200k dps pure TR Monk possible without IAS?

Hello everyone... I'm closing in on what appears to be the end of gearing my TR monk to max capacity prior to finishing off his leveling. Throughout my search, I've tried to, as religiously as possible, stick to adding DPS via IAS, as it inhibits spirit regen.

I do have to wonder though... Is it possible to hit 200k dps on a pure TR Monk in my spec without adding any IAS pieces?

Thanks in advance for any replies. Also, if you have any suggestions for my monk, please don't hesitate to post!

it's possible. U need nearly perfect rolls on gloves (280+ dex/ 50 cd/10 cc), ammy (high average dmg/ 280+ dex/ 100 cd/10 cc), high dex Inna's items, high cd/ cc/ av dmg Hellfire ring. I think it's not worth it

I have attack speed on my gloves as well as my pants and it still does fine, and I just broke the 200k mark with a crafted amulet.Not the perfect combo but it clears trash with a one shot...

Yes, it is possible. My monk has 210k DPS without IAS. I mean except for innas pants.

The difference is i do it without SoJ though, don't really find it necessary. I run an 11.46 spirit regen with circular breathing, with firestorm.

My TR monk is MP10 capable (that doesn't mean that she's efficient), i still stick to dual wield for higher MPs.

I hit 192k buffed with scoundrel and SoJ with a doom hammer.

With a skorn I'd bet I would be over 200k, but i might have to swap followers to Templar to maintain spirit if I had 1.0aps base.

It's hard, but I bet I could hit it if I dropped alot of my AR and got double dex inna's pieces, and I'm missing alot of dex on my ammy/bracers/gloves.

just wish my hammer had more crit dmg....

Your spec has a spirit generator...how is that pure TR?

Yep, Im at 206K with only AS on my pants. If I use my WoL SoJ that drop to 186K so not sure if that meets your criteria or not...

I was 230 with my non-LS skorn, but I have changed since then. I think with perfect rolls you can hit ~325k dps.

There's some very nice monks who have posted on this thread! I'm glad to see that there's a lot of build diversity in the people who have responded. It definitely gives me some ideas of where to go from here.

I should have been more specific with what I meant by "pure TR monk" when I posted. It was clear in my own head, but after looking at the responses, I can see that I should have added more information.

What I had wondered was if it was possible, and if possible, feasible to hit 200k unbuffed DPS on a TR monk while maintaining infinite TR, wearing a Stone of Jordan, keeping resists above 400, and life around 40k with a ruby in the helm, while maintaining an attack speed of no more than 1.08 with a Skorn. That's my overall goal.

Thank you to everyone who has written in the thread. I appreciate the ideas!

Possible: Absolutely. If I switched out my Witching Hour for a 290 DEX Blackthorne's belt I'd be at 197k DPS and would hit all of your other requirements. Then grab more expensive Nat boots with 40 more DEX to get up to 199K. Upgrade either Skorn or get a lucky craft on bracers to bump over 200k.

Cheap: No. ;-)

Good luck!

I don't think it's particularly difficult to achieve those stats, my monk has 204k dps using the templar and 58k hp (little lower resists though since I'm not using owe). Keeping up infinite tr is very simple because you can change your build for what you need (whether it's running circular breathing or inner storm etc.)
