Does Daze interrupt foes that are immune to hard CC like Stun, Daze, Knockdown etc, via the Defiant buff?
The Daze duration is zero, that for sure, but I know a Thief that claims that his Tactical Strike does interrupt Champions nevertheless.

And please, don't just post "Well, they are immune to hard CC so Daze will do nothing", only answer if you know for sure that the game behaves like the tooltip descriptions indicate or not.

The interrupt element of skills still works on Defiant targets, yes.

the interrupt does work with knockbacks and KDs and stun while they have the defiant boon, so I would assume daze would as well.  

When I play with my hammer warrior I see "interrupt" pop up on uses of backbreaker and earthshaker and so forth while defiant is up.

Well, in this case:

the interrupt absolutely didn't happen.

Could it be that the CC effect has to last a certain amount of time, e.g. 1+ seconds? That would explain why apparently Headshot doesn't work.

some bosses are entirely immune to it, a good example is the champion shaman at the end of the frozen maw event in wayfarer foothills.  Completely immune to all of it.

I haven't ran into that many that are entirely immune, but it is in the realm of possibility.

If I remember correctly, the boss status enemy(purple ringed) are all completely immune while they have defiant stacks, while most champions excluding the larger ones like giants can be interrupted.
