    the stream is currently offline, but i checked your youtube channel, impressive diablo speedkill there :)

    i noticed that your current stats have ZERO life on hit, as well as no lifesteal, as well as no life per spirit spent, and no transcendence passive, what exactly are you using to sustain other than breath of heaven ?

    Stream will be on again in a couple minutes! New patch is amazing for my monk!

    Yeah, I don't use any life on hit since with my attack speed (which is very low) it wouldn't help much unless i get a lot of it. I mainly sustain via health globes. It works pretty well since I kill stuff really fast.

    My second option; I usually carry a 1200 LoH weapon (1060 dps, also visible in the gear screen). For really hard packs I simply switch the weapon and I got some sustain at the cost of like 15k dps.

    i was just going to ask about that too, did the new patch actually increase or decrease your dps ?

    i am guessing a small decrease because the 1.5 aps became less ?

    *Edit*

    i was asking you a question on stream but i guess you don't really check the chat much there , so i'll paste it here, along with the conversation that followed with some people
    • Bloody_mando: i was wondering about something, since you're relying on very high damage output and bursting down mobs, and no real sustain, and mainly stacking crit chance increase and crit damage increase, wouldn't your playstyle essentially benefit even further from wielding the highest damage possible two hander, preferably with a really high +crit damage modifier and a socket??
    • » go in, burst down mobs during cooldowns, run away, repeat , that would work even better with a 2h ?
    • Avengedprophet: one handers offer more +crit dmg than a 2hander can
    • Bloody_mando: you mean as a flat out value per item, because he can get the affix also on a shield ?
    • » but the difference in damage value per weapon, even with a lower crit damage % increase (relatively) would be an overall more dramatic increase in dps (1500 dps 2h etc)
    • Avengedprophet: is he using a shield and a 1hander or two 1 handers?
    • Bobanee: Bloody_mando he have alot of dext + 10% crit on his shield
    • Bloody_mando: yes, what i am saying simply, is an extra 500 damage on main weapon, worse than the lots of dexterity + 10% crit on shield ?
    • Bloody_mando: you cant really say for sure unless you run his stats and gear into a dps spreadsheet and compare
    what are your thoughts about this?

    Newti I asked this on stream but you were farming at the time and I went away soon after but how did you get your in-game mouse colours like how you've got them now? I've seen a few other streamers with similar variants and I want the same as throughout battle I seem to 'lose' my mouse often.

    Also very nice stream of your runs earlier this morning.

    I absolutely love this spec and playstyle. I have trouble with fire chains and molten elites but it's still fun to play. Once I get better gear it will be crazy fun.
