Toughness is quite high (24M in game), but since DPS is so low, death still can happen. haha >_<

The two quick things is changing the cold skill line on the amulet to fire, and re-rolling vit to crit chance on the RRoG.

But umm the game doesn't always co-operate.

:(
Your toughness is WAY higher than it needs to be. Even if playing zdps spec.

Get crit chance EVERYWHERE you can: Jewelry, gloves, bracers and helm all should have cc.
Crit dmg needs to be on both weapons (130 per socketed emerald) as well as on amulet (potential 100 there) Those rolls alone will give more dmg than any other possible roll (except maybe shard of hate since it's proc is insane)

Some CD on gloves and rings is also advisable

It looks like you have some solid fire gear so I'd gear towards either a CDR tempest rush build with epiphany or a LTK no-generator build. Either way, you'll want some more CDR gear. Do you have Capt Crimson or Borns plans? If so, craft Capt boots/pants and Born's weapon/shoulders (yes, you'll lose Aughild bonus but the short downtime on Epiphany is worth it)

SW:Fire is just not worth it at all - dmg sucks and it's expensive to cast

Maybe check out Druins TR/Epiphany guide over on BoG: [Guide] - Tempest Rush / Inner Fire - Normal to T6 | Banned of Gamers

That's what I run just fine on T4. Could maybe do T5 too...haven't tried. My monk for that spec: WongWei - Community - Diablo III

Wow!

Thanks man.

I was originally just planning on making this monk to be a meat shield for my friends. But in that scenario it's just better to use the DH to help clear faster anyway.

I'll give these options a try :)

SInce they "buffed the drop rate for T2+ bags" I've done a similar number, all on T3+ and have yet to see a second one.

it's because its a random drop unlike crafting mats that you can farm specific type of mobs to acquire it. having said that, I don't remember either where I got my TF from:)
