    Default Shielded Fang pickups

    Cleric bubble is a great thing and useful to the class don't get me wrong. But when its abused in 70% of the BG matches i play it starts to get annoying most of the time there's more than 2 clerics in a match and then one bubbles up and then proceeds to pick up the fang unfazed by disrupts or knock backs and when that one dies the cycle repeats.

    Theres even been matches were the opposite team has never touched the fang unshielded leaded to blowouts due to this one skill.

    this bothers me because same with GOS you cant disrupt them via knock back or disrupt. sure you can say its part of the game and rogues can do it too well that's fine but rogues dont live half the match absorbing 70% hp ticks like a champ, when people just abuse this to no end its a total put off.

    There are alot of mechanics in game atm that affect "shard touching" in general, but if you look at the reverse, E.G. Codex you CC the person guarding it take the objective. As long as both teams have similar classes I don't see that its unfair to leave the mechanics in the game.

    And yes, my 3 sec immunity allows me in any game to just pick up a shard care free and walk away.

    The reason you have 4 souls is to provide negative feedback on all 4 at once, rather than focusing an educated feedback on 1.

    Once you start winning, you will forget about your complaint.

    Say what? Cleric bubbles only prevent damage. There's a reason why people CC bubbled clerics.

    If people aren't fearing/shielding/aoedmging every time the fang has dropped in the middle of a fight then they're doing it wrong

    You or your team is doing it wrong.

    Shields are pretty much the only reason anyone takes any objectives, especiially in BG. I do it all the time with my healer bubble or my shaman ice armor. NB's immunities are far more annoying if you ask me, go complain about those.

    Purge type abilities are your friend mines only a 10 seconds CD and removes 2 effect normal shield first then a hot with buffs being 3rd priority it seams. My buddies VK purges 3 at a time. There are at least 3 souls i can think of that can purge.
