Archon viable?

Posts: 137
This may seem like a rediculous question, but I haven't seen true reason to use Archon. There are many other abilities that seem more viable (i.e. Magic Weapon, Familiar, a second defensive skill). I've tried using Archon in different situations, and even with the slight knockback, it can't see the damage being overly worthwhile. I'm about to start "Hell" difficulty and from what I've been reading, it's all about being defensive and playing the slow kiting game to kill mobs. I've read about the APS, +HP Regen, and Life Leech spec, but is it really as strong as people have posted? The spec seems like it would be nerfed very soon if you can leech 3x your health every second making it near impossible to die.

These may seem like dumb questions, but I've just read too much and heard both sides of the story and looking to determine what the overall most viable spec as well as being viable in solo and co-op play.

I used it when i was farming act 4 hell. I had a fairly tanky build, and using archon just further increases that durability allowing me more dps time, plus using archon on the first fight in act 4 sets you up with a 5+ min archon, and i just couldnt pass that up.
