A couple of my favorites are unconventional by this web site's standards:
1 - My primary attack is Crippling Wave / Mangle. I tried FoT et.al, but drove me nuts to only hit one target at a time while the others smacked me around.
2 - Wave of Light / Explosive Light. This is my secondary (right mouse) attack. It does a pretty good job of clearing a mob so you can focus on the elites.
3 - Breath of Heaven / Penitent Flame. Fear is not popular here, but when I'm toe-to-toe with an elite and health is wearing down, I find it hard to effectively change course to go after a health globe. I usually end up getting hit worse. Instead, this skill fears the elite, and 8/10 times, there's a globe right behind them, that I end up getting as they run away, with me in pursuit. (I have no extended pickup radius, which is a PITA).
4 - I use Sweeping Wind w/ Blade Storm in lieu of Cyclone, because my Crit. Hit chance is only around 17%, and therefore don't spawn enough cyclones to realize its real benefit.
Serenity / Ascension is one I didn't use before seeing its recommendation and I've really come to like it. Especially when you are standing in a puddle of molten, or you see some frozen coming on. I think this one's pretty standard, as is Mantra of Convention / Overawe.
