Well, I'm a lvl 40 Monk now almost polishing off act 2 NM. I would suggest if you are having difficulty to rethink your skills then try to polish off your gear from a while ago. I was doing terribly. Then I redid my skills and replaced all my gear with low 20's req and now it's just cake. So far the biggest pain has been a pack of those whirlwind mobs in act 2 that were not only vortex, but also vampric. I just kept trying to run away and they would suck me back into the pack of them and regen health tongue.gif. My Mysic ally or w/e seems to be pretty ineffective right about now though. Anyone have thoughts?

little pet peeves i've been having driving me nuts:

-move out of the way of a physical weapon with my witch doctor, still get damaged even if weapon doesn't touch me... I seem to have the hitbox of the butcher.
-Wizard casts frost nova before monster teles next to you, they tele there after you cast and they still freeze... (this can really be exploited at the skele king).

A tip would be to find a weapon (preferably lvl 60) with "reduces level requirement" stat. I found a lvl 48 650 dps bow for 250k. Absolutely trashing Hell Act 2 atm, sure I die in 1 hit from most of the things, but they too get one shot smile.gif
Perfectly doable, I'm also wearing crappy lvl 30 armor on my lvl 55.

from the feel of it, it seems like for melee monsters, as long as you are in place for the hit WHEN the melee blade is swung, you WILL get hit



talk about gears in AH, is it just me or are weapons are WAY cheaper than other things?

For being so early in Nightmare, you should focus on armor/weapons for stats boosts. I wouldn't worry too much about stacking spells until you get to Act 4, which is when you need them.

What are you using for spells currently?



Unrelated question: I'm looking for the best boss in Nightmare mode that gives the quickest experience. Doesn't even have to be a boss; I'm just trying to level up. Currently I am running Azmodan (Act 3, last quest, part 3) then continuing into the first part of Act 4 with the first boss ("Iz" something). Are there any better areas to get more experience?

right now I'm using sweeping blows (have a + 6% damage item for now) don't remember the rune. Lashing tailkick with increased knockback/slow. Mantra of healing w/ spirit regen. Mystic ally w/ flame. Personal sheild spell w/ healing. and the cutting winds one. passives are + hp when spirit is spent, not exactly sure on the others.

I'm at work so I think I butchered that relatively well... I'm currently about 5k hp and 750 or so DPS i think.

and I can't check out that link since I'm at work if you wouldn't mind giving me a run down. blizz is blocked.

Also for those with low DPS issues ,just spend a little gold on a better weapon in the AH. going from an 800ish DPS weapon to a 1200 DPS weapon boosted my DPS by around 8500 for 700k gold. My group is farming to work on A2 inferno atm. I play WD with around 29k DPS,

54 monk in act 1 hell... 863 dex, 416 vit, 12400 hp, 49.38% damage reduction from 2634 armor, 38.2% dodge and 3234 dps...
Depending on what type of mob, and what type of abilities, some rare packs destroy me. I've still managed to kill them by switching abilities and a bit of kiting and such, but I still die a bit more often than I'd want. Should I be improving armor, get more vit, etc etc?
