    Are you serious? I am a monk and I agree I hate blanket silences as much as anyone but why just spearhand strike that is getting nerfed? I have to be in melee range of my target standing infront of them to get my silence off but a mage range silence at 4 seconds is okay? If you are going to nerf it, nerf all the blanket silences, not just one of them.

    At the cost of a fantastic stun, yes.

    It is not a real silence. Can a mod please spell silence for the thread name? I am not sure how that slipped past me>.<.

    Yeah, this unnecessary. Casters are already dominating PvP, I don't see why they have to be pampered like this. Same goes for Ring of Peace, they made it absolutely brutal against melee (who are in very low demand for RBGs especially), but they make it fairly weak against casters. They should really buff it back to 3 sec at least, at 2 sec there's really not even any point to using it unless you're going to interrupt something. The saddest part is that this is basically a mage buff, since they are one of the only casters that have tons of spells to cast from different schools...everyone else has a little something, but mages have some very important abilities split between different schools... OMG someone is making a mage break a sweat in PvP... NERF NAO!!!

    This isn't what was the problem with Monks.

    WW monks needed this to get any pressure at all, and while it may be annoying for receiving classes, without it they are pretty shitty. They should've just made the silence WW only, because it was only over the top for MW.

    Of course if you compare it to a ranged interrupt with a longer CD it seems quite odd. But then compare it to Mind Freeze, Pummel, Rebuke. Most of the melee interrupts are worse than Spear Hand Strike.

    I don't know about the energy requirement though, if it's a major thing or not for monks.

    Dk's and warriors already have a silence, pally I don't think so?And to do this you have to be in front of the target so I * miss* it quite a lot and waste my interrupt. It is avoidable unlike the mage/lock one.

    It cost mana and energy but all interrupts are going to be enegyless/manaless next patch.

    Eh our cc chaining requires us to be out in the open, other healers have as long cc chain as we do and they do not have to be in melee range for it to happen.

    Why so threatening? Fine take it away from me but take the other interrupt blanket silences away too. I am fine with that.

    Your seriously saying a 4 second silence on a 15 sec cd was fine? Do you remember gag order? It might have been overlooked when monks were weak but after the mountain of buffs they are getting in 5.2 this is justified. Your interrupt is still better than most.

    Dont compare it to other blank cs's on twice the cd from casters. Melee =/= casters.

    Because when a 1500 player feels entitled it creates dumb biased threads.

    Only thing that seemed wrong was the cd. Since it was baked into the interrupt, the whole thing got nerfed. Probably would have been better if it was another spell and they just increased the cd on it like dks have it.

    Damn. This nerf will totally destroy monks viability in 5.2...

    If monks only had some sort of ranged AOE disarm/silence on a low cooldown!

    Oh wait...


    Monks will still be ridicolous after this nerf. Dont worry!

    Doesn't silence healers, and isn't a reliable silence really.
