    Default Usefullness of Storm Shackle and Microburst in pve?

    Looking at the dominator tree, I came to wonder about just how significant an aoe spell this one could be, now that the Microburst talent no longer debuffs the base spell.

    Storm Shackle
    30 Meter Range
    100 Mana
    Casting Time: 2.0 Seconds
    Cooldown: 30.00 Seconds
    +13 Charge
    Roots the enemy for 3 seconds and surrounds them with constrained storm energy for 10 seconds. If the enemy moves the storm explodes, dealing 287 Air damage to up to 8 enemies within 7 meters and reducing their movement speed by 50% for 5 seconds.


    Microburst
    Allows your Storm Shackle to trigger an additional 2 times and increases its duration by 4 seconds.

    Edit: Wow. I'm bad at reading. I didn't see the "PvE part".

    It's good on bosses that have to be moved, otherwise it's a bit meh.

    along with bosses who move (and there's plenty of those) it's a perfectly credible instance trash aoe with either an obliging tank or careful use of Thunder Blast (not advised in an instance you don't know well or with jittery groupmates )

    tab to something tank isn't currently hitting but has aggro on. Shackle, blast, watch it run back and do ~3k aoe. Profit. (a melee mob or silenced caster). THis can clearly backfire if you don't know where you're knocking the thing. So don't give us a bad name with it <_<

    It's not useless, I've been running a dom/sc spec for Alsbeth and it has been very nice on the adds, but it isn't amazing on most fights. So it's situational , but when you do use it it's pretty awesome.
