Monks Your FLAWS have been revealed!!

Monk
IF the core mechanics of monk is to be a evasive fighter as compare to barbarian.

Shouldn't him/her be able to regenerate his resources without sticking in battle and can't tank.

Shouldn't him/her be able to have some mantra of chanting that instantly restores spirit
But have a long cooldown etc(kinda like preparation).

I am tired of kiting around only to see me waste my spirit down to 0 with tempest rush only to see my death over and over again.

or cast a useless inner sanctuary and watch elites defecate with desecration/arcane/nightmarish/knockback and can't get full effect to use it.

or spam my inefficient heal that i need 2 healing spells and one mantra and still die.

Shouldn't it be attacks cost spirit... so that if no spirit we will be evasive or kite around
until it is generated.
Like hatred generation resource system.
people use tempest rush?!

isn't that the spinny staff movement move?
This.

You need a Daibo with 2+ regen, and a lot of +regen on other itens. And get crit affixes.

Tempest Rush is an awesome skill for positioning. It's like having the W key of WASD movement bound to one of your skill slots, which can be far superior to click-to-move when dealing with huge hitboxes.

Try it on a butcher run or something, or belial. It makes avoiding those choreographed big hits a lot easier.
I die a lot simply because I can't hit anything to regen my spirit - trapped by shielded mobs is my second most reason to die (The first is lag [DAMN YOU BLIZZARD] - when you see everything moving, but nothing happening - you know it's a death).
if you need TR to positions properly and avoid big hit it just means that you aren't very good. There are many better abilities that can replace that slot.
I'm pretty sure OP is just bad and wants to spam skills and can't do it
this build is cute, i should try it

Want to regen lots of spirit?...

Get 1.5-2 regen/sec per weapon and the same for a monk helm.

4+ passive spirit regen is relatively easy to get and lets you pretend you're a DH!

-MoH with Circular Breathing rune = +3spi/sec + health regen, WHILE YOU RUN.

-Who the !@#$ uses Holy Sanctuary? Use bubble with Ascension rune...

-Who the %^-* uses TEMPEST RUSH!?!

-"spam heal" <- haha, this isn't WoW.

You are very, very seriously playing your monk backward.
I'm pretty sure the title can be changed to, URBER, YOUR PLAYING STYLE HAS TO BE CHANGED.
@Zeemus
Agreed, who uses tempest rush?
Never played WoW, didn't have to.

You could "spam-heal" with any healing mantra until they nerfed it.

In fact, could get by with that as your only source of HP. Could that have been enough to get you through ALL of Inferno? No idea, I only got half way through Act 1 before they changed it.

I'm not surprised people are still trying to play like that.

EDIT: Just occurred to me you could still rig some sort of spam-heal with transcendence. Not a plausible, but a possible strategy.

I don't care what MoH did, I care what it does, as should OP.
That's true.
But more importantly, we should care about WoW is played.

Your condescending remarks are top of the class.

Herp derp. Life / Spirit spent is awesome. I am rocking about 150 atm (including Transcendence), and it's the only thing keeping my monk alive. :p

(and I have killed Diablo on Inferno with 5 stacks; just sayin')

I do.
dashing strike is much better. and costs only 10 spirit with the rune.
