Vanish is meant to put you back into stealth.It increases stealth to such a level for a few seconds you will not be seen.However it is broken so:- Attacks in the air still hit and break it- Attacks made during the time span of clicking vanish and the effect occuring still hit, breaking it- Targeting is not dropped all the time though the rogue has a stealth level much greater than any detectable level and may be hit by an effect used after they vanished including standard melee attacks.- Pets of all kinds do not drop target and will give chase, hit, and remove stealthRemember vanish is a hinge ability.It's an advanced form of feign death.It used to have a reagent cost on top of the cool down, now dropped to 3 minutes, because it was intended to be a strong ability.In the case of a resnare, note that vanish can break while the animation is running thus giving none of its benefits but burning a 3 minute timer.In comparison to a heal, well if you cast it and lost the health due to a hit, that's normal mechanics. You gained the benefit of your ability. Vanish breaking is often complete happen stance and does not give you the benefit of the ability.As to how it's known to be broken is that Blizzard has admitted that it is broken and has been for a very long time. They have been trying to fix it but have been wary of how they do so or it will become over powered.
