Is won khim lau worth it?

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/nerdstomp-1234/hero/14847749

Wanna replace the rare with a 900+dps with 20+light dmg with LS/Open socket, it says I lose the 9-10k dps for the ones im looking at but is the hidden dps with the 20 percent lightning dmg increase worth it? Or should I just get a better rare?

You lose 10k dps, from 165 to 155 but 155 x 1.2 (from 20% increase) = 186, so it's actually a 20k dps gain.

I love my WKL, sadly i need 100m to upgrade mine.

Edit: I'm on EU servers and just bought a secondary set with Skorn for xp farm.

My WKL stats are:
929 dps
6% lightning damage
24% lightning skills damage
287 dexterity
socket

Yea really sad so many people don't get WKL because they cant see the hidden dps so they assume its a loss when really its a huge gain.

I have a similar question:

I just bought a inna's reach for 50k, just cause it was so cheap i wanted to try it out. I currently use WKL with socket and a rare fist with socket on second hand. The thing is the Inna's reach i got has 1400 dps, 350 dex and a socket. Knowing my build currently uses FoT-Thunderclap and SW-Cyclone, what will be best?

That's as good as it gets for WKL...

WKL's paper dps sucks, but YOU will see a difference in how hard your FoT and cyclone hits.

Yep, I did a ton of testing on it - the damage it adds is considerable. Plus it especially favors high crit builds as more tornados spawn = more lightning damage = uber.

+1 for the WKL, suggest looking for one with 60+ LPSS over LS if you use Transendece passive. A lot cheaper.

LPSS monk with 60 LPSS + socket WKL here and this man tells the truth.

To be fair, it is more like 75% of the WKL bonus to your dps.

Your FoT is ~50% of your DPS.
Your SW is ~25% of your DPS.
Your Cyclone is ~25% of your DPS.

SW is not effected.

Therefore: 75% of WKL bonus to total DPS.

It's worth it until Blizzard decides to "promote" build diversity by nerfing FoT.

You even saying that makes me want to run and hide.

Please no :(
