It's all pretty straight-forward. Survivability is kind of a mess of reducing enemy damage, self healing, damage boosters that leave nothing alive to hit me, and other things I forget. I figure I also can't be hit while using SSS, and tempest rush is a pretty cool gtfo ability that i can spam for free. I can even use it as a gap closer without wasting spirit. So, I don't have any passive spirit regen because I have the one spirit ability with the big CD, and the kick (cause why monk if you only punch?) which can be a little more spammable with an awesome knockback (one of my fav mechanics). I saw that the mantra healing was reduced from every hit to "up to 30%," but I would still like to try it.
I'm not crazy about monk passives in general, but I will definitely get lots of use out of the 3 I chose. Let me know what you think. I know it may not be inferno-worthy because everyone seems to describe those builds as "spam defensive crap and do a little kiting damage when you can." I just want it to be well-rounded and fun with some of the coolest looking abilities.
