Diablo 3 Monk Survivability Model v1.0.6


Well, this update isn’t as intensive as I was hoping for, however in light of the Diablo 3 Patch 1.0.4 release today I felt it was important to put this out. The changes for this version are as follows:

  1. Crippling Wave and Way of the Hundred Fists Spirit per hit values are increased, as per the Patch 1.0.4 notes.
  2. Exalted Soul is now included as a Passive Skill, as it now provides 1 Spirit per second as per the Patch 1.0.4 notes.
  3. Blinding Flash and related runes are added. The (base) skill is treated as giving the (elite) target a 30% miss chance for 3 seconds per CD.
  4. Added the Focused Mind enchantress buff. I know there are other increased attack speed buffs and runes I still need to add.
  5. Preliminary support is added for Sweeping Wind and related runes. Checking the box for this skill doesn’t currently really do anything, other than output a new line about ramp-up time (the Inner Storm rune works fine, though). I am still in the process of figuring out how to code a ‘true DPS’ measurement for Monks.. one that would combine character sheet DPS with the true attack speed and weapon damage of the various primary attacks, along with an accurate reflection of Sweeping Wind, Mantra of Conviction, and other damage buffs not included on the character sheet. At this point, I’m hopeful to have it finished by next week.
