Cold damage will cause potions to "freeze and shatter", destroying them. Passive cold attacks (notably that of the blue jelly) will also add half the damage back to the monster's hit points, increasing the maximum hit point total if the new hit point value exceeds it; if the monster gains enough hit points from this it will divide into two such monsters. You are protected from cold attacks if you have cold resistance.

I displaced this article in writing the fuller one. I note passive attack is a stub. Perhaps this should go there- I'll ask admin to decide. --PeterGFin 13:36, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Does any amount of cold damage break all potions in inventory with 100% probability? Are potions protected in a container such as a bag of holding? DemonDoll 17:46, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
