    He has the Holy Freeze aura, you aren't technically frozen, you are just slowed.

    isnt that kinda contradicting itself?

    im just curious about that.

    holy freeze arua, but im not technically frozen?

    Freeze: to become hardened into ice or into a solid body.

    Frozen: to become hardened into ice or into a solid body.

    (from the dictionary)

    Unfortunately the game code doesn't respect arguments based on symantics. The slowing effect of Holy Freeze ignores the 'Cannot be Frozen' attribute. It can work for you if you are a frostzealot or hire a Holy Freeze merc.

    Also, someone correct me if I'm wrong, with the CBF mod you will be less slow as you aren't being slowed down by the cold portion of the Holy Freeze aura, so you will be getting some benefit from it.

    Yes the big bug in the maggot lair is resistant to ice and I just killed him with my shape druid with a holy freeze merc. And the bug was frozen.

    I guess it's just one of those things I shouldn't worry about. Thanks for making it a little more clearer. :thumbsup:

    This is (I think) also true as the HF aura hits you with cold damage periodically. So if you have no CBF you get slowed by the aura it self, but also get hit by cold (normally freezing you).

    Haha, I really like the way you jotted down your 'observations' on the first pic. :laugh:

    --Me! Barbarian! Cannot be frozen!?! That's good stuff...

    Back on topic: Don't worry cause Duriel is the only boss that can do that to you. Just gulp 5 Thawing potions before you go into fight him, and some for the Merc is good too.
