However, I suggest including something about Mefis (Nephalem's Sacrifice quest) in your Boss/Dungeons section.

I learned the hard way in HC, that Mefis has an attack which instantly removes >15k life even with 90% cold resist, maxed Prismatic Cloak, etc. It's a 1-hit KO to almost every character. My character with 60 hours of gameplay, full 15,224 HP, was instantly killed by Mefis without any sort of visual or audio cue

I just added the info to the HC Tips page.

Is there any alternative to using Barrier Strike? I just don't enjoy it at all and find it irritating other than that I've enjoyed the build so far

It's possible that you are just not using it right... it's actually a pretty great skill for most things, but just not so great in labs.
You typically don't have to worry about "killing every single enemy", which is the only shortcoming for it. But it clears 99% of the mobs very quickly.
In labs, just need to use Crucify/Broadside for a lot more cleanup.

If you just keep walking (or running) and casting it, everything should just follow you and die. For Scosglen farming, you may need to round up the mobs a little and cast banish on them, first - depending on how strong you are (pts in Ways, +Skills on charms/gear, etc).

Everything goes pretty smooth for me with just Broadside and Barrier Strike. I also keep Crucify handy to pick off stragglers, or something to hit stationary bosses with while waiting on Broadside CD.

How can you play like that? I use QWASDZXFR for more comfort. And now that we have quick-cast, pianosin is a thing of the past.

I started to play this mod again, so far so good, but I have to agree with ManaLeech, the "new" Barrier Strike is not to my liking. It's nice that you can shift-click it to ground but mechanic-wise... meh.
I don't think there are any oskills that can help around it.

Edit: Three shrine charges used:

Sometimes you just get lucky. :)
Not the best but still.
