I've been amazed at the drop of prices in the auction house in recent times. There was a time when it was difficult to build a Monk on budget gear. In earlier patches, it was taken as gospel that you simply couldn't build a Monk to beat inferno without spending millions. I really don't think that was ever the case, although when I first beat Inferno, I only had about 10K in DPS and a ton of LoH, LpS and resistance and it was a real grind fest.
Well, whatever the case was in the past, I deceided I would try to see how things stand right now for our newest brothers just entering Inferno. There's been a few posts lately about building a Monk on a budget. I decided I would try to see what I could do for the absolute minimum. I set the bar at no more than 5000 gold per item (and no items for my follower).
The stats I wound up with (Buffed only by enchantress) are:
I did a quick run and was able to play through to the Skeleton King and kill him on MP1 with no deaths, skipping no Elite packs. For the most part it was a cake walk. I originally intended to see if I could play through the whole game, but honestly MP1 clealy wasnt challenging at all.
Just for a sanity check, I killed Ghom. Then I killed Ghom and Diablo on MP3, just to be sure. For MP3, I used Keen Eye and Hard Target for major defense, so those two took a while (especially Diablo) but I was neever really in danger of dying.
