen Stance has also apply to Freeze Frame. The primary function of the ability is still the same, it is just more powerful.

Icy Bastion[edit | edit source]

Icy Bastion is a Cold-elemental, level two Guard-type Combat Art. It costs 2 CP to activate and 3 SP to use.

When using this art, Lea creates icicles all around her. These icicles block projectiles and enemy movement, causing enemies to take damage on contact and destroying the icicle. Additionally, she gains a protective shield which slows her down, damaging enemies on contact.

This art makes it very hard for enemies to attack Lea. When used in the middle of opponents, it can allow her to take on a smaller number of foes at a time while also damaging them as they attack her.

Crystal Keeper[edit | edit source]

Crystal Keeper is a Cold-elemental, level three Guard-type Combat Art. It costs 3 CP to activate and 6 SP to use.
