I don’t know how many builds I see when people just run Cryo Lucians or Arctic Night Hawkins.
To be effective in a CCC Build, all you need are 2 skills:
- Brain Freeze- Crits slow and eventually freeze enemies.
- Calm, Cool, Collected- upon Freezing enemies, your shields recharge, if they’re full, your Health recharges, if you shields and health are full, skill Duration/Cool Down are refreshed.
Something else that really helps is a Ice Breaker Artifact that increases your damage to frozen targets by +35%.
The biggest reason that people struggle with CCC builds is because the try to lean on pure Cryo damage to freeze enemies when all you need to is
hit those headshots and Brain Freeze will do the rest.
Match Weaknesses people, have fire for flesh, Shock for shields. You can use Cryo for Armor if you want but the STNL Annointment will more than cover that.
I personally run a Fire Lucians call with the Cryo Annointment, this let’s me deal with Flesh AND Armor effectively. I run a Brainstormer to melt shields. Everything is covered so when an Annointed dude pops up I’m not screwed.
In the end, do what you want, but I hope I’ll see less people trying to go into their menus in Slaughter Shaft and die because they ONLY run Cryo.
P.S. Cryo Hex is great for freezing as well, I personally run a Ghast Call, but you do you.
