Look at the skill update, its hardly made any skills useful, pretty much killed sp and has not addressed most of the skills that need fixing.
I'm sure everyone agrees that what they did with SP is overkill.
E-surge isn't nearly as much of a spike w/o sp, why decrease range?
Power flux, takes first place for useless elites: only interrupts spells and power leak drains more instantly.
Hex eater got boosted, but not enough for it to be useful. Face it, as far as damage goes its too conditional, same for enchantment removal.
Sympathetic/Ancestors Visage: another skill nerfed to death. I guess it is still possible to spam if you have factions and prophecies. What if you don't?
And what about tease, extend conditions, air of disenchantment, Enchanters Conundrum? Just a few skills of the top of my head that are completely useless as far as elites go.
