I bet many of u are pissed off this season when dieing in a vortex+beam from some rbg heroes that do 3s just like i did.I qued some 3v3 yday as rmp and i faced mage boomer disc and eventho we control the whole game the time comes where our priest gets beamed+ vortex and dies in it.
Even if we reset perfectly and avoid druids 1 shot we still manage to eventually die cuz of the beam.
So after the games ended, i thought of a good change they should do to beam to be how it should be, and not a 10 second silence.
Lets say a boomer beams u, u get a debuff that silences u for 4 seconds which u can trinket , and if u get hit on cast with it , u get csed to 8 seconds .This way it will be more like an aoe cs that u have to fake and trinket in order not to die.
I felt like posting this cuz i wanted to see the people's opinions about this.

It needs changed for sure, maybe rather fixed or tuned - not sure about "faking beam" although it's possible, it's more about having SOME counter to it.  For example, last season I played plastician and rooftrellen playing some gay shit, except they had a rdruid, ehtox maybe it was for sure gay shit for lawlz probably but it basically fucked resto shamans.

Dance cheap, vortex beam.  If I trinketed cheap I would get pulled back in.  Aight no worries.  JK it was cheap, vortex beam, AFTER I ran out the rdruid vortex'd.

So trinket cheap, run out, gripped back in, run out, gripped back in, lawlz kidney shot.

I realize this is a fucking retarded scenario but it was more an example of how stupid the mechanic is to basically put you in an 8 second hex that doesn't break on damage.  Even without two vortex you can be stunned, sit it, vortex beamed, run out pulled into DR'd stun.

Just make it trinketable and it will be fine... and ofc make it DR with silences but its annoying getting beam > full cs

Remove vortex and we will be more than fine? Give us a few more escapes vs. melee's.

it doesnt make any sense if u say just be trinketable , its a beam that covers some space in arena that ur silenced if ur inside.

I'm not sure if this is true still, but in Cata there was a "lock-out" portion that you could actually fake and then just run out of the Beam to cast. Of course now you can't just run out of it because of vortex, but I just wanted to point that out.

Trinket makes you immune to the beam effect for the duration of it.

Also it does require a target, making it a undispelable debuff that goes to target, so the target can trinket and clean that debuff
