    I was more offensive (30% + crit, around 1k dex and stuff). I tried to bum lres a bit for act 3 and lost some damage. It didn't work. Thoughts? Also, do I need to replace both daggers. I never managed to kill one elite pact on act 3 on my 2 tries...

    Working on more LOH and damage, but we're getting there.

    Just took a fast look, but atm I do not think that your weapons are where the problem lies. You kinda need more armor and resistance. Both you could get from a shield, and there you could also get some extra crit chance if that seems attractive to you. You will however lose quite some dmg I guess, as the extra crit dmg will be much lower.
    I do not think that you are that far from being able to do some dmg to act 3 elites, but you need a couple of quite easily attainable upgrades

    Your Weapons are fine, you need more resists... Also stop using MoR, change it out for MoE or MoH. MoH with Time of Need would probably help you most. Also your gems are grossly under leveled. Work on finding a better chest piece and pants... Those would be your weaker links. Your ammy could be changed out but I see why you're using it so when ever you get to it that would help you a lot. Also you're stacking a lot of Vit to be running a DW DPS build... The build you're trying to use needs more DPS.


    If you don't take anything else away from when I said take this, get rid of MoR... That's hurting you more than it's helping you.

    I have a few alternates for rings with crit attack speed and more OwE res and pants, but act 2 is a joke so why not build some mf. The occulus was found believe it or not. pimped followers for the most part.

    As guys above say your weapons are fine (I think they are great, much better than mine and I killed all elites down to Ghom).
    Your dex is extremely low. Monks get way more benefit both offensively and defensively from primary stat than any class because of Seize the Initiative and dodge being so good. It is fairly linear, at 5000 defense and 2000 dex : +100 dex will give 5% damage, about 1% mitigation from defense, and about 1.7% DR from dodge (measuring DR in this case as x [100% - DR]). Yeah, that's a 2.7% bonus mitigation making dex very efficient.

    17k damage you are probably struggling even in Act 2. Spam MC Overawe, you get +48% damage constantly. When I geared up totally ignoring crit and AS and using a shield, I had 31k damage with 500 resists, 6k defense. Recently I switched from Blade Storm to crit chance and OWE and cyclone, and let my damage drop to 25k but better killing speed. Point is damage from dex is much cheaper to buy than crit/AS until about 2000 dex you need to switch over.

    I am in the middle of moving to arcane resist and crit chance and have dropped a lot of dex.

    All good gear ! 2H are so slow. Not good for triggering LOH and Cyclone. This makes them unpopular. Also it's very hard to beat the bonuses from a second weapon or shield. 10 points for style though.
    I thought you would be using crippling wave considering your helm ? I used that for a long time and it works really well with less APS.

    Nice crit gear! +143 cold resist - could do with some more to benefit from OWE.
    I was wondering how useful is Dashing Strike ? Was considering it.
