Best in Slot Gear for Farming high mp?

Hi,

I have decided to switch over to my monk from my 95 barb to farm with. I currently am just using exp rings and farming mp0 for exp to quickly hit 100. After that I want to start buying her best in slot pieces and was wondering what you all think I should aim for?

I currently have almost 800m saved up but I don't want to waste money buying anything that is not best in slot. I know I could get some serious upgrades for 100-200m but would have to later replace eventually with best in slot pieces, so I think ima just farm and save up and buy one best in slot at time, or something like that.

so what should I aim for? What is a good combination of stats that I am aiming to get, 3-5% life steal? 500-800 resist? more/less? Do I need loh or no? I have no idea what is the best to farm high mp levels.

Look at my gear, most of them are 95% best in slots, except for one ring, helm, bracer, and chest, everything else are > or around 100m
You want mempo for your helm, and a good Lacuni for bracer

800 won't buy you much, but it can gear you to similar level as I am for sure.

those are best in slot, you would want to get a LS Skorn as well..

Look at my monk, I can solo mp10 including bosses
He s balanced as they come, not pictured is my 9% ias litany ring (replaces hellfire) best ring EHP imo, and w/ purple gem in helm I'm 56k hp

I believe balance, a toon that never dies, is key to being "godly" and farming what you want

56k HP
580 all Res
5800 armor
52% cc
458% CD
2.55 APS
2.7% LS
919 LOH
741 LPs
11% melee reduction
7% elite/boss damage reduction
34% movement speed
213k dps unbuffed

BiS is certainly a 1.8APS White dagger ... but I am sure they will fix that at some point ;)

I few corrections:

-afaik 66 is the max Average Damage can roll
-rare rings can max roll dex+vit of 100+100, not 89 which is Natalya's Reflections max
-rare necklaces, same as rings
-Lacuni's, same as rings
-I imagine (don't quote me) that a 950 dps 6/25 CD+socket WKL would contribute more EDPS (not sure if LS+socket would too, but its a possibility)

Unfortunately OP, most NEAR BiS items cost more than 800m A PIECE lol. The 3 slots which contribute the most DPS though (in case you wanna start there) are probably neck + weapons.

The top contributor if I had to venture a guess, would be a top end Won Khim Lau with something like 940-50 dps, 6/25 light dmg rolls, 3 LS (my preference) or 90+ CD, and a socket.

i dont know about that.. if all the rest of eq is BiS already (no need to swap), then you have this 2 options

1. 1.8 dagger + 10 cc shield (swapped from LS skorn)
2. 1.5 dual daggers high DPS + LS + LoH

I got the feeling that (2) combined dps from FoT+SW outdamage (1) SW only. but i have no maths to back this up. it's practically impossible to get the full BiS gears so I won't go any further into this min maxing theory.

my opinion of best of BiS gear is
Memphis of Twilight (6% CC)
Inna's Vast Expanse (200 DEX/100 VIT/80 AR)
The Witching Hour (200 DEX/100 VIT/80 AR)
Inna's Temperance (200 DEX/100 VIT)

Rare glove (300 DEX/100 VIT/80AR/10CC/50CD/9IAS)
Rare amulet (50+ AVG DMG/10CC/100CD/9IAS/89DEX/80AR)
Rare ring (50+ AVG DMG/6CC/50CD/9IAS/89DEX/80AR)
Lacuni Prowler (100 DEX/80AR/6CC)

thanks for the correction. WKL is probably BiS but in an ideal system, you'd want the setup that can adapt to any skill builds =p

Skorn over 2 1handers? If so can you explain why? And why do you have your higher dps weapon in offhand? Can you explain that, I feel like I am missing something with cyclones or something :)

Just like to say thanks to everyone for such great ideas. I def bookmarked some profiles and this gives me some goals to work towards. What piece do you guys think I should replace first on my set? I was thinking maybe neck, since its my barbs neck and I got it long time ago.

For SW, there is no mainhand/offhand. It is ACTIVE hand when you cast it.

Yea I bought a 1500 one with crit for this purpose, I swap to start up SW and then just keep it up with my 4 piece innas right now. I found it great for grinding mp0 , with my 2 exp rings I am averaging around 50m/hour. But soon ima be 100 and then ima start gearing for high mp levels.

What do you guys think I should replace next?

Question seeing we're on this topic

Majority of monks state taht you'll need minimum 150k unbuffed dps for mp10 so that ubers do not enrage.

well, different builds will have different buffed damage.

Is 150k unbuffed dps using the standard cookie cutter build? (my profile is probably still showing my TR gear)
