Sixth Sense broken ? Patch 10.

Yup everything looks good, except they broke http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/monk#!..W
Stacking crit with Sixth Sense = dmg, dodge, crit procs http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/monk#aice!!bcbb
Stacking dex with Seize Initiative = dmg, dodge, %dmg reduction, physical resist, more powerful runes
Is the dodge you get from crit significantly higher then stacking Dex?
Do crit and dex come from different sources so you don't have to choose between them? It was a promising passive, now http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/monk#!..X seems way better. Not JUST Seize initiative I only used it in this example.... Am I missing something?

Crit chance is no longer in the stats... What this does mean though is that by stacking dexterity...

Monks with the seize initiative passive will have:

High Damage

High Dodge

High-ish Armor

If a Barb has 100 STR and gets 100 armor from it (for easy numbers sake)

A monk with a DEX of 100 only needs a STR of 75 to have equal armor.

So a Barb has 1000 STR!!! oh no!! The monk has 1000 DEX!!! He only needs a STR of 750 to match the armor granted, but will also have a high dodge... Much higher than the barb, and the damage comparison will still be the same as well... something about that just seems wrong in theory...

The stuff presented on these tooltips is not final and is only barely keeping up with actual patching going on in Beta, let alone the release model of the game. The part you're missing is just that the math is not final.

*edit* I just caught my your/you're error. I have made penance for my sins by biting off one of my fingers. I am sorry Grammulon, Lord of Grammar!

Shahamut I'm not sure what you're* trying to explain. Crit still exists and barbs have http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#!b

Bluewolf, I agree.
