everyone has spammable crowd control? played a hunter... ever?

I doubt we'll be doing more damage in any other area than our AoE spells. Kings of AoE? Then help us survive regicide.

@K20. So very true. Cavaliers ho!

yeah.. because hunters don't have ice trap or anything. it might not be spammable.. but the cooldown is shorter than the duration making the hunter able to lock a mob out of combat. not to mention that you can ice trap any and all types of mobs. i call that a very strong kind of spammable CC.

Ice trap cooldown is 30 seconds, duration is 20 seconds. Only survival hunters can chain trap for an unlimited amount of time.

Slim, you have no idea what you are talking about. Unless you talent into survival, then your trap cooldown is longer than the trap duration. Also, traps can be resisted both at trap time, and anytime during the heartbeat ticks during the trap. The odds that a mob is held the whole 20 seconds is low. Keeping CC up as a hunter wastes valuable DPS time, and makes mages look like EZ-mode (which compared to hunters, they certainly are).

-_-' My first WoWInsider message and I balls it up. Typical. I didn't mean to make it a reply to Nupes' post. My bad.

@ Manatank:Mages on EZ mode compared to huntards? I know we're not the most complex of classes to raid DPS with, but since when did we have auto-shot, pet attack and an ability that automatically turned us to face the enemy? Unlike you auto-shotting goldfarmers, I can't go afk in a boss fight. Mages are hardly the hardest class to play in PvE, but compared to hunters we're Chuck Norris.Having said that, I will admit that hunter CC is harder unless for some bizarre reason you're specced wyvern sting. This is partly compensated for by having your own godamn tank.
