You use it to annoy other people :)

Its the Breen Grief grenade.

It causes more forum drama.


Heh.

Seriously, though, it is an item that you can lob at friends (and friendly NPCs) to 'freeze' them. Some people have said that it does actually stops their character from moving, but a dev has said that it's supposed to only be a cosmetic effect and not an actual one. (He posted saying they will change it if it does actually cause people to freeze for real.)

I think it's a fun item to play around with, but that's just my opinion. :)

yeah, but.....
 
I don't like to because you can't use it on enemies, or at least I can't when ever I trry to use it in a ground combat situation, it only freezes me and a few of my ground team no effect on the enemy.

It wil help stop people from dancing on the Dabo tables, but other than that, who have it?

I have a question, and maybe a fleet can try this out, does buffing with a cryo tribble reduce the dampener's effect? The cryo tribble is supposed to give you a cold resistance.

Since it has no attribute and does no dmg... no not really.

It does freeze you in place for a few seconds and you can't use it on missions, it's kind of a throw away item if you ask me.

IMO it would be much better if it could be used on targets during missions :rolleyes:

A remarkably bad idea. An item that does nothing but annoy people. Oh well.
