What needs to be done is simple.
They're removed shitloads of CC from casters, and they made sure that casters can't stunlock people and instead only offer polymorph-like CC qualities to their team ( like, SPriests can't "stun" anyone with Psy Horror anymore and still do damage to them, and have Fear on 45 sec cd ; Mages can't "stun" someone with Deep Freeze and still do damage, list goes on ). Basically the days of Deep Freeze into Psy Horror are over.
The main problem with the above paragraph is that from what I've heard and seen, mobility of melee classes is still unhindered. Without the ability to stun them and do your damage, casters will face the problem of melee simply running away and playing defensive until CC on their healer is over, giving a big middle finger to every caster out there that doesn't have a stun ( surprise - none do ).
And on the other hand, melees retain their current abilites. Warrior can still Fear while focus stormbolting or shockwaving people. Monks can still leg sweep/ox wave and they can still Paralyze.TL;DR - casters got fucked with the ability prune. It's time for melee classes to get fucked with the ability prune. Except rogues, rogues are fine ( only remove BoS ).
And as for inevitable comments about "wizard overlords" from melee peasants - the problem with castercleaves is that once stats start hitting on gear, casters outscale melee. Have balanced gear, have balanced game. Simple as that.
