    Is blinding flash useless now?

    I read that you can no longer keep the damage buff from blinding flash up with sweeping wind. Is this true?
    That was the only reason blinding flash was any good.

    I still like the flat damage up it provides.

    It is true, snapshot is GONE!
    This is the best change in this patch imo. Blind is still very useful for killing elite packs fast and dmg mitigation, but now I actually can try out other skills in that slot without making my monk a useless wimp.

    Yes it's good because it opens up that slot for another skill. But blinding flash is worthless now. It was only ever good for buffing sweeping wind dmg.

    With a good attack speed Blind is still a powerful skill. With 2.5APS you get +75% damage for 3 seconds every 15 seconds is an average of +15% (even more with Hand of Ytar or Empowerment shrine or Frenzy shrine) compared with BoH +15%. The concentration of damage into 3 seconds makes it much better than BoH.
    On top of this you get an incredible crowd control.

    The crowdcontrol is so strong.. even without dmg buff I prefer it over the heal + damage.. Simply cause in the 3 seconds you kill most of the mobs... If anything I might start using a different rune (but then again, I don't need more defense).
