After playing a few times with the basic characters, tonight we just randomly chose any of the others. We ended up having to quit though because neither of us could figure out what "Fire Mastery" actually did. Since it is on so many of her talents it is obviously important, but the text associated with it on the flyer is not very clear. What does "Cool Off" mean? It says positive status effect, but I do not know why it is positive. Does this mean other status effects are nullified while you have one of these?
I have no doubt I am missing something simple here, but as it stands, the descriptor means nothing to me. Any deeper explanation of this is appreciated.
Fire Mastery is a token that allows abilities on her board to do more damage or to fuel cards that she might have. On its own, say if a different player transferences it would do nothing on another player besides cool off and go away.
The cooling off is important because she must keep herself running hot. So the important part of Fire mAstery, when viewed in conjunction with her board, is that it powers up abilities. And is a depleting resource that must be regained to stay "hot".
