*Freezing Trap: Can be tricky to use in combat. Hunter should freeze before all other CC except Sap. Hunter can freeze a second target when cooldown is up. Also, distracting shot can be used in tandem to more reliably CC things post-pull.
**Sap: Can only be used out of combat; rogue should sap before all CC. Recommended
***Fear: All undead NPCs are immune to fear. If warlock has fear glyphed, target will stand in place rather than running away.
