Keep the pvp shenanigans out of the PvE thread. That hunter trolled you, and you jumped right in and took the bait. Next time, just let the mods handle it.

Although priests may have the worst active mana-regen as you claim (which wouldn't be by much if true) they have the best passive regen.
Complaining about viper sting is a little on the funny side to me after playing a hunter in level 70 arenas against priests and being burned dry within 3 GCDs.
That's why they nerfed how mana-burn works to be a % mechanic so hybrids would be a lot more resilient against it, and that's why they gave paladins a 50% duration on curses and shamans curse removal?
Disease cleansing is completely crap compared to poison removal.
Abilities that shut down certain classes completely are dumb.
