Diablo® III

Letting go of STI?

I've been playing around with a lot of different things, but can't really decide that STI is worth giving up 3000 armor is just too little mitigation esp on higher MPs. Replacement suggestions would be nice.

Yeah he's saying he has 3000 armor if he doesn't use STI

Hey there, it's time for you to change STI to resolve, the math's been done and resolve will provide better protection than the gimped STI (even though it's pretty !@#$ing lame to go from 7k armor to 4k armor).

Have fun!

It's on a thread somewhere in the forums, had a lot of views.. should be able to find it. I know what i read though, unless you have an absurd (2500++) amount of DEX to feed STI with, the damage reduction from resolve will yield better results.

So OwE and resolve, what is the third passive recommended?

I use transcendance because i'm a 100% LPSS monk but people have been using exalted soul and guardian's path. Beacon of Ytar is nice too if you're alrdy set up for sustainability, the cooldown reduction will let you kill things faster.

You got a nice standard set up really. If anything i'd tell you to find a place to fit Seven sided strike in there, the skill is basically the best thing we have since they buffed it, i've been using it to take down elite packs in one cast.

Depends what you do with it, Fulminating Onslaught rune is the best for clearing big packs (hordes or huge white mob packs) while Sudden Assault is the best rune for on-target DPS.

SSS is based off of MH weapon damage, meaning a 2h monk deals much more damage than a 1h monk with the skill. Think Wave of Light. If anything, you should run the SSS with the reduced cooldown. It still hits hard, but this is basically a 2nd serenity. You don't need to go FA rune for the damage.

I would tell you to drop BoH. BoH is nice - 15% dmg, but the heal is garbage, let's face it. Blinding Flash on the other hand just got buffed in 1.0.5 with the CC changes, it is very noticable how much longer CC lasts now. Plus its a 30% damage buff, since SW locks in your total DPS when cast, of the two - BoH and BF-FitL - 15 v 30, you get a better SW damage with BF FitL than BoH BW.

Pacifism bud. You will then be hoping to get frozen, jailed, feared, stunned, because then you take 75% less damage when controlled.

Edit: sorry for double post. Oh yeah in the 4 hours of stacking to 5 in each act and then going for the warden i got 5 legendaries. Not the best in the world but at least some progress on drops. Overall very fun play session last night. And rings with crit chance of 6 max and amulets of 10 on ah already.
