Cossa,
Yes, I believe there is a difference in the two spells.

Fetter:
Spell Type: Detrimental Skill: Alteration
Mana: 75 Target Type: Single
Casting Time: 1.75 Duration: 3.0 mins
Recast Time: 2 Resist: Magic (0)
Fizzle Time: 2.25 Range to target: 200
AE Radius: 0 Interruptable: Yes
Location: Any Time of Day: Any
Reflectable: Yes

Greater Fetter:
Spell Type: Detrimental Skill: Alteration
Mana: 140 Target Type: Single
Casting Time: 1.75 Duration: 3.0 mins
Recast Time: 2 Resist: Magic (-30)
Fizzle Time: 2.25 Range to target: 200
AE Radius: 0 Interruptable: Yes
Location: Any Time of Day: Any
Reflectable: Yes

For an additional 65 mana you can use Greater Fetter and get -30 to majic debuff on mob. To me that is like the equivelant of a minor tash built into this root spell (lowering the resistance to the root.) So hell yeah, more often than not when you use root you're in an emergency situation anyway, I personally will spend the extra mana to give root a better chance to land and hold the mob at bay.

Just my 2 cents.
Root ONLY... does not debuff

Posidius' post implies that Greater Fetter will also reduce the mob's magic resistance. This is not true. GF only roots the mob but it has a -30 magic resist adjustment. For example, if a mob has 100 magic resistance, when you cast this spell the mob effectively has only 70 magic resistance (after the -30 resist adjustment) against your Greater Fetter spell. This reduces the chance of the mob resisting your root.

I have used both fetter and Greater Fetter. Fetter seems to hold for the full duration more often than this root for some reason. Just my 2cp and what i have experienced.

What the hell is "Greater" about this one? Besides that is costs more mana, I would think one would use the level 58 Fetter. Same range, casting time and less mana. Unless this is more difficult for a mob to resist...

Now that we have the Lucy data we can see that this one is in fact less resistable (-30 MR). Answered my own question.
