No... I dont want to blink

Monk
Inferno - Act 2 completed - Don't purchase anything from AH

I'm tired of Fists of Thunder - Thunderclap blinking me toward my target even while I am holding down shift...
This is dam annoying when fighting Molten / Plague / Desci packs.
Even when it's aimed up so you land in front of the guy you still have a high chance of landing in the painpool.

Don't use Thunderclap you say? I'm trying to maximize my damage / spirit regen while maintaining a tanky build... Guess its back to Keen Eye.

Shift = I don't want to move AT ALL.

Please and thank you
Use deadly reach against those mobs then. I run FoT and Deadly Reach and find them very useful on the same build.
I use FoT Lightning Flash atm. :3

I like it a lot. Shift works perfectly with it too. ^_^

I still get my Knock backs and hella fast AS. Plus I get some Evasion Boost.
Don't get me wrong I love Thunder Clap, I just don't think my gear//build compliments it enough yet.
I use FoT:TC and DR: Foresight. Magical.
This is really the single greatest quality of life change I think they could make, and I fear it is going to be years before they get around to it. Shift prevents moving towards your enemy, so it should prevent "dashing" towards them or teleporting towards them too. The craziest part is that even if you dont have a "target" and just fire off in a direction, if an enemy is in range (and even if they're not in range of the hit, but close enough) you teleport in that direction.

On top of that it seems obvious that Keen Eye is overbudget, and poorly designed. We shouldn't be choosing runes that increase our total effective health by 50% (which keen eye does at 6k armor, scaling up from there). Rune choices should never be that substantial, and there are two other runes that are 20% armor and 20% resists with no more uptime really.

For those reasons I end up playing with what I consider the most deadly-boring playstyle/spirit generator instead of the one I enjoy the most.

It may be a very, very good rune, but you don't see all players using it. There are many, many successful monks in Inferno, including myself, who don't use Keen Eye. I even use DR with a different rune. Therefore it's not overpowered.
