Right now I'm using Tempest Rush which only procs LoH 25% of the time and it's getting rather difficult to stay alive even on MP 3. My question is if I had say 5% life steal and dealing around 100k sheet DPS (155k with Tempest Rush), would I be able to progress onto higher MP levels and stay alive? I have about 35k life and 300 resist all.
Of course LoH is that good. Just remove it and I guarantee you will see the difference :)
edit. sorry I only have a low plvl monk, not sure how LoH works with monk specific builds :(
edit2. I meant LS not LoH

LoH scales with AS, the 2 handed tempest rush build has a very slow attack speed. LoH is a pretty horrible stat for slow AS builds. So yes, LS IS that good when you are doing a TR spec. It will vastly increase your survivability.
Awesome, thanks. I'll have to get some spirit regen on items before I can toss my passives/mantra aside. So will taking 5% less damage than before really help me out that much? Also, what kinds of defensive stats should I be shooting for? I won't be using One with Everything which is why I've been trying to stack All Resist...would it be better to try to get more AR or get stuff with higher armor?
After I get life steal I can start to phase out my ring and amulet that have LoH and go for higher DPS, which should give me more life steal in return.
ls and loh work much better with high attack speed. Look at my monk, it;s worse than your but i have 2.9% ls and 1.2k loh with 2.3 attack speed. Fists of thunder + serenity spam -> mp4-5 no problem
More IAS is absolutely crucial for high MP levels for both dps and life steal ticks per second. Eventually, you will find yourself ramming into a brick wall without it.
Tempest rush doesn't scale very well with high IAS. IAS causes TR to tick quicker both damage and cost. As a result the spirit regen required to sustain TR becomes very unrealistic even with fairly low amounts of IAS.
let say your helm give you 40life per one sprit spend (there higher number ones)...and have passive that give you 60life per sprit , it total out 100life per sprit
you spend 11 sprit per sec TR ing, that's 1100 life per sec..
when i pop bell when my life goes 2/3, it gets fill instantly.
i use tr build on mp 1 to 3
i use bell build on mp 4 to 7
i use barb for mp 8 to 10

It IS really that good.
I could really tell for my monks survival.
Players used to bash how little the sources of this LL, those were the times getting past 100k dps is so hard.
So yeah, the more DPS you have, the more potent LL is.
The must have for melee chars/Archon.
