Freeze Wiz and Fury Generation

I noticed that when I play with a freeze wiz, I find it harder than usual to generate fury, especially when starting from empty.

Are my observations correct?

Yep CC has some kind of side effect that gimps ITF (crits). I noticed the same issue in solo play due to a buriza scoundrel, mostly against single targets using a no generator WW/RLTW/Rend build with a Skorn. Even a DW Barb like you noticed this.

It´s like the monster was taken out of the game or its hitbox is smaller or whatever. I´m not sure what actually happens and why. One of the few mysteries in the game that I haven´t figured out.

OMG. We're in trouble now! :-)

But seriously, I did a few uber runs with a freeze wiz and since I don't use a fury generator, It was so difficult to generate fury when we were fighting elites, even if I was using Superstition.

I think ww barbs rely on generating fury from taking damage a lot more than they realize and when they aren't getting struck at all due to freeze (or stun, play with a thunderstrike hota guy, it will be similar)...

damage taken to regen of fury is very powerful and is often overlooked.

Thats what I always assumed it to be.

Very interesting. I always thought that it was just the fact that I wasn't taking much damage. I played with a cm wizard for a long time, and its partly why I moved away from ww. The fury generation always felt really odd through frozen mobs. It feels odd with HotA too, but hitting multiple targets sort of helps.

Fury generation from taking damage is indeed underestimated, this is surely a contributing factor if not the whole explanation.
