I was really disappointed with the clearspeed and thought I'd try a different lightning spell. I used fork lightning and its easily 5x as quick as tempest. Instead of Abyss I'm using the third mana spell* (I can't recall the name). I still find that thunderstone is quicker for some bosses such as the 5th wave on Baal and baal himself. I don't think I'm geared particularly well but I can farm K3K and Terror Cows pretty easily while slowly progressing in Destruction. With my current gear setup for light spells I can't really change much else of the build. However I've read in chat that poison sorc is good.
This build was not updated yet for the new patch. Thunderstone, Tempest, and Abyss were all nerfed, which is why you're not seeing great damage. Forked Lightning is stronger now, as you've seen.
