Previously, it was okay for melee to not have an instant gap closer because casters had to sit still and cast. Now, with their instants doing as much as our instants, but with a 40 yard range, the melee specs without an instant gap closer are struggling.
A caster is allowed 100% "uptime" on their targets. In other words, they can pretty much deal damage to their chosen target 100% of the time. meanwhile i consider myself lucky if i hit a mage with crusader strike.
Its simply unfair that i have to spend (example) 10 seconds to get the the target, while during that whole time im getting my face melted.
I believe that shadow step should be baseline, and enchance and ret get an instant gap closer. Doesnt have to be as powerful as the others, but its simply unfair that certain specs have to rely on their "w" key to deal damage.
EDIT: THIS IS NOT ABOUT RET PALLYS ITS ABOUT MELEE UPTIME VS CASTERS. Please be mindful of this when posting. Thank you.
