If you're so inclined the entire community would be thankful if you could make a forum version! I know people have been wanting a good one since Talbadar's went out of date on AJ. A version here for sure and a version on HowtoPriest.com if you find the time :)

Good suggestion. I'll try to do it during spring break next week :D
Thank You!

The community has a void there for far too long. I can speak on behalf of us in saying Thank You for tackling this.
Suddenly, so happy in the pants.

I'm not sure what this means in context.
Appreciate the effort, but I think some things are worth noting:

-Psyfiend, in RBGs, is easily killed with the amount of AoE going out, namely if the other team as a destro lock. I think roots are the better option, it counters melee cleaves, allows your team to pull back on FC maps, you root in a solar beam (can't be dispelled), and peel for healers.

-FDCL has a terrible, terrible proc rate right now. I tried rolling it a few nights ago and got maybe 10 procs throughout a full WSG while maintaining VT on 3 targets. Personally, insanity is still the best option. It is usually towards the bottom of my damage done, but really the amount of burst it provides is unreal. FDCL might be the better option in a dot cleave, which aren't too common.

-Angelic Bulwark > Spectral Guise in RBGs. If they switch hard to you it gives you a few seconds reaction time to disperse, or give your healers some time to catch up on the damage. I can't really think of many good uses for spectral guise, I mean, it takes you off targets, but BGTargets is there for a reason.

-Halo is usually a talent I cannot live without for RBGs. Cascade, I feel, is too random in its bounces to knock people off the flag. It has a shorter cooldown, but it does a lot less damage and doesn't always achieve results. Halo is usually in my top 3 for damage and does tons of RBG healing. It will also knock people off nodes.

Arena build is not bad though, I like it.

I saw your plan to steal him away to the H2P forum, and revitalize the PvP section xD

Edit:

Also I would recommend checking your luck with FDCL. Apparently they unnerfed it recently, so perhaps your results may vary.
quick question should I use Power infusion or divine insight?
DI for RBGs for sure.
