As a person who is only in Nightmare, I have no right to say anything regarding the difficulty of Inferno or Hell, but isn't there anyone out there, like me, who is excited to get their !@# handed to them on a silver platter? I know that a lot of people are saying monks and barbs blow for inferno, and I'm not gonna say they don't. But isn't raging about not being able to beat something and then farming for ages to beat it, part of the Diablo lifestyle? Again, I'm not sayin people need to chill and farm more, I'm just askin, who has the confidence to say, I'm gonna beat that $%^- regardless of how hard it is?
That being said, I personally don't like running more than one of those defensive abilities, is it possible to build a good DPS monk that can survive Hell and possibly Inferno without kiting too much?
The build I use right now is:http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/monk#beRiTS!bcV!bZaZZZ
I dual wield and so far I haven't had much trouble with gear that has good dex values with some vit here and there.
Edit: I swap beacon for Sixth Sense occasionally when the situation calls for it.
