how come cold soj doesnt slow ?

Brawling
been testing out cold damage sojs and they dont seem to slow players down ?
I think it has to do with non-elemental skills or Weapon Damage % skills. Like for example a Cold Soj will slow with HOTA but will not slow with Disintegrate because it is Arcane.
If a spell reads that it does "weapon damage" then the cold will apply. Physical damage spells are considered elemental damage so don't be fooled, the cold does not work for them either.

If you are testing out cold sojs on a WD then you are out of luck as WDs have no spells that do weapon damage.
A SoJ makes 6% of the black damage from your weapon. But it does slow a bit. It works with impale, for example.

Impale is weapon damage, so it works with the cold damage effect. Rapid Fire, however, is physical damage and does not work with the cold damage effect.
aww makes sense now wds dont really have a good attack or any for that matter in pvp that does only weapon damge thanx for the info guys glad i only spent 2 million on my soj for hc dueling.
