Hopefully my monk fit the bill of the topic title.. XP
Anyway, dun mind me hijack on this thread please. Basically, my monk's present build with Exploding Palm replaced by Inner Sanctuary w rune Forbidden Palace is the setup which crushed mp10 Belial twice last nite solo in single player game(sad to say not tested in public game yet.) without any sweat and most importantly without moving a single inch, standing at centre from fixed position facetanking LOL. Which suit my playstyle best!(consider a personal breakthrough). Much regret to say no videos to support my claims tho.. =(
Had my 'kicks' satisfied anyway.. ;)

Not really sure! looks your AR are bit low, but have good EHP. I think you should use OWE and make your TDR over 90%.

Actually, I dont think i need to advice you further. Your Huge HP pool with that SOJ (additional WOL damage) can ensure you has high sustainability. 2h monk especially TR monk can produce more damage than DW monk so that your abit low AR is not affected your over all balance. I remember you were DW monk with WKL/ dual swords (either) before with OWE free. You knew more than me what was balance monk at that moment. When i peered your skorn damage info, you are beast. The bell damage not only kills elites easily but also increases your sustainability without necessary high AR and also you have huge HP pool background. Well, done, you are more balance than what I thought. Of course, if you have more AR, you are more tanky dealing with any battle situation. If I choose the above listed builds, I will go on no. 1 build. Because your over all TDR is 89.89% which is more closer to the balance thread 90% TDR and the HP:EHP Ratio1:9.89. The 1:10 (equivalent to 90% TDR) is pretty well balance ratio.

Thanks still remember me, MU

YES, the first time playing Monk used sword and WKL, I change weapon and skill after read druin's guide about WOL, so amazing skill.

really agree with you if HP:EHP and TDR are Important than only EHP, this is the best set up than another although EHP : 534,178.46 (just change my rare shoulder) * Edit : TDR = 90,01% and HP:EHP = 1:10

Thanks for sharing info with me and I'm really appreciate it, MU :-)

As others have mentioned, if you are not dying more than once or twice a run and can farm efficiently, I'd say you are balanced. Play however you wish and have fun.
