    Default The new DR System.

    It is utterly and completely rubbish. Arresting Presence and Deaden and Weapon barrage are completely out of control. I have actually yet to see a case where Weapon Barrage has lasted for less than 5 seconds on me and it has a 10 second cooldown. Shoud stop hating on cleric and mage, these silences are utterly ridiculous.

    If I'm not healing the DR system is annoying at best, but also useful to only a handful of classes that have multiple of the same type of ability or short Cd's.

    As a healer it is the worst thing in the world. Silenced 50% of the time, Pulled multiple times into enemy mobs, stunned...oh I can cast...stunned again, rooted after being pulled. Feared. Since everyone is primarily ranged at 60 or has the range I can't "range" people. Tactics don't work there.

    Some trees don't even have a 2nd break free mechanic so if you are stuck with one and out of luck when you are pulled followed by another pull. Happens a lot as healer.

    -attunement of war is your first friend,
    -some silences, stuns and snares can be removed with cleanse, all apply again if you stay in big puddles launched from ranged dps, therefore cleanse and move, aoe cleanse will take 10 ppl out from silence
    -save your break free, and any speed increase for rogues

    takes a bit of practice to recognize what cc you can cleanse, good part is DR already starts

    avoid port of scion, seeing all the aoe damage on the bridge that you can't fill alone can be frustrating, and you wont be "Pulled multiple times into enemy mobs" :P

    It's quite frankly game breaking. The damage is enough, but being cc'd on every single cast time gets tedious.

    The problem being, you can't cleanse yourself when stunned and even though Empowering light or whatever the AOE cleanse is called, is available for pressing, it doesn't actually cleanse anything.

    Deaden -> Silences for five seconds -> Five seconds of immunity -> Deaden off cooldown.

    Whether the intended behaviour is sane or not is up for discussion but it's certainly WAI.

    nothing, but it's on cooldown during the immunity period regardless - that's the joke if we can call it that.

    Pretty sure, when talented, it's a 10 second cooldown.

    I just thought it was a 15s CD. Which is still twice as good as my anti magic tank soul's 36pt silence. lol

    You rogues are still so spoiled. :P
