  • Silence is now available to Discipline and Shadow Priests.

Disc priests return to their throne

I'm sort of fucking thrilled about this actually, at least disc has to cast!

Very strong buff though.

yeah I agree disc priests should be able to cover their own fears with a silence that lasts as long as the fear

Overlords?
So when are they giving me my baseline 8 seconds fear on 30 seconds cooldown?
Silence is extremely good in arena, but I wish they had given cc against melee which always is the problem when playing more randomly on bg's and such, which is what I enjoy the most.

Psychic scream's 8 seconds were also what I used to pick up the flags in AB, now that it lasts 6 seconds on a 45 sec cd I might as well pick up mind control.

Those glory days in TBC when we had mana burn + 27 cd fear + mind control baseline + 4pc freedom on PWS...
no one complained back then that there was too much CC, yet we had more than in the beta.

I agree that they should make psychic scream baseline again, but it's really not the end of the world.

Void Tendrils is incredibly powerful vs melee. Are they implementing nerfs into how many root breaks melee have atm? If so then even better!

No one complained about Mana Burn? Are you high son?

You can't tremor out of fears on beta, you have to pre-tremor (unless they reverted the change).

If you can just silence --> kill tremor before the fear it kind of dumbs down the whole mechanic imo though.

I forsee disc being #1 healer for healer killer comps. Think of this new disc combined with the currently OP Frost DKs and warrs. Yummy, Bow down, peasants.

Ya know, i was born in west philadelphia. I spent most of my days on the play ground. Usually i just be chillin, relaxin, trying to act cool by shooting some b-ball at school. But on this one, terrible, dreary, horrid day, a couple of guys that were certainly up to no good starting making trouble.. I was the first one of course to step up and fight them back. Because of this, my mom got scared and made me move in with my aunt and uncle in bel-air.

Stupid, retarded change.


Couldn't agree more. We kept pestering Blizzard for baseline CC, asking if we can have our Psychic Scream back baseline - even at its current 6s duration 45s CD variant. Instead they give us a tool against Casters. Also keep in mind that they 'removed' Blankets in WoD except for a few outliers, namely Shadow Priests having access to Silence.

Now they give Disc a CC that can be used more offensively than almost any other outside of an non-DRd full stun. I'd rather have additional tools against melee. Void Tendrils break if I sneeze near someone sitting in them.

I'd rather see:
  • A new 2pc bonus that doesn't work against our movement tier of talents
  • More throughput - Penance is the only heal that on Beta feels like it heals the appropriate amount. Mending procs for 5300 non crit, which is 1.4% of a 340k healthpool - or a single Lifebloom tick, for example
  • More engaging talents. Get rid of feathers and Guise and whatever else makes getting fears trivial
  • Some sort of dispel protection, and some value added back into crit heals as opposed to abomination that Divine Aegis have become
I won't say no to having Silence, but it isn't the right move whatsoever. Rog/X/Priest is going to be retarded if this change sticks and goes live. Any comp including a Disc priest that can take all DRs of CC and use them offensively in an opener is going to benefit from this, leading to a more mongo 'kill it before it can react' type of gameplay.

While this is true, I still don't like promoting a change to try and keep up in the 'arms' race with other healers. Resto Druids need some serious adjustments on Beta to be brought in line with the other healers. I'd much rather see them brought down to earth and have Disc adjusted to be competitive.

Fair point, though.
