Would be so nice to get an Shadow Orb based AoE, that would give us a real choice in terms of choosing damage, even like an aoe dot if they insist on doting (affli and destro warlock have it, duh). And give more depth to the holy pow... sorry, shadow orb mechanics. Recolor it black and lets call it a raven, yey!?
I quite like the idea of MS geting buffed on targets with SW:P active, but they won't do it because "warlock already have that" (on AoE spread even).
As it is Mind Sear is back where it was at Cata launch, useless even on fights with multiple adds, Maloriak was a prime example: many adds + lived long = mind sear was still shit. The Issue is that in a situation like that, we spend so much time and effort on refreshing dots, that we don't have time to even use MS, 5 targets (and there where more afaik) x ~3sec dot casts = 15 sec doting, with VT having 15 sec duration, and swp 18 sec (not counting t14 tier bonus because that's just temporary). Sure you can get a few MS ticks in if you are an asian robot from the future.
Mind Sear is already fun in terms of unique targeting (and frustrating at times), but it has to be a button worth pushing... 60% my ass.
