What exactly is Chilled in Diablo 3? Does cold damage chilled 100%?



  • 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.



  • 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.
