Cold Blooded: Cold damage dealt to chilled and frozen targets is increased by 20%.
I was just wondering if cold damage on weapons is affected by cold blooded, increasing by 20%, as well as cold damage spells. Trying to see if a +Cold damage weapon would be more beneficial to my dps then my current fire one.
I read that this passive is bugged. It increases damage by 20%, whether you are using cold damage or not. But don't take my word on it.
That's what everyone is saying, though I haven't tested it myself. The target still has to be chilled. From what I recall the only spell that will apply the cold damage from a weapon to the mob is spectral blades, every other spell already has an elemental or physical type so the damage type on a weapon does not apply. Another exception is followers, notably the scoundrel. His basic attacks will use the weapon type so if you get him a weapon with +cold damage, it will chill and slow mobs, as long as he doesn't die.
