the difference in damage depending on your offhand is solely the speed of your offhand. Faster offhand = more dmg. slower offhand = less dmg because SW scales off your total attack speed.
I did hours and hours of tests on my stream. If you are interested I can give you the video archive.
This movie is just the conclusion of the testing. I didnt do that in response to this thread, but i thought you might be interested in it.

Here is a full explanation of how MH/OH and damage buffs work regarding Sweeping Winds.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary

I started DWing at around 88k unbuffed dps. Before that I used a 18% sacred shield with 170 dex, 10% crit, 50 res and 10% hp. The dmg difference was not very noticable until that point.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
Currently at 100k unbuffed with 43 crit ~500 critdmg 2.4k dex 800 res 50k hp. No loh or ls.
The key to sucessful DWing is to get a slow, high damage Mainhand (preferably with socket and some dex) and a very fast (dagger > sword/fist) offhand with 250+ dex and 180%+ critdmg.
There are a lot of small mechanics at work that make this by far the most effective weapon combination for any mid-high range budget. Important to know is that dps on your offhand doesnt matter too much. Its better to run with a 650 dps dagger that has 190% critdmg and 300 dex than with a 1200 dps + socket mace. On your mainhand its the other way around.

Some of you might have seen me stream last week. Today I will be back with morePosted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
I am currently at 61.5k dps unbuffed, 70k with blazing wrath. Gear and detailed stats are on the streaming page.
During the next few days I will take an in-depth look at underused talents and I will try to make them work in synergistic specs for solo and group play on the search for some hidden gems.
The first day is going to be about Backlash and how to build a viable spec around it.
As usual I will try to keep the stream as informative and action-heavy as possible - no sitting in town and talking or crafting ;).
Feel free to ask questions in the chat and enojy!

Posted in: Monk: The Inner SanctuaryQuote from Bloodymandothe stream is currently offline, but i checked your youtube channel, impressive diablo speedkill there
i noticed that your current stats have ZERO life on hit, as well as no lifesteal, as well as no life per spirit spent, and no transcendence passive, what exactly are you using to sustain other than breath of heaven ?
Stream will be on again in a couple minutes! New patch is amazing for my monk!
Yeah, I don't use any life on hit since with my attack speed (which is very low) it wouldn't help much unless i get a lot of it. I mainly sustain via health globes. It works pretty well since I kill stuff really fast.
My second option; I usually carry a 1200 LoH weapon (1060 dps, also visible in the gear screen). For really hard packs I simply switch the weapon and I got some sustain at the cost of like 15k dps.

whatever you do, get more dps.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
DW is fine, but a shield with dex and crit might be even better.
