I have a bruiser, i think drag is a great spell...but not when im on my guardian and im being dragged away from a contested mob and falling through the world everytime.  Is drag supposed to be an instance kill? Please fix this issue that has existed every since the new skill was introduced in the game, yes last Novemeber.   Also this skill is way too powerful in blocking one guild from killing a contested mob, this seems obvious.  Does it make sense that one person can be camped out on a contested mob, log in with immunity, and immediately drag the main tank out of range from heals or through a crowd of adds, resulting in a raid wipe.

The confusion comes from the post sounding like he wants drag nerfed because it's overpowered for wiping a raid.</p><p>As for the being dragged under the world, it has happened to a few people now. I think it just comes from lag while running along inclined surfaces. Our tank got lucky one day. He said he was dragged and then began falling through the world, but there was 1 tick of drag left and it brought him back. </p>

Quite irrelavent though, considering a proper name need not conform to any language rules.

This is why you need to have a wizard squad to deal with people who interfere with contested kills.
