New beacon sneaking is a bit better, but still not something what would make me say "wow that rocks man". Cras don't rock right now.
And back to my suggestion. If it concerns you in pvp, you could be clever enough to stay 1 cell away from cra thus no buff is triggered. In pvm, a 2 ap 2 mp and 50-100 dodge buff is enough just to cover up the cost of walking away from the locker mob.
Cras have no opportunity to backstab stuff, they need to keep a 7 cell distance to get a decent dmg buff, let them have at least something good, geez.
