Each class should have a CC ability IMO. Who has it?Rogue: Sap/blindMage: SheepPally: Hammer of Justice/RepentanceWarlock: Seduce (as lame as it is, it sometimes works)Priest: Shackle UndeadHunter: Traps (duh)Druid: CycloneShaman: Hmm...What's wrong with providing a CC ability to a class that's missing one? Nothing. QQ some more, Mage you're OP enough as it is. :P

KK, so many things wrong with that.* Hammer of Justice is a stun, not crowd control, you don't call cheap shot crowd control do you...* The only thing you mention for warlock is seduce, you're forgetting fear. Which arguably is THE STRONGEST form of crowd control in that you can take damage and it may not even break.* Shackle Undead would hardly be considered crowd control based on its limited use. You didn't mention pallies 'Turn Evil' did you... To mention phsycic scream would've been more correct.* Hunters have more CC depending on spec. Eg. Wyvern sting, scatter shot.if you're going to try and weigh up classes, do your research first!

with a feared mob running aruond like crazy and likely pulling more I consider fear to be the worst crowd "control" and very situational.

A decent lock knows how to pull the fear target back to give more room to move, and put up/take down Curse of Reck to stop dangerous flee paths.

Kat, Context > Research. You can nit pick about the minutia of what Radiophonic said all you want, you're not countering his overall point. For example, Hammer of Justice and Cheap shot can be classified however the hell you want, the point that you are missing is: Shaman have !NOTHING! like that. At best Shaman can slow someone down by 50% with frost shock. Thats it. They bring !NOTHING! to the table as far as crowd control goes. Not a two second, not a five, nor eight nor ten second one. So HOWEVER you want to category whatever it is you want to call it, Radio's point still isn't diminished. Shaman have nothing similar, and when they do get something that has limitations, (target can move and 1 min cooldown) you get people crying unfair. Make rogues' moves mana based, and take away Cheap shot, blind, and sap, then you're at the current CC level of Shaman, and tell me how unfair it is. Fug

HoJ nor Repentance are CC.The former's a stun, the other is a disorient. Neither a CC.

Same decent lock can't do any real dps though while fear+Curse of recklessness chaining, hence you've controlled one mob at the cost of one of your party....
