Going OWE-less. Ballsy. I like it. The fact that you have Phys Resist, too. And tat you have enough that you could always throw OWE on if you needed it. Gear-wise, I'm liking what I see.
I'd question the skill set up, though. I'm seeing a lot of Monks using passives for extra spirit. When you're generating 15 spirit per second from punching things, is an extra 3 spirit per second really worth two passives?
I just feel like there's more you can do. More defensive, you can obviously replace one of them with any of 3 or 4 different passives. If you wanted to go offensive and kill things faster, I'd replace Blinding Flash with DR:Foresight and one of your passives with Combo Strike, and in stead of a sometimes 30% bonus you have an always 34% bonus, and your bells hit much harder. You're also probably almost at the 65K buffed DPS you mention without having to spend any gold.
Even Fleet-Footed lets you kill things faster while providing you more defensive mobility.
01/28/2013 10:29 AMJust wanted to post up a thread to gain some insight as to whether you can build a 100k+ dps monk with crit % and crit dmg% without gimping your ehp too much. Thx in advance to whoever posts up :)

If you've got the money and time, anything is possible. I mean in SC, there are Monks with over 1.5M EHP, with over 170K DPS along with both LoH and LS. And yes, that's without OWE
I wouldn't focus too much on that DPS number on your screen ,though. The real question you need should be asking is "How effective am I?". First you define what you mean by effective, the you work towards that. For example, if you want to be spamming bells like crazy, then you probably want more CC so you can use an attack that generates spirit faster such as FoT:Quickening. Attack speed also doesn't directly affect the damage your bells do the way that CC and CD do.
If you're really concerned about maximizing your effective DPS, then just go with a Sweeping Winds build. No one has really found anything too much more effective than that, even at minimal +CC%. If you want to maximize you XP/hr, there are TR farming builds that do that, or the standard SW build if you don't like buying that much specialized gear.
If you have some other goal, for example, you really care about maximizing that DPS number on your screen while having no CC, then go for it. You can get to 100K DPS without sacrificing EHP. It will just take much more time, effort, and money than it would without such a restriction. Just make sure that doing it with such a restriction is your actual goal.
