Faster attack speed is nice, certainly as is the run speed, but I'm in the fortunate position of having a few of the old Reign of Madness 0 ML Rings and at low level I use a 30% Striding one. Will eventually replace that with the Abbot Quiver when I can talk myself into running it again. (I hate Abbot)
What I like about the Frozen Tunic is the ability to freeze mobs that can't be stunned (Undead, Constructs etc), this can be quite handy if you find that you've gotten a bit too cocky and gone in over your head. Being able to CC mobs when you're in a bind can be a life saver.
The Quicksilver Cassock is a decent item, and I'm certainly not knocking it, I have one sitting in my shared bank atm and I'm sure I'll end up using it at some point.
If you're not familiar with the Challenge gear it basically works like this.
You farm the ingredients and make the base item. Base item at this point is BTA.
Farm whatever you need to upgrade to Tier 2 (Items usually receive a small boost and for the most part attain full stats. Item remains BTA.
Farm whatever you need to upgrade to Tier 3 and the item now changes from BTA to BTC but can now be crafted upon. (Note: It only comes with +3 for crafting so you're limited in what you can place on it) Some recipies like +1 Dodge for example can be useful, but be aware that it will raise the ML slightly. Masterful Craftsmanship lowers the level by 2, so its a matter of choosing whether you want one copy of the item that you can pass around your alts, in which case stop at Tier 2, or if, as I plan to do you have a character you intend to TR a lot then it might be worth considering making it BTC and lower level.
A nice side effect of this is that it means that you can use the level 16 version of the Frozen Tunic at level 14, which has +1 Enhanced Ki and you can't access that anywhere else before level 18 (Oremi's/Alchemist's Pendant)
I have that too, but honestly I just swap them in when I'm fighting things that can be banished, mostly Vale etc.
My problem is I'm a bit of a hoarder and in my own way a bit of a perfectionist.
I don't have a ton of EE gear (I think I probably just have the EE Ivy Wraps off the top of my head), but for lower level gear my Monk is obscenely geared at this point. Just waiting on 8 more Shrouds then I can TR again and I'm sure you can imagine how awesome it feels to be pulling twink gear out of your bank at every other level.
