Development[edit | edit source]

Circle of Wrath was first revealed at BlizzCon 2010. Flux reported on using this skill:[1]

At level 2 in the early going, it was fairly devastating. Almost all regular monsters would die in one blast of this, so I soon learned to save it for use when I was in range of at least half a dozen enemies. Just the damage from it was impressive and time-saving, but the fact that it healed as well was just silly. I thought it was overpowered in practice, since I was never below 80% hit points with my Monk, thanks entirely to this skill. (And the fact that I killed all of the monsters before they had a chance to do much more than raise their crude implements.)
