Diablo® III

Monk > Barb. MP10 monk No Serenity + Guide.

so my monk has around 100k dps unbuffed, breezing through MP10. Die very little.
I take around 2 minutes on blue packs, and just about 4 minutes to down the atrocious HP of the champion.

I will include a stats guide at the end section.

EDIT : As requested by the disbelievers and trolls below, here is the video proof.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WROcUHocs4

(would have made it longer, but I only have 15 minutes youtube video time.)

[NOTE:
This is not about "farming" MP10,
because Nobody farms MP10, it's only for a challenge.]

This vid is to show that Monk is OP too and can do MP10 (with the right skill setup)(recorded with 91k dps)

my barb, which is my 2nd main, has 94k dps unbuffed,
very similar stats as my monk, but can only do up to MP7-8.
They both have about the same resists, barb has more LoH, more LS, more speed.
But I still do better on monk.

I run WW spec on barb, still slower than Monk's killing speed.

for higher MPs, on barb I Have to use either Warcry or Crushing Advance.
now with monk, I don't even use serenity until MP8 and above.

and my monk does not even use the overrated PoS Inna set, and not a single OP legendary.

and I do not use RMAH, (watch video for proof in the credits)
It's knowing how to gear right with stats micro management, and which pieces yields the most potent stats. Along with snipe bidding with a stopwatch, gets the job done. >:D

Normally, it's barely possible to do MP10 with 100k dps.
But get this,
There is no class, no build, no kind of gear, that can clear a room as fast as a monk when he's marked the elites with Exploding Palm.

Once you've geared right, and mastered the Monk, you are a killing machine of the highest order.

```````````

btw, this is just my posting account, it only has a lvl 57 barb...

this is main profile,
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/CountFury-1192/hero/9125843
my barb's stats is not updated and all messed up in the profile, so is the build, but I have 94k dps with barb.

peace.

===========================================

p.s.
to the monks out there who are scared and won't buy gears, afraid of the OWE thing..
well, stop being scared and just DO it.

GUIDE for Balanced Monk Route.

EDIT 2 : As requested by a poster below, I will cover some stats that will make it possible for monks to do MP10. (although there is no point except for epeen, lol.)

Ok,
My gearing is neither Tanker nor DPS,
I walk the line of the 3rd path, Balance.
The route of the Zen monk.

I call this gearing route:

Lightning Sustenance.
with the emphasis on attack speed and mobility.
What you want, is BALANCE.

================================

HP : at least 35k, 50k is too much. 43k is the Sweet spot.
DPS : at least 77k (if using this build below, no joke).
without this build, then at least 125k (for MP10)
100k DPS should be your endgame goal for non-cheaters (non-RMAH users) and try to get as close to it as possible.

Armor : 5000. 4k is too little, 6k is too much.
Resistance : at least 500 unbuffed, yes that's all you Need.
625 is the sweet spot, 750 is overkill.

Melee Damage Reduction : Get 10%.
Range Damage Reduction : Get 5%.
CC reduction : none.

STR : get 500.
INT : optional, having some wouldn't hurt. 500 is optional optimal goal.
DEX : at least 1750. End goal is around 2500
VIT : at least 850.

Armor stat : get 2 or 3 gear pieces with the stat Armor.
and the reason why I'm telling you to get 500 STR, is because it's not hard to get a few points of STR in a few pieces to get 500,
that is 500 armor gain right there, and counters the STI nerf we just had.

MOVEMENT SPEED : 12% is fine, cap is good but not necessary.
ATTACK SPEED : at least 1.9, non negotiable. (this is the important one)
Crit Chance : at least 33% (making 1 out of 3 hits a crit)
Crit Damage : 200% is all you need.

PICK UP RADIUS : 4-7 yards.
HEALTH GLOBE BONUS : at least 3.5k.

LIFE ON HIT : 500
LIFE STEAL : 2.5
LIFE REGEN : 500

if LoH alone, then 1200
if LS alone, then 2 weapons with LS

LIFE PER SPIRIT SPENT : 0
This route doesn't use LPSS

==========================

With this system, you do NOT want to over heal,
an example of Overheal is to use 2000 LoH and do MP2.

No, you want JUST RIGHT healing, heal enough to be full, the rest of stats to meet defensive requirements, everything else on attack speed and DPS.

==========================

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

this build uses Offense as Defense.
Choose 1 of these 2 mantras, Conviction Overawe, and Evasion Backlash.

This build stacks attack speed, so the damage of backlash will be increased.

We dual spirit generators and use Combination Strike.
Thunderclap + Foresight. (34% dps buff total)

Combination Strike, is godly, but not many people understand that.
Use this build, and approach elite pack, attack them, stop attacking, look at your dps, see if it goes down. ;)
ssssssshhhhhhh.
The first rule of Combination Strike is, we do not talk about Combination Strike. ;)

Faith in the Light + Sweeping Wind Cyclone. (cast flash first...)
Exploding Palm - The Flesh is Weak or Impending Doom.

Hes probably telling the truth, but hes playing Hell MP10.
Monk has the fastest killing speed no doubt in lower MP due to the 10% passive MS buff.

If hes playing inferno, hes trolling.

post your real account then..


As a high end monk (MP5/6) I'd love to see the real account as well.
I'm curious to see just how much better my gear need to get in order to farm better than a barb.

Feel free to message me in game if you are opposed to sharing profile on a public forum.
Either that or just describe your key stats (DPS, LOH, CHC, CHD, Dext, VIT, RA, Armor, IAS, any other notables as well).

That build n gears r not going to kill MP10 Inferno elites in 1 minute. Not even close.

I see a barb with 90k+ dps, 2.3% LS, 200 LoH, and 600 life regen....

A WW barb needs more than that

erm, I said in the OP that it's a troll spec I'm wearing, and profile not updated.


rofl... you kidding me?

nothing to see here. Just claims without proof

Doesn't matter what spec you had really, if you only had 97k dps, you're not going to kill inferno mp 10 elite in 1 minute.
Reply Quote
Atleast i am showing you what skill set he has.
You are claiming to kill mp 10 inferno only saying what dps number you had.
You said you have pro skill set but is unable to show or tell us what the skill set is.
Don't wanna look like an idiot? Get some fact shown n back up yourself.

successful troll is successful troll i guess.

If you were actually posting on the account, had the real gear on, and linked a video. Someone might care. Right now you're just a barb troll.

Instead of responding to posts like that, how about you respond to stuff like

I'd also be interested in hearing what you've managed to make work for you. I don't want to discount what you can do but if all you're going to do is trade insults with people after linking to another profile that doesn't even reflect what you're actually using, it's kinda difficult to take anything you say seriously.

Profile should update in no time, check back later..

but here's the build I run.
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/monk#abhYVS!UgX!acccac

no serenity. I don't use serenity cuz I can kite.
With the buffed dps and my 2.3 attack speed, I generate insane amount of cyclones to get lifesteal from. Generating fast spirits and mark the whole room with exploding palm, kill 1, the rest dead.

without serenity, I have higher dying chance, but if you're careful and know what to do, the speed outweighs the danger.
