    posted a message on Exploding Palm Explained

    Hey Guys, I've seen allot of different monks using lots of different runes for exploding palm. I wanted to explain why we see so many different runes being used. Its one of the very few skills in this game that almost all runes can be valuable in the right situation.

    Strong Spirit: Use as a utility skill to maintain spirit if you don't have the crudest boots or value alternative passives more than spirit regeneration.


    Essence Burn: Over all a poor performing rune now that Gundo is available. A very cool skill but even with Fire % its still way to low dps.


    Shocking Grasp: Scales with lightning % which you are most likely using. Its great when you are speed farming... dropping EP once instead of 2-3 times.


    Impending Doom: Very high damage output even without cold %, definitely an ideal choice for maximising your damage in higher greater rifts.


    The Flesh Is Weak: Not great solo but v good for group fights agains Rift Guardians and large health pool elites. At the least you will kill the RG 20% faster its worth noting this skill is a separate multiplier so its more than this.


    What runes are you guys using?

    posted a message on 100m crits monk cold build 2.1 testing
    Quote from kito90

    Change your off for a Fist of Azturrasq and you will see crits of 200m... Btw this is hard for killing RG.

    Edit: Tried this build and works really good on lesser monsters, it is like zdps but with dps if you know what I mean xD btw if you don't have a good mob, then you will never kill elites.
    Its funny kito because I was lucky enough to find the fist of azturrasq on the PTR but it rolled vit/spirit so I left it out. But ya I agree it would be a solid choice for the offhand slot. Ya its tuff for RG I found the same difficulties in my testing too. Over all I think its still competitive with more time spent on gear especially CDR/attack speed for more frozen uptime.

    Been testing a cold build on patch 2.1 with some fun gameplay for those interested in something different. Feel free to share your input.

    Omg gotta try that ! thanks.
    Hey Imedge, its pretty cool too see 100m crit numbers. I found with the holy build with similar dps I was getting 50m crits which is way more competitive but tbh having a cc monk in a team / another play style different too what everyone will be doing its too much fun to ignore.

    It would be awesome too if the stacks were visually represented. On 10 stacks the animation could look awesome....although it seems like allot of dev time which could be better used on the new patch.

    Hey guys I was lucky enough to find the new season 2 monk fist in the first 2 hours. Here's what it looks like for those interested.

    It adds +5-7 to your sweeping wind stacks, this adds on top of the existing maximum of 3.

    posted a message on [GUIDE] How to T5 Solo - Full Crusader Progression.
    Hey guys, I finally reached a point where I can farm T5 solo in hardcore. Monks are my main but I've been exploring the crusader the last 2 weeks. I've created a 3 part progression guide along the way. If you are trying to break into Torment 5 in hardcore or would like too this is how I did. Enjoy.


    Torment 2-3

    We can skip Torment 1 completely when starting a crusader even in yellow gear. This build requires 0 gear, we will be relying on the huge burst damage potential on the crusader for elites and hammers for the trash.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-sXz6w1-CA

    Build:http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/crusader#UeYiOV!acYS!ZbaaYY


    Skills:

    • Justice - Crack:This is our wrath generator / kiting skill.
    • Blessed Hammer - Limitless:Great for killing trash mobs with high returns for life on hit and very high damage per wrath spent.
    • Condemn - Vacuum:This groups monsters in position for hammers and bombardment along with good damage.
    • Bombardment - Impactful Bombardment:Our main damage dealer for elites.
    • Shield Glare - Divine Verdict:Used to freeze elites in place and increase the damage for Bombardment.
    • Steed Charge - Endurance:Mobility

    Passives:

    • Finery:DPS / Armor buff
    • Righteousness:Wrath Generation and +max wrath for extending the period between health globe's for potential Reapers Wraps returns.
    • Insurmountable:For increase toughness while getting close with hammers.
    • Heavenly Strength:God mode...allows us to use a 2h as a 1h.

    Strengths VS Weakness's:

    Huge burst damage against elites. Sometimes difficult to aim hammers, hammers don't wrap around above ground level area's like Chakram (DH).






    Torment 3-4

    For Torment 3-4 I used a toned down version of the Heavens Fury build (if you don't have Fate of the Fell then run the previous build). This build does have a gear requirement....their are alternatives to run T3-T4....this is just what I found most effective. We will be juggling between all our wrath generation skills for maximum Heavens Fury spending.

    Build: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/crusader#UldQfV!aYgS!ZccYYY


    Skills:

    • Justice - Crack:This is our wrath generator / kiting skill.
    • Heavens Fury - Fires Of Heaven:Our main DPS skill.
    • Provoke - Hit Me:Used to generate wrath.
    • Akarat's Champion- Prophet: Save this for elites for defense and wrath generation.
    • Laws Of Valor - Unstoppable Force:Used to to reduce wrath for Heavens Fury.
    • Steed Charge - Endurance:Mobility

    Passives:

    • Finery:DPS / Armor buff
    • Righteousness:Wrath Generation and +max wrath for extending the period between health globe's for potential Reapers Wraps returns.
    • Long arm of the Law:Increase our up time for Laws of Valor.
    • Heavenly Strength:God mode...allows us to use a 2h as a 1h.

    Strengths VS Weakness's:

    Huge damage. High gear requirement, constantly juggling between wrath generation can feel awkward in groups.







    Torment 4-5

    For Torment 4-5 we are running the full Heavens Fury build, Stacking high cooldown reduction but I did not maximize it. I feel adding more cooldown reduction after a certain point is wasteful compared to alternative gear / slot choices e.g. Captains set can be replaced for Harrington.

    Build:http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/crusader#lYdQfV!gdaS!cbcYYY


    Skills:

    • Heavens Fury - Fires Of Heaven:Our main DPS skill.
    • Provoke - Hit Me:Used to generate wrath during Akarat's Champion down time.
    • Akarat's Champion- Prophet: Try and keep this permanantly up.
    • Laws Of Valor - Unstoppable Force:Try and keep this permanantly up.
    • Steed Charge - Endurance:Mobility
    • Shield Glare - Zealous Glare: Used to generate wrath during Akarat's Champion down time.

    Passives:

    • Finery:DPS / Armor buff
    • Indestructible:+1 life / anti DC.
    • Long arm of the Law:Increase our up time for Laws of Valor.
    • Heavenly Strength:God mode...allows us to use a 2h as a 1h.

    Strengths VS Weakness's:

    Huge damage. High gear requirement, allot of crusaders run the same build....but what class isn't like this.



    Conclusion:

    Its great to have a character that can efficiently farm blood shards without the need of Rift it Forward. I've been using my crusader to gear every class and would recommend making one as a back up or main to use when re-gearing your fallen hero's.

    posted a message on 2.0.5 New Monk Bell Build (Fire Monk & Movement Speed)
    Quote from Christonya
    The biggest issue with this build.. Is your doing quite literally half the damage you'd be doing if you used LTK.

    Your bell does around 11 damage per spirit spent, where as LTK vulture claw kick does 20 damage per spirit spent.
    Ya the dmg is no where near as high as LTK. This build is really designed for lower torments taking advantage of the AoE and movement speed buffs to clear very quickly to make up for the dps loss.
