muse, up your vitality and try the mantra of healing with the resistance buff. I tried the glass cannon approach and found it wasnt for me. From what I have gathered, the monk is supposed to be a support tank.

@ Muse: See if you can get more vit on your chest - you only have 100 or so and max is 300 for that slot so you're missing out on a good chunk there.

@ Fudd Rucker: Pfft to your support tank role! I just grabbed a SoJ and now act 3 elites die to my SSS in one cast.

So how long does it take you to kill the butcher? I'm at 35k with a WD and the butcher goes down in 30seconds or less. At 100k it must be like a trash mob.

I'm trying to correct my vit and resistance problem but running into the issue where I'm broke...

and yeah I'm definitely not aiming for a glass cannon monk I just got a little too focused on upping my dps that I got a bit of target. Though I'm not going for a support tank either really, I want to be able to stand in the middle and or the mob and just deal out damage without dieing.

I hope you're not trying to do any of that tonight.... the lag spikes are ridiculous. ;)

Im at that point now, well up until the later part of act 4 where the tanking part comes in. Holy hell the drops on the Izual are great if you have a 5 stack.

I honestly don't know since I've only been farming Act 3 for the past 3 weeks. Ghom dies within 45 seconds with me and my friend's rend barb (who's doing approx 70k DPS). Azmodan takes a little longer at just over a minute. Seigebreaker actually takes the longest since it reflects damage so I can't just keep the attack going.

had my best farm run last night, started off by finding a decently rolled cindercoat from a goblin, then in the first tower (tower of the damned?).. I find the one weapon that can replace my manticore which I bought 3 weeks ago off the AH.. I ended up rolling a 2 socketed manticore. I lost dex though, but it rolled with higher DPS.

Sold my old manticore, and picked up inna's pants and belt. Doing 103k DPS w/ my MF helm on. Going to swap out the amethyst for an emerald to see how much higher the DPS can go. But currently at 52% Crit Chance, and 350%ish crit damage. Been playing around with gloves and bracers on the AH to get more vit back though.
