Scrapz is trustworthy.

Or maybe you missed him donated a set that he put together with his own money?

Scrapz is a well established member of the Monk community and is held in high esteem by everyone in these parts. He has helped many a poor Monk with either advice or gear and recently held a free giveaway for a rather nice set.

I know that giving gold to random strangers is not the smartest move in this game's society, but if I needed his services, I wouldn't hesitate to trust him with all I had. Dudu, please do some research next time you're about to post some negative remark.

Maybe if I had geared your monk for you, you wouldn't have wasted your RM :(

Always at least one of you in these threads. Doesn't contribute anything then bashes others who do. A+ multiple star stickers for you my special child!

Thanks for the vouches Piffle and Laurelynd!

i'll vouch for Scrapz too.

i have 2.5 million... doubt you could find me an upgrade for that though... bearing in mind i'm now at the point where i only consider items with 300 plus Life per Second... but i'm a weird one.

happy holidays everyone! Scrappy Claus will fix you up!

let me expand on this: if i could find a good upgrade, i would absolutely sell my radiant star emerald to pay for it.

... i also hate a drop in overall protection. so yes, i know inna's helm ups my DPS, but not without dropping my mitigation...

Do we have to be poor/low dps to qualify for this?

I have about 130 million (more pending AH sales) and i'm curious what ideas you would have.

Usually wield a 2h skorn with LS which puts me around 162k unbuffed, not the DW on my profile

Thanks

Is it possible for me to get to 100k+ dps with nice survivability with a 25mil budget? Ideally I'd like about 120k, but even 100 is great. I'm currently sitting at 72k ish. :)

heh. scrappy claus, i like that..

I doubtt I could upgrade you for 2.5m =X. However it looks like you are going to LPS spec which really limits gear choices.

Here's my quick analysis of your character.

1. Sustain - most of your sustain comes from LPS, 4000 is quite a bit. At higher mp levels, you'll need to LEECH alot more life to survive. 4000 will not cut it. I'm leeching 6000-12000 per hit to survive. Going to dual wield LS will not only net you better dps gain but much more choices when it comes to gearing.

1. Too much resist. 650+ is fine for the majority of the people. I like to keep around 700-800 but it's hard to gain DPS when having a goal of 1000+ resist.

You're able to mitigate most damage, but what happens when you're surrounded and getting pounded by a ton of enemies. You need a large life pool + high leech to survive. I Would drop 200 resist in place of 200+ vitality instead.

No, I'm willing to try and give advice to anyone who needs it.

At your DPS, I'm sure you know what you're doing but you're what I would call a glass cannon. Not an insult as I was one until 1.05 hit and I wanted to do mp10 ubers.. It's time to gear up for a balanced toon.

At this point I can only suggest you:

- Raise your vitality to 950.

- Raise your dex by 200

- Replace your bracers, minimum of 120dex/100 vitality / 120+ resist..

- Replace your mainhand with a HIGH dps( dmg range) weapon. Yes, your weapons give u massive dps WHEN you crit but pay attn to those white numbers, your avg damage is very low.. Also sweeping winds works off the DMG RANGE of the weapon, so having a high damage range is your mainhand if definitely beneficial.

You could always go with a Echoing Fury that will instantly jump your dps by 10-25K. and give you +.2x APS. With a faster APS and 2.8 LS, you should be healing just the same while destroying stuff even faster.

I'm in the market for a high DPS main hander, as I said though I usually use a 1368dps, 5.6 LS, 160CD, 300 Dex Skorn. Can't find anything I want for my budget yet.

Vitality has ever been my problem... if i put OWE back on i go to like 620AR.

With my skorn APS is about 1.38.

Thanks. I'll have to chuck my regular gear on before logout and get you to have a quick look. It's annoying I just looked at my profile and I wondered where my AR went... Wrong gear lol.

These are your +EHP points..
+1 Vitality 549.44
+1 Resist All 576.31

1. Inna's vast expanse /w 210+ VIT will run you 40-80M. Will give you more EHP then your current piece, freeing up other slots to get more damage. The life percentage is negligable when it comes to this piece so shop smart, a 230 vit /w 12 percent is equivalent to say a 270 vit /w 10 percent (just a example) but just because 270 is displayed, it may end up costing 20m more.

2. Inna's helm - go for double resistance = 100+ + 80ish vit. EHP will be more effective using resist in this slot..

Overall set looks good so same advice as the other dude. Just up your dex to a minimum of 120 per slot while keeping the same specs...
