Spectral Guise change needed

So after a year of playing strictly Disc, I've starting learning shadow, and I'm not gonna go into how our survivability has been and is continuing to be nerfed into the ground (Grrrr), but with everything that's being taken a way from us (Void Shift), we are becoming quite frail. I believe there is a way we can balance this out though.

Fade used to drop target, that was OP sure (I loved it though). Now we have SG for that, great, but what the hell is with my True Form (TF) just standing there and taking the hits?
In any other game I've played (think DotA, Phantom Lancer) the "Clone" keeps moving in the original direction you were moving when you created it.

If you think about it, my TF shouldn't be able to stand still, it doesn't have the brain capacity to do so, nothing told it to stop moving!

IDK, this change would give us a nice boost in survivability, by helping us shake off pesky melees, without pushing us too far over the top.
At the very least, a change like this would increase the usage of SG to a point it could be further balance if needed.

TL;DR Give me something I can work with.

P.S. Wanted to post this in 'Suggestions' but couldn't find it. Plz move it over there if this is inappropriate here.

I think guise is fine, if someone wants to spend 3 globals on the image for pointless damage, that's great.

I'm not a fan of the moving guise though. Let's be fair, none of the other tier talents come close to competing with guise in PvP at the moment.

I am finding that most of the time my SG gets broken or I am knocked out of stealth as soon as I cast it.

Then you're probably using it randomly instead of using it to avoid CC, deep freezes, swaps and openers, ect.

Am I really hearing a shadowpriest complain about their survivability???? You guys really need to be brought back down to earth.

3.5/10, you'll get a reply from an upset shadow priest.

Yes, SG absolutely needs to be used correctly vs casters (i.e. dodging a poly). But it's completely useless vs a rogue or dk (WHICH EAT US ALIVE)... all this would do is increase viability vs melee, and actually give us a fighting chance vs those face nommers.
