My first attempt at Tempest Rush.

  • #21
    Fists of Thunder + Sweeping wind. The damage is done like with any other monk build.

    Advantages:
    Faster movement between mob packs
    Easier to run after fleeing elites
    Can blast through groups, e.g. dps front of group until it is at 50%, then run through, dps back of group until everything is dead, or you can position yourself right in the middle of a pack to maximally benefit from your AoE.

    or with enough dps, on lower monster power levels, and enough spirit, i just make 2-3 sweeps thru mobs and let Sweeping Winds do all the work, thats why i've been using Blade Storm over Cyclone. There are times where i dont even have to throw punches.

    such a fun looking build

    nicely done

    I tried this build a few times and it is nice for mp1/2 as long as your DPS is high enough because i found you cant really wait around in a pack for long without my defensive passives. Once i got used to it tho it was pretty fun and fast. Really want to try it with a 2h skorn tho.

    thats how i got hooked. with my regular DW weapons i'm at 62K dps unbuffed, but that skorn jumped me up to the high 90s unbuffed or higher with certain gear. i lowered my dps to allow for better exp farming rings. Its pretty fun and gives me something to do when i'm mad or bored with the normal build

    I tried this build out a tad and i personally liked the combination of sweeping wind fire storm (massive aoe) + conviction submission. I think submision has the same mechanics as sweeping wind in terms of blind+heal then casting it to give optimal damage. i had low gear, but based off of my observations, high enough damage + lifesteal with 24% movespeed lets run at a mob, hit it once, and by then, the packs dead (mp1 with 80k dps unbuffed) Im pretty sure i had firestorm ticking for like 50K or more.

    spec:
    fot tc
    tailwind
    firestorm
    submision
    heal +15% damage
    blind +30% damage

    resist passive - fleet foot - some regen passive

    the 2 problems i ran into
    1. no lifesteal = lack of survivability
    2. i had a severe lack of spirit regen so i couldnt go for long.

    I play TR rush without a SoJ because off Hellfire Ring and Nat Set Ring, but then I use SW:Inner Storm for infinite Spirit.

    I've sold some awesome ring for 140mil and used it to upgrade my gear for this build. I've bought High dps Skorn for 8mil (now bidding on better one for 10), Inna's head with spirit regen, Amulet with high Crit and Critmdg (1k life after kill as a usefull and cheap bonus), similar ring, Inna belt and legs and changed Lacuni bracers for high crit rare.
    Basicaly my plan was to get as much crit as possible while dropping Attack speed to lower spirit consumption. I'm now on 1.09 attacks per sec so 11 spirit/sec used when Tempest Rushing.
    I use:

    SW with inner storm - 3spirit/sec
    Mantra of Healing, Circular Breathing - 3.
    Chant of Resonanse - 2.
    Inna helm - 2 (2.27).
    *optional* Stone of Jordan - 2

    So it's total of 10 Spirit/sec. I can use it nearly always and only punching elites to load spirit back up.
    With my current gear i'm at 172k dps so for regular mobs (mp 0) I don't stop at all. I also have SoJ if i don't want to run out of spirit at all but it drops my dps to 155k and i lose 6% crit that helps a lot. I also tested using SoJ and changing SW rune to Bladestorm or Cyclone and it gives very similar effect, hard to compare.
    Thanks to this spec i'm able to earn about 47mil exp/hour and I should be able to get it up to 50mil if I get some crit on my Hellfire ring xD. Also give your failed Hellfire rings to Followers for 7% extra exp (best follower is Scoundrel cause crit is best for this spec and it gave me 3k more dps than Enchantress). Maybe I'll record my run sometime if anyone is interested.

    sounds pretty good filus. i need to get up to that coveted 150K+ dps range. If i play on MP0 i could run thru mobs in and one shot most everything, but elites. One day, i'll get some better gear, like a inna's helm with spirit regen and a different SOJ. but i found that SOJ, and free is still best. I want a new hellfire ring with crit chance so it will be close to my yellow rings i wear. but, it will be a while. wont be playing for the next few days either. having withdrawals
