As a wizzard, my worst affix is vortex, its IMO unfair, makes kitting/positioning much harder and can lead to quick deaths.
My wizzard's bane is an elite pack of Demonic Tremors on steroids: fast+horde+extra health+vortex. They are bulky, hit hard, can shield themselves, have innate knockback (they love to play boleyball using my wizz as the ball ~~), plus the elite version is already stupidly fast (are they bugged?), if you add those 4 affixes they are IMO way more harder than any end boss.

For a ranged class, fast.
Nothing compares, because unlike other affixes, this one is completely dependent on what you're fighting. If it's on a naturally fast mob, you might as well just resign yourself to running back from a rez point, because there is no way for a normal ranged class to survive against a naturally fast melee mob with the Fast affix. You get beaten to a pulp and there's no way to kite, because the mobs move twice as fast as you do. They should restrict which mobs have the ability to receive the 'Fast' affix.
#1 by far : Vortex for the horrible design.
#2 : nightmarish for the horrible design too. However, it's way better than vortex and would be very easy to fix (like making monster who are going to fear you glow)
#3 : invulnerable minions, but only because the idea wasn't thought out well enough. It's a shame it was removed instead of tweaked.
#4 : molten, but only because of the über wacky/complex mechanics.
#5 : Reflect damage. I don't mind it personnaly, but I have to admit the design isn't good.
Everything else, and even some of my lists are fun and fair.
If I only had to choose one : Vortex. Without any doubt.
Unfair. Unfun. Unpredictable.
The absolute worse of all time.
Vortex. You get sucked in, it means they get a free hit on you(but in many cases it's MANY free hits if the whole mob is there) AND you take any DOT damage like molten, plague, desecrator, etc. Load of bull!@#$, especially when the vortex can suck you in from a full screen away while the Monk's version even with the rune can't even do 3/4's the screen.
Although i have found ways to circumvent this, it's usually too late to deal with it because i don't have enough time to read all the affixes once i see an elite mob.
and.. of course there's reflect damage and certain combinations like Frozen, Jailer, Waller, and any DOT... a big statement saying "F U, you're dieing at least once!"

agreed. i absolutely hate vortex.. when its combined with firechains its a complete joke. i honestly hate all the affixes that makes me lose control of my character like knockback/nightmarish but vortex by far is the most stupid and annoying,
