    CCing Lei Shi's Protectors

    Just sitting at work and not working, and this question popped into my head. Can I root the protectors with void tendrils/frost nova/earth grab etc? Checked on Icy Veins but it doesn't mention these spells.

    Yes. The only issue is that if your raid isn't in the habit of moving away from these rooted protectors they will eat melee hits and potentially die. Earthgrab is fantastic for doing this. The other issue is that some of those roots will break if someone looks at them funny. We mainly use it to keep them controlled in the period between spawning and a better cc option being placed on them.

    Yeah that's really what I wanted to use it for. We've been downing this boss for weeks now, but if something is gonna go wrong in ToES, its this phase. Thank you for the response.

    I assume a shaman's CC spell for elementals also works?

    I still spam our healers with Hand of Protection & Salvation when the adds appear, hoping they are picked up/CC'd by the time the effects wear off. :P

    It does, but sadly not the best if you're raid group likes multidotting.

    Best bet are hard cc's.
