The retribution one unfortunately seems to be countered by the monks innate higher dodge chance (you get hit a lot less so it deals a lot less damage than it would on someone without dodge but with higher armor lik a barb).
the evasion one also doesnt seem to be that usefull anymore, as I have around 22% dodge chance without skills and further dodge increase is heavily subject to diminishing returns. also, dodge wont help me getting one shotted later on.
so I'm thinking: mantra of conviction. this thing is just flat out a 24% damage increase (with the first rune). that's awesome. if you spam it in boss fights, you get 48% incrased damage. even more awesome.
so I am testing this right now, what have you guys experienced so far?
