The Queue: More on crowd control {WoW}

Dec 15th 2010 12:03PM I respectfully disagree regarding the hierarchy of MC. There are definitely particular enemies that can benefit the party more MC'd than polymorphed, and other pulls where you just need the extra control, but the downsides outweigh the upsides most of the time:

- You're losing a DPS while the CC is going. This alone makes it less valuable than the others, except on the particular enemies that can replace the Shadow Priest's DPS or add that much utility (deadmines seems to have a nice large number of these; controlling the blood mage to give the tank half a million health is priceless)
- It still breaks quicker than every other CC, meaning it needs to be finessed to be re-MC'd or picked up often before the first one is dead.

There's going to be a grey area where your two remaining DPS can take out an enemy before the MC wears off, where Mind Control is a valuable addition. A little more than that and you'll be outgearing CC at all. Before that, it's not a trivial question whether the extra time taken to finish the pull is more costly to healer mana and total pull time than having the priest able to deal damage from the beginning of the fight.
