One issue that has been bothering me about the new beta Shadow tree is that Silence is still gated behind Improved Psychic Scream. For that matter, why does Imp Psychic Scream still exist in its current (Wrath) form on beta? Didn't the developers say they were trying to move away from pure PvP talents?

Yeah I really wish they weren't connected. First, it doesn't really make sense for a ranged silence to be the next step in an improved scream talent, but maybe that's just me. Second, psychic scream has dangerous consequences in pve content, but a ranged silence would be very nice to have (without having to invest 3 points, of course) for control purposes.

I think shadow priests universally agree that it's dumb, but it's my uneducated guess that blizzard wishes to keep silence from the PvE players, for whatever reason. that, or it's just a relic they haven't polished yet.keep them fingers crossed buckos.

What if they switched Silence and Psychic Horror? If you're taking Psychic Horror, you're already taking Improved Scream, right?

that WOULD be more logical from a flavour perspective.
