Any sorcerors using this ability in pvp and it helping them? I just dont have it on my bar but interrupting a smiggler in the middle of his TRICKs seems like a MARVELOUS thing.

Have you used it in pvp succesfully?

Not? Why?
It is better to be feared than loved. Love is like a chain of obligation, and because man is sadly wicked it is broken at every opportunity to serve self interest. However fear is maintained by the dread of punishment which never abandons you.

I simply have it as a rotation filler. I think it sucks personally BUT I have seen it crit for 1500 or so. It seems to hardly ever stun players though if at all.
The truth is usually relevant only to those who benefit the most from it. But that's not always true.

Shock? Filler? Sucks? You mean the Shock that is instant cast on the move nuke which talented has a 45% to insta shock for additional 50% dmg? One of you don't have it on the bars? And the other says it sucks? Oh, wow... /facepalm

Shock does not stun players.

who cares if it stuns players, Its an instant cast...

DOT DOT, RUN AWAY instant cast, force lightning, instant cast run away....

Stay mobile and its one of your key abilities. As a madness build sorc its a god send. As a healer its great for tossing in some extra damage.

For PVE i can see this being worthless.

Electrocute then that darkness dot then that green ability dot then chain lightning shield the lightning buff then force lightning and shock and force lightning, rinse and repeat. Basically if you stack the 3 DoTs of players at first their health falls very fast. Chain lightning being the other DoT.

I assume that a "target" refers to anything that qualifies as a "target". In my experience, it hardly ever procs.

I don't see how it is "best" for interupts, it hardly ever stuns and the stun is conditional, electrocute and others are instant and work everytime.
