Why are provokers excluded from taking part in the invasions?

    I really don't understand the thinking in excluding provokers from this event. Provoking is difficulty based now, right? So if you want to limit bards, make it harder to provoke these creatures. Don't exclude them altogether. I hate that my provoker is active now but can't take part in the new content.

    Can't disco or provo, and I haven't tested it, but you probably can't peace either. We've been reduced to being buffbots.

    I get very disappointed when an entire class of character meant for PvM gets excluded from a PvM event cycle. There will always be templates that are better or worse for certain things and not all classes should be equal for every mob, but to be excluded by game design is horrible and stupid.

    With the Halloween content, my Legendary provoker can typically provoke a zombie skeleton onto a butcher, but one they get to fighting and their skills go up, it gets very difficult to provoke them onto each other again. I'm fine with that. At least I have a chance and I can plan accordingly. Provoking zombie skeletons onto each other is night impossible. It's like a 1% chance seemingly, but again at least I have a chance. Having no chance whatsoever is just not cool.
