Glyph of pillar of frost sucks. Sure you might be immune to everything but to not be able to move might be ok if we were a caster. We have nothing to root them in place, we might be able to snare them and keep them in range for one maybe two hits but it's definatly not worth it considering it takes up another glyph spot. The ability itself though is hilarious to watch as boomkins try to push you off mid in eots and you just slap therer dropped jaw afterwards.

The self-root is a perfect tradeoff for an extra cc break. At worst, you can use it as a quick cc-break and cancel the ability; at best, you can use it to beat down on an ensnared opponent or another melee class without fear of peels.

Sorry Zach, but I'm going to disagree. It seems like a waste of a glyph slot to me. I would use this CD either for burst or to prevent knock backs from boomkins or ele shams. In both situations the glyph hurts because DK's are melee classes and are severely hampered by snares.

@norm - your call entirely. the way i see it, you're trading mobility for immunity against fears, stuns, mind control, and polymorph effects. i think it's an acceptable trade. would you rather be rooted of your own volition? or crowd controlled at the whim of another player? your answer to that should determine whether the glyph is worth it.don't forget, you're STILL immune to knockbacks.there also isn't a major glyph for burst damage except for Glyph of Chains of Ice -- which you won't be using that much because you're probably better off using that Frost rune for Obliterate.

Actually, I would look at as an iceblock for DKs. If you have a macro you can use it to clear cc's, and when that guy runs away you can have a macro to get rid of it.

I'm sure there are circumstances where it can be usefull as you have mentioned but there are very curcumstantial. Zach remember we do have lichborne to keep of fears. If used correctly AMS can also keep off fears/sheep and mind control. Usually if a caster class like that is targeting me i engage them and if i see them casting that I'll use mind freeze, stragulate etc. But remember other classes have abilities that does this effect to us. This is somthing they want to happen to us, granted we say when it happens and not them but still. @ Arek: Nothing like an ice block, Ice block is more of a dump player threat ability. With this ability we still take damage. Sure you could use it to break cc, but I'd usually use my trinket (unless it can be broken by lichborne), if its a rogue cc'ing me ill get my ghoul to gnaw the rogue, use trinket, apply icebound fortitude. @ Both, it does have some uses for sure, but it's not worth al lthe trade off. What you are sacrificing is Mobility (very important in pvp, especially for melee), strength boost and a glyph slot.
