My PFS Character has an option to make 1 item (weapon or suit of armor) out of three different types of special starmetal (Noqual, Horacalcum, and Siccatite). I was thinking of a Siccatite (Cold) Haramaki. However, when I was rereading the text I came across this:
Hot siccatite can eventually ignite objects, and cold siccatite in water quickly surrounds itself with a 1-foot-thick shell of ice.
Siccatite armor deals 1 point of energy damage (fire or cold) per round to a creature wearing it, and deals 1 point of the same energy damage each full round a creature is grappled by someone wearing siccatite armor. Cold siccatite armor grants fire resistance 5, while hot siccatite armor grants cold resistance 5. (The type of armor does not alter the amount of resistance granted.) Siccatite increases the cost of a weapon by 1,000 gp and armor by 6,000 gp (regardless of the armor's type).
Is that line meant to be fluff or say if I fall into water while wearing Cold Siccatite armor my character will immediately encased in ice?
Any help would be appreciated. I don't want my character to spend a fortune only to find out it'd be useless when it came to scenarios with water in it.
My character will soon have cold resitance so I thought this would be an easy way to get fire resistance, among other things I have planned.
