Another thing to consider, if your crit chance is high enough, is to try using a rune on your basic attack that gives you extra spirit on crit (I forget the name of it but I use it instead of Thunderclap), and combine this with weapons and/or a helm that grants life per spirit spent.This is actually how I survived early on while I was gearing my monk, but now I still use it because of how much survivability it grants and I'm so used to gaining life that way. If your crit is high enough, you basically gain so much spirit that you can use your mantra every second or two, which will hopefully counteract the reflect damage.
I don't know how much gold you have, but you should be able to find a pretty inexpensive Shenlong's Fist of Legend, and they always have some amount of life per spirit spent.

I am not going to claim that this is fact because I don't have the math to prove it to you, but I've read that Life Leach surpasses LOH at around 100K dps.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
Do keep in mind that the the life leach is reduced by 80% in Inferno... so 2% of damage converted to life is actually .4% of your damage.
Regarding gear questions, not assuming you're looking for legendaries, this is where you'll find some extra dps stats:
Rings: Crit Chance, Crit Damage, and Attack Speed
Neck: Crit Chance, Crit Damage, and Attack Speed
Gloves: Crit Chance, Crit Damage, and Attack Speed
Bracers: Crit Chance
Helm: Crit Chance
Weapons: Crit Damage and Attack Speed
I would've posted the max values for each piece, but since rings and amulets can now roll lvl 63 stats, I don't want to mislead you by providing incorrect info. I do know for sure that all pieces listed above have a max crit chance of 6%, except for gloves and amulet, which have a max crit chance of 10%.

I currently use the Shenlong set and have been happy with it. Make sure the Relentless Assault has Crit Damage or a socket. They're very expensive but it's worth it.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
The ultimate argument is with the Shenlong set, you fire Hadoukens... Choice is made for you.

Posted in: Monk: The Inner SanctuaryQuote from GhostLoadI gave MP3 a shot in Act 4 today and no recipe, but I can't expect it to drop every time at that MP level. Those Inna's chests and legs seem ridiculously expensive though particularly good. I'd really like to get one.
To get an Inna's chest or leg piece with the proper resists you need is going to cost a fortune. I highly suggest the Blackthorne's chest and legs. and it's what I've been using. If you still want the Inna's 2 piece, you should get the belt and helm.

If you're bored OP, or anyone for that matter, try using Cyclone Strike, with the rune that gives it a larger radius.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
That ability alone is the reason that I've stuck to my monk for paragon leveling.. I currently have a lvl 60 Barb and a lvl 60 Demon Hunter. Cyclone Strike is fun, amazing for grabbing annoying mobs, interrupts key elite abilities, and you don't have to use the teleport punch that most everyone uses that can insta kill you.

They will reset typically if your res timer is over 10 seconds except if you have an NPC following you, like Leah. They reset based on a certain amount of time not being in combat.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Edit: Note if an NPC is in your group (Leah, etc) and you don't get back to the pack in time, they will reset as well.

1. Movement speed is excellent and never hurts, but isn't necessaryPosted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
2. I personally disagree with glass cannon builds, but it works for some people. I guess it really depends on your sanity :). If you can take running around and some tiny frog leaping from off your screen to kill you, then glass cannon will work for you. The general concensus is basically "Don't get hit." It's kind of dumb and blunt to put it that way, but with no real damage mitigation other than smoke screen native to our class, it's sad but true.
3. For champion packs it's all about how good at kiting you are, avoiding damage, and using your discipline effectively and efficiently. Preparation is also required in my personal opinion.
4. What appears to have been the most successful for people is stacking Crit damage and using sharpshooter as a passive to burst things down, with a green gem in your weapon. I've read using sharpshooter is a straight DPS increase, but I have yet to see math on it, but I'll trust the community's opinion.
Build wise I use this and has been working pretty well in Act II http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter#aRYdXV!TeY!YcZYZb
Sadly I need a new weapon because frankly my DPS just isn't high enough to deal with some packs, but with those combination of talents I've had no problem kiting things forever.

Ive probably logged more hours than that... Been farming Inferno Act 1 and I've seen 1 Blacksmithing pattern drop and no legendaries. All RNG my friend.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
