Dmg: how high can shield monk go up to?

just wondering because of http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Crypter-1856/hero/1213081

I think he normally plays at 600K dps with HoTA spam so his true dps is actually higher

*edit: HA! a monk of the same level or even higher! I don't know someone that understand both barb and monk can do the math

Roughly 570K unbuffed is the limit, I think. But realistically no one gets there. There are certainly a bunch of 200K+ unbuffed DPS Monks using shields.

I know my monk sucks but I found a good deal on my shield for 40K. All others were listed 5Mil+

570K unbuffed? that's very impressive!

600K of crypter is buffed, though it's maintaned through out... does that mean that shield monk can beat out shield barb?

570K unbuffed with combination, deadly reach, fist of fury (the ias one), blazing wrath, overawe spam ... is over 100% more dmg? 1 mil? add that to bell and sw/cyclone dmg?

just wondering if i should go shield to drop sti

I'm not sure about 570k unbuffed but i'm pretty sure that at least 300-350kk is possible. For me, swapping to my lacuni's and inna's chest/pants will bump me to maybe 270k. Add perfect rolls to everything and the potential's there...

For the record, I'm not saying anyone has this. I'm just saying that's what you get if you plug in max Dex, CC, CD, etc into all the gear on d3up.

Anyway, Monks have a ton of buffs and a very high effective DPS to DPS ratio. As for getting that number that paper DPS number that shows up in your profile buffed up, Monks can get that number over 1 million with much a much lower unbuffed total. You know Solo's getting their with about 230K unbuffed, right? (His latest progress, in case you missed it: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/8402710386)

ohh I know this .. tried it with cayzer a few months ago and we didn't even stretch anything but he got it to 1.1 mil paper dmg
my own trolling dps is showing 400 on my monk XD lol

no I'm just wondering about sustained buff dmg that you can roll around with
for Crypter, he is the best shield hota barb that I know of, so having sustained buff of 600K dps while HotA is just plain crazy
I can go up to 200K dps maybe but I can only sustain it with mobs around

for monk is a bit different, I think we can hit higher total damage if we can reach 350K dmg as well
this is with shield ofcourse not 2handers or dw

find a shield with 10 crit chance on it, 70+all res, vit, dex and another res attribute and you will see a HUGHE damage increase.

Wow 98% dmg increase from what I can see… it’s much higher than that though with the 15% ias
514,742.58 dmg so 15% ias will bring it up to 600K or higher?

Wow that’s just crazy man … that plus cycolone … wonder what kind of tdps he’s getting … 2 mil? .. 3 mils? More?
