-% Target Defense from items is only 50% effective.
-% Defense from Cloak of Shadows does not apply.
Slow Missiles does not apply.
Only minions can be frozen: bosses can only be chilled.
Stun length does not apply.
AI cannot be altered directly, although that of any minions can.
Life lost to Crushing Blow is halved (so 1/8 current base life when applied by a melee attack and 1/16 when applied by a ranged attack, modified by Damage Resist %).
