But 1.49 attack speed? Surprised you aren't weidling a 2her, lol. Trying getting close to 3.00 attack speed which lets you have MoC spammed every second and LPSS being viable healing WHILE having a screen completely filled with Cyclones....
All I read was....
Haters ganna hate

Am I the only one that caught the "buy as much gold as I can part?"
OP - congrats on some sick sick gear. I have a question: how many hours do you have logged? I ask because I feel there are many ways to generate gold in the game (some people play the AH, some sell unids, some just find and ID stuff, etc) and in general the hours played is a good indicator of the items you have.
Do mind posting pics of your gear? I'm curious to see the level of rolls necessary per slot to achieve this kind of unbuffed dps as well as price per item (I can estimate this). I'm trying to do the same thing with my barb, currently sitting at (buffed):
(1.8 - 2.3m EHP)
I have gear/pics in my thread: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6037267174
If you don't want to post here I'd like to inspect, Mikhail#1367
What do you feel is the threshold of damage in A3? I'm almost at the threshold in A2 where defense doesn't matter much (although I'm not using any LoH, just Revenge), but have a ways to go in A3.
Also, how quickly do elites go down in A3 for you with this dps setup? Is Blinding Flash + Serenity sufficient time?
Finally, did you ever sell unids or just ID them? If you sold, at which point did you cross that "opportunity cost" barrier? I figure I'll start IDing mine once most of my slots become 30m+ upgrades.
** I take it back, just looking at the screenshot OP has probably around 1bil in gear since that's all unbuffed.

It would be incredibly expensive and slow going, but there are still ways you can improve your character other than these that you've listed.
Using resources like this - http://www.d3rmt.com/guides/diablo-3-item-stat-maximum-values/
show that there will always be ways to improve until every slot has items with max stat rolls in every category thats needed and/or desired. That includes:
- dexterity, yours = 2402, cap = 3158
- crit chance, yours = 42%, cap = 44.5%
- crit damage, yours = 518%, cap = 635%
- attack speed, yours = ?%, cap = 73%
Your dps is the highest I've seen on a monk, and your dexterity is one of the highest, and yet if you were to get closer to cap rolls (of dex) on every slot it would still increase quite a bit.

3.00 attack speed? You do realize that even with perfect 11% IAS fist weapons and a perfect 9% IAS amulet, rings, and gloves setup, you would only have 2.35 attack speed, right? To take that to a more extreme level, even if you replaced the fist weapons with perfect 11% IAS daggers, you would still need 29% IAS on top of your perfect 9% amulet, rings, and gloves to hit 3.00 attack speed. I’ll let someone else spend the billions of gold necessary to achieve such a lofty goal. :P
Regardless, I will be the first to admit that it would be wonderful to have more IAS along with some life steal, life regeneration, LPSS, and other affixes thrown in. However, trifecta gear with solid stats can cost more for a single piece than my entire setup combined. I know, as I’ve bid on every piece I’ve come across that would count as an upgrade. So I had to choose between extreme DPS or a more traditional setup. Equivalently priced IAS gear would drop my DPS by roughly 30k, which I’ve had the luxury of testing since I possessed several of those pieces from the pre-nerf days before selling them to fund my current gear. Simply put, crit is far better for DPS past a certain level, as any DPS spreadsheet would show.
Again, sustainability has become less of a problem with the amount of damage I deal within one serenity and blinding flash combo. Sure, a weapon with life steal or LPSS would be nice, but it’d be more of a luxury than a necessity, and one that would cost hundreds of millions of gold for one that output similar DPS. As others have stated, with a high DPS setup, you really can kill most packs before they kill you.
I’ll address some of the other posts after work.
It is not that hard. I have about 378 hours played, and have saved up 72M. I have had two big ticket items I found, one being a Demi Lich, and the other being a quiver. Sold both to the tune of 16M. How did I make my cash? I setup my gear, so that Act 2 gets melted insanely fast. From that point, I sell all of my UNID to a few regular buyers. I keep all rings/ammys to ID myself. Other than that, I get 200k per armor, 250k-400k per 2H, and 400k per 1H. Add to that, all of the sub 1K level 61+ items that I salvage for Exquisite Essence sales, and all of the Tomes of Secrets and it adds up insanely quick.
I'm at 72M now, without buying any gold, and that is with spending a decent amount on upgrades as time has progressed ( ~ 10-12M ).

^ What he said. I did/am doing something similar. It's hard to believe with that many hours logged you didn't find anything over 2m. I've sold tons of unids and even out of the items I've id'd myself I've found ~50m worth with about 350 hours played. Collected 33m too (had a now-retired NM/Hell gold find DH that can bring in 500k/hr).

I'm at 93k damage unbuffed - def possible. I've also only spent 150m combined on both of my weapons - and have a wand selling for 400m so I will also be breaking the 100k damage mark soon. I have not spent a single penny on my character.
here's my gear and stats if people want to compare to his, or what not - since he hasn't shown his gear.
