Diablo® III

Locust Swarm Range

Any chance at Blizzard increasing the range of Locust Swarm to shoot across the whole screen? Or just instantly hit whatever monster you click on? I love the spell but can't stand it's short range. As a pure caster I shouldn't have to get so close to the monsters to hit them with insects that can fly.

So instead of making you do the walking you want the flying insects to do the moving well I guess it is just a transfer of who is lazy but my question is why don't you like getting up close?

Because I prefer to not get hit? As a pure caster I would like the ability for my spells to hit the monster before they are within melee range. I don't think it's too much to ask for regarding this spell. It's not like having some range would turn it into a super OP spell.

I think a delivery system not unlike that of corpse spiders should be good. The locusts swarm out after the jar breaks...

With abilities like horrify you can let things get surprisingly close and still not get hit

Bah, you just need to get used to it. I hated the range when I first started playing with it. But now I LOVE it in conjunction with my bears. Get close, cast Pestilence, Bears, Bears, Bears, everything is dead. 65 enemies killed in 1 hit! Boom.
