It's for those people that want to pretend they're a Barb using Whirlwind.

I really wish it was a decent skill...Being able to DPS while moving would be very nice but its never worth using.

Yeah, I thought the idea of a channeled ranged attack that you could use while moving was great too, but in practice it's just terrible. It drains hatred very fast, doesn't provide enough mobility to make a decent kiting tool and doesn't even do much damage.

By contrast, Hungering Arrow and Elemental Arrow sound pretty boring on paper, but nearly every DH is using them right now because, even though they're pretty basic, they're powerful, efficient and easy to use.

Really fast. Seriously, what other class can break every object in a room ,particularly those cellars in act II with lots of barrels in them, in 5 seconds flat...without having to aim?

It's great when you don't know about Elective Mode and have literally nothing else unlocked for that tree.
