"Frostbrand Weapon: Imbue the Shaman's weapon with frost. Each hit has a chance of causing 611.73 additional Frost damage and slowing the target's movement speed by 50% for 8 sec. Lasts 30 minutes.( Unleash Weapon : Unleashing this enchantment deals 807.43 to 938.37 Frost damage to a target enemy and reduces their movement speed by 50% for 5 sec. Increased in effectiveness if the target is already afflicted by a movement-reducing Frost effect. )"50+50 = 100So unleashing your frostband on a slowed target is the same as rooting him. Right?

He is saying that you get 50% movement reduction from white hits of a frostbranded weapon, and then you unleash it and get the other 50%, equaling 100%. Good question seems like it would make sense considering the wording of the talent, but at the same time, it seems odd to make the root work basically opposite of what frozen power does (root only between 15 and 30 yards, vs now root only when you are within melee range). I'd like to get this clarified.

From what I've heard, Mr. Clean is right. Though I'm not in the beta (as noted above BLIZZARDAREYOUREADINGTHIS?!) It's consistent with the way Blizzard does % buff/debuff stacking.
