Does it not sync gear unless you are a premium member?  Or just take a while?  My level synced fast, but my gear is still pretty old.

AUG Review

Your current AUG configuration is good for a defense oriented Monk (ie, Tank heroic augs w/AC).  The critique below is based on an offensive (DPS oriented) AUG setup.  Primary Heroics: STR, DEX.

You'll take a very minor AC hit with these swaps (-45).  But to keep it minimal, I only selected AC oriented augs with the above key heroics.

 Thanks Furro for taking the time to dig through that.  It was clear I was an AC-HP aug-based monk, and not a STR-based one.

Charm     GOOD     Gold Plated Spiked Gear Model VIII            
                          



I've updated, as many of the suggested augs I had in the bank.  The only change left to make is to replace the Hardened Steel Spur (in face slot currently) with the Blazing Protective Scales.

You'll note I also changed both earrings (for ones that had more heroic STR) and also used a Gem of the Eleventh Dualist and Rock Guardian Shard (AC33/HP25/hStr3).  I also updated the leggings as they are HoT Tier 1 Raid.

With these changes you suggested + the earrings, the following happened:

Str 766 > 786 (+20)
Dex 753 > 765 (+12)
Atk 2805 > 2823 (+18)
HP 52759 > 52737 (-22)
AC 5742 > 5674 (-68)

These are actual stats from the game, either the differences in what you suggested at 20AC off or it's a bigger difference in AC than expected.

Anyway, I figure I still need to camp the basilisk in Convo, but I think what I have is now better than the Crystal Dragon Scale.  And then look for raid-quality range and neck items (one dropped in Decon but I bowed out of bidding last time).

Also, I can't update my inventory, but in it is the House Clock Pendulum Bob with an Unbreakable Sandstone (217/36 ratio with a 75 dmg bonus), but I am not entirely certain that parses better than the two hand-to-hands.  And I do have a Hardened Energeiac Leather Tunic, as well as the epic 2.0 for click (it adds 10000 hp temporarily, useful) and a Dream Servant's Ring for Form of Defense VIII, and of course the old earrings for Soothing Breath III.

Do you know which Orb I should be using?  I've been using Metal for the AC.

I'll have to see now if I suck tanking in my group. :)

To do List

  • Raid Range item, for Improved Dodge 7 upgrade (you currently have ID5).
  • Raid Neck for Parry/Block mod upgrade.
  • Camp Convo basilisk for Blazing Protective Scales

question about the bard weapon stacking with song haste.
Does Rapier of Somber Notes stack with other songs and/or other classes buff/haste?

Depends on the song.
 
Bards have two forms of haste songs (v2/v3).  V2 is normal spell haste (can't exceed cap).  V3 is overhaste (I recall it's currently 30%).

An example of Bard Overhaste song (v3) would be Eriki's Psalm of Power

As for Rapier of Somber Notes, it's v2 Spell Haste 60%.  So, with a 40% or higher worn haste item, you'll be capped (100%) with symphony buff.

If you had an Overhaste clicky item such as: Girdle of Solusek Ro which has Ancestrial Memories I (12%).  Then an example of your setup maybe: 40% Item Haste + 60% Symphony of Battle + 12% = 112% Total. 


* EDIT: Exported my Divine Intercession GTT for ya, since your {} keys don't work you said.  Just right click/save as, the link there.  Adjust the color and/or add sound if you find that more effective.  I have it text only atm.

Re: Rock Guardian Shard.

I overlooked that one somehow in my search.  Good find, and probably not difficult to get.

With these changes you suggested + the earrings, the following happened:

Str 766 > 786 (+20)
Dex 753 > 765 (+12)
Atk 2805 > 2823 (+18)
HP 52759 > 52737 (-22)
AC 5742 > 5674 (-68)

These are actual stats from the game, either the differences in what you suggested at 20AC off or it's a bigger difference in AC than expected.

I consider that to be a mild trade off really (the AC hit, the  HP is meaningless).  My AC calcs were rough on paper and could have been in err.

Either way, +20 hstr gain +12 dex is nice overall. 

As you know already, but posting in case other DPS read this:

Heroic STR

Every 10 hSTR adds +1 to all attacks.
Indirectly, it'll boost your Attack as well.


Heroic DEX

Every 10 hDEX adds +1 to most (not all) attacks. 
Indirectly, boosts crit rates.  This maybe more in line with 25 pts hDEX per 1% crits.

Source: Above is from Brogett's thread/analysis of Heroic stats and impact on DPS over at The Safehouse.  An interesting read.

Aye, anything raid wise at our current tier will be an upgrade in this area.

My understanding is 2Hers for Monk DPS can't outperform 1h's.  But really, ask on Monkley Business imo and/or parse your own results.

Do you know which Orb I should be using?  I've been using Metal for the AC.

I'd stick with the metal for now.

AUG Review

This critique below will not match Ssark's.  This is because you're missing some seasonal event augs.  So basically, what I did was selected offense oriented hSTR/DEX augs with AC for a defensive angle. 

Seasonal Event AUG list provided further below, among other details.

Considering you just returned to the game this past year, you've come a long way.

AUG Review
 
Some of your AUGs are missing the key tanking heroics: STR, AGI, DEX.  The critique below is focused on AUGs with these heroics in mind, in addition to AC.  Trading off AC for heroic gains is acceptable.  Play the long game with regards to heroics, and it'll pay off in your mitigation.

Recommended Reading: A Different Approach To Warrior Itemization By Quillium.  This will help you make smarter gear choices with the above three key heroics factored into the equation.

From a Raid Tank perspective, another good read at TSW is: Raid Tanking.

* Note1: There are other aug options.  But in terms of bang for your buck basically, this aug is off a T1 HoT named Expedition Leader Krupp in The Feerrott.  You wouldn't require an aug shuffle to make it work either. 

These AUGs below are some other options you may have banked at the moment.  However, all will require an AUG shuffle.

Blood of the Fallen:  SoD task/arc line result.  The AC is slightly lower then normal, but it's the heroic AGI that you're after.

Pallorax Frozen Flame:  It may not have HP/End, but it has the key heroics you're after and AC to boot.  In the process of farming Curator's Treasure, you may happen on this.

Silver Dragon Scale: OMM Vendor.  Monster Missions, via PoK.  Just google for details if not familiar.
Red Dragon Scale: OMM Vendor.

OMM Note: With the OMM Vendor options, if you have brews to burn they're quick shuffles/swaps for instant gains.  From what I know, you don't box, and it'll be harder to form groups for these missions.  So in your situation, I would only consider these augs as a last resort if you can't flesh out the Gem of Unwavering Tenacity from Feerrott.


* TYPE 3 AUG Note: Missing Dodge 8% aug Icy Prism of Avoidance.  This is important.

* TYPE 13/14 Purity: As you upgrade your visible set going forward, switch to Purity 25 AUGs only.  They're dirt cheap from a variety of vendors now across several expansions.

* Powersource: Use Pure Energeian Metal Orb for AC gain.


Seasonal AUG Events

There are several seasonal events that result in extremely powerful AUG rewards.   Unfortunately, you missed them this year, so I'm just going to reference them here until they pop up again around April or so. 

Sacrifice as many kittens as you have to in order to get these when the events are live again:

Mana Laminated Gear Set

Bronze Slant Thread Pinion Gear Model

Gem of the Eleventh Duelist
Gem of the Eleventh Defender



Gear Upgrade Suggestions

Raid Shield for AC contribute to softcap.

Raid Range item, for Improved Dodge 7 upgrade (you currently have ID5).

Raid Neck for Parry/Block mod upgrade.

A couple things I have to mention because I feel they are important and were brought up in this thread.

Symphony of Battle - Symphony of Battle, the clicky from Rapier of Somber Notes, has never been considered great because of it's 60% haste. It's percussion modifiable attack buff is why people love it so much. The haste is just a nice bonus.

Heroic Strength - Heroic Strength's effect on dps is minor. 10 points is 1 extra damage per melee hit. A speedfocusing monk with 2 18 delay weapons (as in, the burn situation with the most hits being applied on a single target in the game) will only see about 8-9 dps per 10 points.

Heroic Dexterity - My parses show WAY less than 1% crit rate for 25 h-dex. My parses show closer to about 185-200 h-dex for 1% crit rate for a 90 max aa monk. I have reason to believe, but cannot currently prove, this is based on your current crit rate.
        ** The following numbers are theoretical, not actual **
Hypothesis - If a monk's crit rate is 9% and a rogue's is 10.5% the rogue would gain more from the same 175 h-dex.

This is what I currently believe, but have had so little time at my actual computer I've had no chance to test it (I also lack another max aa melee character with tons of gear I can switch in and out to modify heroics, but I can work with what I've got)


This is not to say you should or should not focus your gear/aug's on these specific heroics as they all have multiple benefits. I just want people to realize the effects are not going to be dramatic.
