Tried root rot / VP rot several times in Ferrott and in HoT yard. Never had issues with resists, but I had root and especially VP not last for greater than 20 sec or so. Talking with other shaman in the guild, they were not experiencing this issue. VP worked normally in a group setting. Not sure what was going on. I did start with pulling with putrid decay when I was testing VP, so that shouldn't have been an issue. Have not gone back to older zones to test my problem out.

I know you are not a newb so forigive me for stating the obvious but it sounds like something you are doing is breaking root. Almost like something is putting a DD on the mob. Just to test this pull with Putrid Decay and then VP the mob and do nothing. See if it breaks in 20 seconds or lasts the full duration.

Also might want to list what mob in case it is casting something on you like a lifetap which I THINK is a negative DD on it.

Your problem with VP is most likely one of the caster procs (either on your weapon or augs). They with proc when you cast a dot and the small dd breaks root.

Yes I had this problem with one of the UF weap aug...
I also noticed that lifetaping mobs (sk / necro) are breaking root rather easily (fun time in VH to solo the tasks)...

A lifetap is a DD...

A few summoning mobs in Alkabor's zone :
- orcs
- goblins
- enraged mammoth

No summoning :
- rats
- beetle

So maybe rule is that animals do not summon, humanoid do ?

/rant on
What do you know about mammoth, you ugly troll ? Only Barbarians can speak about them and hunt them ;) !
/rant off
Anyway this mammoth (not sure if it is enraged or berseker) is a yellow con mammoth, other are 90, so I assume it is a special one, all barb shamys remember the mammoth sequence in everfrost, that why he summons (my theory).

EDIT: enraged mammoth does not summon, so it was berseker
