Higher DPS or Higher Damage Increase %?

Monk
Which is better for monk?

Since we're using skills should we be going for the higher damage increase % rather than DPS off the weapons?

Different builds will want different things, however higher attacks speeds will balance out the higher damage weapons when using actions that can used more when having a faster attack speed. For monks, the only skills that do not benefit from having a higher attack speed is seven sided strike as you will not be able to perform it anymore then if you had a slow attack speed, exploding palm, as you will have to wait to perform it on the same target intill after the dot has expired and sweeping wind as the buff does not increase frequency the faster your attack speed is, although you will stack it faster duel wielding.
