    I got a big sale before the AH was closed down for the emergency maintenance and now I'm foaming at the mouth for it to come back up so I can get some much needed upgrades.

    So tell me, what should I upgrade for the best boost and value for the budget I got?

    PS: I know my head gem is +EXP, trying to get more paragon then I'll swap to a +Life%

    At least 1 piece of Inna's to get your 2/3 set bonus' After that I would try to get a socketed Echo for your main hand and a weapon w/ the following stats if possible.

    900-1k dps
    35-50% damage
    150+ dex
    700+ life on hit
    Crit Damage (any amount)
    + socket

    after that you should be broke but see a noticeable difference in your investment.

    rings, weapons and pants

    get pants with sockets + 92 dex , innas pants for dex bonus and attack speed, cheapest ones are 12 mill

    get rings with +- and added attackspeed or crit damage on it. = probably 5k each per ring

    get gloves with added attackspeed or crit damage

    get bracers with more dex on it

    overal alot of pieces to upgrade.

    depends what u wanne do with your gear, farm or do mp's...

    for weapons look for echoing fury with lifesteal and crit damage + maybe a won khim low 740 dps socket lifesteal

    otherwise a butcher sickle with alot of dex also good offhand, not expensive 10-14mill and has crit damage on it.

    i would build a high dps low health, low resist monk with preferably good lifesteal weapons, for higher mp's slap on a loh amulet

    there alot of ways to gear now, i wouldnt buy gear to survive high mp's, only thing u need is good weapons and slap on extra loh amulet or ring without dropping too low on dps, then slap on normal gear for speed farming lower mp's

    use a gearchecker to check some upgrades before u go buy stuff to see effect of changes

    Copy that, seems to be a common investment ~nod nod~

    Hey ya deadlybonne, actually I was following your A3ez-mode thread and helped me get on the right path but these are some great suggestions and will follow your advice as it has been fool proof so far.

    Thanks to both of your replies ^_^

    i dont think that's a good idea... you want to max your crit, you'r not suggesting crit on any pieces, although it's your biggest "damage multiplier". more crit = more cyclones. and they do the damage :)

    on topic: the next 2 upgrades should be an inna's piece (pants, you will find no better damage pants, + you get the bonus. best upgrade you can get right now... try to maybe get some defense on them. you will lose a lot of def and win a lot of dps!)
    the next one should be swapping out your echoing fury (for another weapon or a better one). a socket should be in it :) the rest of the stats are determined by your budget.

    Im pretty sure Deadly meant the above things in addition to the stats his gear already have...

    ooooh really? it sounded like "go for critdamage and attackspeed on rings" or something to me :) sorry!

    short version: go for crit ;)

    with the build you're currently using, getting a third piece of Inna's would be completely waste if the intent is to get the spirit regen.

    That said, I'd focus on getting a new offhand with 900+ dps, 600+LoH and preferably critdamage + a socket.
    Other than that, a Unity ring, a Witching Hour belt and a Vile ward shoulder is your best bet for upgrades, most of those you wont be able to replace aswell.
    (And I notice you arent wearing a hellfire ring, get that!)

    I got a few upgrades last night. I know about needing to keep as much crit and crit damage so I was reading between the lines for those upgrades. The set item was so I could get the 130dex from inna's witch I did pick up the pants for a good deal.

    I'll see about getting a better off hand (right now I'm swapping to a 800loh, LS to regain hp when it's dropping like a fly)

    http://us.battle.net...8/hero/10588683 (I'm now over 100k)

    I'll work on getting a hellfire ring and look at the witching hour belt.
