Given that it made you give up a character I think that points to two things 1) Bears need a silence and 2) That is a significant nerf for PvE to take away the silence.
I'm not saying PvE is the "true" form. Ghostcrawler said his stated objective is to balance the OP of Prot Warriors in PvP while _not_ having an adverse affect on their PvP. If that's _his_ objective then the articles solutions don't meet that criteria.
It seems like a lot of the PvP problems come up in Arena specifically and less so in general PvP. Why can't there be a "if in Arena then" phrase and have spells have a limitation in arena use.
Jan 11th 2010 8:28PM Wow so lets see those suggestions as they translate to PVE mean:
1) Less damage done by warriors who already have the lowest dps of the tanking classes
2) Inability to silence casters and therefore unable to pull them when LOS is not an option
3) Reduce AOE threat by putting diminishing returns on a frontal cone ability that already has a relatively long cooldown.
Unless those limitations can be limited to "while in an arena" that pretty severely gimps Prot Warrior PvE. Not exactly a balanced nerf.
Run up to it and tank it isn't always an option. Also, is there any reason in particular why it would be reasonable to make Prot Warriors the only tanking class that can't pull a caster.

Apr 17th 2008 1:40PM From the "Updated - Linden Lab has spotted the problem" it really sounds like they need some classic systems monitoring ala a Network Management System. I would bet that there are some signs of problems developing long before it snowballs to this level. Databases have monitoring tools, network connections can be monitored, systems can be monitored and if built sensibly software can have monitoring components. Systems do have problems but this "everyone knows about them hours before Linden Lab" syndrome seems a bit...silly.
Mar 8th 2007 9:13PM I think that people using that mod should have to wear those cheesey comic-book x-ray glasses.
Ok...I'm just being silly there. There is an expectation of privacy. In RL there have been various devices that hit the news that made clothing more invisible and it was a brief outrage, but it was soon forgotten. I'd rather not be looked at naked unless I choose to, but the technology is there. One thing I wonder though, since you must still see prims (for the mod to be practical) would prim clothing still remain? I could see a modesty market for prim coverups.
