First priority is to move quickly. Use fleet footed, paragon points, and wreath of lightning for base speed increase. The rest is triggered from tempest rush (quicksilver), killing enemies (mantra), and item destruction (Warzechian).

Next priority is to kill as much as possible. Summoning the rift guardian is mostly about killing elites, so we build stacks and speed by slaughtering our way through trash mobs, and get extra elites from shrines. Shrines also provide significant boosts, so using flavor of time to extend those buffs. Basically, it's tempest rush with increased attack speed and area damage. Augment with crit damage, and let the Daibo of Balance worry about triggering crits.

Profit. Usual tricks with gold generation and pickup to get gold and increase armor. Also uses Cain's Destiny to pick up extra Death's Breath, and swap to Cain's Destiny for extra greater rift keys when you summon the rift guardian.

Build Guide

[WIP] The goal of this build is to grind as lazily as possible for rift keys, gold, and mats. Still fiddling with stat priorities.

Summoning the rift guardian: Be truly lazy. Right click and tempest rush through everything and watch them fall over. Using dashing strike to skip past areas with no mobs. This is meant for speed not pushing, just run through everything until you get to a shrine or elite pack, then keep on using tempest rush to flatten them.

Rift Guardian: When summoned, swap out Cain's Destiny for Sage's Journey for extra rift keys. The build currently doesn't have good burst potential, but lashing tail kick's stun will help interrupt the guardian until it falls over. Collect the loot and repeat.

To keep tempest rush up, you will need sufficient spirit regen to support your attack speed. This largely relies on keeping epiphany up for spirit regen and augmented with the air ally. Unlike most builds, keeping epiphany 100% up is not needed, although the extra damage reduction is a nice bonus. This is especially the case if you hit a speed shrine which will have a big increase on your attack speed, and by extension your spirit consumption.
