Topic.

Currently in Act 2 and having a difficult time.

What's the optimal:
1. Resist
2. Armor
3. HP
4. DPS
5. Dodge
6. LoH

Can't post current stats as the monk isn't mine, it's my brother's. I use Wizard and I'm surviving most enemies except for champs or elites with absurdly impossible affixes. My brother's monk on the other hand can kill really fast, but dies fast too.

Thanks!

I read a lot of monk builds that can facetank enemies in Act 1 and can farm act 2. I'm just looking for more input on this.

I'm not at my computer to quote exact numbers, but I can fairly easily roll through Act 2 with (relatively) the following stats (save certain elites)

48K HP
19K DPS
6.5K Armor
500 Res All
500 LoH
45% Dodge
(All unbuffed)

I find if my resistances were higher, some elite groups wouldn't be as obnoxious. And higher DPS would also be nice.

I use

Flash of light - with damage buff
Healing light - with damage buff
serenity - with increased duration
Evasion mantra - with hard target, increased armor
Or healing mantra - resist rune

Thunder fists with teleporting rune
Sweeping wind with increased spirit regen rune

I have over 6k armor, 44k hp, 580-600 resist, 16k dps, 1800+ LOH unbuffed.

I just beat act 3 last night with a barb and i can face tank almost any elite except the crazy ones woth molten/plague/desecrator.

Crippling Wave (Damage Reduction)
Sweeping Wind (More Damage)
Serenity (Heal)
Breath of Heaven (DPS boost)
Blinding Light (DPS boost)
Mantra of Evasion (Armor boost)

Likely not the best build ever, but I like it. Thinking of switching Blinding Light back to 7x Strike. I think it's a better panic button than Blind (works against arcane).

Crippling Wave is a waste of a slot
