Researchable pre Velious on TLP (guildmate made a dozen on Aradune one week before Velious...but then we also have BST spells dropping).

Funny, I have ben watching this spell for the last 2 weeks in the Baz on The Nameless server. I have seen the price go back and forth from 4k to 15k. People are so whacked! I finally managed to farm the pieces I needed, paid a guy 300PP and my chanter had himself his new 58 spell.

Dementia ENC/54 Mana Cost: 169
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 571
2: Stun(1.00 sec)

Dementing Visions ENC/58 Mana Cost: 239
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 836

OK, so the damage per mana on Dementing Visions is about 3.50. For Dementia it is 3.38. Dementia casts a second quicker and also stuns and interrupts which is handy. Not to mention the fact that at level 58 you may not even get the full 836 damage of DV, while you get max damage on Dementia at 56 or earlier.

Granted for chain-nukes there is about 26% more DPS from DV which is a significant increase in burst DPS. DV definately is not worthless, though there are times where I would want Dementia instead.

Point being, if you can't get your hands on DV it's not time to stop and grind AA's at 57 till you get it. You might not get a group if you can't find Forlorn Deeds, but if you can't get grouped for not having Dementing Visions they clearly see you as only a ghetto wizard anyways.

Biggest problem I have always seen with chanter nukes is the stuns tend to resist in my experience.
