If this question has been answered already I apologize, My question is, does serpent sting and black arrow have any dispel protection, because that is a major problem for survival in live for pvp which imo makes it very frustrating to play. I really want to play survival in mop because I have always enjoyed it over marks since vanilla. Also I haven't play beta or live in 3-4 months so i'm not completely up to date on how dispels will work in mop either.
dont have beta and i looked and found dispels have an 8 second cd and 3 of the 5 healers(pally,druid,monk) if im correct can dispel poisons. Why dont they make black arrow like Unstable affliction to help survival keep dots up on targets
Well, the simple answer is, SV hunters aren't going to be any good in a comp where BA is one of the only magic debuffs someone is going to want to cleanse. I can imagine SV being good with a lock or spriest, perhaps, where healers are gun shy on the dispels as it is, or timing it after magical disables are cleansed like sheep, HoJ, nova, etc.
I think the 8 sec cd on defensive dispels will help survival a LOT in arena. Because if the healer uses that dispel to take black arrow off the kill target, then he won't have a dispel available for any cc that is put on the other dps.
I strongly suspect that healers will decide to save their precious dispels for ccs. The hunter can help himself by running with a partner who has good dispellable ccs, which a bunch of classes do.
