<DIV>How does the trait/ability spell Omannus' Freezing Haze compare to Keening Haze?  I know Keening caps a bit higher but I'm debating as to whether it is worthwhile to upgrade Keeing to Adept 1 if I already have Omannus'.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Anyone know the details?  Keening costs 42 power vs. 20 for Omannus' so I'm guessing Keening is a better slow.  They are both orange at 24.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Thx,</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>RicoRanger</DIV>

The only slows I have seen people parse have weighed in at about 15%.I haven't seen any extensive testing of many different slows though at different spell upgrade levels though so sorry can't answer.

<DIV>I would stick with Keening Haze.  You get the slow plus the offensive debuff, which helps a lot.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Coren</DIV> <DIV>28 Mystic</DIV>
