Combined cost of current gear ~144 Mil (Going by memory, not purchase records)
DPS Unbuffed 66,240
EHP Unbuffed 754,178
I see where you are coming from and yes, I do agree with you on your points. Gear has depreciated significantly since the purchase of most of my gear, so my price is indeed pretty inflated and I hope nobody would have to spend as much as I have to get to my level.Perhaps the point is that as more people post, it will become more clear which ones have geared with recent costs vs. old costs, and anyone looking at this for ideas on gearing cost will gravitate towards the posts that give lowest cost vs. DPS/EHP results as the new bar to be set as far as bang-for-buck. It can hopefully dispel the myth that monks necessarily have to cost a fortune to gear, when they see what can be done at low prices.Perhaps if you posted details about one of your recent sets (contained in your gearing thread), that could be a bar that people could look to as inspiration of what can be done at a low cost with the most current of prices. Seeing this information in more threads may be helpful to junior monks who have just graduated into inferno and trying to figure out gearing costs. :)
This is really well-said Nameless, and gets at my intention when starting this thread.
Just because there are thousands of factors that impact the cost-effectiveness of gear (when it was bought, if it was found, etc) doesn't mean that the concept of cost-effectiveness is flawed. I think, at the end of the day, all of us Monks are trying to find ways to improve in a cost-effective way, so having a thread that has many nuggets of wisdom from those willing to share can be beneficial.
