If you are thinking about making a monk for end game, dont. The meta for consistant end game content consists of kiting and completely factoring out the enemy damage.
It's to the point where i put on 210% magic find gear to run with my two glass cannon mage friends that have 4700 HP and they are 10x better tanks than i'll ever be. They just blow stuff up and i just hit it once to get credit for the kill and they get sweet loot.
EVen if i obtain some sw33t epic gear or green, It will not put me over the edge to tank, or even do anything to effect the outcome of me tanking any mob past act 2
TL;DR: PLAY WIZARD / DEMON HUNTER IF U WANT TO GET PAST ACT 2 INFERNO
