    Hopefully they will throw a real stun that we can control in their as a replacement. I would be happy for that..

    Really doubt that ... but possible ofc. I think the last thing SP's needed was this kinda nerf .
    But ofc priests have fear so they still have cc

    They obviously meant they would make it less random. Which is a good thing.

    Re: Blackout to be removed?

    He also said they will take a while to fade out stuns like Blackout because they have to compensate the classes for the loss of random proc stuns. So I would really be looking forward to a controlled stun on, let's say a 20 seconds cooldown.

    I sure hope you are right and we will get something good in compensation :/
    Because if not, this is truly starting to get comical. Tragicomical to be honest.

    I'm wondering why he didn't mention mage's impact, since they buffed it recently with wotlk.

    i do like the way they're trying to go...

    Eliminate as much RNG out of the game as possible..

    @poster above : im sure they will remove that as well they just didnt post it(would be a too long list to post all wouldnt be?)

    did warriors get a controlled stun then they removed the old mace specialization? No! so don´t get your hopes up, because i´m very certain that there will be no stun for you

    good point but the reason behind is different.. Macestun was too op ( especially with mace herald and WW, think about Bladestorm..and a Mace..) and here, I guess its all about RNG...

    but may be im wrong :/

    They did get 15% (or 30%? dunno) armor penetration though. Blackout is a 5 point talent for 10% stun chance. They have to give us something good to make up for it. No matter if it's a stun or something else that is good.

    Re: Blackout to be removed?

    Yeah removing impact should be on the list too.. but mage don't need impact as much as sp need those blackout procs (and actually with KS going on DR I'm considering droping impact for my rogue/mage team)

    Re: Blackout to be removed?

    This is a good thing. I mean in general, removing RNG stuns.

    Even if the compensation turns out to be crap, think positive!

    You already suck hard in PvP.

    ATM shadow PvP is a total disaster.

    Nothing they do will make it worse!!

    Except removing Blackout and giving nothing in return

    You lookin for a fair and balanced game? One that's totally about the player skill and non of the extra flair and dazzle? Well try "PONG", this beauty is a timeless classic and is proudly supported by the "Stop feeding the Trolls Union 105"

    Moonkin didnt get any compensation for the removal of a 15% stunchance on a 3 min cooldown ability that was 3+1 talentpoint. If priests get compensation we truly know that blizz hates moonkins in pvp. But now we can go deep resto and get NS instead I guess.

    On a more serious note, I guess they are going further for their goal of getting it more skill based rather than luck based. Hopefully we'll see a good addition to priests pvp survivability instead of this skill.

    And just to clarify it, removing low percentage proc-abilities for those that need timing and skill is acually quite a good idea. However that does not mean that the situation in pvp is currently balanced ^^

    Re: Blackout to be removed?

    if we got a controlled stun / drool, or maybe some dot protection would be nice

    Re: Blackout to be removed?

    impact and blackout are different

    blackout can proc with the shadow damage of the dot, and it's in the first tier of talent

    mage just don't have REAL dot spells (ignite proc, LB, fireball, frostfire or pyro dot...)


    BUT they have molten armor... probably they will remove impact with blackout...
