You fail to mention the Sap! We Rogues need love too you know, Mike. And frankly I'm just as much itching to sneak into certain death situations just to crack one mob over the head to knock him out temporarily as any Mage is to fire off a sheep! Just thought I'd throw that in there ; )On topic, I agree, I miss the control over the instance that CC brought and certainly the added challenge, particularly in bringing together a not so perfect (so-to-speak) PUG with limited CC ability and still making it through the instance being able to adapt to what was needed.~Rilandune

/agreeAnd I'm quite sure that all the comments about "CC is not hard" are from the same idiots who pull before a Sap. It only works out of combat, people. Let your Rogues do their jobs once in a while.Not everyone is an AoE damage dealer or a Tank, but you wouldn't guess that by looking at a majority of posts here.

Some of us still prize our CCers and rely on them to keep even just a single mob at bay while we tank and spank the rest into dust.Am I well geared and pro enough to tank 4 or more mobs at once? Sure. Is my healer l33t enough to heal me through the damage? You bet.I try to use the unique skills of everyone in the party to our advantage, without adding significantly to our run time or otherwise gimping us, and if CCing a mob or two takes them out of play long enough to prevent a player death or wipe (corpse drags & added repair bills anyone?) then it's a win for everyone.
