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 27, 2012 Crazy thought about OWE / Resistances... I posted this is another thread, but wanted to bring this over here to see what people think about this potentially crazy idea (not sure if anyone has suggested this yet) ... (I"ve put in bold the idea I want folks here to comment on). What are your thoughts about something like this? Would this kind of an idea kill market prices for single / stacked resist gear?Nameless4 Sep 27, 2012

Currently, similar gloves are between 15-25m, but are missing either Vit or Gold find. I'm not looking for item trades or real money. Thanks for looking. * This is not an auction. I'm just looking to skip the AH Cut. I'll consider comparable serious offers.*Gonzoh3 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
Sep 26, 2012 Paragon leveling Was wondering if there is a way to level up as fast as barbs but without spending ridiculous amounts of gold/money to gear up. Right now I can't afford any upgrades so am looking for ideas as to how I can level faster with the stats that I have as only have 2 million gold. 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

Sep 26, 2012 Need Upgrades, about 250M to spend I am not sure where I am going wrong, but I seem to be stuck at around 63K DPS. I am currently looking for an Echoing Fury to complement my WKL. Where am I going wrong though? Compared to other monks I have seen on the forums my damage seems to be low considering I have over 21K dexterity, 33.5% critical hit chance, and over 350% critical damage. Maybe it is my attack speed that is too slow, but when I run the DPS calculator just adding attack speed doesn't get me over the 100K DPS mark. Help...crazyarms21 Sep 26, 2012

Sep 26, 2012 Speed farming act 2 or work through A3? Question I have and haven't decided for myself yet is, would I be better off doing a 33% MS / Tempest Rush runs through act 2 Vault of the Ancients - Belial or doing act 3 where I still die semi frequently and barely make more gold than I spend in repairs? I have found 1 legendary in each act, both of them sucked (heart slaughter and cindercoat) and other than that, I have sold a total of ~10 rares on AH none of which have even been 1 mil. Which do you guys think I should be doing? Is it possible to get the trifecta items or stuff that will sell for 1mil+ in act 2? Can the set items and legendaries like nats, shenlongs, skorn, inna's etc drop in act 2? I can do act 2 MUCH faster than 3, therefore total elites/trash killed will be much higher.Wamorm12 Sep 26, 2012
Sep 26, 2012 Improvement suggestions? I finally found a skill set that I enjoy for my play style, wading right into the fray, and taking hits while replenishing my health, and doing a decent enough amount of damage. My next step is to improve my gear, but I'm still learning how stats, etc modify dps and real damage. To that end, I am not the most wealthy at the moment, just starting out, so I'm curious, what can I improve, to get the most bang for my buck? I am pretty sure my health, res, and armor are good, which just leaves damage. Thanks for the help!Hackurs3 Sep 26, 2012

Sep 26, 2012 Thanks guys, I'm out Last night a friend and I were playing some Inferno Act III and after my 6th time getting murdered by the same Soul Lasher pack we finally downed them. I found a level 52 shield, with 5 stacks of NV. Then I looked at exactly how much farming I'm going to have to do to gear to the point where I can get through Inferno Diablo, and I bought Torchlight 2. This is no hate towards D3, I got lots of gaming time out of it, but it's just not enjoyable anymore and really hasn't been for a long time. Just wanted to say thanks to all the people on the Monk forum who answered questions, gave good ideas and generally weren't jerks. You made playing the weakest character I've ever used in a videogame about as good as it could be. Best of luck to the rest of you, if you need an Engineer give me a holler :)Grivoc25 Sep 26, 2012

Sep 26, 2012 How to get 75-100k DPS from my current setup Hello everyone, I would like to take my monk to the next level and if any big dps monks or good strategists want to give me some feedback on the most effecient way to accomplish this I would be very appreciative. So I have put a good amount of work into my champ getting to my current stats and I am really enjoying farming and playing the content at my current gear level, however if I can just up my current stats just a bit let's say to 75k RAW dps it should get me to an even more comfortable farm speed. My end goal I would like to get to 100k RAW dps and then I will be firmly happy about not needing to upgrade for a long while, but that will require a bit more changes so I am happy to take this one step at a time. If anyone has some time to check my gear out and give an opinion on my next few gear upgrades (and potential costs to do it) I would be appreciative. What will give me the biggest DPS upgrades (hopefully while keeping my defensive stats similar in resists/health) right now @ 2,415 DEX @ 37.5% CC @ 317% Critical Damage @ 8% Plus attack speed (just gloves) Should I aim for getting more crit damage, more attack speed, more dex? What will give the biggest bang for my buck looking to upgrade?PurpleHaze35 Sep 26, 2012

Sep 26, 2012 Next patch monk build viable in act3-4? The build!YaV!aaaccZ It's basically a sweeping winds build but I cut breath for sss to increase the damage output. The passives are based more so on the upcoming patch and it's nerf to STI. The biggest change from my old build besides the STI swap is I took out break of heaven and put in sss. The skill does a ton of single target damage when I'm fighting an elite or boss and will definitely help with clearing butcher as I'm cutting it fairly close to beating him just before the place lights up. I'm a little worried about the loss of some of my damage reduction however I think the increase in damage I can put out will make up for it. I also like having serenity on a shorter cooldown 20% off that is going to be pretty sick. Same for blinding light. I don't currently have the gear to do acts3-4 on my own so I'm wondering if someone with the gear wouldn't mind commenting on my build and how viable it would be or if they like it?Calamity6 Sep 26, 2012
