Diablo® III

The avg damage of approx lvl 40 Monk?

Hey all thanks for the replies!

I did a little more research and for those out there who are stlil looking to substantially up their DPS here's a little tip:

I found out that if you're dual wielding, your off hand weapon only basically only factors in the "attacks per second" stat. If the weapon is inferior to your main hand weapon you'll be calculated as attacking LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT and therefore doing less overall damage.

Bottom line is: Unless your weapons are of equal power, equipping a shield will not only increase your damage per second but also your defensive capabilities.

Lvl 52 here, dps unbuffed is 3800, buffed I believe is around 4200 or so. Running with 25 to 30 thousand health as well. Having no problems and I'm at the end of act 1 hell.

1000 dps?

what? are you stacking dexterity way above vitality?

im at 580 dps at level 37. so it makes it hard to believe that I will almost double it in 3 levels? even with new gear?


Why you stack vitality at all? I got vitality on gear when I could, but I never stacked it, even in inferno I dont stack it, i gem all dex and just try to find gear that has vitality on it. You want dex, its your primary stat for reason.

my lvl is 53 and in HELL mode
my DPS is 3.6k unbuffed and my HP is 12k
my crit on normal mobs on HELL mode is 10k and 8k on elites and bosses
so mobs are no problems since i can kill them with 2 consecutive CRIT hits

dont focus on hp increase or VIT
coz IMO offence is the best defence

and i got lifesteal fist
so hp are no problems for bosses

This is not entirely true, although somewhat. When you equip a 2nd weapon keep in mind the more attacks also equal more spirit generation. And the easiest way to see if a off hand is more dps is to just equip it and if your damage goes up on character sheet you will know. I tried shield earlier that had 110 dex on it, then put my offhand back on and my dps went up 4000. So in almost all cases if you want to do more dps you need to Dual wield, if you want to be more tanky then use a shield. But saying a shield will increase your dps as well as defense it not true. A shield will lower your dps allot if you are comparing it to a good offhand weapon, if you compare it to a crap offhand weapon then it will raise dps. At level 54 in hell mode I had 7k dps on my monk. Thats a good number to shoot for, and that may even be a bit high for what you actually need in hell.

Hope this helps.

Because stacking Dex wasn't all the rage back in May.

(By the way, I see this is your first post. Welcome to the forums. FYI, you get one mulligan.)

lvl 42 already can get a pair of -18lvl ilvl 60 weapons that allows you to sweep through hell levels. If I am not mistaken about 10k dps with dual 700dps weapons?
