Please, be rational. No hunter is going to fucking scatter you, and pet CC is *very* unlikely. Hell, even silence should be saved for the healer if he's on the offensive. Any time one of those abilities is used on you that means you're WINNING, because that ability isn't going onto your healer.
Feign Death is also less effective than ever, considering how little you cast.
Was easier for a mage to handle hunters when they had a deadzone though. Now all you can do is run behind pillars and hope to god the swifty pet doesnt rape you while your healer is in a trap.
