Question about Hunter Freezing Trap CC

Postby Enthrall » Fri Jul 15, 2016 11:05 pm

Hi

Hunters are very annoying, as we all may know. Especially when you aren't aware of what you can/cannot do against them.

When A Hunter Freezes me the tooltip calls it a stun.

My 25% resist racial does not work against this trap.

My insignia of the Horde, which says it removes all stun, does not work against this trap.

Free action potions, which gives the user immunity to stun effects, does not work against this trap.

Is this blizzlike? I am genuinely curious as I don't have retail experience with that ability.

Old wowwiki calls it a Sleep Effect,

http://wowwiki.wikia.com/wiki/Crowd_con ... did=346886

And the article for Sleep Effects states:

where the character is unable to act for the duration of the ability or until dealt damage of any kind (in contrast to Stun where damage doesn't break the effect).

http://wowwiki.wikia.com/wiki/Sleep_Effect

It isn't actually a sleep effect but works like one (or like a charm, same different in this case?), and it probably just made more sense for the tooltip to say "stunned" rather than "slept" for that sort of thing. As to why it doesn't say "frozen" or something, who knows ;)

Can't be removed with will of the forsaken, so it's not a sleep. Many effects in vanilla say stun that aren't stuns though, gouge etc, it's just one of those things.

If you want to get it off you, frost reflector or SOID your way out.

It was/is its own special affect, and as far as I can recall didn't share DR with any other CC. It wasn't a stun, it wasn't a sleep. It was simply a magic debuff that trapped you.

Freezing trap doesnt have and afaik shouldnt have any category classification like stun/sleep/fear.
Its simply a frost-school magic debuff that prevents character control.
You guys seem to think that all cc must inherently belong to a category when that isnt true at all. ^^
Better known as Stromgar nowadays
