So for a pure monk are hand wraps still the only real choice even with this new ninja thingamabob?

Everything is situational.

Short swords opens up the realm of Wounding/Puncturing for monks...if you're into that sort of thing. But with the weighted handwrap fix...is the point moot?

I prefer STR dmg to Con dmg.

Why?

0 STR for caster = no cast
STR dmg to standard mob = little to no hits
STR dmg to Boss = minimized dmg

0 Con stuns and lowers Max HP <-- if it still killed them (mod8), I would contemplate swapping

It's all relative to playstyle - I've just found it easier to solo with Weaken Wraps.
