Jul 16, 2012 Question on %bonus to specific attack Does anyone know how to calculate a damage bonus to a specific attack? I found a helm that has a 5% bonus to Fists of Thunder, it has higher armor, crit, and resist than the one I was using, but no dexterity. The based damage is lower than the helm I was using, but I'm not certain if the 5% damage bonus makes it better. So, just for the sake of argument, if the previous helm left me at 20k damage unbuffed, and the new helm left me at 19250 damage, would I just add the 5% multiplier for my FoT attacks (20212.5), or is there a different calculation needed?Hammy0 Jul 16, 2012

Jul 16, 2012 Sweeping wind dilemma. Looking for the facts So I run in a group with 2 other monks and either a DH or barb. Monks are all high crit over 50k dps. We have all been using sweeping wind w/ tornado crit. I'm just wondering if anybody has done the math if you get more damage output with this vs bladestorm(believe that's the time. On phone in hospital). I'm thinking about testing it out tonight with all 3 of us. I really feel like the extra damage would be more consistent then the tornados.Darklocke7 Jul 16, 2012

Jul 16, 2012 Inferno Monk Guide From a Diablo-Killer Part One: So, I just defeated Diablo on Inferno (actually I one-shot him; seriously, seriously disappointing). Well, except for Diablo, this game is really hard, so I thought I’d put together a guide to help out my fellow monkish travellers along the road. I never kited. Well, maybe twice. I’d move out of goo, but I deliberately designed this spec and gear so that I could stand toe-to-toe with anything in the game. I hate kiting. I’ll start with specs, then talk about gear, then about some gameplay tips. Of course, this is only my own experience. I probably could have done it differently, or even better :). Spec: So, I used a number of specs, actually. Progression is progression, not farming. All that mattered is that something died, so I thought nothing of respeccing on a moment’s notice. I’ll discuss some of the skills that I used and why: Attack: Crippling Wave with Concussion or Deadly Reach with Keen Eye. My go-to skill here was CW, which I used about 90% of the time. DR was for ranged packs that stood in goo. It made them a lot easier to hit. Mantra: Mantra of Evasion with Hard Target or Mantra of Conviction with Overawe. These were my spirit dumps, and I’d try to pop Mantra of Conviction with Blinding Flash for some real burst dps. Evasion I mainly used whenever a mob looked like it was doing something scary. Go-to was MoE. If I really needed more dps (like if I was hitting enrage timers) I’d use MoC. Other Four: Serenity with Ascension: Absolute no-brainer. 4 seconds of invulnerability and I can still dps? Cool. Breath of Heaven with Blazing Wrath: I needed a heal, and it’s basically a permanent 15-second damage boost. Blinding Flash with Faith in the Light: At first, I had Self Reflection, but then it occurred to me that I was choosing between 3 seconds of free dps at 130% versus 4 seconds at 100%, which is pretty equivalent. Plus, the extra damage sped things up against bosses or times when I wasn’t hitting everything with blind (or there was just a lot of goo). Fourth Skill: I have no idea. No, really. I never found a fourth skill I was really happy with. I ran Earth Ally for the most part, because it would distract things, but it would die a lot in Acts III and IV. I ran Seven-Sided Strike with either Sustained Attack or Fulminating Onslaught. I ran Sweeping Wind with Blade Storm, Cyclone, or Inner Storm. I ran Dashing Strike for movement. Take your pick here :) I guess my main suggestion would be Earth Ally for the distraction and HP, but you’ll have to refresh it a lot late in the game. Passives: One With Everything: Kind of a no-brainer, but see my comment on fire gear below. Resolve: This reduces incoming damage by 25%, so it’s kind of a no-brainer. Seize the Initiative: More armor. so more damage reduction. I’m still not sure if this multiplies with Hard Target, but who cares? So, where’s Transcendence? I used it for a while, but ultimately really needed more damage reduction. I missed it, since it was nice to be able to spam my aura as a heal when needed. Still, if I take less damage, I don’t need to heal as much. In the end, I replaced it by adding a lot of life-per-second gear. I guess my default build was:!ZXU!Z.cbcY However, don’t follow it blindly. I did a lot of mixing up depending on the situation. My Ghom build, for instance, was:!ZYU!ZacbYY And that’s just one example. Gear: Okay, on gear, that’s where I went my own way. I don’t know if all the guides were wrong, but I simply didn’t follow them. Here were my important stats in the end (with mantra and BW, since they are permanent): Resistances: 1036 Armor: 7135 Health: 34,725 Life on Hit: 561 Life per Second: 1387 Spirit Regen: 1.87 Dodge: 44.5% Block: 37% DPS: 17895 Weapon Speed: 10% Okay, so let me go through my thinking here and explain why I did what I did. First off, and this will massively increase your survivability to get over the Act III hill, I went for 37% block. This can be done relatively cheaply by getting a Helm of Command with 8% block and the first 29% shield you can find (just search for a shield with 9% block bonus on it and inspect them). You can worry about upgrading the stats later; just get the first one you can afford. They’re all Sacred Shields, so they give you about 4200 block value on average, which is awesome sauce. I can’t recommend this enough. It gave me a huge boost and got me over the last real hump. However, this means that in order to get spirit regen, you need to get it on your weapon, since you can’t get it on your helm. I briefly ran with no spirit regen and absolutely hated it. For really tough fights, I want to go in with full spirit and all my buffs. I guess I could have done some weapon swapping in those cases. I did keep a pure blue dps weapon for when I didn’t need the regen, but for the most part, I just stuck with my fist weapon. Speaking of your weapon, it is not a stat stick. Really, the most important thing about a weapon is its dps. Everything else is completely secondary. I used it for spirit regen, but only because it was my only option. Otherwise, dps, dps, dps. To find a weapon, just decide how much you want to spend, put it in, and search for weapons with spirit regen and dexterity. The dexterity is important. Weapons with dexterity do a lot more dps, give armor and dodge, and are cheaper to boot, since people tend to sell weapons according to their dps, not their stats. Attack speed and +damage% are included in the dps on the weapon in the AH, but not dex, so it’s a hidden bonus.Oceanus24 Jul 16, 2012

Jul 16, 2012 How much should a monk value Vit on weap? While browsing through weapons last night I came across this: for what seemed like a very good deal of 450k. I bought it out and it was a slight damage upgrade over my offhand (~150), but also happened to be an extra 7500 health. Without this weapon I'm a little low on health (28k), but with it I'm sitting at 35k, which seems great! I'm trying to figure out how much it's really worth and having a hard time putting a number on it because of the vitality. There were very few weapons in the AH that had 150+ dex, 190+ vit, 90+ CD and that much DPS.Piffle3 Jul 16, 2012
