Just to update some more info here, I already pre-seen that the gloves will be nerf and have a few backup builds that is equally fast without any of the shrines. And yes, with decent CD reduction, i can still spam breath of heaven. My point in the video should be pretty clear, the CD mechanic needs to be re-think, and breath of heaven doing both damage and healing at same time in a 50 yards that also travels through walls with no spirits cost just seems too over power to me.

Invis' Need for Speed RoS Monk Build, More Teasing: "Awesome" Weeks Ahead, D3 on PS3: Special Offer, Curse Weekly Roundupposted a message onI here send my official appologise to Zisss, I didn't intent to steal the name, it was a cool name he named his Wizard build, and due to recent event, the name just kind of stuck into my head. I didn't want to name this build at all in the first place since the video is only intended to point out the current issue we have as a monk and is addressing to Blizzard too. I will send him a message in game when he is online to notify my inconsideration while putting the title and making the video. For readers here that are not happy about this, I am sorry and please forgive me.Posted in: News & Announcements

Posted in: Monk: The Inner SanctuaryQuote from Formigahgreat guide, just one question.
I am good when i am playing solo, but people really get mad about the knockback and the fear from echoing fury (i know it doesnt proc a lot).
Is it a good alternative to use a won khim lau as off hand and replace the wall of light rune for pillar of the ancients? have you ever tested this ?
thank you invis, really love your guides and concern with the monk community
It depends on whether you still have sweeping wind cyclone, no cyclone, no need WKL, and if you have CM Wiz, there will also be no fear from EF, better to just go ahead and use cyclone strike to pull with pillar. If you are playing in group, 95% of the time you do not want to use any other rune of wave of light apart from pillar, unless you are really out DPSing the MP you are doing, knock back= less eDPS.

I actually stumbled upon that build recently while trying farming specs. I preferred pillars though for the drastically lessened knockback. I was testing invis version of nirvana farming spec (with dashing strike) but I just didnt' like irregularity of having to rely on nirvana window. So tried quickening with bells, had blind originally but found that since pillars attacks two second after the initial bell, it wasn't really that great with blind, so went to blazing wrath.
I went back to the EP build though and I still prefer it but glad you found something you like.
My version of Nirvana works for me because of my DPS, i pull a pack of monster and activate my infuse of light then everything would die, if there is one or two left, my cyclone will finish them off. If your DPS is not enough to clear the whole group then Nirvana won't be ideal for you. I usually say this, fist of thunderclap is still the most reliable build for most monks out there.

Thank you for the nice comments, I do play with different builds quite often, to help other people to enjoy the build you enjoy, maybe you can describe and list down the skills you are using. I am guessing it could be the pillar and sweeping wind build Have fun with your monk and monk power to all!Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary

One thing I tend to run nowadays is the dashing strike when I am DW, or TR when I am 2 handed. I believe a great build always involve a movement speed utility, not just fleet footed. It also makes the run feel faster. But try it out yourself and see which one is more efficient. At the end of the day, you should also choose a build you feel most comfortable playing and most enjoyable

My only critique is when you're farming Fields, you're attempting to pull too many monsters and going too far so you're leaving a lot of monsters behind.
Im gonna try your farming spec.
That is very true, I started to use the spec when I was farming DE, I tend to leave a few monsters behind and go for a faster run. Things will clear better if I use EP there, but overall, the feel of the speed seems most right when I farm like that. Not necessary the most efficient but it's my preference.

Hi Fellow MonksPosted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
Today I present my tutorial on a build I have been playing a lot lately, the "Nirvana" Build (Infinite Spirit Build). The main mechanic to trigger this effect is by using infuse with light along with fist of fury. To better demonstrate this, please see below for the first part of tutorial, but before that, enjoy the power of this build
INVIS destroying MP10 etlies with no Life Steal:
Video Tutorial on how to use the build (With Life Steal of course):
For more discussion and Q&A, you can also visit this fantastic post:
The second part of the explanation is to work out which gem is better and what weapon is better for that 5s duration, which is most of our DPS output, to see a tutorial how to calculate this and how to use my calculator, please see this video here:

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from superp123Its a forecasting tool to measure you optimal farming mp based on run speed and mp.
Saying its not accurate is like saying the numbers provided by blizzard are wrong, or the clear speed you feed it is wrong.
Invis over on the monk forums seems to think its a good tool, as well as Archonthewizzard, who by the way i done a live forcast while he was on stream. He noted it was accurate. All i needed to do was time his run speed over a couple of runs and note his mp.
This kill speed only included his in game time and not his log in and out time mainly because he is a streamer and does stuff when he pops in and out of games.
It's a tool to see which builds and MP may be better for you, it's not real DE/h, but at least you get to be a bit lazy and change your build and MP and note down the run time for clearing the VOTA for a forecast DE/h. but it's important to realize this is not your real DE/h, and each run could be different, so doing it at least 10 times is the starting point to get some more accurate result.
I used similar spread sheet which I did a while back by myself to determine which MP is my best MP and what build to use to have the best result for DE/h, once that is decided, I then do an one hour test to get my real DE/h.

Posted in: Monk: The Inner SanctuaryQuote from superp123Well cheers invis thats very cool of you, to find the real DE per hour i would need a lot more data.
It would be hard to mesure your real DE per hour tho other than like straping some monitors on someone and mesuring mental concentration. There is relly only so much you can do before you get in trouble lol
I think for most people it would do just fine tho, for now i will leave it at "AVG DE per hour", but... ill leave a tab for "Real DE per hour" just incase you want to do some testing lol
Don't get me wrong, I also find the spread sheet useful that's why I also created one to measure my efficiency between different builds and MP, I particular like the idea that I don't need to do a whole 30mins or 60mins run just to find out if dashing strike is better than TR...etc. I am only suggesting after you have complete the spread sheet test and settle with your build and mp, find a time and do an one hour run, you may get exactly the same result, but unlikely. Good luck everyone on finding the those DE and have fun crafting.
p.s BTW why didn't you post this in general forum? this is a useful tools for people to use it not just monk
