Armor not protecting against harshest temperatures



Anyone notice how full vanir or full light won’t protect against the harshest temperature conditions now? I realize the +1 cold/heat protection stacks but in full set of vanir only gives 3-4 temp protection out of the available 5 and I still get “extremely cold” taking damage. anyone know the trick for armor to protect you from the elements after update #33?


I was experiencing the same thing, and I even have the perk that diminishes temperature effects. Not sure how to deal with the extreme environments yet myself, but you’re not alone in your question.


I’ve noticed those changes although I haven’t had the opportunity to test them out yet.
One thing comes to mind to compensate is spicy foods. Could you give that a try and let us know how it turns out?


Spicy food works along with any drink that warms you. It will prevent you from taking cold damage for a few. I don’t know if its an attempt to make cooking/brewing more necessary or what. My clan has a base in ice spire chasm so it’s a great elemental defense against raiders but it really sucks when you die and go try to recover your body.
