When dealing cold damage to an enemy, what all does it slow down? I know it obviously slows down an enemies movement speed, but does it affect casting time? Or does it slow down their attacks also?

1 Answer 1


Cold damage applies a snare effect to the enemy. This effect slows them generally, so yes, it slows their attacks, casting and so forth.

I have no citation for this other than my extensive use of cold weapons and caltrops over the last 60 levels.

  • I thought so also I just didn't know if there was anything citation wise or proof wise to go with it.

  • Can someone provide a value for the slow? I am not sure if it is out there, but if you had cold damage on a weapon, how much does it slow them? Jul 12, 2012 at 12:42
