Personally give me a mage over a hunter any day traps break free early way way to early whenever I am tanking and the cooldown doesnt help.

No doubt that mages have the best of the CC options, but hunters have one solid advantage: Freezing trap works on all targets that aren't immune to CC. Beast, Humanoid, undead, untyped, mechanical...all trappable.

@ PlatSounds like you don't know too many good hunters.Also sounds like you don't know what you're talking about, but that's just me.Here's some advice before you go spouting classist gibberish like that - we have killer AC (for not wearing plate), can pull wayward mobs off of healers (and mages), keep more things trapped than you can shake a stick at, and best of all, serve mobs your way on a platter, and keep them on you, instead of letting them rip us to shreds. Misdirection + Feign Death for the motherlovin' win.(which, as I recall, Mages can't do, because if they see a mob running towards them, they generally pop Ice Block and wait for somebody to save their popsicle'd behinds)You're more than welcome to your preference towards Mages. I'm simply saying that, when things go south (and don't act as if they don't - it is not only possible, it is INEVITABLE), you want a good hunter instead of some dress-wearing pansy with a magic stick. Your repair bill will thank you.-Track

@TrackhoofNow who's the one spoutin' classist gibberish?Not all of us are iceblockin' fools...some of us 'dress wearin' pansies' know how to control our aggro. And on the off chance it does start looking at me with that homicidal glint in its eye, I go for the 'make the mob explode before it gets to me approach', which is something us magic stick wavin' fools tend to be fairly good at.

George, I can actually say that a mage works great in Kara.We have done the moroes fight without any priests, only CC would be a couple of mages.I also used to routinely kite one of the adds around the room, and by the time our dps had downed the other adds it was at 1/4 hp. And ice blocking then resheeping before that heroic mob 2-shots you and then 2-shots your healer is much better. Smart mages Ice block then immediately cancel so that we have the chance to get off the sheep.

Chances are your group may contain a mage _and_ a hunter, so you use both CCs - simple! In places like Shattered Halls it also helps to even have 3 CCs.
