Yeah and CSing an enhancement shaman's Nature school should also disarm him and make him unable to use any skills whatsoever for 6 seconds.
Many important shaman abilities are locked out. The fact that ferals had absolutely no downside to being locked out is stupid. And while you mention it, silences AND disarms cripple an enhancement shaman, whereas both do nothing to a feral.
I don't think you "saw what I did there" in my earlier post. The point was your comparison was not only bad, but also meaningless. Different classes bring different types of cc, damage, and utility to the table and that's how it should be! I've been playing druid for 8 years because I just loved the idea of a shapeshifting, mobile, hybrid that left form often to perform other tasks like healing/cc. Now we don't even leave form to clone, and that's awful to me.
Cyclone has been a druid core mechanic since BC, and without it druids really lose their niche as a class in arena. I can't see why anyone would chose one over hpally/rshaman after the change to DRs for almost every comp I can think of that Rdruids shine in and I really can't see why they would choose feral over one of the other classes who share our DRs.
I don't think a casted clone is OP and I REALLY don't think a 30(s) CD for ferals to just CAST clone (ONCE THIS DR IS IMPLEMENTED) is cool at all. I AGREE that unavoidable (via instant) CC that also can't be dispelled is pretty dumb without a CD and I can't stress this point enough. They should still let us cast it though. Hell, just ditch instant clones all together! Maybe just let us use it with NS every min? I really don't care as long as I can still CAST cyclone. Any player can interrupt, cc me, out range, or just LOS it.
The point of the comparison was that you went off on a rant about what other abilities shamans have, but obviously neglected to leave out the very powerful other abilities druids have.
I don't have a problem with druids being able to cast clone without it being on a cooldown so long as they leave shape to do it and if they get CS'd on it then they stand there unable to shapeshift for 6 seconds. The fact that if they get countered while doing it has no downside other than that they didn't land the CC is stupid.
