Under normal circumstances Trick of the Light SUCKS!!! Because it does more harm to Zane (i.e., slows him down) than it does damage to enemies because as you rightly pointed out, Zane is always targeted. That said, there is 1 reason it’s to the advantage of this build.
The self application of cryo from Trick of the Light, which is normally a annoyance, is actually a benefit when wearing an Antifreeze com because in the Oct 8 patch GBX tweaked the com such that it gives Zane 100% increased movement speed while he is affected by cryo. This movement speed boost helps us in 2 ways:
- Increased damage due to Violent Momentum and Fugitive.
- Increased sprint speed to move around the map faster and to cover ground more quickly between zones.
