Crafted Monk Gear

  • #1
    Hi Guys

    Sorry if this has already been asked before but which craftable slots do you guys consider it better to create a vitality / stamina piece. This can be both maximum vit/dex combination or in terms price vs worth.

    Thanks,

    Barbarians Shoulders are the only ones that you'd craft Vitality, because Shoulders have the ability to have high Str baseline, where as they don't have the ability to be high Int or Dex so you craft Dex/Int on the classes that use that stat.

    There's no other crafts that you'd want to use the Vitality craft for unless you're playing on Hardcore, then Vitality neck is pretty good.

    Gloves 'can' have high dex/int baseline but to start with, gloves are already incredibly hard to craft good, crafting a Vit pair that happens to have Dex on them would be hilariously near impossible, you have a 'much' higher chance and by much I mean like, 4x as likely to get a 290+ Dex Tri AR pair when using the Dex craft, its not worth crafting Vit Gloves.

    Thanks, I think I will try and craft about 20 vit gloves and a few necks (already started this got an amazing str (200+) / vita (200+) / cc / chd neck). I am currently playing mp7/8 and all is well however I feel my hp is 2 low, i.e 37k. Looking for an item to give me a massive HP boost. Trying to get to 45k hp without loosing health.

    If you are "only" havin 37k hp then your set isnt balanced and/or you are realy low on paragon levels. NEVER ever craft vit gloves or amulets(other then in hc). Those slots are supposed to give you dps. Try always to get your vitality from your middle line of gear + shoulders and bracers. Rings, amulet and gloves are meant to boost your damage. If it happens and you get ehp from those slots its fine but shouldnt be the first place where you want to look for it.

    Thanks, I have upgraded my witching hour to get a bit more HP. My Neck and Gloves have no vitality and so I am feeling the squishy

    Since you are using owe and havin enough resist you can drop the res on inna┬┤s pants and grab on with double vit roll. Other then that i would drop the hf ring and either grab a cheap unity with stacking resist or buy a rare ring with avg. dmg on it to boost your dps a bit. You weapons could use an upgrade too. If you rely on FoT and SW dmg mostly grab a cheap wkl with ls and ccd on it. LOH tends to be worthless on higher mos since it scales pretty bad with gaining more sheet-dps and you cant "outheal" the incoming dmg just with loh. So double lifesteal should be something to consider.

    On a sidenote: IMO guardians path is not worth using other then for a "backlash build" or some sort of tr build. Since you are using some sort of "old cookie cutter" i would switch the passive. Combo strike will give you 8% more dmg pretty much for free which isnt bad at all. If you have troubles surviving might go for near death exp. Switching cyclone strike for explo palm would help in terms of killspeed but be carefull vs. "reflect packs". :)

    I did a quick trial run, things are much smoother with 41k hp vs 37k hp. I tested out Combo Strike, works greatly :) I still prefer using cyclone strike for farming as pulling all the mobs together makes farming quicker. If I do boss runs I think I will give exploding palm a try, something perhaps most people don't use is Guiding Light, when doing boss runs it is really a massive boost.

    I have been searching for a good 1h to replace my 1h with life steal, it has been quite hard since it has 230 dex on it.

    Yeah the +200dex offers alot in terms of dps for your current state of gearing. In terms of builds yu might take a look at those.

    Solo farming: http://eu.battle.net...VYfk!UXT!acacZa

    Apply explo palm, before killing that mob suck in anything around you with cyclone strike, pop blind to keep mobs in place and kill the one with explo palm on it for the massive ae explosion. :) Explo palm offers nearly the same dmg boost as boh but you gain the massive explo dmg. I would defo use near death exp since explo vs. reflect may lead to unintended deaths. :>

    Nice dmg buffs for your partymembers and decent spirit regen for spaming cyclone strike. If need an oh snap button replace bf with serenity but shouldnt be the case if you choose your mp wisely. :)

    Hmmm interesting, I have never really thought about replacing Serenity but Near Death Experience may just be better since its a passive vs active slot.

    Interesting I will try it out.

    I had an attempt at exploding palm and wow! Things just go pop!

    If you wanna use exploding palm, best to use it in conjunction with Cyclone Strike + Implosion and Fists of Thunder + Quickening so you can spam palm, cyclone strike and the dmg mantra. It's just sooo fast. Check my build on signature for an idea of the build.

    Ye, I had cyclone strike initially but then swapped it back for Serenity. Once I am use to the build I will swap it around again.
