Avengers' shield and Concecration breaking cc?

Postby santacruze » Thu Jun 05, 2008 10:02 am

Hello, my first post here, think I've searched the forum but can't find the answer to my question.

Will avenger's shield and/or concecration break cc, such as sheep, sap etc?

I know used to do it, but a friend of mine said he read something in a patch note that they don't do it anymore.

How does it work? I'm planning to specc tank in a near future and am really curious.

Cheers,
Santa

Avenger's Shield doesn't break CC since patch 2.4. Consecration does though, like any AoE spell.

AS wont break nearby CC it will only break the one that is targeted. Consecration will break all CC except for banish and mind control I believe.

Yep.... Shield won't, consec will. Learn to love consecration as it'll help you against people who insist on using CC when you ask 'm not to. Run in -> consec -> problem solved :D

Basically, CCed targets and critters were removed from the list of valid targets for AS. Mind Controlled targets are friendly, and Banishes are immune, so they aren't valid targets for AS or Consecrate.

Consecrate just hits every possible non-friendly target in your range, which includes CC and critters. I love watching the squirrels try to run away.

Banished targets still are valid targets actually. You jsut waste a jump.

I believe cycloned targets are also immune to damage; but probably will eat a shield toss charge.

I believe that I have had AS still hit critters off a bounce before very recently.

Tested last night; I only succeeded in hitting critters when I target them directly.
