Nerfing Gurth is the only real solution as it is clearly causing problems in both PvE AND PvP.
Sadly, the Devs have already hand-waved the problem with Gurth away so yeah, good luck with that. Developer pride is going to kill this game long before any rival MMO ever does.
Not to mention developer apathy. Don't forget this was a shady behind-the-scene server-side nerf that none of us would have know about had a blue not brought it up in this thread. Had it not been mentioned we would have seen a lot of "I've been really unlucky with my gurth procs while the warrior in my raid is spawning tentacles left and right" posts.
The weapon itself is causing issues, but the fix was to one class that already has enough issues in PvP and PvE. This should have been discussed before the nerf and not after the fact.
