first up One with everything is about the most useful skill you can have once you enter inferno ; i dont deny that. but all in all One with everything is very costly. 1st of all its a passive slot (alright that is kinda fine with me) 2nd Blizzard itemization precludes effective stacking of a single Resistance Lets Elaborate on my second point. Lets face It single Resist Affixes are useless trash for everyone but Monk and the reason for that is is simple + all resist is a far superior Resistance stat. because + to all resist has about the same item budget as + single resist. so its not unlikely that you can either find a ring with +30 all resist or + 30 lighting resist on the very same item level. which one would you prefer generally speaking ? also in Inferno we need Hoodles amounts of Resistance ; as far as i can tell we need _atleast_ around 1000 resistance and plenty more armor than the average bear. that being said One with everything does not really provide you with Bonus Resistance like Warcry "Impunity" (20% armor 50% resist ) you merely trade Affix slots for a slightly better version. but lets be honest most inferno act 1 items have only 4 affixes to begin with and sacrficing about 2 of ~4,5 affixes on about 70% of your gear does not leave you much in the way of dmg or other useful stats like IAS (gloves rings Amulets) Vit + Dex and generally stuff which is required to deal some kind of dmg. and even if you manage to get your 1k resistance up you need atleast 10 k armor to multiply your accumulated resistance to an effective degree ; and than you still need some kind of fluent heal like life on hit / hp reg ; all of that while maintaining about atleast 10 k dps. i just think that the multiplyer for mitigation stats are just not good enough. evasion is a plus over the barbarian. but it does not help if you face Molten, Plague , Firechain, arcane, Frozen etc ; because these effects can never be dodged. and even than i think that the diminishing returns on evasion per dex are the most severe ones of all defensive stats. that being said iam very unhappy with the current state of the monk. Heals dont scale and will by no means ever be able to compete in Inferno. Mitigation multiplyer are weak in comparison with the barbarian. ( i would trade my Mantra of Healing with 310 hps and 20% resistance in a heartbeat with Warcry impunity (20% AR 50% resistance) so how do we make the game design of this mess better and smarter? 2 points ; hear me out on both before you judge. First Buff single resist affixes. i think that Single resist affixes are very useless affixes deliberately made weak to deny the abuse of One with everything. + all resistance provides about the same amount of resist to about 6 Resitances at the same time: that being said i think that single resist affixes should be atleast 4 times as strong as a all resist affix on the same level. so it should be possible to find a level ~50 item with +20 all resist and + 80 Fire resist. this would make Items generally more useful and allow you to adress your weaknesses (say you hate mortar > go stack fire / phys resitance ) Second change one with everything. it would probably be too good with single resist affixes being 4 times as strong as they are now ( as is only fair for everyone who does not has one with everything in its current form ) so how change it ? i would change it this way One with everything grants you Resistances equal to 40% of your combined Resistances and spreads them evenly across all Resistance types. eg say i i have 400 phys 200 Poison 250 Fire 100 Ice 100 Lightning 250 Arcane / Holy - resi That is a total of 1300 Resistance Points. so this version of One with everything would grant me 520 bonus resistance ( 1300*0,4 ) and would spread them across starting from the weaknesses. in an attempt to even out the Resistances. 400 Physical 284 Poison 284 Fire 284 Ice 284 Lightning 284 Arcane so this would be what your new resistances would look like once you opt for one with everything. these are my 2 cents ; i think it would generally improve the itemization. for all classes and it would make One with everything a real Bonus not just a shady trade of Affixes due to flawed itemization. any thoughts ?
