Frostbitten Core Set
This set is high cavalry attack, high defense debuff.
When attacking with Frostbitten, you ALWAYS send Cavalry Troops, as all boosts are tuned to improve cavalry attack stats.
Please note: All Skills/Gems listed below are for hitting Strongholds with their hero at home. Alternate configurations are more appropriate for hitting a Stronghold with their hero marching, in prison or in the Wonder.

Frostbitten Core Set Special Set Bonuses:
Try to reset to one of these bonuses, or a combination of the two. Testing indicates that TROOP DEFENSE DEBUFF produces best results, but RANGED TROOP DEFENSE DEBUFF is highly effective as well (and seems to be more common).
