Yeahhhh... being required to take Improved Psychic Scream to get Silence is lame in my book. I would love to grab Silence for PVE, even at the cost of a similar utility talent, but not when I have to spend prerequisite points in a talent that I strongly dislike. Plus, it feels like too many points are being spent on DPS talents at this point and not enough free points for hard decision making between utility ones.Also, I'm guessing Blizzard's comment about Improved Shadowform providing Haste is still in a build they haven't rolled out yet.

Agreed that I think having Improved Psychic Scream to get Silence is lame.I never use psychic scream because it sends things running. I am much more a fan of Psychic Horror because if I really NEED to fear something, I don't want it running off to grab friends. I don't even have Psychic scream on my action bars anywhere because i have such bad luck with pulling more mobs. I use Silence. Lots. Forcing a caster to melee makes me smile. Stopping a crippling spell mid cast is wonderful. If it has to be a prereq, can it only have one talent point to get it. Make Silence available after one point is invested, not two and I don't feel like I have to throw two talents in the trash to get one I want.

Taking away the pre-requisite part of Silence would be a great way to add exactly the kind of "tough, but fun" choices that Blizzard is looking to implement. It doesn't make things mathier or harder to figure out for newbies.As is, at level 85, I wouldn't be able to justify taking it now. If they removed the prereq, I probably would. Interrupts are underrated, and I'd rather have Silence than, say, 5% more damage mitigation on a PW:Shield.
