Hmm, honestly I just don't think you have enough DPS, on top of what others are saying here. You can stack a bunch of stuff, and you probably should, but really SS and/or SP + nuke is the way you're going to beat them, even if you do stack resists/armor. With 45k dps, that's just not enough nuking in that small of a time frame. Might work for A1, but certainly not A3.
But, I do agree the "mouse over and see" mechanic needs some work...it's not always easy depending where you are, where the mobs are, how hectic the situation is when the elites come into view, etc. IMO, when you mouse over an elite pack, it should remain at the top of the screen for a few seconds, unless you mouse over something else. Typically if I feel I don't have enough time to really see what I'm fighting I pop Gloom regardless...and just look for red numbers. :)
You wanna talk about something "broken"...let's talk about elite tremor packs. Stupidest !@#$ ever. Only mob I can think of that gets the rate at which it can do a base (non-elite) skill at about 10000% the rate it normally can. I can't even remember the last time I saw a tremor charge...and yet they LITERALLY can do it every second (or maybe less), each, in elite packs. Traps don't even matter. It's kinda retarded, IMO. Oh, and of course god forbid you time your nuking with their "shield"...also a base skill they do more often...that negates nearly all your damage. Have fun timing your CA or whatever you use when you're timing it with gloom, their "duck and cover" shield, and probably their walls...all at the same time....when you're getting continually charged. Nearly impossible to retain range with them, unless you happen to get them stuck in a doorway, which doesn't happen too often anymore.
Bleh...RD is easy...
