Act 2 warden? just use hungering arrow from afar. Position yourself so that you can see the edge of the missile dampening field (just the edge or slightly before the edge), fire, and then you'll go off unscratched. Guaranteed! True story.
Waller (plus other affixes) as a DH is the most annoying affix.

Desecration....im a tanky monk.
Desecrate rapes you because you're geared awfully for tanking, dpsing, and anything else for that matter.
I play all classes but I focus on the female Wizard (I'm male but like the female voice better because it's from the same woman that did Avatar, yay).
I dislike the fact that monsters can have several affixes. It isn't like most players can have several nasty things going on at once.
I especially hate arcane. There is no character class ability that comes close to this one. You can run around it if you're not walled or frozen, but monsters like to cast arcane right on you while having molten fire or poison pools on the ground. If they cast the pivot point of the arcane spell on you, you lose life much faster until you move. I think I have arcane affix envy..and I play Wizard... it's sad that monsters have a cooler arcane spell and illusion spell than the Wizard.. (yeah the Wizard mirror image spells are all lame unless you're trying to increase crowd control on monsters with stunning or freezing; the Wizard's mirror image spell doesn't even work correctly... they say it works as intended but why do they intend that the mirror images cannot cast most of the Wizard's useful spells?? why? .. it's just a lame limitation of the spell...)...
There are so many annoying affixes to choose from that it's almost impossible to decide on just one.
Wallers were pain in the !@#, not anymore. If I get walled off, I just smoke screen and vault back in the direction of the elite monster (with trail of cinders I deal some damage, too): it usually works, the key is not to panic.
For my DH, the worst affix would probably be vortex...especially combined with frozen - getting vortexed right at the time when the frost novas explode really suck.
a gold elite waller is no problem. since the walls are always placed in a U formation where the only exit is where the enemy's coming from. A quick vault by the DH is all that it needs and you need to be careful if it's also molten...
But when you're fight a blue elite mob with waller, this is where the problem starts... They put only one wall, but on 3 different spots and almost any configuration. They will block most of your shots. at times they will literally wall you in (worse than jailer since you can't break it) and you won't be able to move... and if they're also desecrator? you'll be saying the word that starts with 15 hexadecimal. And then you encounter the blue elite pack of 4 and things just get annoying as you'd end up getting walled in indefinitely until they kill you or your minion kill them (ha! yeah right!)
I'm a barb player.
Frozen doesn't hurt in itself, but it makes any kind of offensive affix even more effective. If the elite pack itself is formidable, it makes them even worse. Also when frozen orbs is deployed, it stops me from attacking them and keeps me on the defensive, preventing me from charge and finishing off the pack. Frozen + any defensive affix just makes it longer to kill the pack.
