MW complete lack of stun protection

Monk
The biggest issue Mistweavers (MW) face in the 3v3 arena environment is their inability to recover after being stunned and focused down. Our defensive cooldowns (CDs) simply aren't usable when we are stunned, and more often then not we won't make it out alive.This situation forces us to rely on our partners to save us for every stun swap on us when the enemy uses CDs. However, better opponents can cross crowd control (CC) our partners, and we are dead in the water.
MW are a squishy spec that has always been susceptible to stuns, which is why in the past we have always had ways to deal with them. Way of the Crane broke and made us immune to stuns, Healing Elixirs procced while stunned, Dematerialize made us dodge all attacks and spells for 2 seconds after stuns, Nimble Brew was a trinket for stuns, and Life Cocoon was usable while stunned. Since these have been removed we have no CDs whatsoever to deal with being stunned and killed. Essentially, we have the surviveability of a resto druid without Bear Form, or being able to use bark Skin while stunned.
TLDR: Please consider an option for MW to survive stuns on our own, whether that be one of the old ways we did it, or an entirely new one. It really wasn't fun this season, feeling absolutely helpless dying in stuns, and I really want something done about this in 8.1 so the next season isn't so miserable. Thanks.
Great post. Please atleast let us pop cds while stunned.
Agreed. I'm about to race change back to Orc just for the stun DR racial...
Best way to do this is make dematerialize a PvP talent. Don't make LC while stunned since it makes us harder CC targets (can still emergency heal your DPS while in kidney).

This is good compromise since we already have lots of PvP talents we could use so it's an active choice and not default.
Supposedly a lot of people are using that trinket off mythraxx for thebshield is gives, idk how nice it would be for a MW, or what the shield amount would be in pvp, but it might help.
Demateralize was absurdly broken back in MoP, and would be a huge issue today as well.

I do think Life Cocoon while stunned should be part of Chrysalis.

All they have to do is reduce the DR. I think it was 50% DR back in MoP? I'd settle for a 25% DR now.
Dematerialize wasn't DR. It was a 100% miss chance for 2.5 seconds when stunned.
Just let us use fort brew or lc whilst stunned.

Dematerialize would be nice, but I highly doubt that would come back.
