Can Paladins Bubble when silenced

Paladin
I was under the assumption that paladins can bubble when silenced, the only time they can not is when cycloned or when their holy tree has been interrupted (school lockout). A ret pally friend of mine insists that he can't bubble when blanket silenced or strangulated or that monk interrupt. We went out a dueled and sure enough he couldn't bubble when blanketed.. or so he says... if this is true when did this change take place?
I tested this with a friend once. Being a fellow belf, he used Arcane Torrent before I hit bubble. Apparently, even in the 2 seconds of silence, I could still cast bubble. I'm not quite sure how that works out now, but I think overall silences still affect the ability to cast bubble.
you can always bubble. it's like a pvp trinket that protects you from all damage and cc
there are only a few things that prevent bubble, GCD is the biggest culprit.
You can bubble when silenced. However you CANNOT bubble if the holy tree is locked out. Blanket silences we can break, lockouts we cannot.

Iceblock functions the same way.
That's what I thought, not sure what he was smoking.

You can't be cycloned while bubbled, but you can't bubble while cycloned. That's the only exception that comes to mind, other than the aforementioned lockouts.

Falling victim to(*) a lockout is the second most noticeable culprit.
When the school is interrupted, no.

If we're just silenced, stunned, feared, polymorphed, etc then yes, we can bubble.

And like you said if we're cycloned we can't bubble either :/ Yet we can trinket out of cyclone >.<
