So whatever happened to those dispel nerfs?

100 Human Paladin
One of the big changes in MoP was that dispels were supposed to be a bit of a choice, or at the very least require some thought, rather than just spamming them endlessly. While they certainly did this with defensive dispels (which may not have been the best decision considering the current status of World of Youcan'tdothatwhileCraft), they just left offensive dispels alone- if anything, they're even more spammable than before due to the new mana regen mechanics. Even after a good 10 seconds of hearing that stupid "fwoosh" noise as a mage steals every possible raid buff at the start of a bg, it doesn't even make a dent in their mana bar.

Why did they stop halfway with the dispel changes, when offensive dispels were arguably the more powerful of the two types to begin with?

Basically. Ask yourself, who dose changing defensive dispels to have an 8s cd benefit most? Mages.

I dont even bother killing mages. I just dispel spam them and hope my allies kill them for me.

This was pointed out in beta multiple times.
The reality is simply that mages are at the top of the totem pole, regardless of what content you're playing. And this design is clearly intended.
