Sep 27, 2012 Time to fix Dashing Strike! tl;dr- dashing strike is bugged and needs to be patched! The potential for Dashing Strike is easily understood. Get Monk into and out of trouble, quickly. It's the execution that blows. As it plays until this posting (1.0.3), it is powerful when working correctly, but is erratic and error prone, leaving the player defenseless and otherwise in a situation he would never have chosen. For example, instead of dashing across the screen as the player ANTICIPATED, the Monk instead lunges ahead a few yards and performs an attack which leaves them completely defenseless, and unable to move. This happens time and time again, with no obstacles in the way to bar their path, no enemies to interrupt them, the Monk simply roots themselves and attacks. There are times when the target character moves from the position they were at when the Monk attacked it, and now its a crapshoot. Will the Monk pull up early, "rooting" itself, or will it attack the space the enemy was in last? or does the Monk track the target, around monsters and walls, and walls created by monsters, and instead land a devestating blow, with a chance to stun, or perhaps an increased chance to dodge, because the enemy never anticipated such a worthy strike? And what happens when the Dashing Strike does root early? Sometimes I can dash across the screen to avoid an elite's Molten, sometimes I cant. It doesnt seem to be an interrupt thing, but how can I say, I find it very unpredictable, and not working at all like I would expect, and the fact that there is no warning as to why dashing strike doesnt race across the screen, such as "STUNNED" or what have you. It would be nice to see some support on this, as it seems a definite flaw in the code work, and certainly cannot be "working as intended". Fixes- -Correct the Tracking so you can weave across the screen with a reasonable chance to be uninterrupted, and LET IT FOLLOW AN ENEMY! The Monk can Call down the Power of the Gods, certainly they can turn their hips while running. -Never "root" early. Its the most frustrating thing about this skill. If my attack is interrupted for some reason, dont make me attack nothing. -Never hit an enemy you didnt target. Sometimes in packs it seems as if you dont zip around to the other side of them, you just attack the first thing you brush up against. -If it is interrupted, some kind of indication. Good luck. Bump if you like.Ugly11 Sep 27, 2012
Sep 27, 2012 Burning axe and fire storm? Has anyone with nice dps tried burning axe of Sankis and SW fire storm? I found a non socket one that had ok dps so I tried it just bec it looks cool.

Sep 27, 2012 Sweeping Winds, why? Why does sweeping winds take a snapshot of "active" weapon DPS, instead of either your combined DPS or mainhand DPS?

Sep 27, 2012 Stun-Locking ... it's BACK! 1.05 FTW Started gearing for PvP then a day or two later the CC (Crowd Control) buff was announced in 1.05 so I finished out a Crowd Control gear-set - see my profile (I also have a 15% Azurewrath in my stash). Guess what folks... the buff is all that! I finally got into 1.05 and Elites in Monster Power lvl 10 NEVER HIT ME. Now, of course there is some damage (most elemental) that gets through but the vast majority is Frozen/Feared/Blinded/Stunned/Slowed, etc. Realize this is best utilized if you are in the Monster Power Level you should be in. If you are under 60k damage and trying to do MP10 (like I did with my gear), the Monsters will still be "stun-locked" but you have to do the damage to take them down so many AoE/Elemental Affixes will still have to be mitigated. This is still HUGE. Echoing Furies (15%+)/Azurewraths (14-15%) are insane right now and CC (crowd control) on gear is a top-3 stat. Stacking Attack Speed is also much more important if you are also stacking CC. Will try to get around to recording some of my sessions being that I'm #1 attack-speed Monk on the planet (and probably #1 Crowd-control Monk) and share. But for now rejoice - more buffs for melee!blhotz17 Sep 27, 2012

Sep 27, 2012 OK...We are monks look guys...if you use any ability other than a spirit generator to do damage that paper doll number doesnt really mean alot...we have plenty of abilities that can do enough damage to kill all kinds of stuff all kinds of fast...just that no one uses them...the thing most people do is stack IAS crit chance and crit damage use a bunch of defensive skills then just start using a spirit generator...dude...look at your skills...mobs can be killed in great volumes and faster with half the paper doll damage...if you use the skills that are available... it seems like this forum is a bunch of monks being played like barbarians...we are not barbarians...stop making us into them...yes we are a melee class but there are other ways to put out serious damage...IAS is not needed in such volumes for a MONK WHO USES ABILITIES...crit chance and crit damage are good for anyone but come on... Every other thread is hey what should i buy to get my number to be over a smaller number, rate my monk, crap we are monks and our skills would you know? all you use are defensive skills...ya we dont have that many and they are not as good as a barb but you know why? because BARBS ARE BARBS AND MONKS ARE MONKS...before you start listing what should be changed...look at the skill set...see what woks together and try itBellockstaff17 Sep 27, 2012

Sep 27, 2012 Price check for every single item in Diablo 3 I'm fine with the trading posts, but the amount of "price check" threads is borderline farcical. You want to know what you can sell your item for? It's simple. You can get whatever the highest bidder is willing to pay. Someone with no interest in buying it placing an arbitrary estimate of value on it isn't indicative of what said item could sell for, and is more likely to drive potential buyers away when you end up overpricing it. The more people that are aware your "fat loot" exists, the more people might be interested. The higher the public interest, the higher the potential that people will get into bidding wars and pay more that they otherwise would have. Looking at the AH prices of similar weapons is also going to be useless, since you only see items that have not sold, meaning people found them to be overpriced for what they were. Yes, you can monitor auctions of similar items without BINs to see what the bids increase to, but this requires you watch the end of the auction and means one person interested in that type of item likely isn't anymore, and might have been the only person willing to pay that amount. Start a thread without referencing things you've seen on the AH, or what someone told you it was worth, you will very likely be lowballed into oblivion and trolled hard as well (which is well deserved in most cases). Do not put GODLY in the title unless you're sure it is. List the stats, link an image and say you're taking offers/bids.Cruciform5 Sep 27, 2012

Sep 27, 2012 General opinions of Monk I stopped playing a while ago, sincerely because it got boring and I feel monk just got nerfed along the way. We need the best items in the game just to compare to other classes. After seeing barbarians just trampling over everything and finding 200 million lengendarys, I just lost faith in the game. What are the general opinions of the forum about the monk and where we want the monk to be? I wish we had more dmg or depended less on defensive skills. The upcoming nerf on OwE is just going to dumb us again.cloaker7 Sep 27, 2012

Sep 26, 2012 Is It better to have high DPS weapon or Stats I'm Debating, My primary weapon is good, but I'm debating between 2 different weapons as an offhand. I have a 820 DPS fist with 99% crit and Open socket, And a 1100 Dps sword with 100 dex, open socket, and life steal. Now they both put my character sheet at 62k unbuffed, so there's no difference there. But would I actually be doing more DPS with the higher DPS sword as an offhand rather than the lower DPS one with huge amounts of crit? I know the sword gives me more survivability because of the life steal, but i'm only worried about DPS. How can I tell which is better when they both show the same DPS on my Character? Thanks!Elaidya6 Sep 26, 2012

Sep 26, 2012 100k dps monk looking for advice Hi all, I'm looking to upgrade a piece or two but I have no idea what to do next. I was playing monster power level and was spanked around lvl 7. My current stats are 100k dps, 37k hp and 588 AR. I have over 322 MF so I can drop 1 MF piece and still be at the cap. Basically as far as I can tell my options moving forward are: - Witching hour belt - will give me about 6-7k dps depending on which one I got for, if it has some vit and poison res then it will give me some defense gains there as well. - Inna's vast expanse - If I'm buying one of these its 150dex/220+vit and 12% life. I'd lose over 100 res here but gain a hell of a lot of HP. DPS would stay the same. This would give me 4 piece which could be nice for monster power because I'd have plenty of spare spirit to spam transcendence. I'd have 100 LPSS if you include my weapon and the 10 from - Nat's boots and ring combo - would gain 7-9k dps (depending on how much I fork out for a ring) and lose a little vit on the boots unless I went for dex vit but those are exxpeenssiive . Bit hesitant on this one because from the PTR rings drop up to i63 which much better stats and I don't know if I can afford the type of ring/boots combo that would end up being better than what the new rings would give (not that i'd be able to afford one of them instantly anyway). - Vile ward - double res 200dex/80+vit or something like that. pure gain in this slot but for the price it would seem to have the least overall impact on the game play. - As for rings and ammy, I'm using these for MF and holding out till the new pieces start dropping, not going to spend money on these just to buy things that will be outdated really quickly. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.circa6 Sep 26, 2012

Any advice will be appreciated.Striker16 Sep 26, 2012
Sep 26, 2012 How to improve build diversity One of the biggest constraints with monk build diversity is due to spirit management. The #1 spirit usage for most monks is the 75 spirit for sweeping wind. Its basically takes half of our base pool and puts it on permanent reserve since it wears off so fast, its almost impossible to maintain between fights unless the breakables are spaced out nearly perfectly. Using any other skill such as wave of light and exploding palm is just impossible when maintaing sweeping wind unless you have crazy amounts of regen or a full inna's set (which means you give up lots of res or spend tons to buy the ones with res). My proposed solution is to make sweeping wind reduce its level every 6 seconds instead of disappearing completely, so a full level 3 sweeping wind takes 18 seconds to wear off but a level 1 wind still only lasts 6 seconds.Shanrak3 Sep 26, 2012
