Cataclysm changes to the dispel mechanics

In a nutshell:

  • In Cataclysm, each healing class will be able to dispel 3 out of the 5 types of debuffs.
  • Opportunity cost of dispelling will go up.
  • Protection and retribution paladins will lose their ability to dispel magic.
  • All shamans lose dispel disease and poison, resto shamans gain dispel magic.
  • When possible, dispels will be combined into a single action (ie: on ability to dispel magic, poisons, and curses).
