    IF yes, then mindbender 100% staple talent for healing priests.

    If no, then OMG Shadowfiend + Mindbender + Hymn of Hope = DEAR GOD

    DAT MANA

    Double the damage and double the mana generation.

    The damage is roughly the dubble and the mana gained is twice as high (33% to 66%)

    So no +x% talents any more? *sigh*
    Nice animation but pretty boring effect imo. Replaces shadowfiend with, wait for it, the same thing! I'll take archangel.

    You can take more mana from Mindbender, and use that mana to heal, or take archangel, and use that to heal for more, with less mana. Choices. Mmmm

    It's still interesting.. kinda. But it would be less lame if you for example just buffed shadowfiend to summon two of them at once.
    Model and name are both lame.

    I don't care how much of a DPS increase this ends up being compared to the other choices - this talent is dull, lacks creativity, and I find it insulting that they think this is appropriate.

    Thanks to Lilliputia for the amazing signature!

    It may lack creativity but it's better than archangel and From darkness comes light by a mile if you're a healer especially on the starting tier where spirit numbers aren't gonna be impressive.
    As it is now mindbender + hymn of hope gets you from almost no mana to almost full at lvl 87 which beats the crap out of the other 2 alternatives.

    I don't see the level 45 talents staying this way for long. As other have said, this will be the talent of choice for healers between the 3. Hehe, I do like the model they used.

    btw at which lvl we may take talent for ours octopus ?

    I think this will be the go to talent for heals, but for shadow I still think its a toss up, I'm leaning towards from darkness comes light myself.

    Same here for now. Presently, it seems to proc a lot. Generally I'm leery of damage on a 4-minute cooldown. I take it when I can get it but given choices, if it works out to be roughly the same, I'll take a proc.

    FDCL does not seem to proc from SW:P ticks currently, so the proc rate might become a lot higher if/when that gets fixed. As for Mindbender, I'm not sure why Blizzard seems to think giving priests inordinately long cooldown spells constitutes as "fun". Void Shift being bumped to 6 minutes, the 4 minutes on ShadowBenderMindFiend thing. Granted Mind Flay reduces the cooldown on that but given how clunky the rotation is right now I don't find myself flaying very much.
