I didn't want to have to do this, but I'm getting very frustrated. I lost my second 55+ monk in Act 2 hell today. Both times the monks were playing a build I'm extremely comfortable with as it's my SC build i've used for all of inferno.
The stats on the characters were very good for the level and a nice balance of mostly defense with decent offense mixed in.
Latest monk lost lvl 56
Unfortunately I'm running into Elite/Champ packs that are ruining me. Today it was a champ pack spawned on top of an elite pack, and they honestly just swarmed me into a corner and poof. The previous time it was just getting stomped by bad affixes.
My question to you all is thus, at 56 I though I was ok to be running around at Zultan Kulle in Act 2 Hell, but as this is 2 times I've lost chars to champ packs here I wanted to get some perspective. Is that level sufficient for act 2, or should I be trying to spend more time in act 1 or even in NM?
I had progressed because levels were getting extremely tedious to get in act 1 when I hit 54. If this should not be tedious, what could I be doing wrong to wring more XP out of previous acts? Any thoughts are appreciated.
EDIT: Affixes on the packs that got me this morning.
Champ: Arcane, Vampiric, Molten
Elite: Waller, Desecrator, Fire Chains
