I just recently started playing my monk a lot and I'm loving it. Only issue is... I'm dying a lot.

I played MP6 in acts 1 and 3 and was absolutely fine. Now I'm doing the same in act 2 and I can't seem to keep it together, especially in VOTA. Can anybody figure out what the deal is? Build, gear, etc. any advice is welcome. Until I figure this out I'll just have to play MP5 in act 2.
