Avenger's Shield Not Silencing in PvE

Postby Trevize » Tue Jun 23, 2009 1:30 pm

I have been noticing an oddity with Avenger's Shield the last couple of weeks and I was wondering if anyone else is noticing it. It is not silencing mobs in PvE anymore. I have tried it on any number of mobs and bosses and where it used to work a few weeks ago...it does not now.

Can someone else confirm/deny this?

Was silencing the healer in Thorim's arena yesterday for me.

Specific mobs I noticed it happening last night were all the caster's in Vezaxx trash. Phase 1 of Yogg it wasn't working either.

Unless I'm mistaken the majority of Vezax's trash casters have been immune to silence for a while, avenger's shield or otherwise. Interrupt effects work, silences don't.

I know for certain that Iron Council...the little guy...AS did silence his casts and it doesn't now.

Odd, when I tried it two weeks ago, it didn't silence him.

Yeah, this. He's stunnable while anyone else is up.

As people have said, Stormcaller Brundir is susceptible to both silences and stuns until he is the last Council member alive, at which point he becomes immune to both. Normal interrupts still work.

He's also immune to stun/silence/interupt while casting overload!

I can confirm that AS doesn't silence Vezax trash as we were fighting him last night and I noticed this very thing. As everyone else has said, it works on Brundir to get him out of the runes and stuff until phase 3, at which point it stops working. I don't know why they made the Vezax trash immune to silence, it's a massive pain in the backside, but at least they can be deathgripped.

No, when Vezax trash wasn't stunable it did silence them. As soon as that was changed it didn't work anymore, and you could also no longer use HoJ to pull them closer.

I noticed many of these changes when the HoJ was implemented. I found many mobs were not silenced by AS anymore.

Which sounds odd considering the silence on AS was implemented far after the interrupt on HoJ.



To the OP: Stop trying to silence immune mobs.
