mindbender pvp?

Priest
so yeah I was just tinkering around with some crap and decided to try mindbener out and it was hitting for 14k average with 26k crits with a 1min cool down I was thinking that might not be too bad for arenas and wpvp but not so much for RBG's whats are your opinions?
Shadowfiend actually hits a little harder IIRC, although longer CD. Mind bender is still generally better for playing offensively due to shorter cd, but unfortunately it's not as good for other things.

Someone still somehow mentioned that FDCL doesn't return as much mana as mind bender in PVP but they didn't back it up so I'm ridiculously skeptical. Mind bender seems incredibly poor in PVP.
I advise you not to use mindbender, I will literally stop and target it the second it pops and 1-2 shot it. Decent burst cd but it can be cc'd/killed and becomes uselsess. FDCL is a much better option.

If you take it for the mana return you are foolish.(as shadow) Vampiric touch will give you all the mana you need, that is if you play spriest right.
And no, shadowfiend does not hit harder than a mindbender. Read the tooltip.

Mindbender does 75% of the damage Fiend does. For "burst" the fiend will do more damage, but mindbender does more damage the longer the fights last OVERALL b/c you can use it more often.

Tooltip is wrong.

I think they buffed it up to 80% a while ago.
Personal preference I'd say. Although I prefer FDCL more because I get trained a lot still and like keeping up consistent damage on the move
