You make a very good point. When forming a pug, asking for "good CC" is asking for trouble. What defines "good"? I've been in groups with hunters who have no clue how to trap. I've been in groups with hunters who only use Immolation and then wonder why the mob comes for them. /beat head on desk. Sadly, when all I have to do now is avoid pulling aggro, I can alt+tab during a boss fight and pay a bill, knowing that, as long as I don't pull your aggro, I'm fine. There is no skill. I know my job. If the mob breaks off, I got it for you and I'll hold it until you're ready to get it. If I can't freeze it, I'll kite it. Want it back? Okay, here I come with the mob after me. FD, it's yours. But you are right in that there aren't people who know all that and when pugging and you just want to run in, kill and run out, how can you audition your dps to find out if they can handle the inevitable oopses that come with a game? You can't of course, and it does make your job that much more stressful. If Blizz wants to give me the instance with the section of CC, I will relish each and every opportunity to chain freeze, to provide support to my tank, to make your burden a bit easier by getting one mob out of the way. And for the hunter who says, "OMG, I am so NOT going into that one", okay, don't. There are plenty of instances for you. So Mana, MD the skull and freeze the nipple? Got it.
