Cryo Hypostasis
Required Resin 40
Adventurer Handbook Description
Code name: Daleth. A high-purity Cryo entity. Research suggests that there are subtle differences between elemental hypostases and other elemental life forms in terms of their physical composition. Perhaps these differences can account for their high level of homeostasis and their almost mechanical movements.

Hit the Frostfruits to Break the Cryo Shield

Use Heat Sources to Prevent Sheer Cold
