Diablo® III

Tal Rasha for Monks?

Has anyone calculated whether the 3% Lightning Skillbonus is worth the 3 setpieces.
I suppose I could do the math myself, but I'd like to know if someone tried already and if the idea isn't preposterous from the first.

I think the gear setup would be as follows:

Tal Armor: http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/item/tal-rashas-relentless-pursuit
+ x Int (doesn't matter)
+ 80+ Vit
+ 9% AS

+ 80+ Dex/Vit (dual affix)
+ 40 OwE Res. / + 60 AR
+ 3 OS

note: Pretty much the best armor possible.


Tal Belt: http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/item/tal-rashas-brace
+ x Int (doesn't matter)
+ 1% CHC
+ 4% Dmg against Elites

+ 80+ Dex
+ 80+ Dex/Vit (dual affix)
+ 40 OwE Res. / + 60 AR

note: Not as much DpS as Inna's or Witching Hour, but more EHP



Tal Amulet: http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/item/tal-rashas-allegiance
+ x Int (doesn't matter)
+ 100+ Vit
+ 6% Elemental Dmg

+ 60%+ CHD
+ 8%+ CHC
+ 7%+ AS

note: A rare amulet could give Dex and AD, but doesn't have the % Elemental Dmg.


note: You'd lose some of Inna's setbonusses.


Worth testing out or can't it beat the regular setup by default?

AFAIK the Tal's armor does not roll vit + dexvit + allres/xxRes... Best you can get is xxx int, 100 dex, 100 vit, 80 ar, 9 ias

Just checked Diabloprogress database and none exists with the stats you give.

To the point, I have played around with Tal's Amu, doesnt beat a rare... 3% skill bonus is less than the Set bonus of Inna's, so I doubt...

I see I did something wrong, but I'm not sure what. Can't Tal armor roll a dual affix or does the base int/vit roll already count as a stat roll. Does the same count for the belt?

You can still get the +130 dex from Inna's, btw. You just lose a couple of trash stats and the reduce in cost for SW.

I've tried with lightning and fire tal rasha. It's worthless. You can get the 6% just solely from inna belt, and the bonus dmg from tal rasha only base on the black damage of your weapon.

You will sacrifice too many things (intel affix on the set) and pay for the price which wizards/wd are paying to get a lesser benefits. Getting a zunimasa boot and inna's belt is much better than striving for the tal rasha set bonus (which is the worst bonus you can have for class specific set).

Even wizards ignore its bonus.

You loose to much dex as compared to what is being used now however I think the a solid 2 pieces would be Tals Chest and Ammy since you can roll good dex and vit, comes with CD and %damage with an addtional 3% from set bonus. Plus if youi look at Diabloprogress the strongest item score for any ammy is Tal Rashas so I am sure someone will use the set bonus for an and game monk eventually. I looked into it myself and will probably test it out soon if I ever venture away from Blackthorne's set.

EDIT: And yes prod is correct I have looked extensively into Tals armor and bet you can do if you want dex with AR is the 100/100 dex/vit + 80 AR. If you go the 250+ Vit and 80AR the number one DPSer in all servers (Wiz) uses that armor thus pushing prices to the billions if you want something like that which unfortunately I do but out of reach for now.

As for the Ammy many people will pass up the IAS and go with Ave Damage or Dex/Vit roll giving you 100/200 best roll for Dex/Vit since it already has a native possible 100 vit roll.
