The quickest and easiest solution Lylirra is to just give ranged a 30% damage reduction to ranged attacks which would include RD.
I have yet to ever see any barb or monk complain about it, it's always been ranged.
Yaaaaah, no >_> Monks don't have up to 12% lifesteal like barbs ;)
Guess I'm gonna be the first monk 'comlaining', aka describing what the problem is for me ;)
Running around with up to 158K DPS unbuffed, depending on the gear I am using. Which means when accompanied by my Scoundrel and his "hysteria", 15% more damage from my healing spell, 30% from blinding flash and 24%/48% more from mantra of conviction, I easily hit 350K DPS (+mantra) when encountering an elite mob.
So, jumping in, popping my buffs and the second or third hit kills me. So I got used to pop serenity everytime I jump into a group of elites and kill them within 4 seconds.
But there are situations with high HP elites or double packs with serenity on cooldown... >_>
Using only a butcher's sickle with 2.50 life steal at the moment but even when swapping my amulet for a life on hit one as well as my Natalya's ring for one with life on hit on, it doesn't help anymore.
Got additional weapons in my stash with additional lifesteal and VIT, an Inna's helm with All Res, an Ouroboros with Lifesteal and so on. For MP5 to MP7 i already need to go down to 140K or even 120K DPS (with Stone of Jordan) just to have the lifesteal to keep me alive fighting 5 elite packs before doing Ubers.
In addition I need to use One with Everything and Seize The Initiative (more resistances, more armor) and still: I am killing myself in three blows. :/
(~520 All res, 5300 Armor, 2,5% Life steal)
Reflect is a fun mechaninc, but when you're at a point in this game with above 150K DPS, sub 15 minutes Act 3 speed runs and just charging from pack to pack with +50% movement speed you're dead before you had the chance to read what affixes the mobs have.
Now imagine a monk that fuels his life bubble by lifesteal and you get teleport, fast, minion, reflect damage elite mobs and got your serenity on cooldown or you play on MP7 and can't kill them within 4 seconds. That is the situation which makes you feel absolutely helpless.
Monks cannot kite. Whenever we can't facetank and have to run away, we're ash.
