And in what kinds of situations?
I've done a lot of sota in the 65-69 brackets and watching someone dispel my immolates while their dots tick on me is ..........................
On the other hand, both dispel spam and not feeling like it's even worth it to dispel is dumb.
It's so messy and complicated :(
dispells should have DR, making them not work is just pointless rng and makes fights for buff classes like priest/paladins and debuff classes like spriest/warlock, a gamble.
Increase the mana consumption of dispells by 100% and have it stack, lasting ~8 seconds or so, kind of the mage buff that i cant remember the name for.
dispels should only remove one effect at a time and cost something huge like 50% base mana or possibly more
dispels should be like wrath spellsteal - a self mana burn
bear in mind under this set up mage spellsteal, enh/ele shaman purge, and shadow priest dispel would need cooldowns

I have to admit, purge spam makes me rage hard. Especially now with resto shaman getting a defensive magic dispel. With the additional cast time polymorphs are much harder to find time for and are pretty easy to shock or GT. Even juking to force them to waste their shock CD makes me hold still too long and I've got a melee zerg in my lap with my defenses getting purged away faster than I can get them up. It's so frustrating to deal with a competent resto shaman in a group setting...
I'm not sure what should be done, perhaps all offensive dispels should be put on a short cooldown in addition to their cost? Maybe give a backlash defense (short duration garbage buff) to a few classes to punish dispel spammers?
