Shenlongs set or Maximus?

Hi

I have finally saved enough for my Shenlongs set with the cool new set bonus etc for my Monk. Though I am disappointed.

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Vaahn-1267/hero/1179556

Before equipping the two shenlongs, i had/have Maximus with LoH, good dex and a socket/crit dam gem. When i equipped Shenlongs set i lost 5k dps.

What do you guys think is better? Shenlongs with the faster attack speed and set bonus or Maximus with 5k dps increase?

My follower also has a Maximus so the demon isnt a worry anymore.

Please advise your thoughts?

There aren't even sockets on those Shenlongs, that's a large part in why your DPS lacks. Get some sockets and throw some emeralds in there. Shenlongs with sockets are pretty dang expensive though, you might be better off running the Maximus until you can save up for the sockets.

Exactly. with sockets its just crazy prices. I thought the increased dex and IAS would prove a dps increase but apparantly not.

Tho, my attack speed with Shenlong equipped is 1.9 per sec, with Maximus its 1.1.

So, as a stat the dps might be more with Maximus, but surely id be doing more damage with Shenlong set?

You should look at acquiring Won Khim Lau. The next best legendary for monk is probably Echo Fury.

I think both names can be decent nicknames for your "johnson".
