A decent pair of any 2 weapons for DW will cost you a whole lot more than what your budget is.
Save your gold, keep farming.
Once you reach a comfortable monetary position, THEN evaluate where you want to go with it.
I personally love my LS Skorn, for everything, TR and Ubers.
But I keep my DW weapons just for when i get bored.
Either way, LS weapons with sockets will cost you AT LEAST 100m a piece if we're aiming at decent dps, 1h or 2h.

Crensh, i heard that i CAN'T do mp10 ubbers with a 2h weap of that level, so i would've to buy a new 2h, and people say its not worth it and i should go for DW.
This incorrect. You got nice LS on it and you can do mp10 just fine with it. I did mp10 ubers with skorn no problem at all.
I run Skorn for everything. TR and Ubers, no problem.
Yeah sure there's a a few adjustments you make for the playstyle, because it's a little slower, but in the end, no reason not to play what you enjoy.

Reading the absurdity in the OP has dropped my IQ by a factor of ten. Pairing said absurdity with the word "theory" put me in a state of idiocy.
I have to go read something intelligent to salvage what's left of my brain.
This, and also our naivety to have bothered coming in here with a title like that.
I spose we really just are our own worst enemies.
@OP: You keep stroking that tinfoil hat boy! Don't forget though, aliens built the pyramids and George Bush has the facts about it in his secret alien-proof bunker under Area52, right next door to the Jewish Banker's vault where they keep all the world's money!

You use skorn for mp10 ubers? I got a new hellfire chevk it out. Its quite decent for the second roll. Show me ur mp10 gear pls.
That is my MP10 gear, as I've said previously.
And yes, skorn for ubers.
It's a different playstyle than the regular "hold down one button and press another once every 3 sec". You need to stay active, stay out of shit on the floor, dodge shit that can be dodged, etc.
It's no laughing matter to try and Skorn ubers with only ~430AR... it's 100x more exciting, technical, and at least 1000x more fun when you get it right.

Edit: wheuis> I'd like to see your gear, can u post a link?
Just got the gloves a few days ago (still trying to find an equal with Allres instead of Fire... grrrr)
For Ubers I change TR to FoT:Thunderclap, SW to Cyclone rune, Mantra to Overawe.
passives I change Guardian Path to Resolve and Chant Resonance to STI.
Sold my Zuni boots to upgrade my Skorn to LS (with patch coming - TR becomes VERY viable for mp5~ farming with LS).

i have noticed that with elites if i stop and use DR i usually 2 hit them with 2 crits above 500k, i also recharge my spirit a bit, is it advised to stop ?
TR = never stop.
I find running with Flash and SSS enough to deal with elites.
SSS and theyre dead. If SSS is down, flash and run through them twice and they're dead. The only packs this doesn't work on, and need to run maybe 3 times, is extra health golgors and tremor beasts.
Your biggest mistake is to look at other TR monks' dps on sheet. Trust me when I say it means nothing.
It is merely a guide, but a straight dps increase does NOT mean it's better. Attackspeed is a dps increase and its extremely poisonous to the build.
CD is a dps increase on sheet, but in reality, it does very little for TR.
Your main stats for TR is +dmg, +dex, +cc, and +%elemental dmg.
The aim is to get your basic damage so high that you oneshot everything, while maintaining spirit to never NEED TO STOP for spirit to catch up.
Also aim to not use OWE, as it takes up a slot, that could much better be used. Movement speed, Guardian's Path, Chant of resonance, cooldown reduction. That's the prime passives, in order of importance.
You can VERY easily get to 350-400 allres without using double resists, and thats all you need.
Furthermore, I do ubers on mp10 in my TR gear, with only skills changing, with the same 430 allres - Just means you have to play more intelligently...

Freebie: don't use Cyclone rune for SW. TR and Cyclone does not work well together.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
Either use Inner Storm if you're short on spirit regen, or Fire Storm for increased dmg.
TR's low proc coefficient is way too low to make any use of cyclone at all.
Just my opinion, but you want to ditch that natalya's ring. Attackspeed is bad for TR, as it drains your spirit faster. Much better to just get a +dmg +cc ring in it's place.
You can also very easily get a skorn with LS that will perform better. Be aware of the part where minimum damage on the weapon is far more important than average dps, and you're fine.
My skorn is 1136 min dmg , 5.9LS - higher than that becomes very expensive...
Biggest upgrade you can do right now that I see, is to get +dmg on your amulet.
Replace the nats ring with +dmg +cc.
And to solve your squishy problem I would highly recommend 12movespd Ice Climbers with high vit and life%. I didn't use a LS skorn for a long time for TR, as low-mp farming just isnt that big of a deal when you have 50k hp and 400 allres. You could try getting some more allres (like bracers, inna pants, gloves)
Don't worry about your paper dps for TR. Unless you aim to use it for Ubers as well after incoming patch - which fyi: is now just as viable as WW for ubers.
Somewhat silly, not really a good fit, but it works...

If neither the item, nor gold has come into your stash for a full 24hours after expiry of the auction, open a ticket.

Just so I'm clear - SW does not really benefit from a snapshot at all anymore - just the dps of each weapon (if you DW) and the current dps at the time? So Blinding Flash will only help SW while the 4 seconds of Blinding Flash is up?
I assumed that I read the notes correctly - so I started experimenting with Exploding Palm for the first time. I see the beenfit, the dmg is nice - however, I have an Echoing Fury and I can't get the benefit of Exploding Palm in action very much, becuase of the fear on EF. So I also added in Cyclone Strike. Which again, helps, but with burning through so much spirit to constant spam Cyclone Strike and Exploding Palm - I very rarely have the spirit to be able to recast Sweeping Winds when it falls off at the next set of mobs.
Correct, the buff from Blinding Flash will only last the few seconds that it is active, after which SW will not retain the buff, same as everything else.
My thoughts on the spirit spending issue?
I am very much inclined to start using TR build, as many bars do with WW, for farming AND ubers - making it my primary and only build...
That and, I've always hated EF for the fear thing. Used it once for 20 minutes and never touched it again.

@Weunis -- I was also banned mistakenly during this wave (I posted a thread here). And I am trying hard to figure out what bug in the warden would have caused this. Your list is helpful, to give me ideas. I don't use any of the software that you mentioned (LootAlert, mumble, etc). I just have a plain 3-button mouse. However, I do have a G15 keyboard. Its not set up with any macros, I am only using it like any generic keyboard. But I guess it must have some process in memory to process key clicks. Do you think this could trigger the warden? I also frequently alt-tab out of the game, and do other things. I play the game with Skype running. There will typically be one or more browsers running, for various reasons. Plus whatever other programs I happen to be working on at the time (say, MS Word, Git Bash, etc.). And of course there is AVG (my anti-virus program) active as well.
Do you think that any of them would trigger the warden, even though they don't interact with D3 in any way? It seems to me that most people would have the same problem if that were the case.
While from a purely technical standpoint, all of the above are 3rd party unauthorized software, as it pertains to D3's ToS, there is some line of reality to be drawn.
Antivirus wouldn't likely be a suspect. Word also highly unlikely, but not impossible.
Internet Browser not a high-value suspect, but browser plugins are a different thing altogether.
Skype is also a very unlikely suspect, barring the possible exceptions of Skype's "extra's" apps.
Something else to consider is Windows "sidebar gadgets".
MSI Overdrive, AMD Overdrive, RivaTuner, etc are middle-ground. They do access memory for some purposes. RivaTuner even has support for plugins, and god only knows what those are capable of...
But on to the REAL issue here - you will NEVER know. No matter how much you beg/plead/grovel, Blizz will NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER tell you what/why exactly triggered the flag and subsequent suspension on your account.
If you were really incorrectly banned, the reinstatement would have happened long ago already. By that I mean, it would take no more than 2-4 tickets to get it sorted. Beyond that, you just need to (as I already said) "get over it" and move on.
You were actioned for something on your PC. It could be a trojan/virus/rootkit/etc from some source that caused some amount of memory interference/scanning or even a hacker using your account to bot without your knowledge.
It could be even more stupid in that you used a friend's PC just to quickly check an auction, or post a bid, or something similar and his PC had actionable processes running.
Bottom line: After 4 tickets you should stop and look in the mirror. Clearly there was no mistake and something does actually exist somewhere in your system that triggered Warden and upon review, warranted a permanent suspension.
To put this in better perspective for you: My own personal experience is as follows
I was actioned for Botting/Automation.
The ban was for 48 hours, as it was my first offense.
Upon ticketing and admitting that I use a Razer Nostromo and made a macro to hold shift+click in one button, I received a response thanking me for my honesty, and that my account would be reinstated early.
A warning in the same message also stated that if I repeat the same offense in future, it would be a permanent ban with no possibility of reinstatement.
Take that as you want.
But NOBODY gets banned for small shit, or false positives right off the bat.
A short suspension is the norm for first minor offenses. The only actions that get instabanned are confirmed botting, cheating, hacking, or otherwise severe interference with the service.
So if you're wondering why people don't/won't/shouldn't ever believe the "I am the most innocent player on the planet and got permabanned for nothing" routine... your answer is in the procedures.
You can even go browse the website to read up in detail the ToS etc - the procedures and penalties are quite clearly outlined and followed to the letter.
