Very well said. I will never argue that lifesteal is amazing with Archon. It's 100% fantastic. Especially if you want to farm with your eyes closed. :)
But for me, you can get way more damage w/o a lifesteal weapon, which means more efficiency, a higher potential MP for farming, only sacrificing the occasional kite/brain activation when facing elites on MP4 and above.

As long as they won't change the way how to keep archon up, any extra time you spend dealing with the pack can have dramatic consequences on your effectivity. It had on mine, at least.
I agree. For me, I don't get held up much on RD till MP5. But again, it's all personal preference!
