my question is about cleansing/purging/dispeliing choices for the healing classes.i recently emailed resto4life and asked if there was a logical reason that druids could remove curses and not diseases.a druid is a nature based healer (i have a resto druid and a friend has a holy pally and we joke that he gets his power from jesus and im just a tree hugging hell bound healing hippie) and you would think that in addition to poisons a druid would be able to heal diseases. if you needed any more evidence of such an idea, the cenarions in the old world spend much of their time cleansing both felwood and the plaguelands. a druid is inherently cenarion and the ability is something they should all take seriously.curses are often brought on by demons and warlocks. paladins are specifically designed to fight both undead and demons, so it would be logical if they were the ones in all their abilities to fight demons if they could remove curses. now i guess im also under the impression that a pally is a class brought on by the scourge and if they came as spreaders of disease, then the paladins would have spent time to learn to cure them.shaman are going to be able to remove poisons/curses/disease with a talent in the beta, and it seems that druids are being left in the dark with the ability to remove a disease.as much as the question is about the ideas of why druids who have spent countless man hours removing diseases from areas of old azeroth, it's also self serving. im scared to death of arena matches where a dk, with all their diseases, will completely negate some of our viability in 2v2 and 3v3
