I've seen this several times now.

A random guy running around with a mentored bard on auto follow just for the buffs.

Can't kill the mentor cause mentoring doesn't quite reduce his durability enough.

All the while the mentee keeps wailing on you with powerful buffs.

Just like priests cant heal, tanks cant taunt and mages cant cast spells while taunted buffs shouldnt apply to mentees either.

So for the sake of consistency I think this should be fixed.

Yup, lets take away every thing a toon can do when they mentor so no one wants to.  That's a perfect fix for the problem.  Make people not want to mentor and it goes away!

Just like priests cant heal (actually they can still group heal, druid regen, etc), tanks cant taunt and mages cant cast spells while taunted buffs shouldnt apply to mentees either.

Mentoring for the purposes of PvP should not be possible in any way. This has got nothing to do with mentoring for pve content as the buffs would still take effect.

As soon as you enter PvP combat however any advantage provided by having a mentor in your group should be nullified.

i agree  peeps running with a mentored buff bot is unfair in pvp . i ran into a inquisitor with a mentored illy or coercer in T2 pvp and couldnt harm the inq at all and he was doing some extreame damage back .. he had some speed casting buffs on him along with some other high lvl buffs from the mentored.
