Except when talented, this ability will do far more damage then one Telekinetic Throw. This is the only DoT you cannot maintain that you should be using in your rotation as Balance. DPS value further increases if this ability is used while you have Presence of Mind buff up.

Just to say, "Consular" includes 2 advanced classes and 6 different skill trees.

So saying it's "Rank 2 priority" on a Jedi Consular rotation it's plain wrong. (You won't even be using it AT ALL as Infiltration or Tank shadow specs, and I assume the same goes for at least 2 of the 3 Sage trees, since one is a healing spec and the other one is not DoT focused).

Speaking as a Shadow-Infiltration @ 41st level playing v2.8: Mind Crush gets no loving in the Infiltration tree, but I sometimes still use it. Mostly If I am double teaming a high hit point opponent who's aggro is being held by a friendly. I will get behind the target (like a good Shadow) and pound away with Throw and Mind Crush while the target is focused on my group mate. When my Shadow strike procs, I will move in to deliver it and then move back out and repeat Mind Crush & Throw. Mind Crush and Throw are two Force attacks which bypass "Defense" and are DoT and will not steal aggro. Once the target is at 30% hit points, I will move in with my melee attacks to help deliver the coup de grace.

The main reasons I don't use Mind Crush more is it's vulnerability to being interrupted and/or pushback. Pushback is when you receive damage and the casting "holds" until the damage is done. Concerning Interrupt, With a 2 second cast, PvP player characters have time to trigger their spell breaker ability & PVE targets can break this cast with knock back. Mind Crush is 10m range for the Shadow, so to use it, we are in the thick of combat where pushback and interrupt is likely. That is why I only use Mind Crush if I am double teaming a target from the rear. The Good news is that we do not loose force points when the casting is interrupted.
At 34th level, it was my 5th highest damage attack according to the tool tip.

Sendotux: Mind Crush is used by Balance Sage, Balace Shadow and TK Sage as major part of their rotation/priority list. Seer Sages should try to keep it up all the time as one of their main source of damage dealing (others are Project/TK throw), when there is no need to heal.

currently listed as doing 9000 damage over the 6 second duration, it is not actually as strong as that though
Over the complete 6 second duration this will actually do about the same damage as a [TK throw] at your current level

I personally think its duration is abit lacking.....i would think 12-15 is more better, but thats just my opinion.

This spell is Rank 2 in the Jedi Consular's priority list for there rotation.

I get the feeling there will be some people who will macro their character shouting "Mind Crush!" or "Penalty Game!" with this ability...
