Combat with revealing strike and five combo points can stun you for 8 seconds with a kidney shot. But combat is mostly useless outside of spree- I believe it to be viable, but the numbers don't exactly agree with me much.
Blizzard already said stuns are the most powerfull form of cc in the game and they are supposed to be scary.
They're also rather brain-numbingly simple to apply, and I believe Blizzard will be reviewing CC like blanket silences and stuns (particularly physical ones, which are un-dispellable) in the future. If they are so powerful, they should be highly limited and rare, which is the exact opposite of the current situation.
What I really love as a Warlock is rogue opening on you with Garrote silence, trololo after that Paralytic poison procs for 4 sec, followed by a 6 sec Kidney. But mostly I can deal with rogues just fine but that's just ridiculous.
and if your abilities are on cooldown, and theirs aren't, how is that a problem with the stun in the first place? that's simply them being prepared, and you not being so.
Because the ridiculous amount of cc and damage by some comps makes it easier to throw out pressure like there's no tomorrow. I said 2 melee, but even a Ret with full cd's up can take you to school in 5 seconds.

Similar to above, the amount of cc sometimes makes that ridiculous. You even see it in some of the top player's streams.
