Resist gating is just as bad as Critical Mitigation gating was in the past. I was really surprised that the lesson wasn't learned the first time from the disaster that was crit mit. Just stack the raid with shamans and most other healers are SOL. Going to huge spike damage instead of heavy consistent damage just makes shamans necessary and most any other healer not as effective. Their wards can compensate for lack of resists/gear, but other healers don't have that luxury and most raid forces rely on that crutch. The FAR better mechanic was having Crit chance checks on mobs and instead of dying a horrible death without a shaman - you merely did less damage to the mob. Then all they need is a damage check and everyone is still able to do their role effectively.

I am pretty disappointed that the new expansion is going to be more of the same fail resist check mechanic.
