Fossilise needs a nerf ASAP

This skill just is just the most ridiculously over performing cc in the game and makes the old rune cage look tame in comparison. In CP pvp there are already enough snares , CC’s and immobilises to have 1 skill that wrap the 2 worst together. there is nothing worse than kiting on a medium armour build to be instantly wiped because of this skill alone. Combined with half a dozen dots even the most incapable player can sit there perm blocking, fossilise then leap or meteor and get easy kills with a 2 button combo.

In non CP most magica builds don’t have the stamina recovery to break the CC, dodge roll the immobilise and then break the next CC (most builds don’t have the barspace to run race against time). For some reason Rune cage was nerfed multiple ways in 1 update but this even better skill persists update to update without change.

    Sure why not, and while we are at it, we should also nerf Leap, isn't it what's being used in combo as you mentioned.

    Fossilize good! The problem that needs to be adressed is the GCD where you can’t do anything after breaking the CC.

    Very often it behaves like old eclipse.

    It is dead for Stam DK, I've had it off my bar for several weeks to get ready for this cost increase.

    Stam DK can't afford it anymore.

    MagDK may still run it since it is critical to what a lot of them do (talons + fossilize then burn burn burn)

    ZoS undervalues roots and doesn’t respect how powerful it is to completely negate someone’s movement. Root as a secondary effect on an already-good ability bundles too much utility into a single GCD. Cripple, Blockade, Bombard, Living Dark, Fossilize should treat the root as the primary effect of the ability or remove it.

    The problem with this skill is not the skill itself, I mean it can be looked at as overloaded but the actual issue is the poor cc breaking system. Which makes skills like fossilize and fear more annoying than the rest.

    Get a grip on the controller and learn to play. These nerf everything threads should be banned. Bunch of whiners crying cuz of a strong single target CC...

    Mind you the devs already gave the best group utility CC to every stam class with fear evil. You gonna be crying about that reaaaaal soon too.

    It’s one of the few skills that can be used against the roly poly stam builds to actually be able to hit them. Being able to dodge ALL damage over and over again is pretty OP.

    It got a hefty cost increase this patch making it unsustainable on StamDk. Also if you’re running medium in this meta that’s really on you OP.

    Only stam can break it easily. On mag you can literaly break one. In no-cp one roll and one CC break is all you have

    To cast fossilize you need to be riding piggy back with your target. In the new patch the thing costs an insane amount aswell. It’s good yes but it’s far from op.
    I hop from my dk to my stam sorc and run circles around poor dks trying to cc me. It’s got many nerfs already from root immunity, to cost increase, to range being spitting distance. I think it’s completely fair now for its power.

    Ypu can have fossilize if you give me back old cinderstorm or flames of oblivion or wings or dragonblood

    Tl;dr really weigh the fun you have in game vs the business practices you are supporting.

    Nerf this, then make unrelenting grip stun players for 3 seconds so we can replace it, because it will be useless.
