Tip #743: As noted in Tip #244, tea bags have an infinite variety of uses. However, there's always one jerk who will want to give you crap over drinking tea. Particularly if in a new town, use this as an opportunity to assert yourself. Any drunken idiot can win a bar fight. It takes a real man to win a bar fight while enjoying a cup of Earl Grey.
Enforcer has because trader can take nanoskills to cast rage or nt can restrain their rage. But a 4 minute cooldown is stupid. On my shade i get rooted can release and gwt rooted right after. Pointless nank in its current state as roots can damn near be spammed still.
It's not useless, it's an instant total removal and short immunity to roots that you didn't have before. Buy free movements, perk Spatial Displacement, use Might of the Revenent, buy breed change soli, etc.
Enforcers can use any rage to totally remove roots, once past TL4 or so can use the lowest rage even under debuff (which also removes all trader drains, btw). I'm pretty sure it also removes NT roots now.
The fact that shade doesn't have any built in defense for roots is your job to overcome. Because shade is exactly the sort of target roots were meant for - a melee opponent who will stun and perk you to death given the opportunity to get close.

Enfs dont deserve this nano as their NR is high enough that landing CC on them is difficult anyway+the amount of dmg they can absorb will break it in due course anyway.
Soldiers get this nano because their HHAB ability before 18.7 was THE origonal release me now buff, except it lasted longer. also they have relatively low NR so roots land almost 100% on them. soldiers deserve to keep this ability as its too easy to just root and hide out of LoS during ams.
Also NT roots hardly ever break this nano is needed to even give melee profs a slight chance to get in range before they are roflstomped by HP cap after HP cap every 3 seconds on the same AC by said NT. (edit garuks changed to energy AC for balance anyone?)

4min cooldown wtf? So much for the usefulness of this nano. Just get rooted again after the immunity. 30s cooldown please for this nano.
As someone who perked SD4 on keeper long before rebalance:
It was enough to deter people from bothering to try rooting you, however I lost 1 perk in reaver 2 in blessing and 1 in HM which were all heavy losses as we all know the last few perks in the line grant the most bonuses.
Ended up being able to kill the squishies that depended on CC to kill you like NTs, traders, mps etc.
However these days after rebalance, there is no such thing a keeper can realistically kill anymore so anti-root is moot.
