So it isn’t the Ultimate chill talent. From what I found out it’s the Punishing Storm talent. The one where it “Increases damage by 10% for each enemy in Ice Storm.”

Would love it if this was fixed. My whole playstyle was based off the Ice gauntlet’s Ice Storm and swapping my weapons. It works when you do not take that talent, not sure if this was a bug or was supposed to be put in like this.

Nonetheless, it’s Punishing Storm not Ultimate Chill.

yes please fix this annoying bug ! it’s game breaking.

Same issue, this makes you take 4 active skills instead of 3 with full passives in some builds. Please fix!

Same issue. This occurs when you cast Ice Storm with the Punishing Storm perk and then switch weapons. You can immediately see the Ice Storm dissipate and it no longer does damage.

Please fix this.

Ice Storm Bug with the last passive skill.

This was reported by myself and several others in the beta, not sure why this hasn’t been fixed yet but adding some support to this thread too in hopes it gets picked up by the devs.

Huh…I just recently got the last passive for ice storm and I started to notice this as well. I knew something was different then before and didn’t test it. But I knew I felt something was different. So, I can 100% agree since having this passive when you switch weapons ice storm goes away while without the passive it stay when switching weapons.
