Why does it still exist?
Why does it still exist?
Why does warriors still exist?
Why does mages still exsist?
Why is Hibernate still in the game? Why is Fear still in the game and why can't I break it, unless I pop my trinket? I think you get my point
That said, instant Cyclone comes at a cost - 5 Combo points or a Nature's Swiftness that's on a 1 min CD. Sort of an emergency tool that, if spend on an instant clone, can't be spend on an instant 100k Healing Touch.
Not really sure why instant Cyclones is worse than instant fear or instant stuns tbh.
Of course this is in a perfect scenario assuming everyone's in range, but it's possible.

Cyclone is k. And the fact that you can't dispel it is k. Consider it a stun. k.
Cyclone is so unique I wish Blizz would not nerf it.
The counter to instant Cyclone is offensive dispel. Make sure to keep the Feral purged; then when his Predator's Swiftness buff comes up, you can purge it right off him.
That prevents him instant Cycloning, and frustrates him to no end.
Alternately, stay out of Cyclone range, it's 20 yards without glyph, 24 yards with.

Instant Cyclone is totally fine.
It is sometimes used to often. But getting a cd on it would be such a nerf for all Druid specs.
So again, Cyclone and instant Cyclones are fine. Totally.
I am a menace to my own destiny.
instead of crying about the imbalance - be the imbalance.
This again? Nice! Havent seen QQ about this for a few seasons. I guess its time to QQ about ferals again for even more nerfs. Great!
Instant Cyclone: Takes roughly 5 global cooldowns to get the buff(PS) that makes your next cyclone instant = not so instant.
The buff you get (PS) is dispellable and good players will dispell it.
There is no problem. Learn to play!
The only way to counter instant Cyclones is if you are training the feral, and you happen to have a shaman in the group.
you can heal a team mate thats cycloned right? if not make it so you can
That said, I'm still waiting for the OP to explain the difference between instant Cyclone and instant Fear?

How do you counter stuns and fears? How do you counter anything you can't interrupt? You LoS or you cc them right back.
Either put a 30-45 second cooldown on cyclone when casted with the cast time reduction buff, or make it castable in feral form.
