So I've revised my stance on the charity thing. It's now what I'm leaning most heavily towards, and I like Davlok's idea (at least, I think it was his) of letting the bidder choose the charity. The possibility of the set being flipped was one reason for the switch; the other, is that as far as I know, nobody else has done this, and I would love it for the Monk community to be the first!
(I do remember reading that Athene had donated some game gold to charity a while back, but I'm talking a community putting something together to give to charity.)
So, my goal is to reach 200K DPS on this set (on para 0) before we give it away! What I'll do (and, therefore, what I'm asking) is :
1. Gather donations, both in gold and items. That means I'm also retracting my earlier statement about whether or not a good item you want to donate "fits" into the set. If you're willing to give it away, I'll take it - and sell it myself. Doesn't even have to be monk-specific - although if it isn't, I might ask you to help me out with a ballpark value. I'll keep the OP current as to the remaining gold I have (will go up as I gather, down as I spend, etc.).
2. Get an alt setup, at para 0, so everybody can always have a look at the current state of the set. With that, I'd ask that if someone is available to help me power level the alt this weekend, or in the coming days, they let me know.
