GC currently (on live) Vampiric Touch don't return mana when hit shielded targets, is this intent? Also, dispelling VT causes it to diminish return itself and Psychic Horror intended as well? I think it devaluate the dispel protection.
The first part (vs. shields) is a bug and now fixed. The second part (the dispel DR) is intended.

UA dispel doesn't DR itself, nor does it DR with other silences.

VT also protects SW: Pain, which is 13k + 9k = 22k mana, each is the triple  of warlock dots and nether tempest.(Corruption: 3.7k mana)
If you don't play with a mage, the other healer has nothing else to dispel. It's not like oh VT dispel, lets insta reapply, it's a cast;If you are getting trained, you have to go through 2 interrupts and 2 stuns(sometimes more if double melee etc) + the pushback. So once you get VT back up again, the dispel cd is either over or ends in 2 seconds. So you burn another 22k mana to get 6k mana back.
To give you some idea how expensive priest spells are:
-Mindblast 9k -Shield: 18.3k -Dispel: 8k -Massdispel:40k -Prayer of mending: 8k -Psyfiend: 12k -Sw: pain: 13k
-Vampiric Touch:9k

You go oom so hard when people train you and dispel VT on cd. It's not only that, you barely get your orbs to use psychic horror, result: immune.
Everything depending on a spell(dmg procs too) that has no dispel protection, making the enemy team immune to one of your spells is just bad design.

This is not intended, if it was intended why did they spend so many months to fix it on cata? It just randomly bugged again, they said fuck it we are gonna nerf shadow anyway, so let this be one of the nerfs, now we won't have to debug DRs of VT for months.
Same way psyfiend and shadowfiend suddenly became demons lol.

It shouldn't DR with either. It's our main source to get mana from and it doesn't even do dmg like UA does. Why would it DR?

Have you tried putting VT's up with a warrior up your butt?

I agree for the dmg part if they actually do intend to keep it DRing. It should at least do the dmg that UA does. Or give us 10% of our mana back instead upon dispel. That would actually fix it more than anything. Would give an actual penalty for spam dispelling our DoTs.

To burn 10% of the enemy's mana would be overpowered though.

Priest
- We are sympathetic to the argument that we have been schizophrenic (to use the term incorrectly) in the Shadow PvP 4pc VT dispel bonus. Originally the enemy strategy was to just "get it over with" and dispel VT until the horror went on DR. We changed the way dispels work so that isn't much of a strategy these days, however the dispel is still in the hands of the enemy and not the Shadow priest, which we agree makes the DR extra punitive. We also think we've hit Shadow hard enough in PvP that this nerf isn't required, so we're going to remove the DR from the Horror proc from VT dispels.

Amazing how fast they change their mind.
