Getting charmed / pushed off of cliffs.

Battlegrounds
I was just in eye of the storm. And this one shadow priest kept mind controlling me and running me off the cliff. That happened about 5 times. And I saw her doing it to more than one person. There would be several ally vs several horde, and one by one she would charm, run them off the cliff, rinse and repeat..wiping out an entire group of people. I wouldn't even have to be near the cliff, I could be at a base, and she'd get as close to the edge as she could to still be able to charm me, and she'd run me the full 30 yards from me to her, and then another 30 yards from her to the edge.

Arathi basin, every time I'm at lumber mill I'm either mind controlled off of the cliff, or pushed off of the cliff by a druid.

this is absolutely ridiculous. and I know dam well she was sitting there laughing getting a kick out of, when there's ABSOLUTELY NOTHING I COULD DO.
All she had to do is press ONE, just one, a single button, wait a second or two for the cast, and she has has managed to kill an otherwise difficult to kill healer.

I kept putting my hand on that hot stove no matter how many times I got burned.

CS, Iceblock, or DF don't stop a 2.5 sec cast? Can't Slowfall from LM?
The priest mind control a long cast time and the priest is defenseless while controlling their target. If you can't be bothered to interupt it, you need a teammate to do it or at least put some pressure on the priest.

The druid typhoon is instant on a fairly short cooldown, but it only works if you're standing fairly close to the edge. The shaman thundershock is what you have to watch out for. It punts you a pretty good distance.

And in all that time, not one of that "entire group" thought to attack the priest? I'd probably be laughing too.
To the OP this is a classic Learn 2 Play issue.

Nothing you could do? Absolutely nothing? You couldn't counterspell them? Trinket the mind control? Stun them with deep freeze? Ice block?
I play with it when I can and it is not guaranteed to work. There could be a small rock or hill that stops the thunderstorm thing. It is hard to position your-self correctly for a push to land you in the pit.

For the charm I do not see it as a big deal. I think it only happened to me like 2-3 times with all the bgs I played so that should show others are right by saying it is easy to stop.

I prefer to see the steamroller creeping at me but make no effort to get out of the way then blame the DoT.
