Void tendrils or psyfiend pvp (shadow)?!
09/27/2012 08:23 PMPosted by GuinthelMC all the way, Void Tendrils have amazing uses for reducing enemy team mobility. Psyfiend is pretty lacklustre outside of BGs, solo questing or world PvP; it DR's Psychic scream, only fears targets that are currently attacking the Priest (meaning it isn't much use for peels) and won't fear if you are attacked by a target after you pop it.
Couldn't disagree more. Psyfiend is one of the best peeling tools in the game right now, even with DR's it is solely able lock down 2 targets at once for a few seconds, leaving smokebombed or deepfreezed healers without peels. You can toss it around LOS to cc dps/healers without giving up LOS. It DOES fear targets that are NOT currently attacking the priest (I don't know why people keep saying it won't, when if you do a few wargames it obviously does...).
Don't be fooled by no-nothing mage here, psyfiend is a fantastic talent, much more reliable than the situational MC or the flimsy roots that get broken instantly.
My Roots don't get broken instantly. I've kited DKs/Wars/Rogues with them. Combine that with normal Fear+Fade+Mind Flay and most melee can't get to you with Tendrils. Also prevents those people who want to LoS from getting away since they have to kill the Tendrils. I'm absolutely loving Tendrils even more after getting more use out of them than Psyfiend.
