I haven't watched the fight but what's so bad about starting with a CC?
CC stops the enemy movement so he could get close for illusionstorm. (use m.acc set during this part of the fight)
Then stun him and start debuffing without DoT's.
Meanwhile he most likely used removeshock because illusionstorm stun could stack all debuffs and aetherhold >dead.
So he will have to use removeshock.
Now when he has used his removeshock, why not re-CC him?
When he is re-CC'd and removeshock on cooldown use a full magicboost set and/ur magicboost increase buffs.
Now with lots of magicboost on you can do: delayedblast, magma/lava, aetherhold and any cleric would be dead from that damage.
So no, starting with a CC is not always a bad option.
If you can CC > STUN > RE-CC > it's a good way to fight clerics.
Also > again <
Vyana clearly said the fights were bad, teh enemies are bad..blabla so what's the point of discussing a sorc that did something bad when OP already said it was bad?
