You can avoid those things yourself.Checked, couldn't find your lv 60 Monk.
Dodge is actually a pretty damn good stat, believe me.
EDIT: Dex pretty much complements Armor(Str) and Res(Int) just like Vit does
I did find your Paragon 35 Barb though.
Dex doesn't work for Monks as a mitigation stat. Flat out. To argue any differently means you haven't played it. What does a Monk gain when they level Paragon? 1 Str, 1 Int, 3 Dex. How does that "complement" when Dex is the major stat? Not to mention that once your Dex passes 500, you get slammed by big diminishing returns for Dex to Dodge ratio.
But hey, a Barb that gains 20% dodge with WoTB, perma-cc immunity, runs faster than every other class, ignores mob collision, and soft caps at ~200 Dodge through Paragon wouldn't know anything about that.
Next response: "you can roll Barb too". That's not the point. Point is, Dex as a mitigation stat sucks.
What are you?
First of all, I don't even play my softcore Barb anymore and haven't for almost 3 months. Secondly, I don't have any stock in softcore anymore and choose not to play, unless friends ask me to help them with ubers MP5+ on my soft DEMON HUNTER, because I don't die.
I play hardcore, my DH has been alive for close to 2 months. And I'm telling you, that Dex is actually a pretty damn good stat and will keep you alive. It doesn't work by itself, it is complemented by the others, the same way all the other stats complement each other, too
Dex is not a mitigation stat. Do you even know what mitigation means? Mitigation is to soften or lessen a blow, Dex doesn't do that, because Dex isn't mitigation. Vit isn't mitigation either, it doesn't soften a blow(it's still the same pain).
People sit here and wonder why they die to certain things, and then talk about how much res they have, yet totally neglect their armor which complements res. And both armor and res are complemented by Dex and Vit. All
of these stats are important, and it becomes plain as day when you play a well balanced character.
If your character is imbalanced, the stats aren't going to work as well as you expect them to, and you better be prepared to handle the situations when your balance is tipped the other way.
I'm starting to think that some of this top end gear is deluding people on actually understanding how to play the game through the gameplay itself, and is just letting the gear do all of the playing for them. And this isn't even some overly gear dependent game as people say.
