What's with the monk neck balls?

I recently completed building a monk. Have to say the necklace or whatever the heck the ring of balls are around his neck drives me nuts. I don't know why but I can't stand the look of them lol.

They look better on Akuma from Street Fighter.

The prayer beads should be spiked or something :) Maybe he'd look like a dog with a choke chain though.

Exactly, Akuma is cool, therefore monks are also cool because the wear the same necklace.

See ?!?! Flawless logic.

The WD twitch suites the 0 dog gear with the bug on his head mix mash of gears. Really makes him look like he's got a pile of mental issues... leading to being mean to his dogs and killing them every second he can.

It's the Inna's chest on a male Monk that's causing all that goofiness. Same piece of gear looks much more decent on a female Monk.

If you really can't stand the Balls (and presuming you're not willing to re-roll a female character), you can consider re-gearing with a different chest piece, or just use the Vanishing Dye and go bare-chested.

To support Laur's point of view, here is the example:

If you make your chest armor invisible with the dye, your prayer beads doesn't show.
