Cold damaged always slow enemies even if done by your scoundrel.

Does that means scoundrel's attack, with Buriza, will have 100% chill rate? Buriza is a cold damage weapon.

Will that synchronize with wizard talent that increase damage against frozen or chilled enemies?

A popular build nowaday is to buy Buriza for scoundrel. Many said that they want those with high freeze rate to synchronize with cold blood.

However, if Buriza will chill 100% then it's not much of an issue?

Yes I know that cold damage slow enemies. However, does it "chill" the enemies? Will it proc cold blood? That is the essence of the question.

  • Isn't this exactly like your other question? And if you're really asking if cold weapons apply a chill effect, you have the question @JamesJiao linked, and this one.

  • Slowed and chilled are 2 possibly different things. If cold weapons apply 100% chill effect, it would have show up that way in auction house.

All damage from cold sources apply a chill effect. The reason why you would want a buriza on a scoundrel is not for the freeze effect (which is quite handy), but because it can potentially pierce to hit multiple targets in a pack.

This will definately proc cold blooded, as will any cold damage source. Just keep in mind that the duration of the chill may be different on uniques as its considered a source of CC.

  • source? What's your source
