In my opinion/experience this build is currently one of the strongest possible monk setups for competitive greater rift laddering.
Mandatory gems:Bane of the trapped
Third gem:Molten Wildebeest's Gizzard - Need to test (If you need healing)
Esoteric Alteration - Need to test (If you need reduction)
Basic game-play strategy:- Maintain Sweeping wind
- Spread exploding palm
- Vulture Claw Kick to pop exploding palm
- Maintain your spirit with mystic ally on use and Epiphany
- Dash for mobility
Skill variations:Dashing strike - Quicksilver (T6 Farming)
Mantra of Conviction - Annihilation (T6 Farming ~ swap out EP)
Stat Priority:Helm: Socket>Crit
Torso: x3 Sockets>30% RCR>20% Fire Damage>11% Elite damage reduction (secondary: 7% Melee dmg reduction)
Legs: x2 Sockets
Wrist: 20% Fire Damage>ChC (secondary: 7% Melee dmg reduction)
Amulet: Socket>ChD>ChC=20% Fire
Weapon: 10% Damage > 6 Spirit Regen > LPSS > LPH > Vit
you want dex/secondary resist on all your pieces(where possible) & health globe bonus ownz for Mantra of healing/transcendence.
People WITHOUT furnace:Just use any weapon with the highest DPS/Healing or Run a torch build.
FAQ:Q: Why don't we use Gyana na Kashu?
A: Cindercoat makes your LTK hit much harder and more efficiently than GNK.
Q: Does the LTK Dot portion stack?
A: Yes, it stacks perfectly fine ~ but does it not crit, it scales with AVG CRIT (CHD/CHC)
Q: Why am i getting instantly killed g33+?
A: You need Unity equipped, and Unity on your active follower(with a "follower cannot die" relic)
Also! 1000+ All resistance | 16,000+ Armour | 350,000+ Health - Is a good amount to be around.
Q: Does the sunwuko 2 set scale with elemental damage?
A: Yes, the 1000% weapon damage proc grabs your highest elemental damage % then modifies the proc accordingly (all item damage cannot proc area damage)
Q: What gem should i put in my helmet socket?
A: Diamond. CDR = Dmg + Survivability!
Q: What normal gems should i put in my chest/pants?
A: Diamonds until your all resistance is over 1200, Then the rest emeralds(dex gems).
Q: What follower should i use?
A: Templar. Why? Inspire (x1.1 ALL spirit generation)
