Alright guys.. so as you all know there is no defined way to play as of yet. Im sure were getting closer and closer everyday to some theory crafter figuring out the perfect numbers BUT as of now I havnt been able to find that.
I would love for some of you other tanking monks in Hell or even Inferno to look at my build and let me know what I should potentially be doing differently or what you would swap.
I feel like my passives are solid because I feel like I am out of spirit quite often and I have RIDICULOUS AS with two 1H weapons and fists of thunder. But I would much rather be using the Resists Passive and maybe the Self Healing Passive. Also not to sure if I should be using a different mantra like dodge or conviction.. but once again the extra Spirit regen and Life regen is amazing.
As far as gear goes. I stack nothing but Dex and Vitality and have two 1H with 100+ Dex and Vitality on both.
Overall stats are as follows.
I feel like my DPS is a little low but.. im only lvl 51 and am sure to get better gear as I progress through hell.
So far.. with this build I honestly can tank pretty much everything with the exception of some stupid rares with walling or jailing because you just cant get out of their damage if shit turns for the worst.
The only thing I do different is use dashing strike over cyclone strike. However I LOVE cyclone strike, I just feel I need the quick movement skill to avoid desecrate like abilities. I am level 56 and my stats are 23k HP, 3400 armor, 3700 DPS(blessed to have a 340 dps 1h). I currently use a 1h and shield. If I find another great 1h I may go back to dual wield. Using sieze, resolve and transcedance as my passives. I too use healing manta. I WANT to use evasion or conviction. But the constant HoT and ability to pop a better HoT at will is just to valueable for me right now.
