I'm building a monk and need advice on how to gear for high lvls. I have a few questions and would greatly appreciate any and all advice! I'm assuming echoing fury is bis for a monk?
Being able to dual wield, do you want life steal on both weaps or is 3%ls sufficient?
Does everyone go owe and if you do, which single res is best?
Is the inna set bonus worth the loss of dps vs a mempo for the sweeping wind build?
What build is best for high mps?
the answers to all of your questions depend on your budget.
I'll answer them with the assumption you're poor and want the most cost-efficient setup.
Yes echoing fury is bis.
Most top monks advocate 3%ls and 500 loh
Yes everyone goes OWE (the 99% that is). Cold/poison/arcane/lightning are the cheapest ones.
Innas isnt worth the loss of dps, go 2piece + mempo + witching hour
anything involving fot-thunderclap and sw-cyclone
Lacunis are difficult to find with good dex, vit and resists. The good ones that have those three stats tend to be a few billion and its quite a bit cheaper to get a nice bracer with 150dex/150vit, dual resists and CC.
A rare weapon can also be BIS, all depends on the roll. The top DPS guys love EF for the bonus to AS on their off hand weapon.
I've found (IMO!) that the common setup people are claiming is actually not viable for MP10 and sould be thought of as, "Hey I get to check it out but not actually get 5NV and a key without dying a few times minimum" setup. This is what I found is actually doable without having to kite out of double AoE stacks and/or reduce dps/ weapon swap for reflect.
100k dps minimum (unless you want to spend all day killing an E)
2.25 IAS (LoH necessity. Not sure how far down you can go with this... haven't tested)
6000 Armor (STI and Hard Target fine to get this.)
650 Resist (below this and single stack AoE will reduce your HP without crazy sustain)
50% Dodge (Evasion passive to get this)
2.5% LS (at 100-130k dps)
I am guessing you can get away with 3% LS/500 LoH ONLY if you are doing 150k+ dps pre-buff. Even in this situation reflect mobs will still destroy you.
At 5500 Armor/550 Resist/125k dps (with Won Khim) unbuffed, 2.5% LS and 900 LoH (plus 500 regen) I could not farm MP10 keys without dying OFTEN. Now I have the above, and I can hang in MP10 and rarely die. However, Yellow reflect mobs still are a PITA.
