    Armor Tank Monk everyone wants to be around

    Another build thingy focusing on Armor and support (like a metal bra).

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculato...Rgh!ZXf!ZcbYZa

    -- Spam DR and Cyclone Strike. +50% Armor as you furiously click that left mouse button. CS' damage and pull-in effect are awesome, helping monsters focus on you and ensuring sexy Resolve action. The wide heal buffs everyone's damage with Guiding Light, and is the only spot heal a Monk can spam.
    -- Hard Target to provide some dodge and buff everyone's armor
    -- STI because duh

    Variants: There's some interchangeable runes and skills. Some might not like Inner Sanctuary, or Serenity. Transcendence is also an option, depending on how much heal/spirit you get from items.

    It looks nice but I don't really know if I'd wanna use that Cyclone Strike on inferno. Maybe on ranged mobs but do you really want to be surrounded by hard hitting melee? Well I guess we won't know till we find out. Interesting build though. Hope it works.

    It all depends on your gear and the composition of your party, really. Maybe there's a freeze wizard. Or stun barbarian. Or 2 other Monks. Lots of factors, but in general I think it would work quite awesomely.

    IMO:
    Guardians Path > Guiding Light
    Crippling Wave + Concussion > Deadly Reach + Keen Eye

    For a tank build. I can appreciate the +armor from keen eye, but I'm not so sure it'll be as effective as concussion. And the +damage is nice from Guiding Light, but with all that damage your going to be taking from cyclone strike that extra survivability from guardians path may come in handy.
