My t4 Rift 15 min - Lightning Monk -- No EP

  • Hey all, I have been blowing away t3 so this morning I wanted to really get into t4. I had played around with t4 a couple days ago and higher torments. Higher Torments, EP is a must and other skills which are fun start being replaced into devotion skills to EP. Which is the flaw of the monk class in later torments, Our lack of skill damage.
    So today I wanted to make a video of me clearing an entire rift in I was hoping 15 mins in t4 without using EP. I was able to do it in one take and here it is.

    I am not claiming this is the best nor the fastest, obviously EP would of sped this up a great deal. However I wanted something that was still a fun build not devoted to one skill of kill and cleared what I consider acceptably fast on t4 or higher. T3 and below 5 min rifts are common. I would say I average probably 6-8 mins on most rifts given the mob count etc. However T4, the mobs and elites just have so much health and do so much damage that I figured 15 mins was a solid starting point.

    Anyways hope you enjoy the vid I recorded in 1080 and the file was about 26 gigs so awhile to upload lol. If you have any questions I will be glad to help. Oh also this was post SOH fix obviously since I recorded this this morning.
  • This has been a very interesting and educational read, so thanks for putting that video together and igniting a conversation. I know that not everyone is interested in exploring builds that don't yield the same efficiency, but personally, I think it's great and should be encouraged.
