Being that charge is part of the diminishing returns, it really screws up the effectiveness in opening with a shield slam/concussion blow, and I almost want to hesitate using my cb/shockwave on opponents after just charging them and save it for another target...

Does anyone have any good strategies for adapting to these lame mechanics?

If I see an opportunity I will usually target another player next to the person I want to kill, or the persons pet, and then switch to my real target for some stuns but thats pretty situational...

Cry on the forums till blizzard fixes it? :(

Not much we can do, 15 seconds DR is too much to not use shockwave

It's 15 seconds DR? I thought it was 10... no wonder some of my stuns are so short after 11 or 12 seconds

What really sucks is the stun is there to hold the target in place while we cover the distance. Rarely do we actually end up at a target that's stunned.

Of course with lag and charge's shoddy targetting, we can end up 5 yards short of our target because the stun didn't get applied before our charge course was plotted.

Sometimes I wish they had made it like the Rogue's shadow step, where you just appear at the target. At least I don't hear rogues complaining about lag ruining that ability (I could be wrong). That would also help with the DR problem.

In pulls using charge. I usually use it to ster the mobs...I have healer pop PoM charge and turn the mob the rest of the mob to where I want them when the rest gets to me I TC and back them into a cone for SW and that's my signal for DPS to have at it.

Then stun is really a bonus holding it in place til I get there. I wouldn't trade the ability to charge in combat now to any stun no matter how long it lasts.

They could add a (minor) glyph to allow the removal of the stun for something else. +5 or +10 initial rage would be outstanding I think.
