my monk right now does about 25k dps unbuffed and over 40k buffed which i think is decent for now as my resist is above 900 and my armor is about 6750...right now i kill at a pretty good pace in act3 and can survive pretty well with my monk as im doing 133% crit with 30% crit chance....my problem is i need a lil more loh i can almost tank elite mobs with plauge or fire but i need the extra loh and id be able 2 im around 700loh(300 from weapon gem) but im looking for at least 750-900+ loh weapon that will bring me between 1200-1400 loh i think i can tank easily....i have about 14mil stacked up to spend on a weapon but weapons i look at i find a few diamonds in the rough i missed out on and then other people super over price bc their idiots at 20-40mil...i been looking at lower dps weapons(mines 950 right now) with a higher crit dmg to balance out the dmg bc my weapon doesnt do crit right now....but whats the lowest dps i should look for? is 700-750 too low you think with like 50+ crit? should i not go lower then 800dps with loh and crit 50+ bc thats what im looking for?
You seem to be going S&B, so I guess it all depends on how much LoH you can get with a socket for the money you are willing to spend. I'd say to try and calc how much dps you can drop from your weapon while adding at least 70% crit damage from a gem.
