What Flux and Eliminator thought of the skill thanks to Diablowiki:
The most popular skill in Archon form was the Beam. It worked just like a much more damaging Disintegrate, though it had a shorter range. I don’t know if the skill does critical hits, because I can’t remember ever seeing any when I used it. The beam did do a low of 900 to a high 1300 a second. That was without things being hit by Arcane Torrent or being Frozen by Frost Nova. If they had either debuff on them they died fast.
It only took one encounter with an Archon to know you don’t want to mess with a healthy one solo. One that was at about half health would go down rather fast from a WoTB Barb and a few Hammers. An Archon Wizard really felt like a game changer, but they weren’t unbeatable if you dealt with them quickly, and since the Wizard does not have Teleport in Archon form, they could be avoided as well.
In PVE the cooldown is the bottleneck of the skill. The 2 minute cooldown is not enough to make it useful during extended gameplay sessions but makes a good choice of quick annihilation of big groups.
For PVP, Archon is great when damage bursts are required. Usually, burst can decide the outcome of a match.
Most players use Archon at the beginning of the match to intimidate their opponents and even try to kill one of them the moment the match starts.
