    Default CC is getting a little........excessive.

    I don't know if it is because there are a ton of souls out there with debilitate or if the DR isn't working right, but between Debilitate, pulls, roots, perma snares, and stuns it can make PvP kind of awful. Also, I think that immunities got screwed up as Break Free isn't firing when some effects are on. I have also been debilitated through Perseverance (making me wonder if they just forgot to add the new Deb CC to its immunity) and pulled back in the middle of a teleport with Dark Passage.

    All in all something seems broken since 2.7 went live.

    DR is definitely not working correctly, or Break Free isn't granting immunity since 2.7.

    I think I've seen the DR timer on myself exactly twice, even though 2 of my characters have done a lot of leveling through warfronts. I'm also noticing a fair bit of cc is not triggering break free or other cc breaks. Seems to happen several times per warfront.

    Debiliililititate reminds me of GW2 CC, you had to have a certain type of "break free" to get out of some conditions.

    Now, everyone must spec into a port that removes cc, it's the only thing that removes bilbilibate for me.

    ya. they tried to sort out CC into different category, but as usual... failed. I was wondering is it the work load too heavy or they simply don't care about it? With this kind of attitude in making the game, how to give confident to player(s) to continue investing in your game?

    To DEVS: Why bother pushing out something which is/are broken. What's the point?

    The other day I was watching my buddy play WoW and I was laughing at him for being chain CCed for 20 seconds. It is just so obvious how much better RIFT gameplay is. But after this week I found myself "Debilitated" and stunned way more often than before. Not cool, Totally not cool.

    Do you honestly believe the dev's are trying to break their platform? come on man, its called human error, something obviously went wrong, that's why we have patch hot fixes. Trion cares about its platform, and they care about the player base, you do not have to believe that, but that's your choice. Give them a chance to sort it out.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    And this is why I despise WoW as a game, chain CC for half a minute is not a fun experience. I despise small scale pvp anyway.

    There was a lot of QQ about the Arresting Pressence nerf but with the current broken DR mechanic, it's more OP than ever before!

    Am I the only one who wants to play in a 5 man Cabalist premade?

    70 seconds of chain ccing 10 people sounds pretty incredible.

    Did cab build in pvp yesterday for funzies. Didn't get to chain cc 10 people continuously but most of the cc's landed, which is more than what I can say for pre 2.7. I'd given up on cab for pvp, switching to either Inq or Sent/puri for most runs. It does irk me that my cleric builds that incorporate 11 points cab for dark passage have essentially wasted those 11 points. Hopefully they fix it sooner rather than later.

    Chain cc in wow is perfectly fine. Infact is almost manditory, When ttk is long enough to survive full dueration cc the chain ccs are very necessary.


    Its great for wow.

    It would destroy Rift unless it took longer the 4 seconds to burst a player down.


    In wow we cc healers to kill dps.

    In rift we cc dps so they dont kill our healers.
