Blizzard has shared that PvP medallion trinkets – called CC break trinkets – will see their CC break functionality restored in World of Warcraft’s upcoming Shadowlands expansion, which is currently in beta.

The forum post begins by providing some history for the trinkets which were called “CC break trinkets” before Legion. These trinkets removed movement impairing and control loss effects. They were also considered to be extremely powerful PvP rewards.

“In Legion, the PvP template system deactivated all effects from gear. This meant that functionality like this had to be included in the honor talent system, along with alternatives.”

Now, however, the CC break functionality is looking to make its return in Shadowlands,

“For Shadowlands, we plan to restore this CC break functionality to a trinket, and make it a powerful PvP trinket option that comes exclusively from PvP. Players will be able to purchase this trinket for Honor or Conquest from one of the new PvP vendors returning in Shadowlands.”

As expected, some folks are happy about the change with others questioning the decision,

“This seems pretty pointless. If you really need that much protection against CC (assuming that Relentless/Adaption stay in), then just run the Battlemaster’s trinket and pre-use as they are bursting you. That will help you live a lot longer than breaking one CC in a long CC chain.”
