The special affix is useful for some melee builds that rely on movement (Whirlwind Barbarians or Explosive Blast Wizards), but traditional builds will have little use for it, as most skills may not be used on the move. One might also want to have a healthy stacking of Crowd Control status effect reduction stat on other items, to minimize the amount of time spent Immobilized. These pants are most effective with pet or damage over time builds. Any source of movement will count, including charging skills (like Dashing Strike), and even flying away from Knockback.
All four effects (buffs / debuffs to damage and resource generation) are multiplicative to other similar modifiers. However, it does show up on the character screen.
For channeled skills that force movement, coupling this item with Mantle of Channeling may yield positive results.

Hexing Pants of Mr. Yan
- 102–131 Armor
These pants were part of an elaborate outfit worn by the infamous (and surprisingly stylish) enchanter Mr. Yan while adventuring in Westmarch. Lacking patience, and impulse control, Mr. Yan was always rushing headlong into danger — not a recipe for survival for a spell caster. Being a clever man, though, Mr. Yan designed this garment to turn his weakness into a strength.
