Any flying dragon monks out there?

Just to mix things up, I am thinking about building an attack speed monk with a flying dragon. I believe the double attack speed proc has no internal cooldown, so more attack speed = more procs. Curious to hear anyone's experience with it. I am looking to build a set on maybe a 500 mil budget, and just breeze through like mp 5 or 6 with it. I am also considering getting a non-LS so I can get both socket and crit damage. I am thinking LS might not be necessary on the mid-mps if I stack some lps and loh elsewhere.

I seem to remember there being a guide a while back somewhere with a guy using a flying dragon over a skorn. Only problem is finding the perfect FD to use, seems most people just brimstone them.

I have a high CD + LoK one if you want it for some testing. Just add me in game.

You've got to find a REALLY good one w/o sustain imo. make lpss/globes work and you can do mp8 comfortably i think.

I have 2 good ones (1.2K DPS) one with LS+CD and one with LOH+Socket.
Only got them because they have high CC on Tempest Rush (good for SW generating more cyclones), but that is not enough to make them more attractive than my big LS Skorn. The high CD (170%+) and Socket in the Skorn are certainly superior assets.

However, if you are on a budget, the FD are viable for TR and have, for example, a buff to something you use, like bells CC.

I really don't see any interest in using a 2H for speed - it's gotta be a pair of CD+Socket fast 1H weapons, eventually one of them being an LS EF (but EF has the problem of fear)

It's proc rate is very low and last only for a short time. Probably once every 20 attacks? Hope you're not thinking of chaining the double-strikes.

the proc rate is super random imo. with my experience. sometimes would occur several times in a matter of minutes and other times it would take forever to proc.

Yup. Proc lasts ~4.5 seconds I believe. I played with them as soon as they came out. Stacking attac-speed works but it's just so random. MP10 is most certainly doable with other good gear support. These days you can do MP10 with good mitigation and only a 60 LpSS helm.
