What make MW vulnerable to CC ?

Monk
I keep hearing MW are too vulnerable to CC since they have nothing to break it beside trinket but beside Hpal wich healer have a break CC abiliti ?
Abilitys that prevent/help with CC:
Shaman - Tremor Totem, Grounding Totem
Priest - Fear Ward, Phantasm, Shadow Word: Death (optional)
Druid - Shapeshift, powerful HoTs, Symbiosis
Paladin: Divine Shield, Hand of Sacrifice

Remind me if I'm forgetting anything.
There is also the lack of effective CC.

Positioning on paralyze to make it effective is kind of retarded + our aoe stun is unreliable.

Priest have Fade too wich is awesome, can't be targeted by range, yes please.

Also.. our defensive cooldown are very bad, life cocoon is dispelable, anyone with half a brain purge it and its GG.

Our Aura mastery from the pvp set have some latency issue on it, so sometime we get counterspelled anyway...
Abilitys that prevent/help with CC:

Shaman - Tremor Totem, Grounding Totem, Wind Shear, potentially SLT (super small extent)4pc SWG benefit
Priest - Fear Ward, Phantasm, Shadow Word: Death (optional), Spectral Guise, Void Shift(lesser extent, works like SW:D), Glyph of Inner Focus
Druid - Shapeshift, powerful HoTs, Symbiosis, Displacer Beast, Incarnation:Tree
Paladin: Divine Shield, Hand of Sacrifice, Devotion Aura, Hand of Freedom(lesser extent)

Remind me if I'm forgetting anything. Fixed as asked


Now watch someone else pickup something I might have missed out -_-

Druids: barkskin - usable while cc'd (stun fear whatever) :)
Don't forget the fact that other healers often have partners, since they typically are able to find people to arena with.

Monks are sadly unloved by their compatriots =(
