Just read about this on MMO Champion. That'll make Symbiosis a lot less painful to use.
Well, 5.1 is still about 4 months away. It's still nice that they admit there was an issue.
HOTW nerf Tuesday is going to make life in general a lot more painful until then though.
Thank God they took it down to a 2 second cast, it was so painful where it was. Maybe now I'll stop getting those weird looks when I ask the tank to stop for a few to cast it.
OH THANK GOD. CANNOT tell you how many times that random pug went out of LoS from me or the damn tank pulled and put us in combat. So frustrating -_-
I feel like it should be instant still, but at least this is a change in the right direction. Yay.

But then you can simply drop combat with the arena partner that doesn't have Sym, swap Sym to them and get a new cooldown.
EX: You're running Feral/Spriest/HPal
You put Sym on the paladin at the start but you get forced to bubble early on. You manage to get a reset long enough for you and the priest to drop combat. You cast Symbiosis on them and get a new Dispersion CD.
Granted this is still possible with 2 second cast, but less likely. (AT LEAST IN MY HEAD OK)
Honestly my biggest complaint with Symbiosis is that it's pretty useless when you're solo questing which is what I'm doing on my druid now. Not that I used acsendance that much on my shaman, but if I needed a little more burst it was there. Leveling as a druid I can completely disregard that spell until I run some dungeons at 90.
