Depends. Assassins have a CC they can use from stealth without pulling a group. This is great if you are looking to sneak by something. Sorcs have whirlwind, which can be used during combat. A talent in the madness tree can make whirlwind an instant cast. Both have an identical stun and knockback.

Assassins get whirlwind too, just in pve theirs is 8 seconds, and they too can talent it to be instant in their madness tree.

Sorcerer gets instacast 60-second combat CC that CCs an elite + 2 normal additionals at the same time. Does this answer your question? (those extras are talents)

You are much better off taking the talent that makes it instant. You pretty much never need to CC a normal mob. The instant lift is better for PvE and PvP.

Unless youre soloing Heroic 2+s among other things. But we weren't discussing what makes sense, we were discussing who is better at crowd control, and the answer is clear in my opinion.

ps. My personal whirlwind has all the goodies.
