    Cannot be Frozen.... Lies????

    I'm wearing a Ravenfrost with the CBF mod.

    Yet on occasion, Nihlathak or even a Champion/Super-Unique will turn me blue and slow down my arm speed to the equivalent of a firm spanking.

    What's the point of a mod if it doesn't work?

    CBF will not protect from the slowing effects of the Holy Freeze aura. You were probably slowed down because Nihlathak or some boss had that aura.

    The first time I faced up against Duriel when I started playing Diablo2 I had the same reaction as you.I was using Death sash which has cbf and was like wtf am I frozen.
    I get it all the time when running Travi council, magic finding, wearing a raven frost.
    Best tactic is to take out the monster with holy freeze aura first.

    There are four ways an opponent can slow down the action of your character:

    1) Attack with cold dmg
    2) Holy Freeze aura
    3) Decrepify curse
    4) Attack with weapons with the mod "Slow target by X%"

    If your char got hit by attack type 1,2 and 4 he/she will become blue and get slowed. The "Cannot be frozen" mod provide protection against attack type 1 only. Yet, it's such an important mod to have that almost every melee char build you can find recommend one ravenfrost ring at least.
