The description for Archon reads:

While in Archon form, your normal abilities are replaced by powerful Archon abilities

But no further information is provided. What does that mean, precisely? Which abilities are replaced, and what abilities replace them?

Taken from the Diablo Wiki:

  • Arcane Blast
    Cooldown: 5 seconds
    Release a wave of pure energy dealing 115% weapon damage as Arcane to all nearby enemies.

  • Arcane Strike
    Strike the ground in front of you, causing 250% weapon damage as Arcane to enemies in the area.

  • Disintegration Wave
    Thrust a beam of pure energy forward dealing 300% weapon damage as Arcane.

The following abilities are unlocked with the skill's runes, so the player has to choose which one to use:

  • Slow Time (20 seconds cooldown)
    Project a bubble of warped space and time that moves with you, slowing the movement and attack speed of enemies by 40% and the speed of projectiles by 60% for 10 seconds

  • Teleport (10 seconds cooldown)
    Teleport through the ether to the selected location up to 20 yards away.

All of the Archon's skills completely replace your wizard abilities, until you revert to your normal form, either by waiting or right-clicking on the buff above the hotbar.

  • @ThiefMaster can you point me to a source that reports the correct values? I got these from the wiki, but I thought they were a little off.
