Thanks for the build!  Having fun with it so far, but I'm still fairly early in the game.  Curious as to whether you took this through Endless Paths solo?  Currently CCs like stun seem to be my main problem, but that will hopefully get better with gear.

I have 3 paths for you:

A fast solution is to dump dex and max both str & con, so you can have an higher fortitude, wich is the main defence against stuns usually. Since you are using full attacks all day the low dex will not wither too much your dmg. And remember to eat something, so you can have other +2 to str & con, so other +8 to fortitude, wich is more or less what bear fortitude talent gives you.
The alternative can be just lvl up a bit more and come back after some time, so you will "naturally" have better defence.
The third path is just use the yellow potion to shorthen the duration of bad status effects during the fights, so also if they stun you duration that will end fast.

Do Crucible of Suffering and the potion stack by the way? That would immediately end all afflictions, wouldn't it?

I don't know you're still alive but, how did you through the early game??? it seems low Con and Res makes my character so fragile that one spider would just destroy me with 2~3 hit, currently lev 3, how did you manage to level up??? and i don't think dex and int isn't that good stat for monk....

I didn't mean any grammar mistakes (I wouldn't make fun of that). I meant the statement that DEX and INT aren't good stats for monks. ;)

The build seems to be ok. PoE's early game is the hardest part for any solo character so it's normal to struggle a bit - even with a monk (who usually starts strongest besides fighter due to the high starting values).
