    Most likely the op got spammed by more than one DK that is when it can be most annoying.
    I don't even have talons on my bar anymore it became so ineffective and buggy for me, I will slot fossilize instead if needed.
    My Imgakin beta monkey got lost in a load screen.

    I hadn't thought about it but i have to agree it's the increased cost of dodge roll that's making this seem more OP. Thanks for pointing that out

    OP must must be a sorc, getting trapped by (nerfed to death) Dks and is struggling trying to compete against a DK.

    Not likly , a sorc has plenty of options to this strategy. Daedric mines, bolt esc, pets, summon atronoch, prox det, shields, pulsar, encase, crystal prison, and how about keeping your distance from a melee class lol the only time a Sorc need worry about a DK is if they have none of these options on their bar... in which case they prolly deserve to be taught a lesson.

    Not to mention rapid maneuvers... (can it be purged too?idk)

    Point being, pvp is filled with counters, and countering a DK in entirety is far from out of question. honestly my kill counter has dk's resulting in 11% of my deaths. and most of that is probably from getting tagged by them in Zergs. The real number is prolly closer to 5%... where as NB's are at a staggering 52% of my deaths since IC launch

    for the record, talons is a soft cc because you can still defend yourself and roll out of it.

    Yes, and you *might* have to adapt. I run a bar with non-reflectable skills or just avoid Reflect spamming dks. look at your class skills...there are probably plenty of counters to it. or you might have to stop min maxing your character for damage and pick up a set/skill bar with more utility then just raw damage. or you might just have to pick up a bow or staff.

    Yeah lets give an immunity to all CC from and AOE immobilization. That should be handy. That one special snowflake Magicka DK left in the game can hand out free CC immunities to everyone for the temporary loss of the W key. I'm sure the group is going to love that.

    bombard is ok, cause dk didn't dew it.

    been across many sorcs with CP far greater than mine constantly im pushing 119,
    always seem to me that I have no problem lasting in 1v1s with sorcs just not storcs. unless I keep using destructive reach talons and whip also heavy staff attack..
    every single one of my 1v1s with sorcs have ended up in stalemates and us running away from each other. its hard being a DK period!
    although I feel as if I do better on my V3 DK than my V16 Templar. dragon knights are nerfed to the ground yet many DKs manage fairly well against sorcs. now having X amount of CP will help either class and its pretty damn ridcioulos of the amount of abilities Sorcs have and their stupid crazy shield stacking. that's alright keep shiled stacking I keep trying to fly away. hasn't worked yet for me, atleast I tried.

    A DK that isn't wrecking blow (and flame lash) on players stuck in his talons is doing it wrong.

    To break out of Talon spam.Try these simple steps

    1. Flex your Whiskers
    2. Twitch your tail similar to the Two Moons Dance
    3. Type /MEOW <

    That is it Talons broke. This will only work if you are a dark striped or banded Khajiit. Solid color Khajiits have different hidden super powers.

    Oh look some one is crying that DKs are finally getting a buff. Dks (and templars) need buffed and the talon changes are the first of it.

    Deal with it.

    They should make the subsequent talons affect friendly players as well and watch the hilarity ensue

    I had a DK once....and my DK's talons during that timeframe were the last thing on your mind when he engaged you in Cryodil.

    Oh no Guys..we still have DK as on option when creating characters in ESO. ZOS we obviously need you to delete DK as an option.

    OP there are SOO many things to point out in this game about requiring finessing yet you come post about a DKs talons???

    Nay, nay. Make scales able to reflect siege and last for 30 sec with no limit on projectiles reflected. Then add 100% immobility to people caught under a banner. There may never be another complaint about talons then.

    Buff magicka skills and make talons a hard Cc along with bombard. It'd the most *** thing to be able to spam root over and over again to the point where a Zerg can run guys that purely do this.

    Dodge roll is not an option for most magicka builds that run out of stam after 2 rolls

    I think Reflective Scales should cause a dialogue window to appear on your opponents screen requiring him to manually accept the reflect policy before being able to cast projectiles.

    RIP talons now T_T

    Similar story as with sorcerer's blink, instablock and continuous rolldodge - some whiner come to forum, whine that he can't kill everyone easy, and ZOS listen to him.

    Though blink and rolldodge still a thing, stamina nerf affected stramina-based dd's a lot.

    But purge is an option for magicka builds.
    Lest talk about fear as @Beesting pointed. This the most OP skill in the game. It doesnt break on damage, it has terrible animation and you are not able to break it immediately, drain your stamina and if you are out of stamina you are dead.
