Many arena shadow priests have stopped DOTing

I have an idea, put a cooldown on dispels, that way they cannot be chain dispelled. All classes should be equal in damage(Obviously they are not). Regardless every class should be able to do good damage in its own niche. Those who cast dots should be on equal footing with those classes that do instant damage.

Except that that would wreak havoc on any PvE fights where multiple dispellable magic effects go out on the raid. It would require massive coordination on the part of the healers, and frankly, we have enough to deal with without having to call out who's dispelling who and yelling at each other for dispelling the wrong person and wasting their dispel cooldown. For that to not happen, any encounter with that would have to be changed.

Damn :(. Make all player dots undispellable then? Balance it for equality reasons of course. There is just no reason that a dot class should have trouble because of the timing of spells. I've seen healers in bgs just take the UA dispell debuff while dispelling, not even caring because they know it hits for @%@%. Something needs to be done, although I do believe affliction is already strong. Shadowpriests really need the help.

Honestly, they really should just make all player dots undispellable, in my opinion.

Then again, I don't PvP, I just want a solution that doesn't affect PvE in an adverse fashion.
