    Including main stat. in weapons just open up more choices. For high-end weapons, every player is just as smart and it is hard enough to find a good weapon nowadays even with a lot of gold.

    Spirit is never a problem with Exalted Soul and high speed attack, and I can drop bell in a row until all elite die.

    Higher AR is much more robust against RD with molten, poison, trapped, walled and immobilized.

    For the same reason, double LS indeed will kill faster with a slight drop in DPS, and you can kill elites with RD in an array of laser.

    +45k HP is good enough however, with sufficient mitigation you won't die at all as long as you're hitting something in all situations.

    There should be no problem with spirit regen for the high attack speed.

    CC is a bit for this level of gear as you're wearing a Mempo.

    DPS is fine even for MP10 with the 3 additional buffs, you could down elites within seconds. However, you're kill yourself against RD for only 2.9LS. More LS will be robust, but you might have to sacrifice a bit DPS to include LS in EF or change for a rare weapon. This can be made up for by upgrading the green gems. We don't know how LS will be dealt with in RoS, but AH will be closed by then anyway.

    As for EHP, AR is slightly on the low, try to add some more to around 600. I can still survived being walled and immobilized for LS from my cyclone, 750+ AR and 1000+ life regen.

    Fix some primary stats and look for the cheapest ones for buyout.

    If you have time, bid on those items, but never overbid higher than the buyout price.

    You'll be more skillful after a couple of trials.

    It has been a nice chat with you on the strategy in getting items.

    To the OP, need a shoulder by crafting or from AH to add HP by something like 10k.

    For DPS, I'll upgrade in the order: amulet, ring, gloves and bracers. Get a 6CC INNA helm, fairly cheap now, and upgrade the gems if possible. As for weapon, CD has to be added, but only deal with them with a higher budget.

    Of course I know what's meant by crafting. I crafted more than 200 braces yesterday without picking any one as I'd like to improve on my 6CC, AR and vit brace, and I'll keep on doing it occasionally. For OWE, I'll aim for a double resist on bracers first, then shoulder, and as for gloves and amulet, I'd rather get them from AH before it is closed. I am not ruling out crafting them, but at a later stage to be realistic.

    What is the logic of paying much higher for the extra one percent when the other stats are not perfect? Of course, I'll take a 6% if the price is within 10%. For endgame items, prices are calculated with entirely different concept, and +1% to perfect, if available, may mean more than 100% difference in price.

    It does not make sense to talk about endgame gear for a low budget, as any one piece for a MP10 monk is worth more than the whole gear set of a MP5 monk. Make the best use of the gold and do the crafting first for OWE passive, and get the other pieces from AH to match the chosen resist,

    Your attributes are decent except AS which you can add to the rings and gloves.

    Swap MH and OH to get more damage for the cyclone.

    Medium to medium-high gear are still cheap as people are waiting for the extension, and high-end gear are still expensive though.

    Your major problem is lack of CC and LS for DPS and life return.

    Change Mempo to a 6CC INNA helm, add CC and AS to glove, and CC and CD to amulet.

    The weapons are nice, but short of LS for high MP fight.

    posted a message on What should i upgrade
    Your attributes are decent, dex=2973, CD=463, CC=46.5, except AR which is 501 as you do not use OWE.

    At his level, upgrade is no longer cheap. However, you can add 1% AS to the INNA pant and find a better amulet at AH.

    You might have to consider to switch to OWE to improve on AR to say 600 and lower the HP to 40k to open more room for possible boost to DPS. By changing to a single resist or double resist on some items, you can easily add avg dmg to Nat ring, more dex on shoulder, gloves, brace (lacking 100 dex), boots, etc. and more CC and AS on ring.

    Currently, your DPS is relatively low as you have dual LS wielding WKL, for which there is a hidden 20% on light damage.

    One way is of course to upgrade the DPS of WKL to close to 900, but then this may not be possible for limited budget.

    Crafting is always recommended and it's the solution for BIS items, but it depends on luck.

    While working on crafting, you might as well get some mid-level gear from AH for an immediate improvement fairly cheap.

    Nat ring and Unity need to be replaced. Some CD for the MH, but that may need some gold.

    You need general upgrade for most items. BOA items most effective for low budget.

    Less dependent on luck, you can get Nat ring + boot at 10M to have considerable DPS upgrade plus some MS which you are lacking.

    Do the BOA items first. Weapon upgrade later until you have 250M+ for something like 1000+, dex, 60+CD, 2.5+ LS plus socket, an axe preferably if you play bell too, spears are just too expensive.

    200 dex and 10% CD are factored in the +4k DPS already, but 200 dex can give you more dodge, 70 AR is a huge boost to EHP.

    Unless you're lacking spirit, I'll trade 9% AS for all these. BTW, 2.51 AS is quite alright for cyclones.

    Hatred can be generated even by shooting in the air, we need something like X hatred in return on crit, on kill or on whatever.
