First, when i refer to cast, i mean having to stop and channel/charge up a spell, instant casts like healing sphere i dont really refer to as casts.
Above is a crudely made video from last night after raids. I was arguing with one of the rogues in the video's that mistweaver are stupid easy to kill in pvp (going off the assumption they were using soothing mist a lot, since i dont pvp anymore, and that's what i was told MW healing strategy was). I told the rogue to duel me on my mistweaver (which i benched for a resto shaman) to duel me so i could show him how easy it is to kill us within one lockout. I tried to heal as i heard other MW's were healing like and would get locked out and killed in seconds. Then i switched to the healing method you see in the video. This is not a display of skill, simply a display of what i view as wildly broken mechanics.
Throughout the video i only cast one spell, during one duel, which was CJL since i was close to killing the mage, but was being kited.
The rogues had ~70% epic pvp gear, the rest would be blue pvp gear. The mage and warlock had ~500 PvE ilvl. Neither me nor the mage and warlock have a lot of PvP experience, however, the rogues pvp frequently. At some point throughout the movie i inspect both rogues in their gear.
I am not super experienced in PvP as a mistweaver, but being able to survive without giving dps an opportunity to lock me out (outside of stuns/blanket silence) once seems very very broken.
I invite experience pvp mistweavers to discuss this video, perhaps explanations as to why this worked (not in bg's, therefor no healing debuff?), and maybe why i've heard of no mistweavers trying out this method of healing?
edit: i accidentally show the first duel twice
