Ancient spear should have Lightning Fury

How many of you remember the old lightning fury ability from amazons in diablo 2? It was a wonderful little ability that tossed out a javelin that created *skill level#of lightning bolts upon striking a target, and with some of the amazon's passive skills and equipment it would pierce, creating an equal number of lightning bolts per each target struck making it an amazing skill against packs of monsters.

Personally I find ancient spear an incredibly underwhelming skill with some of its runes (like rage flip) being outright bad. I think that ancient spear should be revisited and have its final rune changed to lightning fury, which would change its damage to lightning and upon striking generate send one lightning bolt at each enemy nearby its target, it would also pierce thus causing chain reactions to large packs of monsters.

Maybe not entirely this, but something of this sort should be done. I agree that Ancient Spear is an awful spender, other than boulder and at times jagged edge, sadly jagged edge has a radius of 1 yard and boulder takes 5+ seconds to build fury for. Honestly, all of barbarians fury spenders are pretty horrible other than HOTA - Smash, which aint even amazing.

Perhaps the (prospective) lightning fury rune should create more missiles based on the amount of rage you have when casting it? +1 missile per 10 rage (remember it pierces). And as for ancient spear beating HOTA dmg.... that's situational, hota crit chance is insane.
