Only 3 advanced classes can CC?

As a tank, I want to learn who can do long term crowd control abilities and found this link very useful:

http://www.swtorarena.com/topic/91-k...rol-abilities/

Am I reading it right, that there are [EDIT] FOUR 60 second crowd control abilities in the game? vis:

Shadow (Assassin): Mindmaze (Mind Trap)

Scoundrel (Operative): Tranquiliser (Sleeping Dart)

Commando (Merc): Concussive round (Concussive missile)

Sage (Sorcerer): Force lift (Whirlwind)

For droids, there are 60 second CC abilities from:

Sentinel (Marauder): Disable droid

Smuggler (Agent): Slice droid

I know there is a myriad of shorter term abilities, but I am thinking of the kind of abilities that a group might want to coordinate in advance of a pull.


EDITS: Originally written from a Republic point of view, sorry. Empire names now in brackets. Force lift/whirlwind added. Anti-droid CC added.

Operative has slice droid (60 sec hold on a droid) or sleeping dart (60 sec on organic)

Sages can force lift a single target for a minute. It upgrades to the longer duration after choosing the advanced class.

Thanks for the quick responses. So would I be correct in saying that all healers can do long term (60 second) CC? E.g. for Republic, Commando can use concussive round; sage can forcelift; and scoundrel can use tranquiliser? So there would always be at least one long term CC ability in each four man party? That's neat.

Shadow tanks get a nice bonus with mind maze.

I am not seeing a pattern in which dps ACs can CC. I guess a better way of remembering who can CC is to think if they can heal and remembering about Shadow's bonus.

Bounty hunters can CC for 1 minute too. Forgot the move but it dazes the mob for 60 seconds (any damage breaks it) same thing as commandos pretty much.

The Assassin gets the base duration on Whirlwind which is 8 seconds. The Sorcerer gets the upgraded 60 second Whirlwind.

Sentinels also get Disable Droid, a melee range 60s CC for droids.

Whirlwind is not an Advanced Class skill for Sith Inquisitor, every Inquisitor has it afaik.
