monks don't really work like other classes. While there are "breakpoints" for certain skills (WoL, SW:cyclone, etc) there are no mandatory cutoffs and we instead prescribe to the mantra more is better.

What's the breakpoint for Knockback on Fist of Thunder?

I'm attacking too fast for my knockback to proc.

Situation: attack, one punch, two punch, third punch = first knockback lands, one punch, two punch, third punch = second knockback doesn't.
It keeps doing that in an endless cycle

I'm at 2.91 and 2.62 (2.75 avg) APS.

This entirely depends on your build. What skills are you trying maximize?

For example, I use FoT - Quickening. I get extra spirit per crit with this so I stack CC and IAS. I don't really need Crit Dmg as much and make that a second priority even if it increases my DPS more.

If you want to run a Tempest Rush build, lower IAS is generally preferred as crazy as that might sound (but not too low).

In general, most high end monks prefer around 500 AR, 5000 Armor at around 200k DPS.

You can run with OWE or without but definitely cheaper to use OWE when gearing.

Does the enemy have to recover from the first KB to get hit with another?
