The ability cloak and dagger doesn't break roots and doesn't ignore los anymore. so this thread doesn't matter anymore
Aw. I wasn't really tempted to try it, but now it doesn't hold a candle to ShS in my (flawed, lol) mind.
But really, I wasn't trying to be rude (even though I was, sorry- I'm a flawed person). ShS has always given me the mobility I needed to kick/gouge my target/focus. I couldn't imagine how C&D could replace such functionality without burning all my CDs. I'm not a nelf, and don't want to burn a vanish to keep from being kited.
I guess C&D being nerfed shows that GC was, in fact, worried. I have to concede that you might have been correct. Time may tell? Maybe we'll see another version of C&D sometime in the future.
edit: Well played, btw. Maybe we should have more people like you on the dev/test play team. I guess the real challenge is coming up with a really good alternative to ShS that doesn't go too far. I like the idea of this tier being things that modify ShS, maybe that time will come. Blizz has never been great at making choices that are equivalent, this is why the new system (though easier, as should be) hasn't changed max/min speccing.
