Last time I enjoyed my monk was when monks weren't forced into zero dps palm bots.
That was d3v.
Edit: I quit during the minor patch when they buffed every class except monks.
So instead of asking for a buff first you ask to nerf the best thing we have going for us atm, without even testing? Sure...make monks completely unplayable right while Blizz flutz around until monk officially becomes a follower?
You're welcome to go through my posting history on when I did ask for buffs, I even posted suggestions, at this point I'm just bitter from the time it has taken for them to even realize the issue.
I guess Blizzard d3 dev team doesn't see the issue that is Exploding Palm, and how you've been forced to balance monks around this ability, just change it already... its been nothing but a hindrance to the Monk.
As long as Blizzard assumes you will use exploding palm in your build, Every other single combination of abilities and play styles will suck in comparison to an EP build..
Remove it... give monks a better spender.
boo hoo I don't like EP. remove it instead of..you know..buffing everything else to an extent where it's doable on T6 so I can play things I like.
Core issue in balance for Monk is EP, Blizzard assumes (as long as there is even a 1% chance you will take it) they will balance every other ability under the assumption you will have EP, and we cannot have every other ability buffed and still have EP in its current state, that would be borderline broken

First of all, no those builds aren't viable T6 (not compared to other classes) anything is viable when you're willing to zdps while you slowly fall asleep.
Secondly, I have more time farmed/experience than you in D3 alone.
Lastly, before you ever assume again someone is lazy maybe you should back up those claims and find out some information on your target.
I've played every Diablo game so far, I've conquered Ubers in Diablo 2 and 3; I've even held top 5 on a ladder as a kick assassin, you probably drooled your way to victory with hammerdins... but that's assuming you even played Diablo before D3ROS.
Post your profile.
Before I do (which I am gladly to do so), what do you think this will accomplish?; Do you believe you will "catch" me being some terrible noob complaining because this game is too hard?
Either way there is no real relevance to my profile, it won't discount my knowledge or experience with the monk, or more importantly the inner understanding of the core issues of monks; Which I won't post here, it has been covered already in hundreds of threads, some more detail than I have posted, it would just be an echo chamber.
