Depending on resists and HP, can be enough yes

so for higher mp's (9-10) more lifesteal is required?

In order to get by MP10 with 2.7LS and 1000LOH you need 700AR+ and 7000Armor+. I farm Keys in MP10 and I use Mantra Time of Need and Reach with Keen Eye to buff my AR and Armor. The more LS and LOH you have the less AR and Armor you will need but you need to find that balance.

EDIT: I have 2000LOH and switch my offhand to get 3000LOH when I face RD.

john, around how much life are you netting from the 3 percent lifesteal? reason i am asking this is because im planning to switch to a skorn lifesteal, and with it my damage would be around 160k. Do you think a 5 percent lifesteal would be enough to sustain me without any life on hit?

i have no idea man, just asking this bc im about to gear someone elses monk.

from my experience with barb, im at 8.8% with 200k+ and its fine, i dont know anything below that :\

I onlyt have 2.8% @ 70k dps and do fine at MP8. A little slow, but definitely manageable.

And more dmg. Monsters just take forever to chop down even at 140K dps , and near 200k buffed. I think ~6% lifesteal is enough, but only if your dps is 180K+ unbuffed.

Personally I key/uber run on mp8 with no problems at all with only the sustain from my OH, mp9-10 I don't quite have the dps to bother with even though I can manage surviving with my sustain and only minimal kiting.

So 3%ls/1000loh at 140k should be perfectly fine for mp8 (certainly more than I have and I do fine), and maybe even for mp9. But mp10 might still be a little out of your reach to do comfortably unless you up that LS to 5-6%, but then you'll still want more dps in the first place to even bother dealing with the extra hp of jumping up to a higher mp lvl.

Also, keep in mind that the more dps you have the more that LS comes into play, and then the LoH just becomes a nice but unnecessary luxury on top of it.

That's plenty IF the rest of your set up is balanced.
