8 second aren't "a few seconds", 8 seconds is a hell of a long time. Just line up your burst, start bursting one of the enemies and put RoP onto their healer. He is now taken out of the game for !8! seconds without being able to use an trinket or dispell it. And it gives your own team lots of time to apply the next CC onto him building up an insane ammount of pressure.
Blizzard came to their senses on this one it seems;
Its been posted here and there but i dont think everyone has seen it yet.
New RoP is fine with me
Clearly an acceptable version now.
Eh. It's still an insane counter to DKs.
3 sec lockout is hardly an insane counter to dk. and then any char that has a weapon chain effect only disarmed for 1.5s. and it says not silenced unless you cast a harmful spell does that mean you can still cast healing spells while in it?
Looks like the new change made it more reasonable. It won't interfere with healing anymore, though melee will still be in trouble.
ring of peace sounds like it should be a magic effect, having it behave as a physical effect would be a little counter intuitive.
and if chaos wave taught us anything its that its not unknown for magic effects to behave like physical effects and for it not to be common knowledge ( how long did it take us to figure out you could BoP it?)
" I need a sec, my wrists hurt from spamming slam so hard. Playing cleave vs cleave is tough stuff guys"
I still kinda think that Ring of Peace is a little OP. It's closer to balanced as it is, now, and could go live like this, but I think the silence component should be removed altogether. As it is, you have 8 seconds where a melee class is disarmed and can't use a fair amount of their abilities against you. That's reasonable. With a balance druid you can get the Solar Beam effect and add an immobile silence zone to it. That would be extremely frustrating, but to the opponent it wouldn't feel like you're combatting an OP mechanic - you CAN still have the silence effect if you combine it, but you have to stay within the Solar Beam zone.
#GamerGate has as much to do with misogyny and hatred as atheism has to do with the Big Bang Theory - belief in the BBT is completely separate to the assertion that there is no conclusive proof that any god exists. #GamerGate is about ethics in video game journalism. Misogyny is an optional extra of a vocal minority.
