    It is purpose that created us.
    Purpose that connects us.
    Purpose that pulls us.
    That guides us.
    That drives us.
    It is purpose that defines us.
    Purpose that binds us.
    We are here because of you, GriffonHawke. We're here to take from you what you tried to take from us.

    vk absolutely useless in pvp to be honest, the mana drain abilities do remove a little bit of the opponents mana but never fast enough to win a fight (1on1 and group pvp) the 8sec silence is nice without question, but really useless once you dont hit all clerics at once, they'll just get too much heal.

    And since you dont do any damage to your opponent anymore since your damage output is a bad joke the class is absolutely made to be thrown in the trash.

    VK is good supplementary soul to a Champ or Riftblade when combine the healing debuff or Riftblade silence and riftsurge with VK drains you have pretty good Mage counters.As main soul with most of points in that soul effectiveness is ok but is better as support now.

    You'll still loose to a pyro, wl or necro because you'll hit him for 100-200dmg with that spec and he'll do constant 600-700 hits.
    I've had 29% magic reduction +10% from valor the other day and still got crit nearly 8k with wings.

    VK was already useless pre patch other than having mana drain / silence vs bad players that couldn't counter it.
    Now that they've taken the mana drain away they can just remove the entire tree all together.

    Champ with VK will do crappy damage and riftblade as main damage anything less than 51pt is weak at end game.

    No reason to have dispell, silence and root if you can't kill anything.

    The only decent VK spec would be heavy VK paired with warlord for extra disarm, pull and aoe root but that will only work vs bad teams that bunch up together and dont know how to CC or focus targets.

    or just bring 3 dominators and have a chance to actually kill people. no reason for the VK.

    I agree. I don't know why Trion nerfed them in the first place. Sure, if they stacked 10 pacts they *could* burst me, but it's not a reliable tactic as they have to build up that 10 stack of pacts again to do it. Everything regarding the VK has been turned from mainline spec to subspec only if you need it against mana using raid trash. That's sorta sad in my eyes because I thought with my mage, I'd have to worry about VKs in WFs, but I worry more about sins than VKs. There's something terribly wrong with that mental image for me.
