Cloak, evasion, and riposte just need to be on gcd like other defensives.

No.

And cloak was a thing in TBC, not Vanilla. Nerfing an ability by increasing the cooldown isn't really a nerf, considering how good of a defensive & offensive option it is. You can lower it, I don't care about that. What I care about is not being able to do anything within that window when they pop cloak of shadows during their offensive cooldowns to prevent any damage or cc.

The frustration is similar to a melee dps getting disarmed by a boomy.

mhm sure

Faerie Swarm PvP Talent
30 yd range
Instant 30 sec cooldown
Requires Druid (Balance)
Requires level 1
Swarms the target with Faeries, disarming the enemy, preventing the use of any weapons or shield and reducing movement speed by 30% for 8 sec.


Cloak of Shadows
Instant 2 min cooldown
Requires Rogue
Requires level 80
Provides a moment of magic immunity, instantly removing all harmful spell effects. The cloak lingers, causing you to resist harmful spells for 5 sec.


are you seriously comparing a 30s cd, 8s duration disarm to a 2min cd, 5s duration spell immunity?
there's nothing op about cloak of shadows... learn to play around it, like every melee does with disarm.
maybe you're getting too "frustated" by it and forgetting to play decently.

Take my damage. Don't take my toolkit.
