Don't really need to switch it for a 1v1 boss as long as you're safe about it. 1v1 it's still a 30-second-duration ~30 intellect boost, which is a 30% damage buff, which is huge.
A 5-stack is orgasmic and ideal, but the buff itself is quite powerful. Unless I misread the tooltip.
And yes, it currently (only level 16) feels like my damage is just too terrible when I leave out SH.

Soul Harvest is risk/reward.
Risk: Get up close to enemies, sacrifice a skill slot for more utility/damage abilities or CC.
Reward: Large Damage (and resistance) Boost.
It has a powerful effect (and can be very useful), but there will be situations that will make it a bad idea to use, as you have to run into almost melee range to use it.
Powerful? Most certainly.
Must Have? Definitely not.
Utility > Raw Damage (In many cases, especially Hardcore)
If you have room in your build though, go for it. It's a great skill!
Edit: Noticed "for Farm Builds" in title.. If you're farming an area you know well, and can handle with the other 5 skills you have without problems, yes, this would be a BnB (but maybe not in Hardcore) as it would dramatically increase your farm rate.

I can't seem to choose between Soul Harvest and Horrify in my build;
Horrify + Ruthless Terror = Escape spell and mana
Soul Harvest + Siphon = Dmg + heal
