Hi there again fellow monks,
Just like to know whether you can:
FACETANK whilst standing on triple plague and triple descreator? So three stacks of plague PLUS three stacks of descreator
CAN ANYONE (not monk exclusive) FACETANK whilst being on the centre of the Arcane beam?
Please note: Facetank means you just stand and attack. You don't move, have Serenity or NDE. Blind is fine. And no EF users as EF will not entirely be facetank as you'll be chasing after the mobs eventually.
PS, i left my TR build up. Trying to farm DEs on MP3.
"I farted in your mouth while you were sleeping. You tanked that pretty well"
I laughed so loud when I read this that my wife demanded that I read it out loud to her...she says that I am hanging out with some really strange people...this made me laugh even harder.
omg what did i start!?! Epic troll
great for a monday laugh though :)
Assumed that people would assume MP10 Inferno...
I'll accept that most of your can't.
Be interesting to know whether your tri gen wkl dual LS monk can do it? and with ease? If they had an additional element such as Molten... still ok? Thanks in advance kim
No BS at all; but my WD build gets me to >94% D/R usually (for a time, then just refresh SH/FA)
>1000AR and about 7300 armor :-)
but standing on center is really really stupid actually :P

Yeah, when I spec my monk for balanced. It's at 400k permanent buffed dps with dual lifesteal with 24% wkl/630all res/5100 armor/59k life/2.4aps. Pretty much facetank everything.
I can do double poison + double desecrate on top, on condition there are no other damaging affixes involved (i.e. lightning, RD) and there's plenty of white mobs in the immediate vicinity to leech life from. I can hold on triple stacks long enough to find my way out of this mess, but I don't think that can be tanked, at least not with a Monk, for the obvious reason that if you go insane on mitigation stats, this will hurt very badly your DPS, which puts LS out of the game.
The nexus of an arcane beam is flat out impossible for any class
Everything is tankable with enough gear.
When monster power was first added to the game I went for the tankiest gear I could get on my monk. I would CS packs in and two glass cannon buddies blasted them into nothing. Worked great until like MP9 when my lack of DPS hindered the group more than my spamming CS in the middle of anything helped.
At my peak on that gearing path I could stand on the center of arcane for it's full sweep. It would put a pretty good hurting on my monk, but as long as I kept fighting I wouldn't lose much more than half my HP.
My stats at the time were...
Res 1.1K (OWE)
Armor 4K (no STI)
and no LS...because I had only 20K DPS.
My monk Can't do 1st one or 2nd, but there is only one class I can think of that I know that can do both.
I know 100% sure I can stand on center of arcane sentry. I've done it many times when fighting magda (ubers) and when I fight elite packs.
Plague/descrator combo is much harder than standing on center of sentry. My hp fluctuates a lot, more than sitting on center arcane sentry. I haven't paid attention to seeing how many stacks, but I usually just face tank the 3 affixes mentioned. With the 25% LS rune I imagine it would be much easier to do.
Maybe WD can do it also?
