Looking for gear advice. [200m budget]

    I have 105k dps unbuffed, the armory is showing my dmg with my LoH weapon that I swap to for some reason. I get 1400+ LoH with it.

    How can I get more dps? I know that I could use better gems but I'm looking for some suggestions on replacing gear.

    For 200 mil buy a good pair Inna's legs and a Witching hour, you've got enough resistances unless you're doing MP10. I'm mainly doing MP2 runs and I'm running with ~450 resistances and 0 LS/LoH. Health globes are enough to keep you alive.

    To compensate for the Vitality loss try to get shoulders or boots with vitality, maybe a decent pair of Ice climbers,or upgrade the gear that has 0 or very little vitality if you feel it's necessary.

    Edit: it also appears you're using enchantress as companion? run with the scoundrel for the 3% crit instead.

    I've been pretty happy with running ~600 resists and keeping over 40k life, which makes it pretty easy to push up into the 130-140k dps range.

    Also, given your budget you should be able to get there pretty comfortably.

    Here's my suggestions:
    • First, get either a main hand or off-hand with life steal.
    • Ideally a Won Khim Lao (WKL) with a 23%+ lightning skill dmg, and socket + life steal or crit dmg + life steal.
      LS scales MUCH better than LoH and will serve you well on all but the occasional nasty reflect dmg packs.
      Also the WKL 23%+ lightning skill damage boosts almost all damage on the cookie cutter monk build.
    • Next, get a nice set of Ice Climbers with 180+ dex, 100+ vit + fire resist
    • Inna's Temperance with 100+ vit
    • These last two give you a great HP base to build the rest of your gear off of.
    • Getting high average dmg + esist on jewelry can fill in the resist gaps and help boost your dps to the next level as well
    • Gloves and Bracers both could use help, but you'll need to drop resist to get good dps at your price range.
    If you have not already, check out d3up.com, you can import your character and then add potential upgrades into your profile so you can check out the impact on resist and DPS.

    A decent pair of ice climbers with Vit seems hard to come by. I took most of your advice though and found myself with 125k dps unbuffed with my EF.

    Eeh... get natalyas boots with your resistance or dex+vita AND natalyas ring with crit -----------> extra 7% crit from setbonus and your damage will skyrocket.

    before giving any advice on upgrades, we should first know, what the OP wants to do with his equipment^^

    if you want to farm mp0, drop half your resistances for damage. if you want to farm mp, work on hp / lifesteal ;P

    in gerneral: you want 24% movespeed and if you don't, you just dont know you want it ;) and your ring would be an easy upgrade :)
