Swallow Soul vs. Crushing shock

Wondering which is better for a mageblade in PVE, I've seen both used. In Vet maelstrom I like the heal from swallow soul but the interrupt from crushing shock could come in handy sometimes. Which is better and why?

    Crushing shock is good for PvP, in PvE is not very useful.

    Regarding strife vs force shock, everything depends on healing. If you use double destro, you need to slot strife for healing. If you use resto/destro, it is not a bad ides to use shock. Better if you are altmer or dunmer

    Sarcasm is something too serious to be taken lightly

    I was born with the wrong sign
    In the wrong house
    With the wrong ascendancy
    I took the wrong road
    That led to the wrong tendencies
    I was in the wrong place at the wrong time
    For the wrong reason and the wrong rhyme
    On the wrong day of the wrong week
    Used the wrong method with the wrong technique

    Force Pulse, if you're running a pure DPS build in PvE. Crushing Shock is pretty useful in vMA, but for group content, Force Pulse is definitely stronger. I'd probably still even use Swallow Soul in vMA, since you'll need all the healing you can get away with.

    Swallow Soul: PvP, vMSA and maybe pledges (depends how your group is set up)
    Force Pulse: PvE
