Im sure there was fear DR in vanilla, but it doesnt seem like this works in classic. I watched a 34 lock attack a 35 elite in alterac mountains and solo’d it easily without even using a void walker. They litteraly just dot dot 15 sec fear, dot dot 15 sec fear, dot dot 15 sec fear, rinse and repeat…
Everything else that makes you lose control of your character has DR except fear it seems. Repeated stuns will make you stun immune, sheeping works for up to 30 sec then starts its DR, even mind control has a DR. Everything but fear, you can just soam it back to back for as long as you want for some reason.
Can a lock/priest/warrior comment and see if this is accurate; from the people I’ve talked to in game it seems lije they’re agree that fear seems broken without DR. I believe it would be good to test this and nip it in the bud before bgs come out and its just a fear fest to win.
Edit. - i do notice this in pvp and pve scenarios, not just one or the other
