before the AE nerf, yes it was completely, utterly and ridiculously useless. now however, with large groups of mobs i find myself using it, even at lvl 44, to fill in the dull space while waiting for my other ae's to recycle. it does decent damage, alot more than my old nerfed one.

At 33 I cycle Chilling Wind followed by Pyre followed by umm...the electricity one lol.
 
If you follow Ice with fire you always get a better fire hit becuase of cold debuffs. As a result I can get 100+ damage per target that way. My only issue with it is it takes forever to cast, usualy meaning the only mobs its usefull on (none ^) die to group damage before I can get it off!

I use it first or second. If the mobs are higher con, second with Chilling winds first. Lower con, first. The long cast time is what I call the aggro buffer time. Meaning it lets the tank get a little extra aggro.

I only use it when it doesn't really matter if I use it or not, i.e. very easy encounters. I don't feel the DPS is worth at all. Using it on the mob everyone else is whacking is a complete waste, so switch targets before starting to cast.

if you could chain your AE's it wouldnt be a problem, well, aside from the cast time.  I usually stop assisting, cast freezing wind, then pyre to scorching pulse......start assisting again and go straight for DD.  AE is only benificial in 5+ encounters IMO.
