Logic almost seems to dictate that it only makes sense to use Mind Crush if you are full Balance tree when the proc comes up. Also DoT management is fairly simply considering duration times and instant casts if you go with the balance tree or partial balance tree.
I know Fedifensor uses a very interesting build which allows for both good focus damage on a single target, and great mass AOE damage as well.
I'd like to see what other build people are using for Sages in post 1.2.
