Mp10, what a laugh ;-)

My monk is fairly average I guess in these times (5000ish armor, 600ish AR, 190kish DPS, 2.9 ls, 500 loh etc.) and I have hesitated to go for mp 10 - the few times I tried it with the cookie cutter build it was bit of a struggle, the fights with elites were very dependant on which of the affixes the packs got.
Then I switched mantra for Mantra of evasion, backlash rune, and o boy, the game changed completely! I mean, this mantra+backlash+lifesteal make my monk essentially immortal! Feels quite OP to be honest, I can even stand in a desecrator pool as long as I have something close by to hit :-). The dps is still alright without overawe, elite packs go down without me getting any gray hairs.

i may play a barb but i usually use it for my mp10 runs and it does speed it up quite abit

Yes I use SOJ on some of my other toons and know the hidden power there is in this ring. On my monk however I like the unity for both dps+survival+miniSOJ-effect :-)

Backlash loves high density mobs ... in fact it scales with the amount of enemies attacking you. Its awesome for sure.

I'm in a bad place right now with my Monk. 300 million gold to spend on upgrades I've been wanting, principally I wish to get away from OwE, but I refuse to spend any significant amount of gold until the itemization changes.

ANSWER IS: lifesteal on both weapons

At 3+ attacks per second, Deadly Reach gets the job done and I recover a respectable 18% damage modifier from the Foresight Rune. I'm waiting for the itemization patch before I spend any more gold on gears. Once that happens, I'm going to work on freeing myself of OwE and may add the combo strike passive to recover an additional 8% damage from the loss of Overawe.
So far I'm very happy with this build on MP8-10 and really really excited about giving it a go in 1.08

when you use Foresight there's a green aura around you, when you got the buff.

Wow....people are really stuck on this Thunderclap thing.
DR is a VERY good lead attack when you stack enough IAS and utilize fast weapons.
I use DR and WotHf/Blazing Wrath as a combo package. With my 3 attacks per second, I spit nados just fine.
