Okay, I know I'm supposed to stay away as part of Lent (my decision), but I've also been popping my head in here now and then to keep myself abreast of developments, but staying away from posting and not logging into the game. But I think this momentous occasion needs to be commemorated.

WE DID IT! This post has FINALLY been stickied, and I want to thank all of those who have participated in the campaign to get this thread stickied.

Okay, I am going back into hiding now. Officially once again.

*doing my happy dance*

Yes, we did it! Two great successes (Druin's TR thread extended too) in a few days! Maybe Blizz is finally listening to Monks' requests?
KamelJabber, grats on the sticky.

Wrong forum. You are looking for "Prospective Overlords" not "Monks".

My first post on a sticky'd thread...woot.

The Monk community is a caring, kind and helpful bunch. I am sure that lots of fellow Monks would be willing the help you in your goals.

That being said, as Bane pointed out, read through the gearing guides in the OP of this very same thread. :)
I plan on updating Post #3 with a super nice thread regarding best practices when requesting help with gearing.

Feel free to create a new thread with specific goals and issues you are having.

The intention of this thread is to provide a quick and easy index of valuable information for new and intermediate monks.

Hey guys, so I have not added anything in a few little bit.
The forum has been flooded with new Monk posts, crafting and other misc posts.
I guess at some point in time the amount of new materials will slow down.

Keeping my eye out for new builds, farming routes, guides, etc..., but like I said, the forum has been flooded recently and I'm super busy at work. Keep me posted if a good thread pops up that should be added.

So, the first addition since sticky status was achieved..is...ME :) I really was not going to add it, but it got a pretty positive response when I posted it.

Under "Misc (internal)" I added KamelJabber's "simple gem spreadsheet". It's a very simple spreadsheet that shows you the Jeweler cost to craft gems, how many flawless squares and how many tomes you need. I added that simple data in the OP so you don't even need to open the spreadsheet.

If you do decide to open the spreadsheet, you can enter the AH price of the gem and it will show you your profit.

NOTE: it was designed for ON-HAND materials. Not what it takes to buy and craft. I was accumulating a number of gems and wanted a quick view of what I could do with my stock.

I don't wanna step on anybody's feet, but what about adding a section for monks who stream? This would be a great place to have that information too, in case new monks come here looking for a more hands on approach and interaction based support.

Grats on the sticky too man, way overdue and 100% deserved :)

Uhh, under videos, it's been there for a couple of months now :)
Druin JUST put up his stream yesterday, give me a second, sheeeesh ;)

Although, how long would a list like that get...I don't want the Index to be overwhelmingly long...If fact this weekend I planned on going through all the links and making sure they still work and are valid...

thanks enot and everyone else.

p.s. I keep getting grats....you guys need to be gratting yourselves! I just copy and paste, copy and paste....

p.s.s. Blizzard did add a new section in their forum for "Gameplay Videos and Streams": http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/8705194/

Ah, yeah I see that. But theres quite a bit of difference between youtube videos (recordings) and streaming video (live, usually including viewer interaction). Might wanna distinguish between the two and maybe even give them each their own (sub)sections?

Thats awesome, I'll hafta check it out. Especially for WD streams, as I don't think I've played with one in literally 6 months.

Also just found this VERY simple, yet equally effective damage reduction calculator (for finding your total damage reduction from armor and AR):

What somebody should do is create a thread with all of the monk's streaming or maybe even vods., etc. And then you can add just a link to that thread :)
