Well I wanted to blaze through the maps with tempest rush and kill elites quickly. They don't have to die in 5 seconds or anything like that I just don't want to spend 2-3 minutes per pack.
Masterbeta is spirit regen gear expensive?
I don't think so. I think you can gear up quite nicely to get through MP0 efficiently.
When it comes to farming XP, MP0 is good enough. It's about xp/hr.
I beefed up my monk in two stages. Stage 1 is complete, that is where I am at now :)
The process included getting as much DPS as I could on a budget w/o dying.
I gave up a lot of vit, life sustain, resists and armor.
As I build up DPS i farmed MP0 faster and faster and faster till I am where I am today.
Now that I can calk walk through MP0/1 (haven't test beyond 2), time to save up gold for LS/VIT/Armor.
It was a fun journey. Not saying how I did was the efficient or the best, just saying it worked for me. And you are exactly where I was about 6 weeks ago or so :)
I also think the build I'm using is EXTREMELY effective. Before the 4pc Inna's, I had Exalted Soul instead of Seize the Initiative.
I tried TR a few times and to keep it UP enough to smash mobs and not run out of spirit is something that needs some getting used to.
A build like this with a templar gets you great up time but derps your DPS: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/monk#acXSgQ!Ubc!aZbYYZ
