    No!

    I've hated buff shears since they were introduced. I understand why they were added as some classes were pretty boring to play without them, but they are just an annoyance, especially for players without a dedicated buffer in their group. e.g. solo/duo/small man.

    Hard No to this.

    It really does make it messy for people without buffs classes in groups/or solo that are using items or pots to buff for fights.

    Buff shear can counter balance buff bot. If we allow one, we should allow the other.
    I know buff shear is mostly damaging solo classes though...
    I voted yes to both (bot and buff shear) to help soloers in pve/pvp and give a little extra for somes classes in pvp

    Labra,

    I agree with your logic partially. "Buff shear can counter balance buff bot" - I agree with that.

    The part I don't agree with it, but note, it is not a disagreement, is where you said "If we allow one, we should allow the other". This is where I kinda drop off.
    I'd like to see buff shears on origins. But that would then force the issue back on the staff to re-evaluate allowing buff bots fully in rvr in case they had decided not to do that from the start.

    Yes, buff shears can and do hurt the small man community. Normally I support things that help the community as a whole.

    In this instance, I would ONLY be comfortable with having buff shears ONLY if buff bots were completely allowed in all forms-- However, that I am not in support of having buff bots in RvR.

    I think we can have buff bots without having buff shears, but we (as players) definitely would have a lot of serious problems if we had buff shears without allowing buff bots -- this is where I am on board with saying no to buff shears.

    This particular feature was a response from Mythic/EA to help counter some of the buff botting that was going on back in the day as their way of trying to get players to actually play the buffing/healing class more instead of botting it. So, we'll have to be careful what we wish for.
