Returning monk here, have been absent for a very long time, pretty much since RoS came out and I'm looking for some advice and direction. My current set up is not seasonable and enables me to solo rank 24 GRifts and I'm pretty comfortable in T5 -
I have got a torch, and also 2 of Sunwuko peices, amulet and shoulders. I did attempt the torch build but absolutely hated it, I don't think I have the gear to really use it yet, seemed very low damage, spirit just disappeared and I died extremely quickly.
I'm looking at reaching T6 and higher level GRifts, but not really sure what I need to be doing/upgrading. I do have the captain and born plans available from the blacksmith (I think that's what they are called).
Somewhat new to game although i've been reading up like crazy and have my monk pretty decently geared now (t5ish?)
Just got a torch last night and I"m trying to go for the Quin69 T6 Fire spec...my problem is I don't see the numbers in this game the way some of you guys do.
I would hate to ruin a good torch...would anyone make recommendations about my gear?
By the looks of your gear, and your weapon of choice, you would be more successful to go the wave of light lightning build because you do not have any fire % dmg on your gear, you dont have a furnace, or a cindercoat. Having these items will allow you to go fire build, but as it is right now Wave of Light - pillar of the ancients is the way to go, because it is the best single target skill without any elemental dmg on your gear. You should try to gamble Gungdo Gear bracers for this build too. Just round up the mobs, EP the lowest health one, and WoL it down. If you do end up getting a good furnace and a cindercoat you may go the fire build you are talking about and still be effective.
The issues I seem to have are either, not killing stuff fast enough and failing at the rift guardian / or dying too much during the rift before and during the rift guardian and having a long resurrection timer. If I use TZO Krin’s Gaze over Leorics helm I survive much better but don’t feel like I do as much damage since I am out of range sometimes with bane of the trapped. Additionally, I can’t decide which Sunwuko amulet would be better for my build, I have an ancient one with cold damage for EP and reduced ranged damage the other is a non-ancient CHC/CHD. See links below for the item comparisons. Lastly, I am trying to decide if its worth using a gift on my torch even though its not ancient, I was thinking of adding CDR or life per spirit. I am still trying to find a second unity for my Templar.
I play mainly solo, but occasionally in a group of two
Atm, i am playing on t2/t3 and can do relatively well in that difficulty, though i would like to find the way to gear up in order to do torment 6 efficiently (i am also unsure on the best build to go for with my current gear)
I would say just gamble for Sunwuko gloves, that 4piece should jump you right into T6 without much issue. Keep an eye out for a nice torch for a Wave of Light build if you want or collect the new Raiment pieces. I use the raiment set for my speed farms and it works fine.
Thehunta1, I think 2 1h-wep is comming back at full potential. But you should make your choice thinking about two things:
1 - Dragon has a big damage, making your spender more effective (including DS). It will give you a big potential to dmg when its legendary ability is active too.
2 - 2 1h-wep will give you more stats, more elemental dmg and balance. Some times, two 1h-wep will prove to be more powerful than a 2h-wep. With resource or CD reduction, they will enable you to use DS more quickly, potential to have 2.500 Dex, 2 legendary affixes to use, etc.
I should try to use the 2 1h-wep if their dmg is close to the dragon one. Your dragon is 2560-3803 dmg. If your Utar Roar is at least 2700 max dmg its a good option... Of course, if you dont find an ancient dragon.
I plow T6 without any problem. I'm stuck at 44 in grifts, having cleared 43 in 12:50, i'm aming for atleast grift 50
I'm aware that the dashing spec can be quite fragile, but i just cant seem to catch a break. White mobs are pretty much fine but all the time when elites show up and i pop my defensive i just go down like a sack of potatoes. I'm also at a loss for which item i should upgrade next, since i have all the right items in the right slot (quinn 55+ build).
Im glad for any help, thanks in advance
Sincerely a lost monk.
Edit: XP gem in head was from yesterdays xp farming in group
i play mostly solo apart from the odd game or T6 run
T4 with Grift 18 atm,wanting to get to T6 and 20-25 Grift
Hey guys newish to game been playin about a month. I tried T6 and cant take mobs, elites i just die very fast, especially when those purple beams come out its almost instant.
I heard the sunwuko set is good for T6 although im not sure what kind of gear is good for T6. Any advice as to getting more dmg or surviving longer would be great. Oh and all my resistances are around 1300-1400 for all of them crit chance - 32%(working on it and crit dmg is nearly 200%.
