I hate posting another "help me gear" thread but I'm completely clueless when it comes to gearing monks. I'll have it 60 this weekend and want to be prepared. I'll be able to use gear from my dh (us(dot)battle.net/d3/en/profile/dismaljester-1618/hero/909518) and have about 100m to spend. Sorry I can't post full urls yet
My first instinct is to use most of my dh gear and just buy inna's hat and chest with lightning res since that's what my hellfire has, and spend the rest on weapons. Weapons are where I'm completely lost on what to get.
use the same gears, but swap out the followings:
helm -> inna's with high dex, vit, resist
chest -> blackthorn with 200+ vit and some dex
2 weapons, both with 80+ crit, ls and socket, dps doesnt matter as long as its > 800 or 850 etc
If you aim for an end-game setting, get the must have pieces first and average plus for the rest relatively cheap, which are to be upgraded later at occasion. As for weapon, get the best within your budget for a combination of dps, cd, dex, LS and socket. LOH can be from your jewel. 100M can get you close to 100k DPS with decent life sustain elements, LS, LOH, pickup, Life regen, life after kill, etc. Thereafter, upgrade is much more expensive and should be done with care unless you don't care too much about gold.
