Alright a friend of mine says he will give me 70m so now I'm wondering if I should even stick with a WD or if I should try another class. How do monks fit in the balance of things? Or could I get a decent WW barb up for that price?

My friend said I should go CM wiz so i can stunlock for him so I am going to start a Wizard but I think I will spend about 50 mil on my WD.

You can build a CM wiz for pretty cheap.
This is well worth looking at: http://www.reddit.com/r/Diablo/comme..._830pm_est_5m/

TRAYTON!

WTF is up with your DH dude? You got no life steal / LOH / resists / life?
Pretty amusing last night watching your body get ragdolled off the walls vs siegebreaker. Actually, vs anything that had reflect

monks are really expensive. or they were anyways. 70M can build you an alright monk but maybe mp6. I love my monk but I Must have sunk 200M easily into it by now.

Hmmm...gonna take a stab at that based off my monk.

Helm: Dex/vit/resist Inna's...3m
Amulet: Avg dmg, dex/cc/cd...1-2m (got mine for 500k)
Shoulders: Life % vile ward or rare with 150 dex 100 vit & double resists...5m
Chest: Inna's or rare with dex/vit/sockets/double resist...3m
Belt: Rare with 100 dex, 100 vit, double resist...2m
Pants: Inna's...3m
Boots: Rare with 200 dex, 50+ vit, double resists...2m
Rings: Avg dmg, dex, crit chance...3-4m each
Gloves: Dex, crit chance, crit dmg, resist...5m
Bracers: Lacuni's w/o crit, strongarm bracers with dex, rare with dex/vit/resist(s)...2m
Weapons: Socketed 1000 dps 150 dex echoing fury: 7m. Socketed 850 dps Butchers sickle: 5m

That's around 47m so plenty of room to add in upgrades (witching hour if EHP permits, ice climbers, Nat's 2pc...)

I can solo MP8 pretty easily right now, and if the witching hour I found last night sells I'll be able to buy a LS socketed echoing fury with no loss in DPS which should allow me to solo MP10 (sustain vs reflect dmg packs is what's holding me back)

Shyla | Monk | Diablo 3 DPS & EHP Calculator

Took a 5k DPS hit by replacing my Inna's chest, but gained 100k EHP so worth it for higher MP levels.

Although character sheet only shows around 160k dps, I'm actually doing 222k sustained DPS (with overawe) plus 160k DPS from snapshot sweeping winds so stuff dies pretty quick

70m can get you a really good WD that can do mid MP levels.

there's this monk spreadsheet made by meto (big theorycrafter) to help with working out monk info.. cause of all the buffs and stuff. - http://goo.gl/fMNzd

My monk was probably 80m... 1/2 was the weapons.. but only has 75k sheet DPS, but effective DPS is like 130k..

Well how does my WD look? I think that is pretty good for 50 mil but I wish I had more armor.

While I don't remember exactly the costs.

Chest was about 50, boots 70, ring 20, shoulders 10, amulet 10, gloves 8, helm 2, pants 15, my belt is worth a fair bit but I traded the one I found for it so.... don't remember weapons but they were 10ish each I think. And I can only do mp7.... sadly. This was all about a month ago, haven't been playing much recently.

I'm still slogging along at my single player melee no-AH game (I sell for crafting money, and buy materials but the only gear I've bought was a mid level belt of almost exactly the same specs as the one I accidentally sold.... :) ), but damn it's getting frustrating. I'm one decent weapon away from being able to effectively farm above MP 1 or 2. My Life/AR/Armour are fine, but it just takes toooooooo bloody long to kill elites in the higher MP health levels.

Hell, I'm not even really one weapon away, I'm one socket for crit damage away..... ;)

You are doing really good actually... I have a couple items you would like... Too bad you are single playing it, however it is quite impressive what you have done on your own. If only they had the girl that could socket your items... Maybe in act V.
