Diablo® III

What am I missing?

I have been viewing the profiles of other monks and there is something I don't understand. My monk is level 60/11 and his stats aren't that far off from others that I can see. My dex is up there and I have pretty decent gear for what I can afford anyway. But how do other guys get 150k+ DPS when I can't get to 40k. Can someone tell me where I am going wrong?

more dex, more attack speed, and WAY more Crit Damage AND Crit Chance

It's a combination of using lots of Crit damage, Crit Chance and Attack Speed where your items are lacking in.

the maths gurus will have the exact formula, but I'll put it in less accurate layman language:

(due to weapon DPS and +average damage) x (due to atk spd) x (due to crit chance and crit damage as a pair of factors) x (due to other % modifiers from skills and gear)

you're missing out on lots, the most obvious being crit chance and crit damage.

imagine 1.01 x 1.01 x 1.01, you get close to 1, but 1.4 x 1.4 x 1.4 you get a much larger number.

there was a detailed thread with lots of mathematics regarding DPS, written by Vrkhzy:
enjoy the read.
