Sheer Cold Effects
- The Sheer Cold status will accumulate rapidly in Subzero Climate.
- Characters will quickly lose HP once the Sheer Cold Meter reaches its limit.
- Some gadgets will be unusable in this climate.
- Certain actions and environments will increase the rate at which Sheer Cold accumulates.

Pyro Seelies




Be sure to keep warm while exploring the harsh cold by ocassionally staying close to sources of warmth! This will help slow down the Sheer Cold effect, and allow you to explore much longer.

Note that the Statue of the Seven and Teleport Waypoints can also be a source of warmth in Dragonspine!
