How I dropped OWE: Zuni's set build's around

Hi all! I'm Mattia, an Italian player who play on EU servers. I want to excuse myself if you'll find my English not good enought for you ;)

I chosed to make my move and drop away from OWE. I liked the idea to have one more passive free to try up new things (spirit sink abilities, defences passive, beacon, comb strike etc) so I sold out ALL my items as poison monk.

This wasn't easy and required me almost a pause of 1 month from the game, selling things on d2jsp, ah etc. But one month ago I stealed one item that make me wonder about how to rebuild around Zunimassa. Check my boots

Zunimassa's set is cool. I checked what kind of stats the items stand alone gives you and chosed to build around them.

Zunimassa's Marrow (chest)

90+ Dex
250+ Vit
90+ AR

Zunimassa's Trail

8% Poison dmg
180+dex
80+vit
80+ AR

Zunimassa's Pox

75+Dex
32/34% CD
around 80 AR
2 Dps rolls

Free bonus set: 68 AR

The set to me looked awesome, a LOT of free AR since it gives you 2 out of 3 automatic AR roll, ton of int and an amazing set bonus. Boots are pretty sweet since they give you an unique ability on that slot (8% weapon dmg) that sinergies well with WKL and build around AVG DMG gear.

This 3 items also run well with the 2 best items of the set. Inna's helm is by far the best set helm of the game ( I don't understand too much who want Mempo in that slot to be honest) and Inna's pant are pretty unique.

I was easily set in stone with a VERY cheap no-OWE monk that has a good sinergies overall. I builded it "around a budget" since I still have almost 800M to work around for my weapons and such, while the distribution of stats was damned EASY for me.

Also, keeping gloves/amu/ring as DPS only slot helped me a lot to reduce the price of the full thing.

Weapons are still "on the budget" side but I didn't want to hurry and overpurchase things untill I have a better understimation of what my toon need 1st. Also I had an EF with CD (resold for over 400m) but I HATE the fear effect of it at high mps so I'm looking for a new set-up to go with a WKL atm.

First of all, kudos for the inventiveness. An overall good unique char.

But then I must ask: after all this work you had to fill the newly free slot with Beacon of Ytar? So that you can use Serenity a little more often?

The fact that I could not find a passive to use in place of OwE, even if I had it for free, is the reason why I don't feel the pressure to drop it.

You could use 10% movement speed passive

It is a nice build, i am just not sure it can compete with the 7ChC bonus of the 2 set nat.

As you say yourself, innas helm is far superior any other helm for monk. Provided you can get your hands on a good one.

Im guessing he thinks OWE will soon get nerfed. Well I gave up waiting and my monk is fully geared around OWE. If Blizz nerfs OWE too hard, most monks will become useless. I am not spending 7x more for items with AR vs. arcane res.

How is the character any more unique than any other monk? He looks pretty standard to be honest.

cool. but i've been running this set-up for months now (way before even my monk got to p100). Good to see other people figuring it out as well. Might not be the best gear set-up DPS wise, but a relatively cheap and effective way to gear-up if you have non-OWE in mind and gives way better well-roundedness for your monk unless you have billions to spend on perfectly rolled inna/ nats.

How about adding the 2 piece IK? Gloves/Helm.
