If I were to dump most of my talents into a single tree, which would be the best overall on the Hard or Nightmare difficulties?

All of the Entropy field. Seriously.
The above is my opinion.

spirit seems to be a sleeper tree in the mix. crushing prison, force field, death syphon, and walking bomb are all amazing on higher difficulties. entropy is also great at control, so you can win a lot of fights by having well placed cc.

can force field an enemy to lock them out, or force field a team mate to save them. use sparingly of course.
I have tribal spirit. Does this mean I'm cool now?!

Frost is also extremely good and should not be neglected. Cone of cold (?) is a great crowd control skill and good for higher level enemies and bosses.

Creation. At least that way your party can actually live long enough on Nightmare to kill something.
Is there something about the way I type that makes it sound angry? Maybe it's just something about the way you read.

The Mana Clash spell is amazing. Unfortunately, it is the last spell of an only somewhat-useful tree. However, if you can spare the points, it is an amazing spell. It is almost a one-hit kill on every mage and spell-casting demon in the game. Ever since I got it, I've been a walking mass of destruction. The Circle of Mages quest was so easy it was laughable.

First off , randomsentinal has a point about walking bomb. It was doing 200+ damage when my character was level seven.

The Elemental AOE's are very useful for softening up the crowd in the harder difficulties, you can summon them through closed doors to see what lies beyond.
