Crystal Shard/Frag suggestion

Okay, so the frag nerf went through last week to the dismay of sorcs everywhere, but hey, it is what it is.

I would like to propose a modification to the skill that reaches a sort of compromise.

Crystal Shard - Put the knockdown back on the base morph, I can't see why the base morph needed to be nerfed as well...
Crystal Fragments - Put the knockdown on the HARD CAST ONLY, while the 50% cheaper and 10% more damaging instant cast has the CC removed.
Crystal Blast - Lol

This ^ proposal keeps the spirit of the CWC frag nerf (where having a cheaper, instant cast, high damage, knockdown was considered OP) and works more in line with skills like dark flare (cast time, high damage, empower, defile), or snipe (cast time, high damage, CC from stealth, {defile/major fracture}?), but then has a class unique feature of forgoing the extra CC utility for an instant cast.

And before the wrecking blow comparison comes up, remember that hard casted frags can be bashed but dizzying swing cannot.

    Going to tell you what sorcs have been telling every other class since Morrowind: deal with it.
    Kiss the chaos.

    Frag stun nerfed but permablocking reflecting tanky DPS still around every corner

    Sorc loses evasion (which was a good change)

    The wrath nerf vis-a-vis these changes puts Msorcs in a worse spot vs heavy armor than they were before wrath was nerfed

    Hint: the heavy armor metatards already had the advantage

    So yeah, I'll take that frag stun back ZOS. Any day now...
