    Too soon, grind some monies and wait some weeks for fair prices, otherwise look for bargain rings and amulets , but gonna take some time for all good loot to drop prices, so unless u can make a good deal, you"ll buy more if u have patience

    So incresed my budget to 100m, really need to pump in some upgrades - am at 52k dps on the char page, not sure the two Shelong's are holding me back - cost around 25m for the two so guess replacing them would be a pain. Looked at Skorn's, but not convinced i'd like the playstyle and 40m for a decent one is a pretty big dip in my budget.

    My WD/Wiz come in at 70k/100k dps respectively with the same gear excluding weapons - would really like to get my monk to the same kind of level. Any thoughts regarding upgrade path (even if I don't replace the suggested items right now) would be brilliant.

    I guess Inna's temperance and helm(?) would be good additions. Looked at Temperance up to about 25m and the lack of vitality somewhat scares me. My hp is ~28k and would like it to be more like 32-35k so dropping 160 from my present legs yeah..scares me, lol.

    Thanks!

    Well its simple and u know the answer, more dex, more attackspeed, more crit, more critdamage.

    Just look for items that give u more or special items that gives stuff that rares don't.

    Besides if u check out diabloprogress u can checkout the gear of top monk to see what to aim for on stats...

    And yes if u want people to check your gear then learn to properly link it, since peeps not gonna waste time on that.

    how to get more dmg:
    +100% crit dmg gem in both weapons
    +high average damage on rings
    +andariel's visage helm - gives good dex, crit, and ias
    +moar dex

    I can't paste links due to under 10 posts.

    So bought a ring upgrade also and also tried switching out one of my shenlongs for a 950dps WLK, the quality of life with the extra movement speed from Inna's 2piece is insane, and my dps is at 75k unbuffed.

    No upgrades now are cheap - 50m+ a piece and therefore i'll be saving up!
