Once you reach Shattering Pressure level 4, his enhanced Skill will be performed automatically.

Although Shattering Pressure will deal Cryo DMG at level 0 and a mix of Cryo and Physical DMG if used on levels 1 to 3, its level 4 variant will deal only Physical DMG. Pressurized Floe will have a cooldown of 10 seconds.

Freminet Elemental Burst

His Elemental Skill, Shadowhunter’s Ambush. will allow Freminet to perform a slash dealing Aoe Cryo DMG. The slash will both reset the cooldown of his Elemental Ekill and allow him to enter Stalker Mode. Once in the mode, he will don his diving helmet.

While in Stalker mode, Freminet will have his resistance to interruption increased, and the cooldown of Pressurized Floe will be further decreased by 70%. Stalker mode will also enhance the damage of the Cryo slashes created by Pers Time by 200% and will allow him to generate one extra stack per attack. Shadowhunter’s Ambush will have a cooldown of 15 seconds.
