I would say that as long as you are below 100K dps, you should go for LoH...
But after 100K dps, you should get 5-6% Life steal...
It doesn't matter if it's on 1 or 2 wep's... It all comes down to your build and playstyle.
I went for the skorn, because I wanted some really high numbers, but if the dps output is the same with 2x 1handers, it's all the same health wise...
Well i have 86k totally unbuffed and JUST under 100 k dps with blazing wrath and scoundrel buff, am at 4.90% lifsteal and its amazing already. As long as you have 2 1 handers with LS and about 70 K + dps it should be fine.
LoH is really strong for fast hitting lower dps monks.
i have like less dmg then u but have loh on ring and neck (about 5-600) and ls on 1 wepon 2.5%
i do fine in mp5-6 and can tank most elites standing in lava etc so dont die much. uber bosses are np either i can easy tank ghom in clouds
I got a bit over 100k dps unbuffed (with shield), and I only have some LOH on my amulet & ring. On mp8 (haven't done any higher) I stay in poison cloud from Ghom from start and until he is dead. My hp never goes under half.
Im not saying LS isn't better, but what im saying is that you can have very high survivibility with just LOH also, even at higher levels of DPS... Assuming you got enough LOH/AS.
I just went the LOH route because I cba to get a LS weapon just yet (if ever) :P
I switched to LL. Combined with the way i play my monk now (Deadly Reach, Scattered Blows) it is amazing. Every third hit fully heals me if there are enough mobs around. Yet i have to get more attack speed tho. Am at about 1.24 APS
below 30k unbuffed dps - LoH 1200+
below 40k unbuffed dps - LoH or LoH/LS combo (700/2,5%+ ish)
below 50k unbuffed dps - 5%+ LS starts to be enough already, small amounts of LoH still help
below 60k unbuffed dps - 5%+ LS
below 100k unbuffed dps - 4%+ LS
below 120k unbuffed dps - 2,5%+ LS starts to be enough already, small amounts of LoH still help
after that you can survive just fine with only 2,5%+ LS, everything more is comfy bonus
apart from going through every single evolution step with my monk on 600+ hours played, i tested around 25 gearsets and did around 50 gearchecks/monkpimps. this is what my own testings and feedback concluded about lifesustain stats.
this is with a proper resist/armor setup tho. "papermonks" gonna need more sustain.
People writing lots of stuff, but missing the THING.
low aps + high dps (skorn) >> life steal
high aps + mid dps (dual wield ) >> LOH
high aps + high dps (high end dw) >> either of them or both
low aps + low dps >> get better gear :)
I have 150k DPS unbuffed. I had a 2,8LL offhand Weapon.
It was ugly,... when facing many Mobs LL was enough and my Life was always capped, although i cant die to non elite cuz of pickuprange and globes.
When i face 3 molten Sorcerer in the Tower (dont know the actual Name, that annyoing range fat mobs that like to shield with this enchant), i cant survive when i have to run behind cuz of fear from Echoing Fury.
I feel saver with 1k Loh. Dont like LL that much, thats why i got LoH WKL.
If there are few Elite and no trashmobs around, Lifeleech drops in value, where LoH will shine (esp. with high AS, obv)
