post #6311 of 29803
"I looked through the last couple of pages for some advice, but I'm a little stuck. My friend is a level 37 wizard and can easily deal 1-2k DPS using super cheap items at the AH. I'm a level 34 Monk, but barely scrape by with 750DPS. I realize it is two different classes, but I can barely keep up with him when we play co-op. Can anyone help guide me to which armor/weapons and skills are good so that it doesn't take me forever to farm for items?"

I Also Had this problem, I Would die occasionally when coming up against elites in nm, AND SOME WERE IMPOSSIBLE TO KILL AS A MELEE (im talking about vampiric - plagued / desacrater/ molten).

SO I Tried to use crippling wave(Concussion) and Tail Lash kick(sweeping armada) with some +to life on hit gems / modifiers. This was OK but I still was getting my ass handed to me by some elite groups.

Then I saw a build in the Diablo Monk Forums for a Long range monk and I adapted it to my Lower level. It uses Deadly reach(keen eye) for long range spirit gen, and tail Lash kick rune for the fire tornado(cant remember it name) which you would switch to TLK (hand of ytar) later on. then you get your self some sprit regen claws ( or dioblo monk staff if you want to use the guardian path passive)
Air ally for some tanking and spirit regen, the templar for spirit regen, I also use the passive for Longer mantra and the one for heal on spirit use, and larger Spirit pool. Mantra is mantra of healing (Circular breathing) for sprirt regen.

Spam TLK for good damage, range and heals, Use DR for small groups, spirit gen and when mobs line up for you.

Check the AH for some less expensive rares (you will be paying 5 grand for a Blue from a vendor anyway) you can get a +spirit gen monk headgear too, you want to stack dex, vit, spirit regen, resists, + life from globes is not bad too.

Right now I am Level 42 I have just finished act 2 NM solo using this build and Its works quite well for me I have only died 1 time since using this build due to my own stupidity(caught by 2 arcane sentries spawned from elites)

Kite away.

Or does the weapon only come into play when it is actually used? (i.e you run out of mana). I know that if I dequip it, my guy does like, 5 damage, however I havn't tried attacking anything without a weapon in my hands yet.
And if so do I need damage and strength? Or can I just go full on intelligence for the power of my mage attacks?
Are you guys picking up what i'm putting down?
Your abilities do damage based on the damage of your weapon. The descriptions will say something like "does 110% of weapon damage." So, a higher DPS weapon gives you higher damage. Also, items such as rings and offhands with +damage help a lot, as well as any items with +attack speed bonus. Intelligence also increases your DPS.

Your spells are based on your weapon damage + extra damage (from rings / ammy) muliplied by your int in percent. (For every extra Int you have you gain 1% more weapon damage)

So at lower levels getting +damage rings / amulets realy increase dps.

As you get higher, upgrading your weapon is going to net you the largest DPS increase.

I would look into getting 2 decent weapons around 100 - 200 dps on each, and I usually like the +spirit per second mods on them and a socket for a ruby. Next get decent gear with Dex / vit, finally use +damage / ias / dex rings.

This should kick your damage up quick a bit more.

Half of surviving is being able to finish the enemy before they kill you, the other half is avoiding enough damage / healing enough. Things will change as you go further in hell and hit inferno (you will need to stack resistances etc.)

But for the time being spend 20-30k on 2 really good 1 handers (I always like the first weapons).

Yeah, I mean I'm patient and understanding, I'm not even mad, but it is getting rather comical.

You have 30 days to get your money back, no matter where you purchased. So open a ticket and do it if you aren't going to play a game just because there's some downtime.

I get some downtime, but this is pretty bad for a company that has all this previous experience and money. The game hasn't been 100% since it came out. It's playable but there's a bunch of broken crap. Might as well still be in beta.

rule of thumb for damage (until this changes)
DPS > whatever the classes natural stat is (unless its insane amount)
socket the highest grade ruby into a weapon and whatever your natural stat gem is into everything else but I recommend amethyst in helms for life
