I just don't get these people saying thy want to return to turret mode. In pvp its impossible as it is with kjc, to chase down a flag carrier or healer with the 30% snare. Ive been waiting all this time for them to remove the snare not remove mobility... even in arena all people have to do is pillar hump and you can do NOTHING to stop them or get uptime on them.litterally all you have to do in pvp is run away from the lock and he is screwed. This change will compound that fact.
every other class has far too much mobility now or like mages the ability to remove that mobility almost completely. As others have mentioned hunters can move and cast freely as can ele shammies with a myriad of instant procs etc that we do not have. in arena even fake casting doesn't help esp when the other team can shove 4 interrupts silences and stuns down your throat. At least with kjc you can TRY to do some cc or dps while trying to reposition yourself. The chaos bolt nerfs have left destro only incinerate worth using and even then for laughable dmg with no pressure. Its like the people posting want locks to be worthless and are justifying them being made worthless simply because they want to roll over them even more on their mains. I like lock lore and play style though im not fond of the current form of affliction thanks to soul shard starvation( haven't played aflic since green fire patch ) Now I know many arena snobs dnt consider rbgs or bgs to "Matter" but for some of us they really matter and I just don't see anyone wanting to take locks to rbgs after this patch we will be the new retpally/arms wars. I can see no reason to continue playing lock after the change other than a martyr complex or these guys who seem to think being a "diehard noble loyal lock for life means more than my own kids lves o be alock yeh!!!" types.
As you can see this is my first post here and its only because im so pissed off at this.
