I'm in hardcore normal about to face Belial. My rapid fire slows enemies 80% and my passive says slowed enemies receive 15% more damage. Are those abilities useless against him?

He is immune to movement speed abilities only in his second, larger form. Before that form, such abilities will affect him, though at a shorter duration as he is a boss.

So essentially if I want the biggest bang for the buck through the whole fight I should not equip things that slow him and just go for regular mass damage? – Dave Stein May 31 '12 at 14:41
Ideally yeah. If you're talking about items exclusively though, don't worry too much about that so much as the other stats! (ie 1.3% chance to immobolize on a pair of gloves) – enche Jun 2 '12 at 0:21

He is not immune to anything, but the duration of effects is greatly reduced.
