Guide on dispelling >magic<

Post#1 » 13 Mar 2016 13:39

Hello.

I decided to write a guide on how to dispel for paladins and priests after having to stay in full polymorphs / frost traps etc during battlegrounds, it seems people need to learn what dispelling means and how it is used. Note that this guide is only for magic, I won't go into curses etc.

There are two kinds of dispels - on allies and on enemies.

Dispels that can be cast on allies:

  • Dispel Magic of a priest
  • Mass Dispel of a priest
  • Cleanse of a paladin
  • Devour Magic of a warlock's felhunter

Dispels that can be cast on enemies:
  • Dispel Magic of a priest
  • Mass Dispel of a priest
  • Purge of a shaman
  • Spellsteal of a mage
  • Devour Magic of a warlock's felhunter
  • Tranquilizing Shot of a hunter
  • Shield Slam of a warrior
  • Shattering Throw of a warrior

Image


Things you should dispel off your friends while fighting each of these classes:

Death Knight: Chains of Ice, Hungering Cold, Strangulate, Mark of Blood
Paladin: Hammer of Justice, Repentance, Judgement of Justice
Warrior: -

Hunter: Silencing Shot, Freezing Arrow, Web/pinch abilities if he has spider/crab pets, Entrapment, any other trap effects, Hunter's Mark
Shaman: Earthbind Totem's root & slow, frost shock

Rogue: -
Druid: Entangling Roots, Insect Swarm, Faerie Fire

Priest: Psychic Scream, Psychic Horror, Silence, Shadow Word: Pain
Warlock: Shadowfury, Immolate (to avoid conflagrate), Shadowflame (to avoid conflagrate and it is likely to be glyphed for extra slow), Seduction, Fear, Howl of Terror
Mage: Polymorph, Deep Freeze, Freeze, Frostbolt, Slow, Dragon's Breath, Living Bomb(situational)

Image


It's almost always beneficial to dispel your enemy whenever you can. Make sure to put your dispel in a close key. Dispelling is one of the most gamebreaking mechanics in World of Warcraft, and honestly, everyone should start doing it. I'll still give a list of things you should be looking to dispel.

Death Knight: -
Warrior: -
Paladin: Sacred Shield, Hand of "...", Divine Sacrifice, Divine Protection(can also be removed by Shattering Throw along with other dispels), Divine Shield (can only be broken by Shattering Throw or Mass Dispel), Blessing of "...", Avenging Wrath, Righteous Fury (in PvP, most of the paladins have a talent that reduces damage taken by %6)

Hunter: -
Shaman: Lightning / Earth / Water shield, Elemental Mastery, Bloodlust/Heroism

Druid: Gift/Mark of the Wild, Thorns, any form of heal over time spell (except for Lifebloom!), Innervate
Rogue: -

Mage: Ice Barrier, Mana Shield, Frost/Fire Ward, Icy Veins, Focus Magic, Arcane/Dalaran Intellect/Brilliance
Warlock: Backlash, Nether Protection
Priest: Power Word:"..." (especially shield), Power Infusion, Prayer of Mending, any of the beneficial priest talents

That's it for this guide, once again I don't claim that this is the best information available and it's certainly open to discussion. I may have missed out some parts since there are lots of stuff that you need to know when it comes to 10 classes and 30 talent trees. Hope this was helpful to some people.

Nice guide that should be forwared to most ally rets. I will add that druid FF should be dispelled from rogues as they can't restealth with it.
Also disc buffs have 95% dispel resist through pain supression, Its not worth to try to dispel it unless you are RNGesus himself.

Kinda useless to try to dispel earth shield since it's retarded and takes charges instead of the whole buff unless you have something crucial to dispel like predatory (jk it gets protected by earth shield anyways).

learn to sac bro...fuck your team. if theres one thing ive gotten used to while playing on here, dont expect your teammates to do shit.

non-relevant: in 6 years of playing ive managed to spell steal pain supp once.
"he cant even base a shit + he is worst pvp player in here and he tells us we are bad in pvp this is nonesense its like Englez will say that virdo is bad in leading raids and in pve and after virdo asks him why he say that and for what reason englez will say 'i dont want to destroy your statements ive been there done that etc' "-Balanced 2015

Stand idle + Dispel 1372363 magics from team mate = get rekt by smourne warrior infront of you

ez tact ez game


no but rly tho, some of those magics shouldnt be dispelled unless cleared combat due to low ticks and/or low duration.
CC's counted in the obvious list ofc

i've got 2 sacs 'bro', after both of them are gone I can't sac shit. also the fact that I have sac doesn't justify some paladin/priest's failure to dispel me

needs more colours to make it look pretty, so it's easier to digest

just want to bump this so maybe someone is able to get some information. battlegrounds are still filled with priests and paladins that suck shit at dispelling polymorph and/or freezing arrow q.q

Could be useful.

Tired of joining a BG as hpala and look at disc priests, or any priest overall, just standing there while I have to dispel/HoF like crazy
