Mind Blast is Shadow-based direct-damage spell. It has a short cast time considering its high damage and mana cost, but a relatively long cooldown. Because it increases 100% extra threat, it is considered to only be truly viable for PvP.

Notes

The formula for Mind Blast is based on the damage in the table above. The value given in the tooltip includes up to 10% bonus damage from the Darkness talent, which is a bit wrong since talent effects are supposed to be included after bonus damage for damage spells. To convert the tooltip-listed base damage to the real base damage use the following formula.

Real_base_damage = Listed_base_damage / (1 + Darkness_bonus)

The formula for calculating the damage from this spell is as follows:

Damage_done = (Real_base_damage + (1.5/3.5) * Spelldamage * Downrank_factor) * (1 + Darkness_Bonus)

A level-80 priest with 1.500 Shadow damage and full ranks in Darkness would end up with (maximum non-critical damage)

Damage_done = (1048 + 1500*(1.5/3.5) * 1.0) * ( 1 + 0.10 ) = 1860 Shadow damage
