rimeheart+black ice interaction

Wizard
if something shatters via rimeheart while channeling BI, e.g. through frosties proc, will it leave black ice explosion? i dont have a rimeheart to test. if it does, rimeheart+frosties +black ice+winter flurry make a viable t6-stomping build?
Yes it works like that, just tested on PTR. Bare in mind that chance to proc rimeheart effect is very low with RoF, 10x 0.333, thats ~3% to proc.
RoF ticks very often. the proc rate per attack is around 1. (I believe RoF has a tickrate of 3). so you have ~10% per 0.7 seconds if you have no +aspd and a 1.4 aspd weapon.
RoF is speed coeff 2 and .5 proc rate. Still should work better than glacial spike (.93 and extras from mirrorball don't proc).

extras from mirrorball don't proc

They do as of the latest ptr build.

If Black Ice stacks (I think they do), this might actually be a really good build! can't wait to try it out. If only I had a good pair of frostburns..
I tried it a bit more, the problem seems to be that black ice patches are killing mobs faster than rimeheart have a chance to proc. Tested on T6.
