You need more HP and more Armor, July. Switch out Resolve for Seize the Initiative... that will give you 1,000 more armor right off the bat. Then find more areas on your character to add vitality or life %. Shoot for at least 35k hp, 5k armor and 500 all resist...
Cursory glance at your monk shows me that you have 23K HP. That is way too low. You will to find a way to get that to at least 35K HP (if you are well mitigated) or 40K (if you are lacking somewhere). Approximate EHP:HP ratio for a well mitigated monk should be around 12:1. A decent one (an average one with higher DPS) is typically sitting around 10:1. A poorly mitigated one can be 8:1. From what I can tell of your monk, your EHP is probably sitting no more than 300K. Far too low.
One thing you can do is to consult Silver32 for his gearing services - I highly recommend him as he definitely knows what he is talking about. Otherwise, you can try to find me in-game, but I'm not always around and I am sure he has a better grasp of market prices of items than I do.
Good deal, July. Money may not be an issue, but if it is, I would strongly consider selling your 5 radiant emeralds for ~ 120m, replacing them with 5 flawless stars for ~15m... that would give you plenty of coin to upgrade your three Inna's pieces (which seem the most obvious areas for improvement).
If you are a fan of your Inna + Lacuni setup, I'd also suggest possibly investing in a pair of Ice Climbers or rares with 220+ dex, 150+ vit and high all resist. The Nats boots don't do you a whole lot of good without the nats ring, especially since you are already at the movement speed cap.
Alternatively, keep the nats boots, invest in a nats ring and ditch the lacunis and craft until you get bracers with high dex, vit, all resist and cc.
Oh wow. Didn't even notice that. I haven't gotten around to upgrading any of my gems to Radiants! So expensive in comparison to other upgrade options. Very good suggestion indeed!
any help for me?
i think i know what to do but not 100% sure
going to change my skill crippling wave - to bells as i find i don't use it at all
i need to get more Vit at least 200
going to change out my chest for a dex / vit and 3 sockets if i can.
i realy want to go 2 1h's but they drop my dps by around 12-15k depending on what i use
been trying to craft shoulders some i have give me 5k dps but i loose 11k health
i know i can change out my belt - for one that will give me dex / vit but all the witching hours cost a penny that have dex.
i think i might just have to drop 200 AR to get in the changes i would like
but with 500k gold makes it hard - but i think i might just have to suck it up and grind as much gold as i can over a few sessions to get some bank for an upgrade at a time.
i just came back to d3 last week or so
only have 40k ish dps at the moment, even after the impulsive buying of the 2 weapons.
with my current gear, can i try mp 3/4?
what should i upgrade first? assuming the ah would be back up by this week.
As long as you're not playing hardcore, try whatever you want. Not like there's a penalty if you decide you can't handle it.
Just wanted to say, amazing guide!
I went from 350 AR, 4k armor, 26k health, 20k dps to
715 AR, 5k armor, 33k health, 55k dps with ONLY:
I had bought crap legendaries, sold them for more than double the price, followed the guide and now im super tanky and actually increased my dps by a little bit. So far I have only replaced boots, belt, chest, shoulder, but I know now, following this build, that since I have my core defenses set, my dps is gonna sky rocket as I change out my other pieces.
Honestly, a thousand thanks from a noobie monk!
