    I would find a slower Main Hand weapon (to improve damage of cyclone since it uses Average weapon damage, not dps), and then move the main hand to the offhand. Make up for most of the LoH in the amulet (if you really want the LoH). Pants have some room for upgrade too on Vit side.

    Overall 9/10

    Your gear is pretty much amazing you could just get some crit on your helm as well for that little extra. Almost perfect for act 3.

    I usually go with the damage mantra with the overawe rune and another passive i was just testing something out with this spec :)

    6/10 only because of the magic find passive. I'm not a fan of tanky at all.

    Here's mine: http://us.battle.net...2/hero/15225515

    I'm currently still swapping to a max MF set and farming A3 with ease killing packs in under 10 seconds


    I'm still wondering where you get your extremely high dps from. I just put your gear in a dps calc to see where it's coming from, but it is somehow just showing 51k dps, even just 65k with blazing wrath and the skill-bonus from your helm as a flat 11% dmg increase.

    does anyone know what's wrong there?

    I believe he logged off fully bufffed

    The profile sáved his dps that way : you can try that urself
  • #47
    oh ok, you mean it's possible to fake your dps in the profile with blind? :facepalm:

    EDIT: I just confirmed it myself. another stupid thing by blizz, congrats....

    Hi, im here in search of some advice. Atm i can clear act1 quite easy, in act2 im trying to farm Vault of the assasin and its not going too well, i die quite alot and affixes like arcane ench. or desecrator destroy me in seconds. Ive tryed act3 a bit but its like a brick wall. Im actively searching for a new weapon, so i thought i have the folloving options:
    1.Dual wield= rly high dps weapon + and get loh on the weapon i have atm / lose the crit on my shield
    2.S&B= try to find a weapon with loh,gem slot, lower dps
    3.Upgrade something else first

    My monk: http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Cvicek-1388/hero/4834684
    If anyone has any advice what i should do i would rly appreciate it.

    Ty in advance :)

    You need
    1. higher resists. 3-500 for Act 1, 600 for Act 2, 750+ for Act 3.
    2. higher health. 20k for Act 1, 30k for Act 2, 35k+ for Act 3

    Your DPS is right where it needs to be to farm Act 2. However, you will have difficulty scaling into Act 3 until you improve your critical hit chance/dmg. You gain most of the crit dmg from weapons, and critical hit chance from all the slots available.

    Here's mine.

    Could use some critgear. Only crit chance from your gloves and no crit damage at all. Getting some of that would boost your dps by miles. Other than that it seems fine.

    Crit chance is nice. Dex is a little low. Resistances are a little low. Seems like you are in the processing of improving it all however.


    Mine is definitely also a huge work in progress. Need to upgrade the gems... weapons aren't that great either.
    Here's where I'm at:http://us.battle.net...88/hero/3794791

    I still have problems with some packs in Act3/4. Firechains mobs just ruin me.

    Hi all,

    First post but i would really love some advice. First thing's first:

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/PuddingHead-1779/hero/8131094

    I would love to increase my DPS but at the same time maintain the survivability that I have currently. I find it quite the luxury not having to break battle very often. There are some hard hitting elites (namely Tremors) that give me a difficult time. Well anyways, let me know what you like or dislike and how i can improve. Greatly appreciated!

    Thanks again!

    Pudding,

    I would suggest sacrificing some vitality for more dex/crit chance/crit dmg. You appear to have a very defensive build. Your resist seem good. You should try a dual weapon build and use resolve instead of transendence as a passive.

    So here's my build. what I need to verify is my crit hit chance, I believe I have more than whats listed in profile. I'm able to farm act3, but I require mantra of evasion and deadly reach. I still die alot, so i'm open to suggestions. Preferrably on increasing DPS, Thanks!!!

    synB33R:

    I find that your DPS is perfectly adequate to farm A3. Especially, running with Overawe and Wrath. For survivability, I think your Res and Armor is just slightly shy of what I would feel comfortable. Try shooting for ~650 Res and 6K armor (that's when I found things a bit more bearable in A3). Your HP could use a bit more work (maybe to around 40-50k). My rule of thumb is being able survive 3 heavy hits. Why 3? Because elite packs come in 3's and I want to make sure I can survive if I'm surrounded and they all hit me at 1 time.

    I also want to take this time to weigh in on the whole DPS vs Defense argument. Just because the paper doll DPS is high doesn't necessarily mean that your DPM (damage per minute) is that high. Not to discount DPS or anything (DPS is great and extremely useful) but if you have to break combat every other second, that means your DPS is halved. Defense is a great way to round out that "burst damage output" to more of a consistent "constant damage output". For example I found that at my current defense, while farming A3, I can always survive in a pack jussssst enough for Serenity CD to finish.

    Thoughts anyone?

    A monks damage per minute far exceeds his paper doll damage.

    Nice gear and similar stats to myself :) Can't really notice anything bad about your gear and build except maybe buying a new belt would be a good upgrade ;-). I can farm Act 3 to a degree...but it takes a long time to kill things compared with most monks who like yourself are dual wield, I tried dual wield but just found it too hard to stay alive and kill mobs - probably because of my defensive gear. If you want to increase your dps then getting bracers with crit hit chance on them is a good start, and possibly upgrading your rings to ones with a combination of Attack Speed, Crit Chance, Crit Damage if you have the gold/money.
