2.1.2 lets GUNGDO GEAR apply EP to all nearby enemies when enemy with EP dies, so you tag a few mobs with it and then kill with WoL, this produces a chain reaction that literally melts everything on screen, whilst the build works without Gundo Gear, once you have them the difference in just amazing :)

Diamond Gem in helm (best cdr boost you can get) and Diamond in other armor slots until over 800 resistance then use Emeralds

Sweeping Wind spam + Resource Reduction (your resource reductions must be 6.6% maximum to allow SW to proc Taeguk Gem) use the numpad trick to continually spam SW (keybind numpad 8 (or whatever number you want) to SW, then hold down key and turn off numlock = perma SW spam = perma taeguk stacks)

CDR... with Diamond in Helm, CDR rolled on Shoulder and 1 other item you will reach 50% easily which is enough, this powers

Mystic Ally to replenish 200 spirit ( 2 allies 2x spirit regen and spirit on activate) Epiphany for -50% damage Blinding flash for +29% dmg boost (or spirit regen if choosing Replenishing Light)

Legendary Gems: BotT & Taeguk definitely BiS, currently running with Mirinae as it is proccing EP like a god :)

Uti:: RCR must NOT go above 6.6%, this is to keep perma taeguk stacks (SW costs 1 spirit @ 6.6rcr) then LoH is priority!
