Or is it a physical effect? Thus, can it be BoPed off?
yay another non specific spell that behaves counterintuitively and is op as a result.
bring the light.
I'd like to say it'll never make it to live in its current incarnation, but who am I kidding. It's a mobile, undispellable silence & disarm super utility spell. Melee and casters alike shall tremble before it. And knowing Blizzard's track record with such things, it won't get tweaked into a reasonable state until its far, far too late.
It doesn't work like smoke bomb. The target is still targetable. Just kite when its up/ have your teammate peel for you. It's going to be more brutal for the double melee cleave teams that stack trying to burst down a single target than anything else. It's not going to be OP as people are making it out to be. The good arena players will counter it pretty easily. If they find it's too op the only thing i see them changing is making it a 3 min cd instead of 2 min.

We are very aware that Ring of Peace is quite an overpowered ability right now and we are still working on it quite heavily. Expect to see more changes coming for Ring of Peace soon. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
When even the devs find something OP you can be sure that it is insanely OP.
This is getting nerfed somehow unless devs get yet another meltdown.
Here's hoping this ability gets scrapped completely from the game!

After those 8 seconds you still have all your interrupts stuns and other stuff left. Or just cast it on the enemy healer and zerg an DPS in the time CCing the healer as soon as RoP wears of or even before that.
Alternatively, you could just make a silly statement on a community site, do nothing about it, whine, complain and moan as it goes live in its current state then make a thread about how you're going to quit, or you're raging because "the Panda Class just kicked my ass and I hate that!".

This ability is about balancing Monks and actually making them worth while in PvP. We're trash in PvP currently, but I do agree it is an overpowered ability at the moment. I feel though that it can be very easily countered in many ways, so anyone worth a damn will be able to deal with this accordingly.
If the monk puts it on themselves, keeping them slowed, stunned or snared is going to ensure that they're not causing any harm with it. If they place it on a friendly target, the same applies. If it is placed on one of your team mates, you simply move away from them.
Having your partner silenced for a few seconds is just something you're going to have to deal with. I want there to be things in PvP that can't be countered. I hate the fact that everything has a button to push, to cure it, but if you run out of those buttons you're fucked.
I'd much prefer a slower pace of PvP, where it is your skill entirely that matters, not if you had to push a button 30 seconds earlier, so there is fuck all you can do now.
That was not defendable.
RoP is not defendable.
If a monk put it on your healer while nuking him, he will be silenced for 8s (an eternity), getting probably stunned after, taking damage, with your melee friend who cant peel for him because he's silenced and disarmed.
Oh, and your healer cant trinket that. Good luck.
That spell is not balancing monks in PvP, that's giving them a 2min IWIN button.
Depending on the group comp, you may have to just save your trinket if place on you. Then what are they gonna do? dr you with stuns? You're not fighting them solo you have partners and peels for a reason. Everyone always sees new as OP since they themselves didn't get the spell. It's strong yes, but it will just force others to be as counter strong with their cds. The game will balance itself around this new level of strategic game play.
Just make it trinket-able, and the spell will be fine imo then. If not, just kite and use peels. Low rated players 2v2 vs double monk will feel like pulling their hair out, which the game isn't balanced around anyways, but 3v3 doesn't seem to hard to counter.
It will, mark my words it will.I highly doubt we'll see Ring of Peace go live in its current state, where you can't trinket it, and I believe that they may add the option to dispel it also.
If this was live, 3v3 arena would look like this...
Monk team sets up for kill. Blanket silence healer for 8 seconds. 4 second fist of fury stun the kill target. Neither can trinket.
