I don't think monks are overpowered, personally. We're a very versatile class with many build options, and the buffs to spirit spenders in 107 really brought us up to the levels of barbarians for soloing. We have always been, along with SNS wizards the best group play class.
I love though that this is even a topic of conversation considering for how long Monks felt very underpowered relative to the other classes. Great strides have been made in understanding build variations and subsequent gearing, as well as some needed buffs to skills.
Give it a few more months, I bet the conversation will shift again.
Well, the wheels of change are turning towards WDs in the next patch. Under limited conditions, bat power > bells > bears.
As for monks being overpowered, I don't think so. Our love extends to the whole party, so everyone benefits. When party members complain about the bells knock-back, we change to cyclone strike (a.k.a. vortex) which is much weaker in DPS, but very useful for the party.
What with these unidentified people who start topics without revealing their D3 profile?
Trolls, generally. Or people who blame their own inability to play at a high level on another class for some reason.
Every class can be OP with the right gear...
overpowered? monks are a melee class thats very squishy . unlike alot of other classes we cant run around arcane beams like they are not there. we dont really have skills that help our life . we rely pretty much on our gear to save us
Definitely not overpowered. I can stomp through everything with my barb and not have to worry about arcane/molten/plague. But with my monk, I always have to move and reposition. Part of that has to do with my crappy resists on my monk. I do agree, however, with whoever stated that elites die faster with a monk because they truly do. Even running a hota build with my barb i can take elites down faster with my monk. Sweeping wind ftw!
I find I can kill elites faster with my monk.
change to a high dps skorn with no ls, and smash the elite for 2-3m critical with your hammer, u will see who kill faster, just use blood lust, and immortal king belt ls, 6% is more than enough,
and show dh and monk, what is dps with every hit critical, when your wotb is up and running
just see this guy
how he smash ghom
