Perfect Balance is a great idea, but only if it's a boss/many mobs close together, otherwise it will be quickly wasted. I also suggest (if you like to dance around the mob like I do) using Twin Snakes in the first rotation to get that damage boost asap. Usually what I do to start is use the flank rotation first, apply Touch of Death and Fracture, then do the rear rotation with Demolish, refreshing Fracture and Demolish each time I go through their rotation, and Touch of Death every other time. Keeps the DoTs pretty much spot on even if you don't have great skill speed and allows quicker +damage appliation at the start. Otherwise, it's all the same, switching from flank to rear and back.

Hey man why not use #perfect balance at the start to get your grease lightning stacks up immediately?

Typo in the aoe paragraph. Rockbreaker replaces coeurl form attack, not arm of the destroyer.

Yeah that is correct Eviil. The gear guide is meant to just be a good starting point, more advanced players like yourself can go a step further and factor in multiple melds etc. It's hard to factor melded gear into a guide like this.

I understand that its alright to not consider lets say for example one i70 to another from the same slot, but I do know its a fact that a combination of certain items in each slot will certain yield more damage compared to another combination of another i70. Especially if its melded with stats. Therefore, I came to the conclusion that I will not follow certain tips from this guide. Great and well organized guide otherwise.

Add in your Fist of Death and Fracture after demolish, every other dot rotation refresh FoD as it's more than long enough... having 3 dots up at all times will net you more dps in the long run

OH GOD DAMN IT. Welp, Guess I'm gonna make a tiny sacrifice for style then.

@Jack, It's a subligar... LOL

Ignore what I said..I misread it in game. Snap punch is flank.

No touch of death?

The darklight is probably better. The gear guides on here are a bit outdated and need to be updated to be honest.

This is a great guide. It definitely rekindled my love for monk after XI. I never expected it to be a rhythm-based classed now.
Just wondering, where are the darklight pants in that darklight set? Do they not exist or are they just crap?
