Question Diablo 3 + Stylus-controlled actions in DS games

I don't know if someone has posted this idea over here before...

Because Diablo 3 has isometric view, would it be cool to have some spells/abilities that work like varieties of stylus-controlled actions like in some DS games? (Zelda DS, The World Ends With You, for example)

Simple examples would be a firewall-spell that blocks enemies, and would damage them if they are near the wall. You could create your own chokes & trap strong enemies in a fiery circle by drawing a line with a mouse + hotkey. Or a object throw spell where you pick an object with a mouse (concrete wall or a big stone) and with moving a mouse to the left and releasing the mouse at the right time the object would fly left & do direct damage to enemies.

Imagine how clever & fun spells/abilities could be made into Diablo 3? And what kind of crazy ideas you have in your mind?

Or would this idea work at all in Diablo 3?

The firewall spell might work, and indeed I would love to see such a thing (with appropriate downsides to mana/energy of course). I'm not as convinced about the telekinesis, but it could work if done well.

Don't know if it could be implemented in a balanced way but it's a great idea.

Think you of the fact that a deaf person cannot hear. Then, what deafness may we not all possess? What senses do we lack that we cannot see and cannot hear another world all around us?
--Quotation of the Orange Catholic Bible from Frank Herbert's Dune

And in my darkest moment, fetal and weeping, the Moon tells me a secret (my confidant): "As full and bright as I am, this Light is not my own." And a million light reflections pass over me.
--Excerpt from Tool's "Reflection"

would the stylus idea be not just for ds? could you use your mouse as a stylus for certain spells?

I always thought it would be cool to be able to use a control for Diablo -- especially considering half the time you're not really doing anymore then clicking the mouse :3

and the fact that they have Further simply fies it so someone can sit back only use the mouse and feel the blood clots go to their brain.
