Stats in Classic are scarce. Our goal as a Monk will be to have:

1) Best in Slot Weapons
2) 41% Haste
3) Strength/Dexterity/Stamina/AC/HP as high as possible. You may favor a particular stat. Different options are provided in many slots.
4) 250 Range item for Pulling
5) You may also want to pick up resist gear to swap for raiding/pulling. Most major options are included in this guide.

Below are stats you can expect with the gear below. Your results will vary depending on which items you choose, your race, and starting stats. This profile is showing options with melee stats.

If I missed a better item in any slot, feel free to let me know in Discord.
