    I've gotten quite bored with my barb and decided to finally finish getting through inferno with my monk. I've seen some stuff on YouTube about sweeping wind and how it takes a snapshot of your dps. What I understand is that you can maximize your screen dps, activate sweeping wind, and then swap gear to maximize aps/LoH while maintaining the earlier higher dps so long as you don't drop sweeping wind. Am I understanding this exploit correctly? I haven't been able to find any posts about this in the Monk strategy forum, so that's why I started my own post. I'm also asking because this seems like it would be great for doing ubers more efficiently. I don't mind spinning circles around them with my barb, but If I could just click and hold with my monk instead it would be much easier.

    Pretty sure they patched it so that it now auto refreshes when you drop/gain buffs or change gear. Gone are the days of blinding flash+SW pwnage.

    If that's the case, then I'm glad I asked.
