this is true i think. I have noticed tho that OP have not answered to this thread now for a long time... it keeps going only on other posts... I get the feeling that he have accepted his defeat

Also, Gunnery Commandos and Arsenal Mercs are the MMO definition of a spellcaster, gun or not. They're ranged, they have a mix of instants, channels, and cast-time spells, they're a spellcaster.

Crowd Control abilities aren't stuns. Stuns are a form of Crowd Control, but most of the time CC is a designation for long-form crowd control used as a pacification tool to remove a mob entirely from combat for a lengthy period of time. Another word used commonly for this is Mez, for the Mesmerize spell employed in Everquest.

Bringing a dead player back to life is a Rez, short for Resurrection, another old spell name.

Nobody cares if you don't like these or not, or how accurate you think they are. Applying real world logic to MMO Jargon doesn't matter.

Without a doubt, the BEST response in this entire thread!! As far as CC goes...Look at it like the difference between Jacuzzi's(Stun) vs hot tubs(Crowd Control). ALL Jacuzzi's are hot tubs, but not all Hot tubs are Jacuzzi's! CC is generally termed for ALL abilities that take an enemy out of consideration.....if only temporarily.
General Ka D'Argo: THAT is your plan? To hit him with a rock, when they have these, like, shield things?

Not WoW terms, these are MMO terms, RPG terms, or even just plain gaming terms in general. Not WoW terms.
