The nerf didn't really hurt it much, two seconds in Diablo is still insane. It's absolutely huge when you could have eaten several life bars worth of damage in that same time period. Vault doesn't get you out of many situations that Smoke Screen does. There is just no downside to using it and Prep lets you get off several back to back. It's a life saver vs Hell+ packs, bosses and just unforeseen crap.
