    Does holy freeze and cannot be frozen affect WW?

    I'm getting ready to make my first barb and would appreciate any help given. I was wondering, if I don't have "cannot be frozen" on, does it affect ww if I were to be "frozen". To take it further, I was wondering if holy freeze affects ww as well. Basically,is it a bad idea to scatch the idea of using "cannot be frozen" altogether?

    I think it only effects your movement while ww'ing, not ww attack speed. Don't know 100%.

    Holy Freeze ignores any CBF gear you have. So while you may not freeze from being Ice Blasted, you will still freeze under a Holy Freeze. This freeze is treated like any other freeze, so you do slow down, attack slower, etc, but no amount of CBF can help you.

    Sorry for the confusion. What i really need to know. If i don't wear CBF, will my ww attack speed be affected? Scatch holy freeze, I figured that out for myself. I'm just talking about plain cold damage which would normally slow you. I know I will be slowed, but does it affect the speed of my attack? If it doesn't I dont really see a point in wearing a CBF. This is for pk purposes only, by the way.

    Being frozen slows down the speed at which WW travels, but NOT the attack rate. So, being frozen actually helps WW, the only bad thing about it is a slower run/walk speed, but that's not neccessarily a problem if you have teleport and a 10 frame cast.

    It seems to act like a slowed missile sorceress casting frozen orb. It help her in some way because in one same cast you can fill the entire screen with ice shards. A WW barbarian will travel slower but still hit at same speed, so every monster at range will get hit much more.

    HF should slow down WW or else I can't see the point in why PvB smiters would first slow the barb with holy freeze for afterwards shift smiting with fana on??

    Lets say holy freeze slows down by 50%=>

    Barb still attacks at 4 fpa:No incrs/decrs effect on ww attack speed.=>

    WW movement speed slowed by 50%=>

    Pala stays in barb's ww range for 50% longer=>

    50% more hit opportunities=>

    If the baba is good(gear),& whirls away & uses hold down whirling, what puma says will happen.

    umm I was sure I had read about it in a guide in here somewhere, but I can't find it :-\
    well after what I remember the main trick was to first slow the barb with HF, then take fana on, and start shift smiting (all this while the barb is in WW), and it worked great in 1.09 ^^
    maybe because the pala also got more hits in, and higher leech with the leech curse?
