Most, if not all, of these ideas would breathe some fresh life into Diablo 3.
Blizzard needs to hire you as a creative developer.

Posted in: Monk: The Inner SanctuaryQuote from EarlZ088I use the same thing.
Dunno what to tell ya man. if your Crit/DPS is higher than mine then the Dex won't play a siginificant factor at all. You might just need to use your cooldowns a little more effectively. (ie: pop both blinding flash and mantra just as you port into the middle of a huge pack of mobs. Then you'll just burn them all down.) This build is not a tank and spank build. You have to be mobile, and efficiently use cooldown management to get the best results. That's the only idea that springs to mind.

I'd really suggest playing with mantra of conviction and overawe. I got through Act IV the first time with similar stats as you but about 450 resists and about 2k more dps than you although my health pool was about 10k more than yours. Lots of spike damage in Act IV so low HP makes it that much more difficult. You have to really watch your positioning and be very mobile against the different packs in Act IV. Can't just stand there and tank stuff even with 2200 LOH and a shitton of resists/armor.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary

Manta of Conviction with Overawe + Blinding Flash w/ Faith in the light.. Make sure you also stack those two when Blinding Flash Cd is up, and refresh the mantra every other chance you get..

I've been testing some gear that jumped my DPS up about 12k putting my total damage at about 51k with the breath of heaven buff, but put my LOH down to 1k.. I am killing stuff faster, but my survivability is way worse so I find myself kiting more as opposed to just outhealing pretty much everything. So all in all I think I'm actually losing time with the higher DPS build. I'm not impressed thus far with the change up (and I have 51k DPS), and I may have to find some sort of compromise between the two.. If I had unlimited resources I'd just have the 2k 2150LOH and 50k DPS, but alas I am not a money machine :D.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
Still tinkering with some things.

Great comments! I actually am in the process of cutting my LOH down to about 1k and boosting up my damage by about 12k.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
I haven't tried a shield with the 10% crit on it.. That may be something to try, but I already have pretty high Crit hit (32%).. I can get quite a bit more Crit hit damage with another weapon instead and really tear through elite packs faster.
I may try something else in place of resolve.. Now we the higher DPS and staff going down I'm not noticing any bad HP spikes unless I stupidly stand in some junk :D...
Definitely a couple things to try!

I am a Monk, and I do Act III and Act IV Inferno farming runs quickly and without a problem. In most cases without dying even once. I will link a video at the end of this post to show you the build and one of the circuits I run.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
I have a specific build I run that is a variation of the cyclone build, but is focused more on damage bursts and mob control than on resists and mitigation. It is called Dual Tornado. With this build I was easily able to clear all of inferno with only 300 to all resists. It does take a little strategy and good movement, but with practice and a little guidance you will easily be raking in loot/gold with even less of an investment into gear than a whirlwind barb.
I am just now getting my guides off the ground, and I am starting with posting the videos of my 3 main farming circuits to show the success of this build. Following very soon will be step by step guides into the specifics of the build, and strategy for mob control and character movement.
My first farming circuit is my Act III Inferno Siegebreaker circuit: After attaining my stacks in random places in the Act (Will be fast if you utilize waypoint correctly) I hit this circuit, and typically clear it in under 20 minutes. The video is following:
