D4 Necro Why am I not allowed to use my cool sword?

Why is it that if I put one point in to a basic skill I’m all of a sudden not allowed to use my basic attack?

I wouldn’t mind it if there was at least one skill on the Necromancer skill tree that actually utilizes the melee weapon I have equiped, but there isn’t and I’m pissed.

Necromancer has always been my favorite class and part of that class fantasy is being able to go melee, you are even acknowledging this yourselves by giving the necro “Reap”, a pseudo melee skill.

Blizzard you are letting my character equip melee weapons but forcing me to be a caster, that is straight up laughing in my face and you ruined my favorite class for me.
