    Deterrence vs. Dispersion

    Do you guys want to hear something funny?

    In the next patch the hunter skill 'Deterrence' will be a better ability then Dispersion in PvP

    Deterrence - Baseline ability
    vs
    Dispersion - 51 pt. ability

    Deterrence is avoidance of damage coming from the front. Any one with an ability that puts them behind the hunter completely bypasses it. Also, it only deflects damage. So any stun or immobilize effect can allow you to get behind the hunter.

    Dispersion is usable while stunned and feared. It reduces damage from all directions and refunds mana.

    I feel dispersion should also heal (i was VERY disappointed when I logged on the PTR and they removed the healing) but its still better than Deterrence.

    Except on Paladins when they Avenging Wrath, or those random Chaos Bolts, or or or... *list goes on*
    What's the point of damage reduction if there are ways to completely ignore it in the first place?
