Am I the only one who loves this generator? The dps increase of 15% is huge and while farming the +run speed cuts my times down drastically. I have tried and ran with FoT/thunderclap a lot, and it just doesn't seem to do better. And yes, I fully understand that with high LoH thunderclap is superior, but Im not that rich yet.. Just for farming and FLYING through A1/2, I really like WotHF/BF. With >30% crit 3 stacks is up almost instantly. Even procs off of barrels and such.
I've tried it for act 3. If you rely at least partly on LOH for survival and tornados for damage, Blazing fist is not that good. It has good damage and very good at generating spirit, so might be better off with life steal+lpss, but unfortunately there is no spirit spender currently thats close to sw/cyclone for increasing killing speed. (if you have sufficient crit chance and aps) And blazing fist generates much less tornados then thunderclap, even with the increased attack speed. So you gain 15% movement speed, which is nice, but you can get 10% with fleet footed, if you need it badly. You gain aps, thats nice too, but still less life from LOH and damage from tornados. Overall my monk died more then usual, and felt definately underpowered, compared to thunderclap.
For comparison I tried Fist of fury, which has been buffed for 1.04, and was much better for me. I dunno yet if its worth to change from thunderclap to FoF, but it was much better then blazing fist.
Maybe I was hasty with my conclusion about Blazing fist afterall... I'm using it now, but not as main generator, but to buff FoT/thunderclap.
Its awesome, feels like its almost doubling killing speed. (also switched transcendence to combination strike)
