Ok, so I have heard conflicting things from many different sources about the interaction between Blizzard (applies a chill effect) and the Cold-Blooded Rune (applies 20% more cold damage to chilled targets).
My question is, how exactly do they work together? If Blizzard is my only Cold skill, will it get 20% increased damage from Cold-Blooded? Will every tick get the bonus, or will the 1st tick apply the chill effect and all ticks after that get the 20% bonus, but not the first?
Was curious about this myself, so I tested and confirmed that it indeed, does.
Using only Blizzard on a few packs (of the same mob type) in a2 without cold blooded and noted the most common tick occurring was for 4145. I then preformed the same test with cold blooded selected; this time I noticed that Blizzard was no longer ticking at all for 4145 and the most common tick occurring was now for 4974.
Voila: 4145 * 1.2 = 4974
Tested further on a couple other mob types and higher tick values and it was all consistent with a +20% damage gain. I had trouble trying to confirm the if the first tick incurred a bonus as well, but I figure if you're only hitting mobs with 1 tick of Blizzard, a +20% bonus is pretty irrelevant.
