Monk Help

I am currently in Nightmare with my monk, just starting out. I'm playing with a friend who is a Wizard.

My plan right now is to stack:

Life on Hit > Dexterity > Vitality > %health

The best amethysts I can make in both my weapons and my helm, and emeralds in everything else.

Right now I am duel-wielding 2 weapons.

So my questions for those of you who've gotten a handle on your monks, does this sound good? Would you suggest anything different? Would you suggest a shield over duel wield and why?

Thanks so much. :)

Pretty much you can go without any shields until end game hell.

Nightmare should be stacking as much dex as you can. I dont think there will be very high life on hit in those lower levels. Almost better to stack VIT.

Nightmare is still fairly easy to deal with. Skills like resolve and chant of resonance will boost your survival and defense.

Look for strong weapons and just stack dex and vit. Save your money for end game life on hit gear if you can.

Resistance is god. Try to stack one type (i do lightning, but that was a random choice) and use the passive "one with everything". Also use 'mantra of healing' with glyph 'time of need'.

You may need to be slightly higher lvl to use all that, but the key point is: resistance, resistance, resistance.

Good Luck!
