    Dispelling specific

    Hello

    I'm not expecting it to be possible, but I could be pleasantly surprised. As title says I'm curious to know if it's possible to make a macro that tries to dispel a specific buff from another player first instead of working your way through all the others. Like the priests power word: shield, or similar shields

    I think it is random what gets dispelled, could be wrong though.

    If you could choose what to dispel, it would make dispel proctection, like the silence on Unstable Affliction, completely irrelevant in the game.

    Dispels should just take everything away, this is stupid and always was. It does not add anything to fighting dragons, and vs players it makes dispel just another random stuff on top of random procs that can randomly critical hit which might add another random procs that you randomly dispel, loads of fun... right.

    Don't dispells dispell all effects of that kind?
    While Diogenes was relaxing in the sunlight in the morning, Alexander, thrilled to meet the famous philosopher, asked if there was any favour he might do for him. Diogenes replied, "Yes, stand out of my sunlight". Alexander then declared, "If I were not Alexander, then I should wish to be Diogenes", to which Diogenes replied, "If I were not Diogenes, I should also wish to be Diogenes."

    I don't really know, to be exact I'm playing hunter in pvp and our tranquilizing shot only removes 1 rage or 1 magic effect at a time

    Offensive dispels still only dispel one thing at a time. Defensive Dispels remove every effect that it can dispel, all at once.

    I.E You are casting Tranq shot on a target with 2 enrage effects, and 3 magical. You have to tranq 5 times to dispel everything.

    You are casting Remove Corruption on a target with 2 poison effects, 2 curse effects, and 3 magical effects. Everything gets dispeled at the same time.
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    Wrong, Tranq Shot removes one of each, not one or the other, so 3 tranqs would suffice in this case.
    My old solo stuff can be seen on Twitch and Youtube

    Defensive dispels remove all effects since mop, offensive dispells still remove 1 in time like in cata.
