    Default Unbreakable CC

    So today in Whitefall I noticed someone was hitting me an breakable CC. According to the tooltip it was Snare. And my movement speed was reduced by 70%.

    Here's the skills I used to try and break out of it:

    On the Double with Getaway - No effect
    Cleanse Soul - No effect
    Break Free - No effect
    Shadow Stalk - No Effect

    I noticed this every time I tried to pick up a shard, someone.... and i'm assuming a warrior, would hit me with this debuff, and i'd be a sitting duck. Very annoying that I blew all my cd's, and still was slowed. And this happeed over, and over, and over again.

    So yeah, wtf?

    Welcome to the bugged ability Earth Burst that warriors have.. snares pretty much anything (including boss mobs in hk).. is unbreakable

    Why it hasn't been disabled until it is hotfixed is beyond me (they did it for other classes abilities early on)

    Awsome.....

    thanks for the info. I've of course heard of this Eath Burst skill, but have never had it used against me until today. And yeah, that's now 3 whitefall matches today where every time I popped from stealth I am insta slowed, and can't break it until I am dead.

    sounds like the warlock spell Wither, I dont believe its dispellable, and TBH nor should it be, its a slow spell not a debuff

    From what I've seen wither behaves as it should. It was probably Earth Burst.

    while everyone is frothing at the mouth in rage that warriors dare be allowed possesion of a bugged ability, i'd like to point out that this is earth bursts second incarnation as a bugged ability.

    the previous bug suffered by this ability resulted in the damage component not applying if the target was immune to movement CC for any reason. as a finisher this was cause for concern for the RB warriors at the time (not many of them around then, but some).

    it took trion a fairly long time to get around to addressing this bug, but when they did, the ability as you know it today was the result.

    as such earth bursts current status is not actualy a bug, but is infact a fix ;)

    When they fix Dominator Stuns in 1.5 that suffer the same problem of not applying damage, I hope they fix it the same way!

    A fix indeed, they just fixed it a little too good.

    I am pretty sure there is a combat log somewhere that you can inspect so that you can read what hit you when you were snared and avoid people spitting random names to blame this or that class and later call for nerfs.

    They fixed Dusk to Dawn for Nightblades, no reason they can't fix Earth Burst. They have enough ranged tools, no reason for unbreakable roots.
