Cloud of Bats
Call forth a swirl of bats that damage nearby enemies for 501% weapon damage as Fire. The damage of the bats increases by 20% every second, up to a maximum of 100%.
Create a swirling storm around you, dealing 364% weapon damage as Cold to all enemies caught within it.
Sure not all the skills can be equal but if you don't pick exactly the cookie cutter build of the moment you simply suffer in terms of performance. In what universe do you have a skill that does 1000% damage (cloud of bats) for 66 mana and not expect every single WD to jump on it?
I'm sick of trying to have a different kind of build, im sick of being punished for not wanting the same build as everyone else.
Build diversity is joke in this game.

Builds and efficiency in all games there will always be builds that are super efficient in farming. Even ones that are miles ahead of others. This happens all of the time, the only way around it IMO would be to homogenize all abilities of all classes. Doing that would be boring to say the least.
Farming: Tell me what else is there to do in Diablo 3 but farming. I want to know what else is there do, is there some secret thing that I am not aware of that is a special thing to do other than farm. I cannot think of anything else in this game to do but farm. Some would say brawling would be fine. But even that would only be fun for a little while.
Also in that quote I did not say that farming should be the only thing to do. But alas in this game that right Diablo 3, D3, D3, D3, just in case you did not hear it right the first time is farming. Did I make it that way? Of course not, that is unless you think that I am Jay incognito using a different battle tag which I would not do.
I know that you are not used to playing without points to spend, but me I can live without them. I can choose many different builds that are for fun. Trust me each one has it's weaknesses and strengths just like all builds do.
