Gearing past 156k dps?

So im having a bit of trouble, I was browsing earlier and seen a claimed 260k dps "unbuffed" monk but didnt seem to come out with the gear, keep in mind im not that into stat priorities ect. Im just having a hard time figuring out how to even reach 200k unbuffed. It seems like the only options I have are a 300m+ weapon for a 15k dps gain along with some amazing 2 set nat boots/ring which will cost me well over 700m for both combined since my rings and boots are pretty nice, my question to you more epic and knowledgeable monks is how can I achieve this? Im not really seeing much room for dps without losing EHP, I got a tals chest for the 3k dps from the 9% AS but my EHP went from 607k to 556k, thats tooooo major in my own personal opinion for a 3k dps boost. Help?

You can compare your gear with mine to see what stats you're missing. I'm sitting at 175k unbuffed at the moment, should be around 200k once I get the Nat's ring with CC and boots for the set passive. A drop in EHP isn't that problematic if the DPS gains are high enough, after all the faster you kill things the less damage you take from them.

Anything upgrade to past 150k for monk will be painful and unreasonably expensive. For me at 150k mark, anything that gives me 10% dps increase is a worthy upgrade. At 200k mark, 8% of overall dps is an upgrade.

I think several of us are in that same boat. Im at 173K unbuffed w/ 605K EHP and its tough to find upgrades.

My struggle is somewhat self imposed though as I am trying to get to 200K without the use of EF (cant stand the fear) or Nats set (rings with natural crit are to cost prohibitive). I am hoping that a new ammy/gloves from 1.07 will help but who knows.

@Lazypanda716: What's the max MP you can do comfortably?

I am asking because vs RD you will oneshot you and in big fights with alot of ranged mobs you will die very quickly. You only got 22k HP and not much res and no LL or LoH

I'm guessing she's in low MP farming gear.
