Low single target ? LOL? Compared to what a M6 DH and that's about it ?


The is probably still too much inertia to displace DH from the dps slots in group play... unless they nerf zDPS WD. Then toughness will actually matter, along with group toughness buffs.

I have played the PTR enough to know what I do and do not need.


You are playing the short game. Ancient Hellfire will probably be BiS for the next expansion, and we probably won't have a shinies to compete hopefully!

Bell-swk is a little slow for my tastes but I think the spec as a whole is quite well rounded and opens up a lot of playstyle choice for our class.


But it is true that they changes do transfer the "power" from the clones back to the player. Now we don't really care where the clone explodes. Bye bye 4+ aps though!

Unfortunately, hellfire is about 20x harder to get than shines in 2.1.2 lol.

Right now they are about equal but when shines moves IAS to Socket it becomes extremely easy to get a GG one ... Hellfire on the other hand still required mind-numbing amounts of grinding.

I hope shines remains relevant because I like the unique effects on our helms more than I like 5 passive slots! :)
Since Inna is confirmed to be getting reworked in 2.2 (November 2015?) I pretty much expect every monk to be running Sun3 Inna3 which means Hellfire is competing with helm/chest/belt/pants affix, which probably isn't going to be worth it.

Still going to try to craft one for fun tho! Need me exalted soul 4 lief! ^_^
SEASON 2 Update from 12-22
Barb - 47
Cru - 47
DH - 50
Monk - 50 (+1) <<<< 1st -tied-
WD - 44
Wiz - 46
2p w/ Monk - 47 (GR52)

4p w/ Monk - 52 (GR56)

No motivation!

NoN-SEASON Update from 12-22
Barb - 49
Cru - 46
DH - 48 (+1)
Monk - 47 <<<< 3rd
WD - 46
Wiz - 46
2p w/ Monk - 45 (GR52) +2 Double Monk
3p w/ Monk - 55 (GR5) +8 >>>>> #1 <<<<
4p w/ Monk - 49 (GR56) +1

Dropped to Rank#3 after a DH completed GR48. Interest however is the increase in zDPS monks in group play. Now #1 ranked 3p team includes a zDPS monk ( Tang ).

Also, double monk is doing GR45, so at least one is DPS!
Yeah that night we were really close to beating GR58, then we got the rift guardian that summons reflect damage minions

>.<

It wasn't fun lol, and I swear those minions activate reflect damage nearly instantly sometimes!

reflect damage minions

they do more dmg vs no-pants that's why

Season 2 @ 50 and non-season @ 47
the 3 lvl difference boils down to gundo vs non-gundo?

and the barb non season at 49? what the heck? an outlier?

Considering the #2 barb is 47, and it is sort of an outlier, but still shows the new Raekor's potential with the right RNG.

Probably closer to only 2 GR levels. The #1 season monk @ GR50 is fully geared up in all ancients while the non-season monk @ GR47 is only half geared with a pretty bad ancient Torch (vit, no %dmg). The real answer is... where will the most dedicated rng grinding monks play? (Seasons)
First 2015 Update!!!

SEASON 2 Update from 1-01

NoN-SEASON Update from 1-01

2p w/ Monk - 45 (GR52) Double Monk
3p w/ Monk - 55 (GR55) >>>>> #1 <<<<
4p w/ Monk - 54 (GR56) +5 >> #2 <<

DH completed GR49 in non-seasons to tie with Barbs for 1st. Less of an outlier though. Monk also advanced in the 4p ranks, showing up with a GR54 member completion for #2 rank.
Question for high end season 2 monks...

I saw on ptr that people are wearing the rings RORG and SOJ, and not unity

Is SOJ better than unity for high end GR? Also how do you stay alive that way? Even though u have more dex cuz of ancient items, I hardly stay alive on GR 37 at S1 with unity + desert shroud

Feels impossible to do GR 45 + without unity?

Also what is the CDR for people on S2 for the best monks out there?
@Bluefox

It's either for faster T6 farming, gear hiding, or because they don't have 2x Unity + relic yet.
Final PTR Update - 1-9-2015

4p w/ Monk - 54 (GR56) >> #2 <<

Finished #2 in Non-season ranking because Barb & DH tied. Keep in mind most of the non-season monks were using one of the new legendary defensive gems, so the actual final achievable GR within the next 3 weeks will be 1-2 levels below this. I guess unless INVIS RNGs another one out, but he's on EU.
Gungdo made a big difference (around 3 levels) based on Monk PTR solo leaderboards. I guess most will be forced to play Season 2 when it hits, which makes grinding in NS for the next 3 weeks feel unrewarding.

Except for ancients... unless that's not rewarding for you.

To get Gungdo + New Gem need to do Season, which means all your gears in NS don't matter.
Just gonna say for NS monks, 48 was very possible and 49 would be the equiv of grinding #1 on live. (Crazy dust eater density, a power shrine, and a strategic spot to kill stoneslinger in new patch.)

Gungdo OP though.. too bad no desire to grind brand new gears.
So it looks like Barb is what to roll this season

Why would you say that? I see a KR Barb completing a GR60 solo, but assume that was pre-2.1.2 with a conduit...
Is there a way to have a look at the whole (or at least the 4-man) PTR Leaderboards now?

Don't think Blizz or any website cahces PTR leaderboards anywhere, what did you want to look for in them? I logged the highest GR in S/NS and the highest with a monk in the group a few posts up before PTR closed?
