Personally, I go through 2/2 Improved Psychic Scream to pick up Silence, and the ranged interrupt has been pretty useful in ICC. Also, Dusknoir is one word.

The problem with Silence, as was experienced way back in Tempest Keep (though I will be honest that I haven't tried it out recently), is that a lot of mobs, particularly in raids, are actually immune to Silence, making it unreliable.Also, because Psychic Scream has extremely limited use, especially in a raid environment, due to its tendency to simply pull more mobs, resulting in more harm than good, I would actually steer people away from these two talents.

I guess I was kind of unclear. I'll agree that Psychic Scream is basically useless in a raid environment, but the only way to get to Silence is to talent into 2/2 Imp. Psychic Scream. All raid bosses are still immune to casting lockout component of the spell, but the interrupt component is still effective, and 3 talent points for a ranged interrupt is a pretty good deal, considering there honestly isn't anywhere else to put them.

I agree on all accounts. ;)

I'd say silence has saved my raid from wiping three times in ICC (twice to pull in Plague Scientists so we wouldn't accidentally pull a dog when we didn't want to, once on a Deathwhisper frost bolt), and saved us some inconvenience against paladin severed essences when we pull both Val'kyrs at once. That's is more than any alternative I can come up for those three points would have done.
