anyways, we shadowpriests agree, dispel in its current form is too strong to be left alone, no one should be denying that fact, but on the other hand, people should not deny the fact that if its completely removed as blizzard has planned for it, without any compensation, we will suffer a lot in arenas.
Why should spriets be the only dps class that can dispell? kinda stupid.
do you want all dps classes, all healers, and for the sake of it, all tanks to be equal in all possible ways? thats indirectly what you are saying, and thats coming from someone playing the only class ingame with the ability to bubble. sounds like a really boring game you're hoping for.
back to the topic of shadowpriests in arenas - people are saying we will be fine, we'll just be more like other casters, and yeah, we will, but why would we want that? we didnt roll shadowpriests to be "almost a mage" or "almost a warlock", because we freaking rolled shadowpriests.
a solution? i dont really know, they put a six second cd on shamans dispel, would it be be too much to ask of something simular? the dispel change is (obviously) directed to the spamable CC a lot of classes can put out, which a spriest mindlessly can dispel, but giving dispel a cd (might want to be longer than six seconds, though)gives people a reason to bring spriests into comps post 4.1, as we have something other to bring to the table, though in a toned down matter as opposed to the no cd dispel spam.
i think it will also raise the skill cap as spriests are forced to really prio their dispels, as they'd be much more valuable.
