RoS character question

General Discussion
currently a dh can share items with a monk.
so with RoS dropping more character specific drops, does that mean that more dex items will drop, or more dh items will drop - that aren't suited for a monk because maybe they boost skills rather than just good stats for either character.
Probably. I"m sure the answer tho will be... Go see the Mystic!

It's not going to be all Smart Drops

With the new primary stat model, Blizzard will be trying to add some specific affixes like +Skill dmg or -Reduce Cost or Reduce Cooldown to provide choice beyond trifecta and socket. Depending on your build, generic affixed like reduce cool downs or +% to all fire damage would be transferable. Skill-specific ones would not be beneficial.

Anyhow, if the model works as intended, you should get drops soon enough to gear both toons separately, rather than the scarcity of good stuff we're finding now.

I personally will be going for a fire monk (EP-Burning Essence, SW-Firestorm, MoE-Backlash) and a reduce CD DH (Sentry / RoV / Hopefully triple companion legendary) though, so not much chance of sharing gear.
