1.04 Frostburn gauntlets bugged

Tested this out again last night and it still has zero effect on Blizzard and Frost Hydra.

Hope it gets fixed soon! I want to be a powerful cold sorcerer again!

I am not seeing a bonus to my damage while using these. Could we please get a confirmation or denial fromm someone in official capacity that these items are working as expected?

Yep, just a yay or nay would do the trick...

I'm hoping that them keeping quiet is their way of saying "we're investigating".

Tested as well, 30% does not apply, hope they fix it, but judging by the lack of blue interest on the bug forums.. i doubt it.

Hey guys!

Wanted to make sure I had all my information correct before posting. Yes, the "Cold skills deal x% more damage" affix is not applying properly on the Frostburn Gauntlets. We should have this fixed for our next patch.

Thank you so much!!! :-) Very glad to hear this.

Does this also apply to Magefist, Fragment of Destiny, Schaefer's Hammer, Burning Axe of Zunimakis and Maximus?

I've noticed that Fragment of Destiny is also not really working and there had been other posts on the other items.

We have official confirmation now, what I'm interested to know is if this bug extends to Fragment of Destiny, etc.

I tested Fragment of Destiny, Magefist and Schaefer's Hammer again tonight with seperate Fire and Lightning Skills. I'm fairly certain these are bugged too.

It's sucky to have to wait for an entire patch for the fix, another few weeks at least before this will become playable.

I really hope they investigate this fully with all runes dealing cold damage (eg. Ice Armors too). In addition Magefist/Fragment of Destiny/Schaefer's Hammer are bugging too on at least Hydra, DoT spells, Familiar Runes, etc.

I can't believe it made it past QA as it is so fundamental.

Will this fix affect the Fragment of Destiny wand that have the exact same issue?

my first legendary in 1.04 and its broken. all i have to say is the "fix" better be retroactive such as how the increased attack speed mechanic was "fixed."

I hope they look into the bug with Fragment of Destiny and Magefist. They definitely don't work with Hydra runes, Blizzard, etc either.

So many great, yet unusable items now.

So do all of these elemental skill damage items just not work?

Anyone know if this has been fixed yet on PTR 1.0.5?

I don't see any mention in the patch notes or the known issues log.

Please fix them for the DH as well.

Frostburn Gauntlets, and all other Legendary items with similar affixes, are fixed in 1.0.5. This was a total fix to the "+X damage to X elemental type" affixes.

I'll talk to Community to get this added to the patch notes.

NOTE: This bug fix will apply immediately to all existing Legendaries. It will not require new Legendaries to roll.
