Well Chemicalbros, def checks isn't always everything....there is the better duration and lesser chance of breaking on attack and nano attack. the 2% difference in break chance could mean the different between getting another shot off or having to attempt to root again (or run).
Another thing is that the def check between this and the previous root isn't all that huge (depending on what your fighting). For the most part unless your talking about a target with over 2000 to 2500+ NR, anything less than that won't resist either this or the previous root majority of the time.....for pvp, it's different of course...but either way you cut it, the lower the NR and/or level of the target, the smaller the difference in the def checks.
So in the end, if Leisurely Interrogation lands, this one will land just as often....when that happens, the smaller chance to break on attack can make a difference.
More importantly, when it comes to these attack/defense checks, what I find more important is how high you can get your own nano skills that the nano uses....the higher your nano skills the more effective the nano regardless of the def checks...that's because you can scale up nano buffs much higher and faster than NR and level does....heck level check of 12% on previous root is nothing really....a level 220 mob would only produce an extra 26.4 extra defense towards the nano....so sure previous nano has better def checks, but in most cases, it won't make that nano any better than this one
