Posted in: Monk: The Inner SanctuaryQuote from ProzaicMuzeI'd just like to point out that even $300 is way too much. That's 1.2bil gold. . . you don't need that much to gear a single character. I happen to have spent a total of $50 on gold, all of which I got from selling items through the RMAH. With that, I have geared 8 L60 chars that can easily clear MP 1-5. The kicker is I'm intentionally using less efficient builds for the sake of my enjoyment and the build guides I've been putting up. Had I focused on the best builds, there's no doubt I could have each class farming MP10 very effectively.
I'm willing to put my money where my mouth is and personally walk you through the process of purchasing items if you haven't already done so because I hate it when people waste money without realizing it. In fact, we'll take your $300 and start with the same $50 I spent. I'm betting that's plenty and that whatever we DON'T use you can donate to me, to your cookie fund, to a random stranger in this thread, to charity or whatever else you want.
I have helped many people purchase gear sets both on my stream (have stopped streaming for the moment) and via 1 on 1 sessions like what I'm offering you. I have an strong understanding of the game and know how to work the AH. I can actually TEACH you how to continue buying good gear rather than just pointing you in the direction and hoping you don't mess up.
If you're interested in my offer, shoot me a private message and we'll discuss what kind of build(s) you want to use and how we'll get you there.
I have not spent any money yet.
I am just playing with my build as is on mp0 right now to learn what to do with skills and all that stuff.
I would like to be able to farm mp1-3 without the risk of dying... but i understand it's as much skill based as it is item based.
I just might take you up on that offer but i'm pretty set on what i want to spend.

Posted in: Monk: The Inner SanctuaryQuote from FurioThe best geared players in the world are not farming MP10 (unless key farming).
For farming paragon levels, the most efficient MP usually MP0. This is because lets imagine a mob has 100HP and you have 100Damage per hit, it will take you 1 hit to kill that mob. Lets imagine that the mob give 100XP. (All these numbers are made up btw for the example). This means if you kill 100 mobs an hour, you gain 10,000 xp.
If you switch to MP1, the mobs have 150% HP. So in this example they have 150HP. You are still doing 100 damage which means it will take you 2 hits to kill the mob. It basically takes you 2x the speed to kill each mob, but you gain LESS than 2x the benifits. Even with 1.0.7 the gain is not 100% per MP level. So with the current numbers of 10% bonus EXP, you will get 110XP per kill. However because it took you 2 hits not 1, you can only kill 50 mobs per hour. This means your xp/h on MP1 is 50x110 = 5,500xp.
As you can see, MP0 was giving you 10kXP/hour but MP1 was giving you 5.5k/h. Which means MP0 is better. Because of the way the scaling works, even with the BEST gear in the game, you will never be able to reach MP10 and farm efficiently for paragon.
(Please note that this is not the only consideration, things like travel time do factor into this and other small factors but this is the basic of the logic)
The best paragon farming spec for monk atm I think is tempest rush. I have build myself a set recently and my GF and although neither of them are perfect, and some items were bought and then I realised they were a mistake, each set cost about 50mill.
If you spent some time you could spend 100mill on a tempest rush set that would be really good for farming MP0 act 3 and 1 shotting all the mobs to be as efficient as possible. 100mill gold costs $25.
You are free to spend your money how you like, but my advice is to spend $25 and build a really nice tempest rush set while you farm paragon levels, and learn more about the game. As you learn more, you will know what stats/items/etc to go for, and will also have found items in game.
Being the top 200 geared for PvP is pointless, as there is no queue, and you can only fight people who agree to fight you. Chances are, this will be people with the same gear as you. or people who have more experience and skill than you. Which means gearing up for pvp when you are new to the game at such a high cost is a waste of money and tbh, time.
Search youtube for "tempest rush monk" and look for the video by "LastHopeForRaoha". He explains the build and also the gear. The only personal thing I changed from his build is using blade storm glyph for sweeping winds, and i cannot remember if he uses seven sided strike but I do for elitest. Blade storm = better for white mobs but not as strong as cyclone for elites. But with SevenSidedStrikes you can 1shot all eliests. Customise the build as you like. With 1.0.7 snapshot changes, chances are this will be a more standard tempest rush build anyway.
But remember, this will cost you no more than 100mill ($25) inc good crit gems and exp gems for helm.
Ok first off you are the shit :)
Thanks for you're input, i just read what you said and i decided to spend about 300$ on gear to farm mp0-3 not 1000$
I doubt ill be interested in doing PvP at all until i have played the game for at least another 400 hours :/
I have been farming mp0 with what i have now just to learn how to use my build a bit more, and so far its working pretty good :), only sad thing is i haven't found a legendary yet haha still waiting on that first drop.

Posted in: Monk: The Inner SanctuaryQuote from MerodiumAre you trolling?
Firstly, select skills for your follower.
Secondly, fix your build.
Your gear should be fine for farming MP0, although not efficiently.
No i'm not trolling. i came here for advice and that's exactly what i got.
And i thank you all for posting in this thread i have read all repys and gone through most of the details in the link's you have provided me.
And i have decided to put about 300$ for a few better upgrades to quickly run through mp1-3
Once again i thank you all :)
If you guys want to play with me some time i'll leave my id here
Oh! and forgot to mention about the end game items he was telling me about. So pretty much what brian wanted me to do i buy a bunch of shit from the auction house so i can be like #205 or something in the world when pvp comes out?
Yes i know it sounds dumb.

Posted in: Monk: The Inner SanctuaryTell me what you think ill need to upgrade. that would help out allot. i think i have about 18 hours played so far :/
Don't know much about monks per se, but from what I see in your profile, you lack crit damage and main stats the most.
You need to balance crit and crit damage on your gear, getting a lot of one and almost none of the other is pointless.
Note that all your items dont need to be legendary or set for your character to be able to be efficent, well rolled legendaries are really, really overpriced atm, you should aim for a good balance of stats.
Check out this guide:
Thank you man. Most help i have got all day :).
Do you know what end game items are?. I hear my friend talking about them all the time but google comes up with nothing for me.

Dont waste your cash all it will do is drain you of any goals in this game and cause you to get bored in no time.
Well here is my build so far
Tell me what you think ill need to upgrade. that would help out allot. i think i have about 18 hours played so far :/

Posted in: Monk: The Inner SanctuaryBut you see what i enjoy about it is running through the strongest enemy's and trying to find legendary items to see how much they can bring in on the auction house.
You can farm in an efficent way (which is mp0-3) by spending 0$ on your gear, just play a few days, get a few drops, sell them and buy mediocre items and you're good to go.
High end items bring NOTHING to the table at the moment, besides growing your epeen, the difference in loot aquired between average and high end characters is trivial, it's all about how much you farm and or rather how easily you get bored.
Thank you man :). like i said i'm new i have a bit of cash and i like to try and kill the best. but i will most likely just be farming and if you say i don't need top gear i trust your word. i am currently running mp2 and dying alot this is why i wanted to upgrade. would say 250$ be good enough to run through without the risk of dying 20+ times?

Sorry man but that's not quite what i'm looking for gear wise. i would probably offer you around 250$ for that build.
1/26/2013 3:15:31 AM
Posted in: Monk: The Inner SanctuaryQuote from ArcaneWeaponJust as a heads up, in a game entirely focused on getting new loot, buying that quality of gear will not only trivialize the game to the point of boredom, it will make playing the game pointless as you'll literally never find anything better than it.
If you really do actually love this game like you claim then you should play it, not pay it.
But you see what i enjoy about it is running through the strongest enemy's and trying to find legendary items to see how much they can bring in on the auction house.

Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary@Zealot ok look bro i have some money saved up and i really enjoy the game... just because i want to put real money into it does not mean i need a psychologist
@CrazyEgoist thanks for the tip on that[center]I do like working for my stuff but the people i play with have way better gear with the same class as me and i can't keep up with them on the lvl they farm on.
