The Big Lebowski. If you haven't seen it shame on you, I highly recommend it. Just a classic.
Am I wrong?

Personally, I think monks are fine, the only issue I have is that our two handed weapons are terrible. When playing my spirit spending build, I would love to be able to use a two handed weap for massive damage and +35% spirit regen passive but the trade off isn't currently worth it versus two fists. Unfortunately when they buffed two handers they forgot to double spirit regen and life per spirit. No point in using a two hander with max 2.5 spirit regen and 60 lpss when I can have those stats on two fists. Two handers should to be able to roll up to 120 lpss and 5 spirit regen.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary

Just thought I'd share my build centered around spirit gen, and spamming WoL for damage, crowd control and life per spirit spent. I believe it can rival the best dps builds out there. Keep in mind I don"t have the best gear. Hoping to switch out my belt and pants for Inna's (dex bonus and +holy damage), and get a Won Khim Lau fist (bonus lightning damage for FoT). Much of my gear can be improved actually.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary

A few points:
- With 250 spirit pool I can spam WoL 7-8 times off a full spirit bar. It crits for about 80-160k on every enemy it hits.
-WIth life steal the AoE on WoL is unreal. If I hit 4 enemies for 80k a piece, thats 320k dmg and +3072 life from life steal. And that's being conservative, considering I've killed like 27 enemies in one blow with it.
- Life per spirit spent= 91.8 (62 from transcendence, 29.8 from spirit stone). So for every use of WoL at 40 spirit that's +3672 life. Want to get more of this on my weapons.
-Spirit regen. With Exalted soul, circular breathing, and SoJ I have 5.03 per second out of combat. With sweeping wind up that's 8.03/sec. Planning to get more of this on weapons and helm. Because you can use WoL to keep sweeping wind up, it is possible to kite and periodically WOL tough packs indefinitely without running out of spirit. I.e: SW lasts 6 secs, so I use WoL every 5 secs while kiting (costing 40 spirit) to keep SW up, but if I have 10 spirit regen/sec, I have gained 50 spirit in that time. Awesome.
-FoT Quickening: With this I can get 21 spirit on a critical hit (6+15). When surrounded this generates 250 spirit in just a few seconds. Key for sticky situations where I need to spam WoL for the healing.
-WoL has knockback
- With enough spirit regen from gear (the max is around 9.5/ sec just from gear!) you could switch from MoH circular breathing to MoC overawe for more damage.
Anyways give it a try if it sounds appealing to you and let me know what you think!

I like your approach to gearing and skills. A bit off the mainstream, very nice!
I like how you use two fist weapons, just as I guess Blizzard intended. I notice you don't have much LoH but quite a bit of Life Steal - how do you find life steal? Also - stacking FR, was that expensive?
Life steal is far superior once you're getting high enough crits, especially when there are lots of enemies around. It works better with AOE skills (like WoL, SW). As for stacking FR I don't think its much more expensive than any other resist.

I actually really liked the last patch, the damage buffs to spirit spenders made them completely viable to work into builds (with high crit chance/ damage). If you are struggling with spirit generation, FoT quickening, exalted soul, MoH circular breathing, and SW inner storm will help a lot.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
My build is here: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Lewbagger-1434/hero/1482989
I can spam WoL 8 times with full spirit, and with quickening and inner storm I can kite enemies and blast them back. When my spirit runs too low i simply pop serenity and beat on something, with a few crits and the regen you can get a full bar in about 5 seconds.

Nice dps sir. You might want to consider using combination strike instead of fleet footed or seize the initiative though. Also maybe add some vita and/ or life steal. 9.3333/10
Heres my build: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Lewbagger-1434/hero/1482989
I've opted to go for more spirit generation/ spending with the recent buffs and its working extremely well. (AOE/ Life steal with WoL is immense).
