I'd like to point out that Monks and DH are slightly different in the fact that your hatred regens over time where as monks doesnt we need to hit mobs to get spirit. So IAS may not be AS important but it still plays a big part in how much spirit we get back meaning we can spam Mantra's for the increased Dodge or 48% dmg increase.Quote from mattdogg420I assume your playing a monk. since you didn't really clarify, but it seems to me your problem is that you have too much AS in your gear where you should have crit strike damage. I have a DH with only 7% AS, stacking crit strike damage and Dex as much as possible, and my damage is at 90k. Since they nerfed AS it is a stat that you should probably not stack until they get it straight in a future patch. Start replaceing AS with crit strike damage and see what happens.
You need to keep around a 1.8 with s&b easily attainable by getting IAS on neck weapon and 1 ring, stick to a dagger as they have a 1.5 base attack speed. This leaves you helm, shield, gloves, 1 ring and bracers to stack crit and crit dmg.
Im sitting at 22k unbuffed and thats with 1h dagger with 760 dps and a shield
