Hi there.

I'm not really having trouble, I'm at about lv 26 in A3 (just got into the hole in the fort)

Suggestions for build? I would like to be a little more beefed up.

Currently:

- Charged fist w/teleport rune
- Roundhouse with fire rune

- Passive = Transcendance / Chant of Resonance

Mantra = Retribution

Breath of Heaven / damage rune
Exploding Palm / enemy takes more damage rune
Cyclone Strike - eye of the storm

any reccommendations to make me a little tougher? I don't die often, but with skullcleavers, I get my butt kicked.

What should I be using weapon wise? one or two handed?

That is my build to keep myself alive in nightmare. I stack dex and vit when I can, and use a shield since I'm way too squishy without one. Blazing Wrath helps offset the slight dps loss if that's a concern and can easily be kept up all the time.

Gah, that is the first I realized you can use multiple skills of the same category.... I see your build with breath and serenity and I'm like "how did he.... OH MY GOD ARROWS! How am I so blind -_- "

In game you need to turn on Elective Mode too

I started running double heal once I hit nightmare. Once I hit level 40 it was triple heal (breath of heaven, serenity+heal, mantra of healing+boon of protection) lol

Cyclone strike?

Really?

Bad damage for high spirit cost, bring people to you?

Even only in Nightmare, I found that very unfriendly.

Make sure to turn on elective mode in the options. This is what I've been using for nightmare and it's working pretty well through Act 3: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/monk#UcgikQ!bXd!bZaZab

Tempest rush is for escaping when you're mobbed or getting through mobs to the target you want to kill. Two mantras that I switch between often for the initial bonus.

No shield, but I have plenty of vitality
Is that so?
