    While Mana Burn doesn't have a CD, it has a pretty long cast time, warlock is a channel. Most healers have the excuse of not having a good interrupt.. but didn't you say you were a resto shaman? Just interrupt it when you see them casting/channeling.

    That is true, but if mana burn had a cooldown i would feel so useless, since healer priests dont have an interupt, mana burn is the only thing they have vs casters, and thats even hard to pull off more than 1. it has a 3.5 second cast time, if a caster lets you get more than 2 of those off in a row, they are going to lose wether or not you have mana burn. it also costs the priest a lot of mana, usually in arena, if ive got to heal myself or my team mate, and cast some mana burns, i go oom pretty quick aswell.
    Too cool for a signature

    when i did arena and played my resto shaman, id always laugh at disc priests trying to mana burn me. interrupt their heals, ground the mana burns (LoS when its on CD). priest would always go oom coz of mana burn.

    Can we have 1 sticky with "no one care if u have trouble with mana burn"
    and
    sting from hunter was removed because class changed mana in focus and it was istant, making u regain mana
    drain mana was istant and make u regain mana

    Mana Burn have 2sec + cast, u lose mana too, and is easy avoidable

    So let be get this straight...OP is a Shaman that can break every form of priest CC, got mana burned, STILL WON THE MATCH, and now mana burn needs a nerf because OP didn't win with full mana?

    Does anyone else see the problem with this?

    It's annoying but far from op, as a resto shaman I allways feel that disc are bored in 2s, they are trying to annoy you with fear mc and mana burn but we can easely avoid all this with los, shear, grouding ...
    I hate fighting against disc not because of this but because they don't have to cast heals at all, the only thing I'm interupting are ofensive spells and i feel useless.

    Well, my opinion is that Mana Burn is absolutely NOT op in the slightest. If anything, it could stand to go back to a 1.5 sec cast and burn less mana. At least then one of them might go off from time to time instead of having literally every single one interrupted by the warrior/dk/rogue/shaman humping you the entire fight.

    Purge ?? why would I give disc a free manaburn ??

    And from my experience disc cast less than sham and palys .... as for druids I don't care they just suck...

    My point .... I have no point, 2s with healers are most of the time long and boring.

    Purging = burning mana most of the time, you should choose wisely what and when to purge if you don't want to loose by being oom after 2 min.

    As Shaman - DK the priest really can't mana burn....

    The spell isnt OP at all it's so easy to avoid, interupt.
    Leave priests alone >

    do you healer have some issue with that mana burn? What do you think of it?
    so...uh... you won right?

    The thing is, that you can easily avoid them. If you cant avoid them, use wind shear for the cast and run for LOS (line of sight). It's really important to avoid going to the middle of the arena where you can easily get CC'd and burned, instead, use pillars etc. for your advantage. As a shamane and priest player, I can say you should be able to avoid them, if your wind shear is on cooldown, ask your DK to grip/silence/mindfreeze the priest.

    ITT: bads who die against one-shot baddies / bads who get mana drained because they cant los / bads who grinds arenas for cap and feel they have a say when it comes to arena

    stop killing our game you cancerous losers, and stick to raiding.

    Just don't stand in the open. Hug the wall like a champ and if you get feared call out mana burns and ask your partner/partners to help you and mana burn is nothing compared to what drain mana was.

    There's nothing wrong with manaburn, you guys are either playing horrible brackets (2s) or you're bad. Pick the one that fits you. Btw to those you that are bad here's a tip; Use line of sight, manaburn takes forever to cast!
