Very situational but I still agree with you
For PvE, you don't really run around chasing mobs all the time other than mostly KQs. Everything else in the game however has less mobility than my grandma.
Just sit still and smash keys.
As for PvP..Well it is extremely annoying. For a spectre especially is almost impossible to catch a mage or archer.
Not to mention the pointless long animation on some skills that ironically drop your DPS
