I added all I can think of at the moment.

Any suggestions for content that I should add would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

thanks for putting this up Fitz ... but did I do this right? looks OPPZZZ!!!
I did a rough calculation since I don't know the exact number

MH Avg Dmg = 800
Avg Dmg Bonuses from Gear = 163
Elemental Damage = 0%
Dex = 2272
CHD = 404%
CHC = 47.5%

{[((800) + (163)) * (1+0* [(2272/100)] * [(1+0.475)*4.04] * 8.29 * N/A * N/A = Bell Damage}

963* 1 * 22.72 * 1.475 * 4.04 * 8.29 = 1 080 842.79

130379.10624* 12.02 = 1,567,156.8570048 Wall of Light

2.12 * 0.75 = 1.59

1.59 * 1567157 = 2,491,779.63 dps !!! O_O!!!

I'm surprised none of the builds include cyclone strike. Works great for negating the knockback from dropping bells

Looks good to me. How does this look: 5,264,162?

Now add in buffs like Overawe and Blind.

;)

@BumblyWumbly
Do you have a suggested build? I will be happy to test and add if viable.

You could use CS as well in your build, pull them in and nuke them, or nuke them and pull them back in, either way. The builds are more for just spamming the bells though, ideally another monk would be spamming the CS for you!

Looks good to me.

So let’s say close to 2.5 mil dps * 5 sec of Nirvana = 12.5 mil dmg dump on the elite? O_O!!
that's too high yoh! too OP!! ;)

no wonder SteamBun is creaming my barb in the dps department

You just made think of adding Overawe and Blind to the calculations so people can check that out as well.

Thanks!

I've been messing around with it a bit as with the new density in act 1 reeling them in is just so fun to do.

Am running tempest rush just to mess around on my backup monk and when I switch back to my main it seems so slow between groups.

I run
FOT -quickening (53.5crit chance)
WOL- emp wave
Serenity - Peaceful Repose
Cyclone - implosion
Sweeping wind- Cyclone (might try firestorm as I am digging it on my TR build and wanna see what it does)
MOE- HT for pub or group games (who cant use more armour and very unlikely to conflict with other monks in a group)
MOC-submission in solo games as I hate to spam overawe

passives are
ex soul
OWE
STI

Am S&B and at 172k dps with 5798 armour and 52k life

Seems fun to run

reserved want to check a calc
Monk 1:
MH Avg Dmg = 998
Avg Dmg Bonuses from Gear = 84
Elemental Damage = 6%
Dex = 2512
CHD = 500%
CHC = 49%

{[((850) + (150)) * (1+0.05 * [(1000/100)] * [(1+0.50)*5.00] * 8.29 * N/A * N/A = Bell Damage}

1082 * 1.06 * 25 * 1.5 * 5 * 8.29 = 1,782,743
28673 * 62.175 = 1,782,743

ATS = 2.34 * .3 = .702
2.34 * .75 = 1.755

1,782,743 * 1.3 = 2,317,566 * 1.75 = 4,055,740 * 1.48 = 6,002,496

Did I do all that right?? and what about the Bonus vs Elite from SOJ? Also should I be counting the 6% crit from my SOJ in the Crit calc? My SOJ is 6%/28% AND 6% Crit

OMG ... okay now it's just not fair ... not fair at all =P

FitL boost my dmg up about 50-70%? not too sure but those 3 secs are crazy
Overawe 48% boost ... I think I can keep it up for 9 secs? 5 in nirvana and 4-5 sec after that

ohh and 9% bonus to elites .....= / GG

Are you sure these calculations are correct? Seems really high.. maybe too high to me ....

At first I was going to respond with not a chance in hell, but I like your unique setup you got going on there.

MH Wep Dmg 1447
Dex 3078
CC 51.5% (Includes WoL Bonuses)
CD 391%
IAS 47%
Ele Dmg 14%

1447 * 31.78 * 3.01 * 1.14 = 157,795

Pillar 1190%

157,795 * 11.9 = 1,877,762 Avg Bell Dmg

Now for DPS:

1 * 1.47 = 1.47 * 1,877,762 = 2,760,310 dps for trash

30% Elite Dmg:

2,760,310 * 1.30 = 3,588,403 Elite Avg Bell Dmg

1.47 * 3,588,403 = 5,274,592 Elite Bell DPS

You should use Overawe.

:D

30% Elite Dmg:

1.47 * 4,652,881 = 6,839,734 Elite Bell DPS

You should use Overawe.

:D

Are you sure these calculations are correct?


Unless I am consistently messing something up it should be right.

EDIT: I was consistently messing something up! Fixed.
