    Sorry, I'm not saying Mind sear is balanced (or even good) compared other AoE from other classes.

    You're missing out on at least 20% damage by not keeping Empowering Shadows up. It's not hard to do so, but it does take some effort. You can get 4-5 Mind Sear casts off in one ES buff duration, which amounts to ~20 seconds. That should be enough for all the large AoE packs in current content. If it isn't, that's where RNG comes into play, and hurts us.

    I only ever use mind sear on adds that should die within 15-20s, and only then if there's more than 8 in a pack (Whelps, 9 Aberrations, Lava Parasites, 2nd + Fester Blood). Everything else is just multidotted.

    Dark Evangelism does not affect Mind Sear. Just tested it myself, was hitting for just under 1500 with or without Dark Evangelism stacks. Hit Empowering Shadows and it started hitting for just under 2k. (made sure it wasn't other procs)

    It's strange that Empowered Shadows affects Mind Sear at all, considering Empowered Shadow says "Periodic Damage" and Mind Sear is not considered Periodic/DoT tick damage.

    My guess is that Mind Sear is considered Periodic Damage for the same reason Mind Flay is.

    I'm pretty Empowered Shadow affects Mind Sear. My joke is bulletproof .
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? Who knows? Who cares?
    I hope shadowfiend will still be able to do damage in 3.1., it's my second "nuke" button next to Inner Focus!

    Leap of faith:
    Good news everyone, we can now heal stupidity!

    We're still weak on AE, but at least 4.1 will offer some help for Spreist AE. =/

    Didn't Blizzard get a 50 or 70% dmg buff? Obviously it's not only spriests that gets buffed.

    Indeed, it looks like a lot of the trainer skill AoE abilities are getting increased so that there is not such a massive difference between "AoE" specs and normal ones. Multi-Shot also got increased. It makes sense, "Bring the player not the class" and all, and they would balance AoE mobs around the damage you would do to them with an AoE spec, since if they didn't then they would be incredibly easy to kill when using one of those specs.
    I shall die here. Every inch of me shall perish. Every inch, but one. An inch. It is small and it is fragile and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.
