Lack of dispel protection is not a problem. This may come as news to some players, but dispel protection does not exist any more. Moonfire and Insect Swarm have no dispel protection, yet multi-DoTing targets is still a viable and powerful tool for balance druid PvP. Demonology has no dispel protection for any of it's DoTs or debuffs, mages have no dispel protection for any of their debuffs, and the list goes on. The only class with any absolute dispel protection are Death Knights. Affliction and Shadow Priests have deterrents from dispels, but they are not any means of absolute protection. What is it that you would be looking for with Destruction? You aren't ever going to get the RNG "Immolate has X chance to not be dispelled" back. So, what, do you want a talent which allows Immolate to stun targets if dispelled? Is that "protection?" Healers will merely dispel it, eat the stun, and then go about not caring. The dispel system in of itself is entirely broken, but to proclaim that it is the dispel system alone that is holding back Destruction's PvP play, then you are grossly mistaken. Getting off an Immolate and Conflag is not nearly as difficult as players make it out to be, it can easily be done, particularly in RBGs. Working with other players to stun lock, Fear, Silence, or in many other ways disable a healer to allow the time it takes to cast Immolate and then Conflag is the least of Destruction's worries. Dispels need to be changed, but they aren't what's holding back Destruction the most in PvP right now.
