So I've tried out a lot of things, especially after reading all the theory crafting. Anyone got any questions so far about what's doing good and what isn't?
I see a lot of people going Fists of Thunder / Thunderclap with Crippling Wave / Mangle as their primary secondary. I can tell you right now that when you get access to Way of the Hundred Fists / Hands of Lightning that is going to be your BIGGEST single target DPS burst.. period. I haven't found anything to top it yet in any skill / rune combination.
If FoT is 1 and WotHF is 2 then your single target DPS rotation is: 1 2 1 1 2 1 and so on. If you stop to use any other skill for a single target you're actually going to lose DPS.
You can get that combo fairly early. Here is my current build.
It allows for massive aoe damage, sustain through probably the best spirit dump in EP comboed with Transcendence. SSS is used for mitigating damage more than anything with DS being a get out a jail free card.
