If that is the case then it is more competitive.

I remember patch where it still was 100%, and eth was by far the best options. Dropping it to 50%, and if you have just regular one, then it isn't clear winner anymore. Up there, but there are other options.
Issue is you can't combo anything besides that stormblast proc with lightning pierce you stack. If axe worked with self cast stormblast that would have been another story. There is little bit of flat lightning damage from daedalus, but thats not much.
For instance if you go some other 800dmg axe and ancient hand, stack fire pierce, quite sure this will win just from sheer number. Every swing releases significantly stronger skill, and you can just focus on one element.

Also AH moves slower and has 35% multiplier iirc (bigger than SB/IB).

And yes, axes having Thunderfury (lightning), Yaggai's' Stormblast (lightning), and cold skills (Deathgaze/Iceburst), Nephalem Weapons (fire/lightning) kind of do not mix too well.

Although, if doing fully elemental build, with total 26 Xar runes it is -52 triple pierce.

This guide assumes you use some basic logics. If there is 1 point in last skill of the tree, there is no other way of doing that than to have at least 1 point in previous skills in the tree that lead to it. Thats why 1pt tslam.

It is crowd control skill (stun nova) that has cooldown, and by that I mean you wanna use it as often as possible, there is no reason not to. Cooldown is flat 15 seconds, so investing more points would be pointless.

At about what point can we expect to have the strength required for Tier 4 Wrathchild?
