Diablo® III

Crowd Control gear

Hi guys,

Show me your best CC gear. I'm using 4,1% chance to chill Vile Ward and I want to see what you guys are using. (WH with freeze??)

Have a nice day!

Isn't Shuriken Cloud physical damage? That would mean the snare wouldn't be applied as it's not weapon damage.

That's correct, all the Chakram runes are elemental in some way and cannot proc the cold damage.

My favorite CC gears are my cold SoJ and 846 DPS 1 OS Nat's Slayer.

I'm envious of Drittz's freeze WH. ;)

KB from WF :D :D

I'm always wearing a "freezing hour" belt. Best belt to have, hands down. Roll the all res in other slots :P

I've got a nice pair of stun zuni boots with 180 dex 3.7 immobilize i think it is? in stash for when I like to mix it up. Again, I believe in roll the allres in a different slot. But haven't used em in a while tho... lol.

Also a chilly vile ward, but no vit roll like yours. Those are nice.

Almost always wearing a nats helm with the fear. Love that also, got hooked on it and it fits a ranged character quite nicely. Fear/kb and BOL = profit.

My scoundrel rocks a "freeze force" and cold damage tals ammy. He's a machine for crowd control and always a pleasure to switch CTW on for. But when I'm playin solo i'm just one shotting everything for speed so he just picks off the strays as i'm boosting around.. Wish we could bring follower with us in group play.

@Pat you have a very solid DH build, I love the possibilities you have open with out having SP in the build. Quite a beauty ammy too. I can see that thing shining for when ROS hits.

It doesn't work unfortunately, Trail of Cinders is fire damage not weapon damage.

this is how cold soj's work:

btw the chill on shoulders is the same effect as Cold damage but it applies on every shot instead of based on a proc rate. Personally my favorite CC is Multishot - Suppression Fire and Prep - Punishment with a cold SoJ, perma chill on massive groups :)

LOL!

opps.... ye chains of torment does proc the cold damage really well, the chains do a small bit of aoe so they can chill decent size groups if you use them well.

chrizzle's got a lot of info on using the skill here:

I will need to try it!

The beauty of CoT is that it's WEAPON DAMAGE.

So if you want cool enemy death animations. Try it with it ;)

Also, I'd like to say that it can proc EVERYTHING that you can proc EXCEPT critical hits, so no Night Stalker procs too.

It can proc everything, from Bleed to Freeze from weapons(Azure). It can proc all sorts of crowd control too.

SoJ takes into effect too and is a nice boost when fighting elites.

Played with that with CoT and my Spike Trap M4D. They were literally not moving :3 Not to mention the Immobilize from Boots and Freeze from Inna and Stun from Gloves >_>

Might sound noobish but what exactly does crowd control do and how does it benefit a DH?

Freezing, slowing, stunning, etc. Anything that "controls" the monsters (crowd.)
