Wow, we're going early this year! Thanks for the shop access @Hollow, it's great to be able to use the rewards on multiple chars.
Here are my suggestions:
Very similar to @Cloud and @LUPUL LUNATIC's suggestions, I talked it out with Cloud. This is just how I imagine it working, balance wise.
FO Ice Armor. Can toggle between Mounted/Dismounted, in mounted does normal attacks and in dismounted locked to ice with elecomp. Mastercraft is a skill that changes depending on whether Mounted/Dismounted. Pays mrm for a backlash toggle.
In Mounted Form, has access to an spell-based ice skill that pays damage to inflict ice elemental vulnerability, main stat (STR/DEX/INT) vs enemy DEX. Skill's damage type (melee/ranged/magic) follows weapon damage type.
In Dismounted form, has access to a spell-based fire skill that pays damage to inflict one turn of thermal shock (the dragon breathes fire on the enemy!), main stat vs enemy END. Causes a permanent background change if successful. I'm thinking like a mix-up of ice/glaciers and fire, since this is an ice dragon that's breathing fire - sort of like A Song of Ice and Fire (we are riding dragons after all.) Skill's damage type (melee/ranged/magic) follows weapon damage type. If thermal shock/fire is not thematic enough, an ice skill that inflicts freeze is good too.
Backlash Toggle: Does ice backlash status effect, player main stat (STR/DEX/INT) vs enemy DEX. Available whether mounted or dismounted as its paid for by mrm, not the MC.
Same as Cloud and Lupul, thermal shock/ice backlash toggle pet. Again, if thermal shock is too much of a stretch, then freeze/ice backlash toggle.
I agree with Cloud's ice Savage Troll Club suggestion, especially with the mounted/dismounted aspect.
I agree with Cloud and Lupul that it should be a potency shield, I just think it should give generic potency (-10 to everything for the monster). I think that's most useful with all the effects flying around (elevuln, backlash, thermal shock) and also more generically useful, as a lot more players will have shield than weapon/pet/armor.
I think it should do just ice backlash (Main stat vs enemy DEX), as high as a misc can give that effect. This is generically useful for all backlash builds and also players who use angra/EoC as booster pets/guests. Backlash potency is not as necessary, what with doomlight, paladin, and necromancer existing and my proposed shield effect giving potency to every status effect. This also fills an additional item slot for backlash characters, as right now the only backlash source from the misc zone is dragonsblood charm, which only triggers against dragons.
