Some seem obvious, but this choice has me trying to decide which I would prefer. If I go Mindbender I still have the good old Shadowfiend I believe, but then the question is do I take Misery to automatically apply Shadow Word Pain to targets by casting Vampiric Touch. Which would also enable my AoE from Mind Flay. I think it may depend on the cast time involved, and exactly how much threat do I really want to pull. The nice thing about Mind Sear was you knew what you were using it for, a big radius AoE. In Suramar city, it was not something you ever used. Certainly not in any content that is current. I don’t see these new changes as being 100% absolute you should take this. I see some things that could get you killed if not careful. Definitely will have to try and see which is more in tune with how I prefer to play.
