"Surge of Darkness and Mindbender are decent burst buttons and we're trying to redesign Insanity to provide a third."
Sorry, I know that this has been discussed thousands of times before, but I read this just now and it gave me the urge to go on top of a mountain and scream how stupid of an answer this is from the top of my lungs.
This is actually an answer to somebody's tweet concerning the lack of a dps cd.
So we're in a boss fight, there's a burn phase. And during that phase, all we can do is hope for a single spell proc or two (maybe three if we're extremely lucky), use an improved version of fiend that is more of a slight dps increase on a long run and definitely NOT a dps cd, or the new, "improved", solution for every problem that we had since the release, Mind Flay: Insanity, where we have a 6 second window to do better single target dps and deal with falling dots, off-the-cd MB, or even procced MBs through DI.
And while everybody and their parents know that PI is not an option for us because of the oh-so-horrible scaling problem that we have, it's kinda weird that they never say a word about it, leave aside trying to redesign it or fix our scaling problem. Even they don't see it as a burst dps cd for us considering that it wasn't amongst GC's answers for the lack of a burst cd. And this just amazes me after seeing him tweet that they're redesigning the talents that only a few people are using or none at all. Is there anyone actually using PI, or is it just me ignoring that?
