    Hey KJ!
    Thank you very much for having added my little guide to the Monk's library.
    See you in game.

    So after dusting my hardcore monk off recently, was wondering where all the hardcore monk guides are? Any up to date with 1.08? Nothing in this thread applied directly and nothing google linked to a useful compendium!

    I have not run across any however I don't spend any time in the hardcore forums section.
    If you or anyone is aware of a good HC Monk guide post it so I can include it in the OP.

    There are a few threads that argue max life regen/sec vs damage, but haven't really found anything 1.07+

    Good suggestion.

    I do understand that everyone is excited to get a jump on the new RoS/Paragon/Loot changes, however, I personally don't care much for theorcrafting or guides based on vapor ware. By that I mean unconfirmed changes from Blizzard directly.

    I may have a misunderstanding though.

    a.) Either changes have been confirmed directly from blizzard and I missed it...shame on me
    b.) Folks care to see information based on conjecture

    Both ways I can include any said references here. I have not been going all out research into Monkdom lately, however, any suggestions that are valid I will gladly include.

    thanks boneyard!

    wow, the last reply here is Nov last year.

    Just wondering if Nirvana still doable? I tried with Way of the Hundred Fists: Fists of Fury + Breath of Heaven: Infused with Light, but the dot did not regen spirit for me. Am I doing it wrong or what?

    BTW, Op can you please remove or move those undoable builds? Its really hard for people to find a good build within a list of outdated builds

    Thanks for your post here. Classic Nirvana is no longer viable with the changes to ROS, sorry.
    I have not yet purged the "undoable" builds yet.
    The top most section of the sticky has a 2.0 section which I will be updating very soon; in there is a build compendium and two or three other build options.

    TY for your feedback, i'll try to do better to keep this updated.

    —[GUIDE: The Lightning Monk 2.0.3]—

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/12427872835
    This is a thread about the Lightning Monk build currently being used by a lot of the classes players at end-game. It outlines the skills used, passives used and what stat priorities should be considered when looking at items. It also includes a link to a video by the author that shows a "TL:DR" version :)

    Hello KamelJabber,

    as you "requested" in the thread below, here are the information:

    —[CALC] The (elemental) Power of the Monk—
    ○ by Carfesch
    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/12205450732
    This is a thread about and an Excel spreadsheet to calculate DPS and especially eDPS and some more values of your Monk. It shows in a simple way the elemental power of the Monk, when using various skills together with buffs as well as bonuses on skills and elemental damage.

    Thanks folks! I have added both submissions including some additional "External Resources" section.

    I have always held the position that this is not my sticky rather the community's. I'm just lucky enough to have the rights to edit it :)

    In the past I would always read and vet every entry. TBH, I would spend hours searching for content and formatting it for display here.

    Unfortunately, I don't have as much time as I used to to scour the internet for goodies for you folks.

    I also find ROS is particularly abundant with variety. SOOO many folks posting their builds and guides based on gear and elemental skills. I obviously can't include everything. I lean toward entries that provide insight, reasoning, explanations and logic to their posts so that it would help readers gain a deeper understanding into the decisions made by the author.

    Viva La Monk!
