PvE, I use it on one battle in celestial tournament, other than that I really can't see much use for it.
PvP is where it is mostly useful. Why?
Haunt. Uniqe ability. It is, I belive, the most powerful DoT in the game right now. IE most damage per tick. But what really sets it apart from other DoT attacks is that you get a "free" switch. When casting Haunt the Valk will "die" and you get to pick which pet to move to the front next turn.
This is quite a powerful tactical move. You get to put a DoT on your opponent and then you can chose which of your other pets you want to fight with, so you can really pick which one suits best for the current opposing pet. Using other pets with DoT's you have to sacrifice a turn and take a hit if you want to switch your pets. If you use Feign Death you don't chose which pet to switch in, but you know it's the one with highest current health.
The downside to Haunt is that if your other pets get killed while you are "haunting" you will automatically lose since your Valk counts as dead. No other ability has this kind of drawback. Often it is not a problem but you have to keep it in mind.
The other abilities or stats are nothing out of the ordinary or spectacular.
I belive B/B is slightly better at PvP since it is faster than the H/H version and would be able to haunt it's opponent.
H/H version has alot of health and can really go toe to toe with most pets, just banging heads at one another.
Other things why it is top rated. Looks.

Buffs, debuffs, dots will be put on hold until the Valk ress. Then they start ticking again while Valk is in back row.

Badpathing wrote:I know the dots persist, but it does not matter really since you surface the second time usually to Haunt again; meaning, my Valk usually is in a state of 'dead' for most of the fight. Guess I did not word it well, but it is a strength (in my opinion).
