    Default "Best" monk endgame gear layout

    Best is subjective... but... having finally gotten my epic gem shard today and thus enabling me to put into place 4 item swaps that I had had in my bank, I was wondering if people have a vastly different equipment layout once everything is said and done.

    I've tossed around the idea of tossing out the Sun Soul set entirely and using Red Robe and possibly spare hand + EE twisting shade bracers... but trying to figure out how to fit in +7,+2 stats makes my head hurt. Also, I'm a huge fan of the Sun Soul bracers - Sup. Parrying, 7wis, 2 con is just awesome.

    Helm: GS Smoke/HP
    Necklace: Epic Grim's w/ heavy fort
    Trinket: Epic Gem of Many Facets
    Gloves: Epic Gloves of the Claw
    Armor, Belt, Bracers: Sun Soul set
    Ring1: Telvin's Touch (charisma + exc. wis)
    Ring2: Epic Ring of the Stalker
    Goggles: Tharnes
    Cloak: Adamantine Cloak of the Bear
    Boots: EH Treads

    A notable flaw in the above equipment is that there's no source of insightful strength... but I feel that it's more than made up for w/ +6 damage from Claw and Sun Soul sets. There's also no +8 wis

    Has anyone managed to put together a cohesive setup involving Red Robe & Epic Spare Hand?

    I'm doing a similar build, except I have a Min2 helm and will use the Shintao set. Get a +8 spider-spun and upgrade through favor to still get Sun Soal set bonus.

    I ran a similar setup on my monk before I started my latest round of TR's. I found it extremely hard to justify the red robe on a monk. The sun soul set is just way too good to give up. Going with the red robe does make it easier to fit in the Epic Spare Hand (sun soul belt is mainly there to fill out the set). So an alternative is to go red robe and Epic Spare Hand in place of the robe and belt for the sun soul set.

    I ran Litany/cove gloves/epic charged gauntlets over the epic claw set. Dps is likely a bit lower, but Litany provides other benefits, notably +20 hp with an even con score.

    I just can't see dropping the sun soul bracers for anything really except perhaps heal amp/sup parrying if you have your con/wis slotted elsewhere. Those bracers with a guild slot become much more appealing. That's assuming you drop the set for the red robe. On a pure monk, the VoN red robe is the only option. The eveningstar one is a dps loss compared to the sun soul set.

    VoN Robe over Cormyrian version? I just don't see it really - that seeker10, heavy fort, toughness, prot6... they're all so juicy and would allow for a lot of flexibility in the build. In terms of simply DPS, the flaming burst would have a slight edge over seeker10(as compared to only having seeker6)... but still.

    Toughness, prot 6 (or even 7) and seeker 6 are very likely slotted elsewhere, making the Cormyrian robe essentially a very snazzy ex seeker +4 robe. Now if you just can't slot those things elsewhere it's nice consolidation, but the +2 damage (all the time) of the sun soul set easily beats out +8 damage on 19/20 only (assuming handwraps). Even if you run earth stance exclusively that's only +1.2 damage per swing on the Cormyrian red. +3.5 on the VoN red (assuming mob takes fire damage). If one were looking at dropping the sun soul set, I personally can't see going for 1.2 damage (only on crittable mobs) compared to 3.5 fire since many endgame mobs now take fire damage. Cormyrian will save you a pile of epic tokens which also might be a factor I suppose.

    The layout for my 12/6/2 is a bit strange but here goes:

    Head: LGA DEX 6 of Melee Alacrity
    Neck: Oremi
    Trinket: Litany
    Cloak: Epic Night L24
    Belt: Epic Spare Hand (green:100% fort, colorless:empty)
    Ring: (swap) Epic Stalker/Dun’Robar
    Glove: PDK
    Boot: GS HP Smoke
    Bracer: Epic Jidz (yellow:GFL, colorless:CHA)
    Armour: Spider /w +3 insight WIS
    Goggle: Tharne’s


    For a pure or more conventional build I’d do something
    slightly different, probably adjust to incorporate the sun
    soul by moving the stun DC’s to the bear cloak, HP to the
    head, corrosion boots /w +2 luck, and otherwise leave
    things about the same.


    Shintao would be stronger in some situations, especially as
    the Oremi set does not appear to stack with the old red.
    (I haven’t tried recently, if oremi+red stacks now then sweet)

    The new red is not particularly useful for a wrap based monk
    as its properties are available elsewhere and seeker doesn’t
    benefit 20 x2 weapons as much as say, a step up on the dice chart.

    I'd personally swap the Epic Ring of the Stalker for a ToD ring with Holy Burst and slot Drow Smoke Goggles instead of Tharnes. The sneak attack bonus from Tharne's is nice but slotting Manslayer on your goggles opens you up to the extra damage and DR/good breaking on your ToD ring, and if you end up in a situation where you need True Seeing you could always toss on Tharnes or Lenses of the Woodsman temporarily.

    As far as boots go Madstone are always nice if you're not scroll healing (otherwise it's too much of a pain in the ass having to switch into Defensive Stance every 3 seconds because your boots keep proccing), but Treads are also a good choice, as is slotting your Greensteel there.

    just my 2 plat

    This strikes me as a good gearset to use for trash (stunning on gravewraps):

    Code:
    Helmet 		6 Con Skills, +45 HP, +5 Protection, Heavy Fortification
    Trinket 		Litany of the Dead
    Goggles		Tharnes Goggles (5/8 Sneak attack +TS)
    Necklace	Shintao Cord +6 Con, +15 Concentration
    Armour		Spider Caparison: WIS OR DEX 3/8, +9 AB, +6 res, +1 Ki, reinforced fists,toughness +15 con
    Cloak		Epic Cloak of Night - Invisibility Guard, Ghostly, Deathblock, Nightmare Guard, Dodge Bonus +3, DR 10/Good
    Gloves		Gloves of the Claw Strength +6, stacking 5 intim, 30% heal amp
    Bracers		Bracers of the Claw, +2 insightful con, heavy fortification
    Belt	Spare Hand (Tier 3)-Riposte, Exceptional Combat Mastery +5, Staggering Blow, Disable Device +15, Open Lock +15, Use Magic Device +3, Doublestrike 3% [GOOD LUCK][Colorless:CHARISMA +6]
    Boots		Madstone Boots
    Ring1 		Ring of the Stalker [COLORLESS:CHARISMA +6][[YELLOW: GREATER FALSE LIFE]
    Ring2 		Kyosho’s Ring Wisdom 6, exceptional strength +1 [SHOCKING/HOLY BURST]
    Quiver		Quiver of Alacrity
    For bosses your going to change your wraps, but the basic setup is solid.

    As an alternative to the claw set (maybe its too much farming or w/e) this setup is nice:

    Code:
    Helmet 		Greensteel HP item w/Blurry
    Trinket 		Litany of the Dead
    Goggles		Cannith crafting, large HP slot blindness w/ +4 to hit. Swapout for TS/+3 to hit Lenses of the woodman.
    Necklace	Shintao Cord +6 Con, +15 Concentration
    Armour		Spider Caparison: WIS OR DEX +8/3, +9 AB, +6 res, +1 Ki, reinforced fists,toughness +15 con
    Cloak		Epic Cloak of Night - Invisibility Guard, Ghostly, Deathblock, Nightmare Guard, Dodge Bonus +3, DR 10/Good
    Gloves		Epic Brawling Gloves +7 Strength, 4/7 sneak attack [YELLOW]
    Bracers		Convalescent 30% of Superior Parrying
    Belt	Spare Hand - Riposte, Exceptional Combat Mastery +5, Staggering Blow, Disable Device +15, Open Lock +15, Use Magic Device +3, Doublestrike 3% [HEAVY FORTIFICATION][Colorless: INTELLIGENCE]
    Boots		Madstone Boots
    Ring1 		Ring of the Stalker [COLORLESS: CHARISMA][[GREATER FALSE LIFE]
    Ring2 		Kyosho’s Ring Wisdom 6, exceptional strength +1 [SHOCKING/HOLY BURST]
    Quiver		Quiver of Alacrity
    I would only ever use the full Sunsoul set if I were making a Earth monk, as the damage reduction seems to be the only truly worthwhile bonus.

    And what if you want to run in anything besides GMoF? You would have to twist in piercing clarity instead of sense weakness (foolhardy at best). I am of the opinion that Drow Smoke Goggles are absolute rubbish if you have access to an epic stalker ring. In addition to the other benefits, you are effectively getting +13 damage with every attack against a mob for which unbalancing strike works (ie. 95% of the game). The only combo that deserves comparison is possibly Avithoul Seal + Drow Smoke Goggles, but with that combo, you'll still be on the losing side with no TS, ghostly, and the loss of slots.

    That's indeed an interesting gear setup. I guess that's the type of layout I was tossing around in my head sans the red robe. With litany, the build's con and str stay the same, overall saves take a -2 hit, 1 point of exc.wisdom is lost, and 9PRR is lost as well. And, since +damage stays the same, it's all for the sake of 3% doublestrike. Blah. I think I'll be staying content with my current setup until Epic GH gets launched and everything gets turned upside down once again.

    I don't like the other destinies so I will be only in GMoF except to earn my twists I like how my monk works now and she is only a 23rd lvl 1st lifer now my other character might be a different story when he gets back to monk as he has 1 ranger life 2 paladin lives and 3 monk lives so far and working on paladin life 3

    I like not having to count on an item for ghost touch or ts only my tr guy has thanes and the shinato set the other monk has the shinato ring and smoke goggles I don't have time to grind for gear like some have(not putting people down I am jealous of them though)

    Tidied up the above list, some inconsistencies. Could replace the armour with red dragonscale without too many difficulaties.

    The main reason for this layout is I aim for 200% healing amp on my characters, and the 30% on the gloves is all I need to get there. The madstones seem to have changed fairly recently and I can still use clickies/FoL while madstoned, they're great to use atm.

    Currently thinking
    Head: minos/whatever somewhat open slot
    goggles: smoke hp
    bracers: sun soul
    belt: sun soul
    armor: spider spun
    trinket: gem of many facets
    gloves: claw
    cloak: drow cloak
    ring1: holy burst tod ring
    ring2: ring of stalker/ +2str/+5 combat mastery seal
    boots: treads
    necklace: golden guile

    Not really a final gearset but its what I'm working toward, could easily go with a min2 helmet and swap to tharnes/drow smoke goggles, Ideally looking at a seal of avithoul in ring2 slot

    My take for an somehow easy to get gear set. 2 possibilities.

    1.- Set 1
    Head: GS smoke
    Necklace: Shintao
    Trinket: Head of Good Fortune (updated)
    Googles: Tharnes/Woodsman
    Armor: Spiderspun (+3 WIS)
    Bracers: Convalescent of superior parrying
    Ring 1: Shintao (holy burst)
    Ring 2: swap - Dun'Robar +2STR/stun +10 - Any TOD with elemetal burst for bosses/Stalker
    Belt: Spare hand
    Cloak: Adamantine of the wolf
    Gloves: PDK gloves
    Boots: Treads of the Shadow (the best you can get)

    2.- Set 2
    Head: GS smoke
    Necklace: GS protection (Deathblock, poison, deisease), Silver flame tier 3
    Trinket: Head of Good Fortune (updated)
    Googles: Epic time-sensing
    Armor: Spiderspun (+8 WIS)
    Bracers: Convalescent of superior parrying
    Ring 1: Shintao (holy burst)
    Ring 2: swap - Dun'Robar +2STR/stun +10 - Any TOD with elemetal burst for bosses/Stalker
    Belt: Spare hand
    Cloak: Adamantine of the wolf
    Gloves: PDK gloves
    Boots: Treads of the Shadow (the best you can get)
    almost
    Edit: Forgot to add handwraps: Mostly Ivy wraps for survivability (esp. for light monks) or almost any high damage lootgen (again esp. for light monks). Grave wrapings or antipode lets you swap Dun Robar ring (almost always on in trash fights) for anything you feel like.


    On both sets you use the slots in the belt (and googles in 2 nd set) to adjust (+6 CHA for Kukan-do, GFL, etc.)
    Not really much grind except for Kyosho ring in set 1 and epic google in set 2.
    Other stuff can be traded, crafted, easily farmed.

    some helm that I haven't bothered to farm yet. (granted I haven't farmed out most of this, tbh. Only 16)
    Tharnes Goggles
    Golden Guile
    Epic Gem of Many Facets
    Adamantine Cloak of the Bear
    Spiner Spun Caparison (ins +3)
    Sun soul bracers
    Sun soul belt
    EE Treads of Falling Shadow
    Epic Gloves of the Claw
    tod ring (probably actually the pally cha/cha one) with holy burst
    Epic Ring of the Stalker
    Air/Air/whatever Alchemical wraps/Grave wrappings/some cool lootgen/maybe antipode at some point

    and as for the lack of a +8 wis item, when I get her a +5 tome that would only make my wis odd. Either way, I'll only have 40 standing

    But essentially this is my Rogue/Monk stunny build speed buster thingy
    De'Corenai of Argonessen. If you've seen me, you know what I'm talking about.

    Hard to say. But without a doubt the gloves and trinket would have to be the eclaw set. It's just to damn all around nice. Not to mention I believe some dev was talking about changing the way the gem works to include either or of a set.

    Ring slot wise, I would think the mystic one paired with the necklace for the extra 1d6 fire would do well using the ring for holy burst.

    The other ring slot, I would go for probably the SA ring which gives wis or dex as a bonus to it. It nets you the 5 sa plus the exceptional SA, where as the stalker ring only includes one. The seal also gives you the deception that the golden guile holds. Of course SA is important because it should really always be going off constantly.

    As for the sun soul set, I find it nice except for the fact that it requires a belt slot. The spare hand is just a very convenient peice of equipment with the combat mastery, and double strike, and reposite and staggering blow, as well as the umd for gravy, and a +1 exceptional slot with a blue slot. I mean damn!

    No way id wear the sun soul vestment over the caprice though. Gotta get the favor and do without until then.

    Really most of the gear (head boots, goggles, bracers, cloak,) All really depend on how you want the stat numbers to lye. Or more importantly, which vital piece of armor or jewelry you finally obtained that has the stat that you will work around. (For instance I finally was able to find a +10 stunning gor hide. And you better believe I moddled the stats around that damn thing for one of my melee alts.)

    But as far as the gloves, trinket, vest, belt, and 2 rings, those to me are pretty much set in stone. The rest is whatever you make of it. Prioritizing, dmg or defense. Saves or amp.
    Through avarice, evil smiles; through insanity, it sings.

    My problem now is the U17 yellow slot changes... no more Greater False life in the Cove Gloves. Does anybody know any place that a monk can have a Blue slot?

    If you currently have GFL in your cove gloves (or any other yellow slot), it will stay there. Just don't convert the gloves to the new augment format (or unslot the GFL), and you can keep using the old epic augments forever.

    Sadly, my cove gloves are tier2 (didn't have a monk in the last cove). So my plan to upgrade and slot GFL went down the drain.

    So... I am trying to build eCharged gauntlets before the update and I got a ring with GFL to fill the gap...

    Looks like the new Gianthold will bring new possibilities... so not too worried about it I will be hunting for new shiny stuff anyway
