This particular nerf on wizards was much needed. A wizard with even a sliver of skill can pull off insane combinations that decimate most classes multiple times in a single fight. Even with an 8 block range on root, the caster can perform the skills icebolt, fireball, and bolt in quick succession without risking too much due to icebolt's affect on the enemy. After this chain of attacks they can blink away and rinse and repeat. Also, if a wizard is in trouble, they can blink to a higher, mostly unaccessible location for safety from most classes.
