FYI Paragon 40 is far far from the middle I'd say P80 is somewhere in the middle (not based on actual math though).
1. Stack Arcane vit since you already have two pieces.
2. Go for rare chest. I sniped mine for like 30 mils and its All Res+Arcane Res.
3. Change your Witching hour and Inna's pants. In my opinion you shouldn't aim at high dexterity when the budget is low. Instead go for high vit. I would buy Inna's Pants with 130-160 Vit and if lucky some dex. Same goes for the belt: you could buy 160Vit Witching hour probably with some Dex and if super lucky you get some secondary res for stacking like mine.
Edit: your crafted pieces are not worth keeping them on. So forget about Arcane Res and try to find something else if there are no arcane res deals
one more question: should I have my rare chest with 70AR or Inna's chest with +12% Life is a better choice? I sort of lacking HP but have 580AR so maybe I could sacrifice some All Res and get more HP instead?... Or squeezing HP from other pieces is a better idea?
I am currently playing with dashing strike build and found it quite entertaining. In A1 you can constantly "dash" stuff and always keep up 3 stacks of sweeping wind. It also looks really cool: you are moving like Flash and charging your enemies at superspeed.
I was recently watching Twitch's monks and read this forum and found out not many people are actually using this build. The question is why? Apart from being fun this build seems very efficient to me. You can easily avoid bad stuff like frozen traps or poison from those trees in The Fields of Misery + it is fast. (not as fast as Barb's but still you can farm at a decent pace)
I would like you to take a peek at my gear and possibly point out some mistakes (if any)
- I have 161k unbuffed DPS, 40k life and 560AR (stacking Arcane but will switch if craft anything good with different Resistance);
- My goal is MP9.
Somewhat related question: do people craft legendaries nowadays? For some reasons those legendary plans are super expensive on AH. Btw I levelled my barb 1-89 and have never seen any legendary plan drop.
