    Default OP Stuns and dibilitates

    the overpowerful stun and dibilitate combo's in warfronts and pvp to the point that you are littlerly repeatably stuned or dilbilitated to the point of death with NO chance to defend againist it is REDICULUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    the othe pvp mechanic that is seriously flawed is the timer for respawn

    Default Lol

    Lol stuns and debilitates aren't that bad. The only time you can get repeatably stunned is you run into the other teams group, or 1v1 a dom.

If I could design something and get people who don't even want to do it, flooding my gates doing it on their own will.

    *The *overpowered *debilitate *literally *repeatedly *debilitated *ridiculous.

    Try saving your break free for when you really need it instead of putting it on cool down the moment you get CC'd. I love getting someone to burn their break free when they are near full so I can stun them when they are at 20% and blow them up. Derp!
    KABOOM!

    Break free doesnt currently seem to grant any immunity no matter how long you wait out the CC.

    Break Free should be reset every death / respawn.

    lol so you think the two most OP stuns in the game are ones which break on damage? Transmogrify is far more overpowered than verse of captivation or the beast master stun, and besides who the hell plays beast master in warfronts. The main culprites for OP stuns and debilitates are pyromancer's scorch and their debilitate, both of which are on very short cooldowns and are not justified in a spec which also has an 8 second unbreakable root and three cc breaks.

    Welcome to Rift, where the devs hate resource denial because it "prevents people from using their abilities" then design a DR system that allows you to have a higher up-time on being CC'd than not.

    or you know what... we can all go play reaver and wonder if the sky will fall on our head today, but be happy still because it didnt fall yesterday.

    Game 1 - four second daze if you string together over half the enemies damage in consecutive hit after another without any down-time. Can only get one per game with the allowed health, if you get one at all.

    Game 2 - hit the 4 button and your enemy can't do anything for 5 seconds.


    Pretty leet. I still don't get it. When you get dazed in SF it's like, dead-end unless you make a crazy comeback. The enemy being allowed to unload *whatever* they want on you because you are helpless gives an insane upper-hand in any match. Rift just sprinkles it into every 10 seconds of gameplay. It's really freaking obnoxious.

    But even in raiding. I remember Avatar of War. damage shield with a 50% chance proc when it takes damage to stun you for 2 seconds. BEST MOB EVER.

    cast, stun, cast, stun, cast, stun, cast, cast, cast, stun, cast, stun, cast, cast, stun, cast

    ^^^ There is nothing fun about that in PvE or PvP. A whole raid of 24 people who can't function their toons 50% of the fight!

    This and some non-dot debuffs keeping you in combat even if their caster is long dead need to be looked at.

    Good point OP. Let's give all the CC just to doms. Hear, hear!

    I've can't remember being stunlocked and killed (by 1 person) in a couple globals in Rift. I have however been stunlocked and murdered in a couple globals fairly often in other MMOs...so in my experience the stuns aren't bad at all.

    And you can spec for extra CC breaks if you want.

    Also whenever I've seen squirrel last even close to full duration in PVP I run to my phone and call my Mom to tell her about it...more often than not I'll squirrel some healer and then watch some dork go after it guns blazing, break squirrel and allow healer to continue his work.
