- first of all, back there, you didn't start with discussing builds,
you started by talking !@#$ on my guide, myself, as well as the CMs that support us.
I never said how I started but truthfully I started out with criticisms that you couldn't handle.
- you're out of your place and need to check yourself, because from your 24k dps and poverty gear, noone's gonna take you seriously. You're way out of your league when it comes to criticism.
He is trying to be cute some more. Get over it. If you can't be civil and explain yourself without flaming me I am just going to start reporting you every time. Compose yourself before you come back here please.
now, this, is the build that you wanted to discuss. Quoting here from the guide.
Nope, I didn't create this thread to discuss your fantasy boot camp ideas and larping sessions. I came here to discuss the following build choices...
Build#7 - Sword of the Seeker
(Balanced Tank Dodge Build)
Jedi Discipline training version
Cool flair, and I mean that. what I still don't understand is why would you supposedly try to train someone to use skills that aren't present in the training model? That makes no sense. That's like teaching someone to play basketball and then tell him to play golf. It's so wrong. We aren't discussing this though. Not here at least. What we are discussing is build choices.
Now about your querry on the passives :
at the pinnacle of a monk's mastery, he detaches himself from both OWE and STI,
having acquired good resistance and armor without them.
Thus freeing up space for more tactic passives.
That's what I was looking for. Thank you for stating it better than me. I totally agree in a way. Eventually you won't need OwE or STI if you build your character right. I call it hipster monkness though.
i'll take a look at the true build soon and see if I agree with your choices but as it stands I do not like your training build whether it be for training purposes or not.
Now to further explain my choices.
Blinding Flash: Searing Light, this was chosen because it performs like dodge in the sense that you take no damage if they miss. Dodge cannot mitigate all damage in the game and therefore to build a character soley around dodge isn't good.
Hard Target gives you 70% bonus armor when used with Keen Eye. You have Keen Eye by the way. You don't have STI though. The feedback damage is nice on Backlash, I won't refute that, but it is hardly the cause of a monsters ko. Plus, you could go MoR: Retaliation and stack thorns for better feedback damage. All in all for hipster monkness I would rather do MoR: Retaliation over backlash.
Hard Target is amateur.
didn't you build the training model for amateurs?
And lastly, you're using combination strike without sweeping wind,
so it's trash.
Combo Strike and SW is a nice way to go but I deviated from SW because of the whole hipster monkness mentality. Also, because you don't have it. Remember I tried to stay within the boundaries of your build ideas.
I was really hoping you would mention that I used SSS with the pandemonium rune. I used this to control the battlefield which is good for tanks in D3 imo. Just mo though.
and as a training build for beginners,
one wouldn't have the gear to drop both STI and OWE yet.
Again, I'll look at the second one soon because of this. I still wouldn't advise people to train with skills that they won't use though.
