NameShow Full Descriptions
Lesser Multiple Projectiles SupportIncreases the amount of projectiles Freezing Pulse casts, allowing it to hit more targets at once. At later levels, obtain the Greater Multiple Projectiles Support gem to hit enemies in a larger area.
Cold Penetration SupportReduces enemy resistance to cold damage, making them take more cold damage from Freezing Pulse.
Controlled Destruction SupportGrants more spell damage to Freezing Pulse but reduces critical strike chance. The more spell damage provided by this support allows a direct and stable increase in damage not contingent on critical strikes.
Faster Projectiles SupportIncreases Freezing Pulse's projectile speed, increasing the maximum distance that the projectiles travel. This allows Freezing Pulse to hit targets further away.
Spell Echo SupportRepeats Freezing Pulse an additional time while also greatly increasing the cast speed.
Added Cold Damage SupportIncreases the amount of flat cold damage your Freezing Pulse does.

Freezing Pulse

FreezingPulseFreezing Pulse is a spell skill which launches a dissipating projectile that deals cold damage and pierces all targes. The projectile has an extra chance to freeze which is lost over a short distance.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Fork and Chain: Freezing Pulse projectiles will always pierce, and therefore can never fork or chain.

    • However, if Divergent Freezing Pulse is used, the skill becomes unable to pierce, allowing it to benefit from Chain and Fork.
  • Chance to freeze: The Freezing Pulse projectile inherently has a 25% chance to freeze when created. The extra chance to freeze decreases in a linear fashion over a quarter of the projectile's lifetime until it becomes 0%. This does not affect other sources of freeze chance, such as critical strikes.

  • Projectile speed: The projectiles move at an average speed of approximately 165 units/sec, for 0.375 seconds, making their effective range at approximately 60 units.[1] Modifiers to projectile speed cause the projectiles to travel farther before they dissipate, effectively increasing their range. Freezing Pulse modified by projectile speed will cause more damage and have a better chance to freeze at every point along its trajectory than a slower Freezing Pulse projectile would, because the chance to freeze is based on the lifetime elapsed of the projectiles (and not distance traveled). Thus, a faster projectile has had less time to dissipate and has a longer maximum range and therefore a higher chance to freeze than a slower projectile. This is true at all points along the projectile's path, while the chance to freeze is greater than zero.
