Hi guys, since I've been following this guide to progress in inferno for my monk I thought I'd throw the question here. Firstly, thank you OP for taking your time to make this guide, I've been doing the crit build thingy with some borrowed gear from my DH and I was having a blast.
Unfortunately, all good thing must come to an end and my own was Act 3 Inferno. Going into it, I made sure my gear was considered 'good enough' in almost all aspect and I'm using the Standard FoT & Cyclone build with only 1 change of transcendence in place of resolve.
I am finding however that some elite pack in Act 3 just end with me dying over and over and over again before I can get them down and I'm hoping someone can point out what I am doing wrong.
I'm basically refering to pack with the arcane / plague / immolate combo, Arcane with any of the other 2 causes me no end of grief and even by itself if affixed on the right elite (Winged Molok and those fat cows) would result in me dying multiple time before I can kill them.
Whenever I try to engage they would always throw down arcane / immolate / plague and combine with their damage output I simply cannot tank through it whilst standing still. If I run away to a clear spot they simply do it all over again within seconds or even worst, starting fireballing me to death. I just don't know how I can economically take these down, what skill should I be using or how I am suppose to engage them. Any help would be greatly appreciate it.
below are my stats for reference, and yes, this is a l2p moment for me, my main is a DH and unlike that character, I rushed my monk to 60 with my borrowed gear, breezing through act 1 and 2 with ease.
Thanks in advance for any advise!
Attack Speed: 1.79
Critical Hit Chance: 35%
Critical Hit Damage: 212%
Block Chance: 21%
Dodge Chance: 46.2% (after mantra buff)
Damage Reduction via Armor 71.39% (after mantra buff)
All Resis: 834
Health Pool: 48,020
Life on Hit: 834
Your gear is enough to devastate the whole game including pony level. You can drop a lot of vitality and get resistance or dps stats instead.
Your stats are all higher than of mine, except I have 27% block. What build are you using?
The same build as recommended by the OP with FoT Thunderclap - I have one variation, which is using trascendence over resolve.
The reason my hp is so high is because the gear isn't tuned for a monk, most of the gear comes from my DH which was stacking All / Phy resis, I was aiming for max dex with those 2 stats on top and the vit was just a bonus.
DPS has now been increased to 25k and HP now down to 45k after some tuning. Finding stuff easier to kill now than before (yay!) Got smashed last night though, by a nightmarish mob of those fat slow monsters (can't remember the name of mob with 2 maces?).
So yea, I know monks with inferior gear farming act 3 and telling me they rarely die to anything, but every session there is at least 1-2 monster that I just wipe to again and again.
