I looked at a few Tal armor sets but I didn't see any with Dex/Vit at my price-range which was disappointing. I guess I have to keep searching and wait for a good deal.
I might try and pick up a GF set for my DH and do some Act 3 runs in NM to save up for it in the meantime.
You could probably pick a rare armor with equal MF stats, compared to Tal's. I also looked for fun for Blackthorne Pants (spelling) and there were nice ones for 250k with 15% MF, 15% Gf, LoH, Dex, Vit, etc.
Last night we made incredible progress... in fact, we cleared Act 3 Inferno
Two man team, the DPS machine DH and my Tank Monk
We died maybe 5-7 times in the whole procress (started at Siegebreaker) mostly to some OP combinaison : Jailer,Plagued, Arcane, Fire Chains
Also, I was wearing my MF shoulders up until Cydea before i realized it
It helped alot after, went from ~640 AR to 749
. After that I also bought a pair of boots : 150 Dex/Vit, 50 Phys resist, 40 AR so I'm now at around 790 Resist all in tank gear
It's fun to tank but I much more prefer DW with my monk. Lots of upgrades need to be made because we can clear Act 3 while I DW tho
I also switched a couple of skills to help my build : I used Sweeping Wind - Cyclone instead of the one with more dmg since I have 27% Crit chance. It is amazing!
Ditched the DW Passive for Transcendance instead of Resolve to get a bonus healing while spamming Mantra. Tried FoT - The extra 15 spirit/ crit but I felt slow moving around with Thunderclap,s teleport so I switched back. Maybe with 12% Movement speed I would use the crit one to get more Spirit to spam more Mantra to get more burst of healing
