Diablo® III

How do spirit generators compare?

While all active spirit generator produce 6, from tool tips, some spirit generator seems faster than others, is that the case? If so do we have timing for each?

Is the spirit generation on Resonance making it worth while (even if you were to not use any mantra)?

How does the 20% extra spirit generation on 2h'ed Guardian path compare to not having that passive and dual-wielding?

Is there equipment that grant additional spirit generation? If so, is it passive or is it augmenting the one of the spirit generator?

Would passive spirit generation only monk build be viable? By example if equipment can grant passive generation, combined with Guardian Path, would one be able to reach a point where it may be possible to play it similar to how WD/Sorc use their mana?
(if so it might be interesting for someone wanting to play more of a support role)

Timing?

But yes, some are faster then others.. Fists of thunder being the fastest.

In theory yes, but we havn't actually used it.

Also, it doesn't work without a mantra.. read the passive carefully.

How does the 20% extra spirit generation on 2h'ed Guardian path compare to not having that passive and dual-wielding?

We don't know, can't test it yet.

But since you attack noticeably faster dual wielding, I think having that passive with a 2 hander would just even it out.

Is there equipment that grant additional spirit generation? If so, is it passive or is it augmenting the one of the spirit generator?

Yes and it's passive.

Would passive spirit generation only monk build be viable? By example if equipment can grant passive generation, combined with Guardian Path, would one be able to reach a point where it may be possible to play it similar to how WD/Sorc use their mana?

Probably, seeing as blizzard is trying to make many possibilities viable... and it's actually harder to make the monk into a support role then it is to play as a DPS like the other classes.

Crippling Wave with Golden feels like one of the better generators, when stacking crit.
Exploding Palm w/ Golden also could be outstanding when used properly but I prefer this skill with Indigo.

Mantra of Retribution: Golden has some potential, I prefer Evasion tho

Mystic Ally: Golden another good form of spirit gen.
