You could make up that vit with an inna's life percentage roll replacing the SW damage, but I don't know the breakdown on damage you'd be losing. You are also gaining attack speed, so that should be taken into account.
Not an option. While I don't have the exact number breakdown for those 10% to SW, I'm coming from a 12% FoT Radiance and let me tell you - once I put the SW one on, stuff started melting so much faster, not to mention the sustain boost (the more damage the Cyclones deal, the more life they leech for you). SW stays on.
dang, I'd find a way to make it work, but like you said, if it means dropping dex to make it up, then its a wash. Better look at some other slots to find a way!
Problem is, I'm more or less at a dead end with my gear. Any upgrade currently on the market costs way more than I can afford, so I'm entirely depending on crafts for future upgrades. I have to work with what I already have and hope that RNG will throw me a bone that fits nicely with the rest of my gear.

Nah, Shatterbone is a joke. That dude is so slow, that even without DS I can be 2 screens away by the time he lifts up his mace. I only let him hit me because I was trying to figure out how much punishment I can take in my current setup. I generally don't have any survivability issues - the only things that can still kill me are the ones that can put me down with one strike. With my mitigation and dual LS, If I can outlive a single blow, I'm pretty much certain to regenerate back to full before the next one strikes home. DS will be a waste of skill slot with my play style, as I tend to stand in the middle of the crowd and don't kite at all, except to take few steps to the side, when the elemental mess beneath my feet starts taking the upper hand.
1700 amulet crafts and no trifecta... no sympathy here... It would be pretty easy to pick up that 60 vit somewhere else.
If it would be any consolation, I'm well past my 1000 amulet count myself and that's the 1st trifecta I ever pulled off. As I tried to outline, I won't be able to outsource those 60 Vit on some other piece of gear, with ease - hence the whining undertone of the thread. Still - don't get me wrong, I'm very happy that I got such a good trifecta, I'm just a bit frustrated that I can't make it work with the rest of my gear.
EDIT: It would appear that my thread title has now become an apostille for the venting out of a wide array of minor disappointments throughout the Monk boards. While I pride myself on any modest trolling contribution I've ever done for our tightly-knit community, here is a gentle reminder for everyone in attendance that petty plagiarism is still very uncool.
