    Title:
    Reproduction Rate: Ice arrow removes Chaos Bolt effects
    Blocker? No
    Details: Chaos bolt has multiple effects it can put on enemies including: fire, slow, +weapon damage, -avoid %. All of these effects are removed when ice arrow is cast on that same target. This is expected with the slow effect, however it is not expected with other effects of chaos bolt
    Steps to Reproduce:
    * Cast chaos bolt on an enemy until you get the fire damage effect
    * Cast ice arrow, watch it remove the fire damage effect

    By design. Can't stack slow effects.

    Relevant issue if it needs to come up: 37359

    Thanks

    Well Chaos Bolt has a variable effect. It will remove every effect, even if it isn't a slow effect.

    If I hit something with Chaos Bolt, and it gets the fire damage over time effect. If I hit it again with Ice Arrow, that fire damage over time effect gets removed.

    @Attenwood This is not about stacking slows. The slow effect of Chaos Bolt should be removed, but not the other effects.

    Another example of where this fails:

    * Chaos Bolt has the ability to give the target +% weapon damage (because it is chaotic and all).
    * If I am dueling someone who is using Chaos Bolt, and they give me the +% weapon damage effect, they can remove it with an Ice Arrow.
    * Why should an ice arrow remove a chaotic buff received from a Chaos Bolt?

    Another example of where this fails:

    * Chaos bolt has the ability to give the caster -50% avoidance.
    * If I am dueling someone who is using Chaos Bolt and they have this effect on them, an ice arrow will remove it.
    * I shouldn't have to avoid using ice arrow to take advantage of these chaotic effects.

    for the points brought up by Kor, i think this needs to be looked at. you cant clump them all up together, the different debuffs need to get categories of their own, i know its a lot of work, but you cant leave chaos bolt the way it is. ice arrow should only overwrite if the chaos bolt applied a slow, same with the other types of debuffs from chaos bolt.

    if anything, let them stack but not cumulatively, that would solve everything, even future abilities/glyphs that could come into play
