Does only Frozen Mallet trigger, or will Frozen mallet and Trinity's slows both take effect?

I've never learned this.

Only Frozen Mallet will trigger. It's the exact same effect. The only difference is that Trinity only has a chance to apply it, while FM will always apply it.

no, will I get permanent 40% with a chance at an additional slow, or will the additional trinity slow just never proc?

No, it stacks with diminishing returns. They're only the same affect if it's the same item OR it's season 3 OR it specifically says it doesn't stack with x.

So if I have trinity + FM I will get permanent slows with a chance at a super slow

This matters because in S3 there are so few good items for bruisers I'm considering adding FH to my build for some health jacking (and 30 damage isn't the worst.)

Google Frozen Mallet Triforce diminishing returns.

Basically, and I don't remember the numbers, if Fromallet gives 40% and you also have Triforce with 35%, it'll go 40% +a small percentage of 35%.

In the new PBE Patch, they have the same Unique Passive name, which means they do not stack. If you were to buy both of them, I believe you'll only have the effect of the first one you bought.
