Great info.Any thoughts on where's Mind Spike is going to fit in?What % of health will a non-kill SW:D do (in other words, how risky is the backlash from a SW:D)?Also, minor edit: in one section you mention dotting with VE/SW:P, but you mean VT/SW:P. :)

The hardest I've seen a SW:D crit so far is about ~25k, but I'm a fresh 85 so that will probably go higher. Let's say 30k. The backlash from that crit would be 18000 damage. Premade priests have about 130k health in tier 11, so 18k/130k is about 13% of your health. A regular hit is around 15k in this instance, and would backlash for 9k, or ~6% of your health.In summary, if both deaths fail to kill your target (which will happen on a boss) you'll so about 13% of your own health as damage to yourself.

I'd also like to add that you WANT to take that damage (e.g., not have a PW:S eat it), since right now if the backlash from Death is absorbed you don't get the mana from masochism.
