Thanks for the feedback guys!!

UPDATES:
I wanted links as part of the index. I created a post in this thread for every section. This way I was able to link directly to that section from the index. I hope/feel/think this will make naviagteion to a specific seciton easier.
It does mean I have to keep the list updated in two different sections, but you guys are worth it!

Guides/Gearing
Added:
  • PaulNg's 'MP10 Guide for Budget 2Handers'
  • Fitz's 'Fitz's MP10 Group Farming Guide'
  • Builds
    Added:
  • Sheldor's '[Guide] Sword/Board Lashing Tail Kick Builds'
  • Bugs/Issues:
  • Removed - all items in this section were removed
  • EDIT: ahhh, been a while since I got first on a page :)
    Shameless self promotion here... but you could consider adding this: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/8796361062

    This isn't exactly a guide, but it might be a useful thread for people who may want to be inspired to do something similar to me. :) If you don't add, I'm cool with that too - I think it may be considered borderline useful. :)

    Removed - all items in this section were removed

    Not sure why, the "issue" still hasn't been addressed/resolved. I guess next PTR I'll have to make a new thread talking about how the quantity of buffs still is insufficient. I'll probably still be bumping my old thread though too since NONE of it has been addressed other than the poorly handled slightly increased # of icons.

    I'm guessing by the fact you removed it, you don't deem these issues important? Even though it effects ALL classes and not just Monks.

    Tbh it's stuff like this from the D3 side of things that has pushed me away from the game. The fact that after a year they still haven't made simple fixes like this, let alone address whether they have any intention to do so.
    No, I removed it because I felt the issue is new now and should get readdressed

    They added more icons but they still need improvement.

    One of the threads was locked and the other is considered "solved" by blizzard.
    You do understand that when there is no PTR up, that you can't post in ANY of the threads in that subforum. The thread isn't actually locked.

    Yes, good point.
    I appreciate that you are following up on the Monk forums and with the game.

    The thought process in removing those items in related to exactly what you are saying.
    That thread can no longer get bumped or receives little or no attention since you can not post it nor is it very visible. Especially when it was posted related to an old PTR.

    Blizzard believes they "solved" the buff icon issue by simply adding more buff icons. The fact that the solution is weak at best it should get re-addressed. It can not from that thread.

    I hope you understand my thought process here, if not, I never claimed to be the all knowing regarding this sticky, I'll gladly add it back.

    Thanks

    Here are the two links.
    No posts since march http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6758726090?page=7#128
    it addressed the number of icons, not the skills and methods that the buff icons should appear.

    This is the thread in PTR. Very specific and thought out...but can't post on it...can't raise attention to it: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7810091076#1

    Actually it can, when the PTR goes back up for the next patch. If you looked through the thread you'd see it was created either 2 or 3 PTR's ago (can't remember which) and I continued to bump it when the forums were available.

    As far as its relevancy, as long as they don't address or change that which it questions, I don't see how it can be anything but. But the thread is yours and you obviously have no interest in any buff icon changes beyond what they've already done (a piss poor job with) so that's that.

    The OP achieved "Highly Rated" status THIS month. I guess this just comes down to you not understanding how the PTR forums work.

    BTW, I noticed you keep putting a "C" where a "K" goes.

    while doing some googleing for something I ran into this site.
    I really liked the visual display of stats per gear/slot.
    Contains proc coeif for each class and other useful information.

    :)

    don't it all, just the parts concerning you :D

    I suggest the gearing guides, the are very beneficial to learning how to gear your Monk.
