Individuals hit by a Frostbite attack will show a brief shimmering blue aura around them, like the Chilled effect.
The abilities icons of a Frostbitten hero are framed by crystal icy layer to warn you that the use of any special attack causes 20% damage of the Hero's max health.
Heroes should be careful when attacking enemies that can apply Frostbite by their skin, or do revenge attacks because the damage of the debuff is applied retroactively. For example, a hero not Frostbitten uses their special attack. During the attack, the Frostbite debuff is applied. In consequences, the hero will suffer damage equal 20% of their max health.
A with Frostbite debuffed target will die after the use of any special attack when it has less than 20% health. Shields like Aegis Shield can soak the damage and save the debuffed hero.
