Unfortunately due to a technical problem my large response didn't get posted so I'm just going to give it my best.
About what I said that didn't make sense, I'm sorry I miss typed, I've been in the hospital and had some health problems lately so not feeling myself so I apologize. I also want to make it clear what I say or have said is meant to offend anyone. I'm a kind person and don't mean any harm.
Having said that I would like to talk about:
This sounds hypocritical. how can you say it's suitable, but a waste? If it suits the build than it's not a waste
I know some topics are very controversial and opinionated but based on my research, game play, other players and general knowledge of skills and abilities I believe what I have said is true, What I meant about TR is that most monk's I've talked too and the research + trying out different builds is that the DW monk is the most efficient along with some of it's abilities and skills and that TR just isn't really efficient. Maybe you like it and prefer it and that's your choice, knock yourself out (not literally). lol.
If you like TR, go for it!!! Have fun, BUT if your interested in fast very efficient monster kills check out my build.
About the weapon and spirit regeneration:
Weapons are the primary method of dealing damage thus also the main source of life steal and if you are using low dps weapons with bonuses that can be acquired EASILY by just using your main attack with as much IAS then you certainly don't need to sacrifice important stats wether it's your off hand or main hand.
Black damage weapons are BIS (fact not opinion) and having that important average damage plus weapon damage % are key to dps and survival. Survival = DPS. If your not alive or dying too much to DPS than your not playing very well and that's no fun right?
So my point being that if your basic skills (ie: FoT - TC, WoTF etc..) are generating PLENTY of spirit already, why sacrifice important stats you can only get on a weapon like that average damage and weapon %? I know for TR and WoL you need A LOT of spirit but if you properly use your main attack, and use the right weapons, you won't need it. See my point?
Anyhow, I welcome you to try out new things and research other sites and forums like I did because with the build I am using and gear I have, I almost NEVER die and I clear mobs FAST simply because I tried different abilities and skills and found a good method.
I hope this straightens out my point and helps you understand what I was saying. That weapon linked is a vendor item. As I said, I vendor them ALL the time because their LOW DPS and are missing important stats that are actually needed on a weapon.
As Larry always says.. GETRDONE!! :D
