Which flash for Nikon D750?


I have tried to find an answer for this question but I hadn't be succesfull, so sorry for maybe duplicite thread.

I have Nikon D750 with some speed primes (20/1.8, 35/1.4, 85/1.8) and 24-120 kit lens. I am photographing events, reports, landscapes and some portraits. I have two Yongnuo flashes without TTL (think 560 type), just for try some fun. But now I need good and reliable flash with TTL because when reporting or photographing event I can't use manual flash with sucess.

If possible I don't want to spend like 400$ for original Nikon SB900 or 910. I can buy used one or some from ebay. And this is the question. Which one is good enough - easy tu use, reliable, not so battery draining, sufficiently strong to light a part of church for example etc.? And I would like to take one, that will can have master mode for radio controll other flashes (f.eg. those two Yongnuo with external radio control on tripod). And what is important, I need it user friendly - heard that Nissin is good but with terrible controls.

I have found some types - which one I would have to buy?

Nikon SB900 or 910 - yet used, is it the best choice?

Nikon SB700 - they say that used SB700 would be in better condition, because not used so much by profesionals, and it is sufficiently strong and with features

Yongnuo YN685 - nice prize, full of abilities, but they say that it drains batteries very fast (http://www.ebay.com/itm/YONGNUO-YN685-YN-685-N-TTL-Wireless-Blitz-Blitzgerat-Speedlite-fur-Nikon-622N-DE-/142006904062?hash=item21104564fe:g:N24AAOSwImRYNnO3)

Flashpoint / GODOX V860II - interesting possibility with Li-Ion battery and good power but the prize is around 200$ too = just same as used SB900 (https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=Flashpoint+Zoom+Li-on+Manual+R2+On-Camera+Flash+Speedlight+V860II&_sacat=0)

Metz, Nissin etc.? Or any other variant like new SB900 because it is just the best all around option..?

Thanks for help, and sorry for my bad english.
