Last time I used it, it hit for about half a mil and killed grouped packs of trash mobs. But I haven’t played for a long time now, and I can’t really test anything since my controller is busted, so if anyone wants to post video or screenshots of the skill that would be helpful.
I suggest it as a 1 point skill, although I personally prefer it at 5 anyway. Honestly, Willy has enough “eh” skills that you can afford to move some points around in builds to pick up things like Divert Power. Besides, I’m trying not to factor in COMs for this.
I’ll be sure to put that caveat when I get to the skill. [quote=“johnrr6, post:8, topic:1553346, full:true”]
Cold War…One star. Not worth the points. It doesn’t stack well enough onto existing, good, freeze/kill combos or the Chronicleer of Elips. Why waste the points? It looks good at first glance but the actual math does not increase chance of freezing very much. It is a tiny boost…very tiny. In the tenths of a percent IIRC.
That’s a bit harsh of a rating. It still works wonderfully with shock grenades, the thunderfire, and VC. All 3 might not be a given, but getting free freezes from even one of those sources is a good move. Willy is extremely crit dependent, so anything that can bump up his crit damage (like cryo) is worth an investment.
