Monk support/tank build for Inferno group play [Mantra of healing hotfix]

  • #1
    Hello,

    I've been playing a very defensive skill setup when I've been playing with my friends in a 4man group in inferno. Now with the hotfix/nerf for the rune "Boon of Protection" of the Mantra of healing I don't think it's viable for a defensive support/tank monk.

    My build used so far:

    So now I was thinking that I might just boost up the offense for the team with the following skillset:

    It's very similar to the one I've used so far. Just with deadly reach being there to attack from a little bit of distance and keep up my spirit to spam my mantra to boost dmg done by the group. I'll probably still use a shield so I'll probably need to boost up my attack speed somehow to keep this up. Does anybody know what minimum attack speed I should aim for to be able to keep the mantra up?

    Or what do you guys think about the Mantra of Evasion with Divine Protection rune for defensive skillset. Because in my eyes the 20% resistance boost on mantra of healing with the rune isn't that much of a boost.

    what did the skill do in he past? ... wondering what the big deal is to where they needed to do a hot fix?

    Boon of Protection gave on activation a shield that absorbs 15% of maximum health. It now give a shield for how much it heals in the 3 seconds after activation if I recall right. It will anyways be replaced what I've read under the bluepost
