It does not break when you take the damage.
Fear breaks on "X" amount of damage, the problem is that the "X" damage amount is too high, or it could just be set for a higher level of gear
Let's add psychic scream nerf ontop of all the other nerfs shadow is getting.

Because it's unreasonable for a CC to break on damage.

Polymorph, hunter traps, and blinds say hi
the damage
I like how everyone complaining about fear on this thread has an out, racial or an immunity for it.
I've had fear break on 10% of my health pool, then I have had other times where I have been hit with double chaos bolt crits and it didn't break. !@#$ is broke yo

Let's add stuns to that list as well then? I don't enjoy getting killed in a stun either.

Also: All of the CC you just listed either breaks on damage or needs a trinket. Do you know how many counters to fear there are?
Stuns > Fear.

Stop using the "well stuns dont break on damage either" arguement... they arent supposed to break on damage. fears are.

I was doing 2's last night.... running rsham/feral against ret/disc.... they overlapped psychic scream and fist of justice on me at the same time. so im in a full fear and a full stun.

The ret pops cooldowns on me and dps's with no peels from feral (i had full hots on me, wasnt in trouble, didnt need peels)

The stun ended before the fear broke. took me down from 100% with ES/HST/Riptide to 40% before psychic scream broke....
Fear's strength has always been it forces repositioning...sometimes good, sometimes bad. It still breaks on damage and even breaks on absorbs. Did some testing w' friends. Only time I got fear to not break on damage was with dark bargain up on myself and being test feared/attacked by a spriest. Everything else is breaking it. Only time its going to break late is during server:client lag issues.

Fear is the most countered CC in game. Especially now in the era of instant CC that doesn't break on damage. In 5.2 all the lock fears are going to be casted so outside of howl don't expect fears to be useable vs cleaves, esp cleaves w' a rsham.
nerf fear, also nerf cyclone, in a fear you can be healed still, that doesnt break.
nerf rogues stuns, they dont break.
break dks aphyxiate, that doesnt break
see what im doing? im saying how half the ccs dont break no matter the dmg


And how much did you pay for your rbg rating?

because its the strongest cc in the game.

You dont see every class and spec with immunities to hex because its not necessary...

I've been saying this for months. Its why Locks will tell you fear breaks immediately and everyone else says it never breaks. The threshold breaks at random times. Its very broken. Only consistent fear break imo is warriors fear. Thats the only one that actually breaks when its supposed to.
Fear literally never breaks lol.
