Also, I'mt trying to buy from vendor pieces with the 3rd stats : STR or dam mitigation
Keep us posted
I'll try to add you so we can tag along. I go Mp1-2 i think in NM
I'm a bit behind you because when you first started I was levelling an MP10 monk that only made it to level 7 LOL
I'm in Act 3, level 31 I think, and I recently switched from 2h to SnB. I've been playing on MP3 and beat Grom without any issues. I'm just about to face Siegebreaker.
I don't know JACK about Monks so hopefully I'm running a build that makes sense. I have a lot more DEX than VIT though so maybe I'm playing it risky? I've only used Serenity when a fallen maniac is about to explode near me or when I'm fighting a boss. Is that the general way it is used? Or do you keep it up regularly like the mantra?
I've been using seven sided strike for the nice offensive boost. I see you using the mystic ally. Is that to have another way of not taking all the damage? Ergo like the templar? Something out there tanking for you?
I need to try wave of light. I've been using the lashing tail kick but I'm sure it's substandard by this point in the game.
12/09/2012 05:54 AMPosted by ZlotI just got my Monk to level 30. Nothing has been a challenge so far, not even on MP 5. I am considering trying Mp10 but I don't wanna make the mistake that kills me just for better loot and exp. I recommend LoH gems for weapons since constant heals are great for survival.

Hey, glad you're still staying alive. I'd recommend playing hell at MP0 even with your reduced level weapon and see how it goes before you raise the difficulty. It's easy to feel like a god when you first get that high DPS weapon, but it doesn't make the monsters hit any less hard.
I actually almost lost my wizard in A1MP0 hell last night because I was melting everything with a 580 DPS weapon and got careless. I was still in my cain's set (which I immediately swapped), but it's still a cautionary tale.
Of course, you can handle MP1 or 2 if you're careful. Hell, I did MP10 on acts 1 and 2 of hell with my WD, and that was my first hardcore character. But I was MP10 from the start, and WDs are easier than monks. Anyway higher MP levels are doable in hell, but I wanted to provide a word of warning since you've been going MP0 so far.
I agree totally with Sunshine.
Whenever I go to new content (read new Act or difficulty level), I go MP zero to get a feel of the monsters, especially Elites as I play also purist and will not have a - requirement weapon until I grind one.
It has slowed my leveling I agree (44 atm I think) but I intent like IO to make it to 60 with this one (after solving my DC lag problem I think)
Only thing is I dont know how people get to 60 in 7-9 hours when I get there in 35 maybe, playing mp10 on normal and maybe mp2-3 in nightmare ( i dont own a Cain set)

My wizard is at 13 hours now - level 55 in A2 hell. She's had the benefit of the AH (Cain's set) and farmed gear from my lvl 60s (star ruby in her helm), and I haven't been repeating any content. She's had + movement speed the whole time, too. I don't think you can get to 60 in 7-9 hours if you're playing solo (I sure as hell can't!).
