– We can literally fire lazer beams from the palm of our hands. What else do you want from a spell?!
– This spell reduces the movement speed of your target by 50% whilst pumping out some heavy damage. People often undervalue how useful this can be. In PvP you can use this spell in so many different ways and the fact that you are dealing damage can often be just an added bonus. Mind Flay can save your healer friend from being killed by that Arms Warrior or it can slow an enemy down as he tries to approach you whilst your DoTs tick away at his HP. Mind Flay is amazing in PvP!

– Melting of faces
Some of you may notice that you are accidentally recasting mind flay before the previous mind flay had finished. This means you are missing out on the last ‘tick’ of damage and therefore wasting time and mana. This macro can help:

This allows you to spam your mind flay spell without allowing yourself to cast until the previous spell has finished channeling.
