Feather Sigil Posted April 10, 2015 Share Posted April 10, 2015 I restarted my playthrough--not because of the patch--and decided to go a slightly different build with my Cipher, taking Eyestrike instead of Mind Wave early on. I just hit L4 again and I'm conflicted on whether I should take Mind Blades or Mind Wave, operating under the assumption that I'll only ever have one of the two because I can't say for certain what I'll do in later levels. The damage ranges of the two spells are pretty similar. I imagine Mind Wave would probably do more damage to an individual target even though it has a lower base damage, since it bypasses DR while Mind Blades doesn't, but I could be wrong. OTOH, Mind Blades hits multiple targets and therefore will almost certainly always do more damage overall. Mind Wave has a decent AoE size but it just doesn't compare to Mind Blades' amazing coverage. Mind Wave has its CC potential while Mind Blades doesn't, but dead enemies don't need CC. Any advice on which I ought to take? P.S. I would appreciate if nobody said "It's Normal, do whatever". I realize that I'm not on PotD but even then that's just not helpful.
