Well.. you should help him them!
I'm just curious, where you make a good use of your LC!?
Quoted directly from my guide:
- There are many ways to use CL effectively. Here are some of my favorite situations:
Scenario #1: Everyone from both teams is bunched together in an area of mass chaos. You're on the perimeter and going largely unnoticed, so you approach one of your enemies from behind, and... ZAP! Everyone (or nearly everyone) on the enemy team is brought down to the ground and stunned, giving your teammates a chance to escape locks/combos and regroup for a brutal counter assault.
Scenario #2: You see a teammate caught in an AoE lock/combo, but if you rush in and try to use debuffs to help free them, you're likely to get caught up in the carnage, yourself. SOLUTION! You maintain a safe distance from the enemy, leaving just enough room to hit them with CL, and save your teammate without actually entering the enemy's attack range. This is particularly effective when a teammate is being attacked by two or more enemies simultaneously -- just be aware that one of them might break away to come after you.
Scenario #3: You're on a team with another shaman. Either you or your buddy manages to catch an enemy with CL, locking them down. Time for some MASSIVE DAMAGE! Start X-spamming the target (ALWAYS from BEHIND, to avoid lag/block/evade-induced counterattacks) while it is stunned by CL, and together, you should make short work of it. ALSO! If you see another enemy approaching to interrupt the CL, whoever is X-spamming can either try to detain them with Frog or use CL on the initial target in such a way that it will be difficult for the enemy to interrupt both you and the other shaman at once. Taking turns CL-ing the first target and dealing with the second, you may be able to keep the lock going a bit longer (or, if you're lucky, you may be able to catch the second enemy in your lock, as well).
Scenario #4: You're all alone, being hunted by two or more enemies. If escape is not an option, you can try to fool them into a CL stun or try to catch one of them off guard while they are using a skill. Both are risky, but doing something is better than doing nothing. Laying down a Quagmire or landing a hit with Freeze can make it a bit easier, so keep those options in mind.
Scenario #5: You made a mistake. You jumped or dashed and landed yourself right in the path of a warmage's Blizzard or Snow Blues (Penguin) attack. But you notice that you're at just the right range, and with a split-second decision, you use CL and catch the warmage in a CL stun just before you are frozen -- and the best part is, it will continue throughout the duration of the freeze effect and even after it wears off, meaning you'll be in prime position to make a hasty getaway or keep the warmage locked down for a teammate to deal with.
Scenario #6: You're in an Emporia War (EW), and your teammates are hacking away at an enemy sub-core or the enemy's main core when you see members of the enemy team closing in to interrupt their progress. You line yourself up with the core, hit it with CL, and TAH-DAH! Any enemy who gets too close is likely to be stunned and left helpless to attack or defend. HOWEVER! The enemy team will usually catch on to this pretty quickly, so don't get too comfortable. Always be ready to make some evasive maneuvers.
These are just a few of the many situations in which CL can prove extremely useful, but it should be enough to get you thinking. Just keep in mind that CL will always leave you vulnerable in one way or another, so never let your guard down.
Aya, you strike me as a PvE-focused person. If that is the case, then yes, CL isn't particularly useful (not since they nerfed it, anyways). But in PvP, there are tons of uses for it, only a few of which are listed here.
