Build Guide

Quin69 here!

>>>Patch 2.1.2<<<


In my opinion/experience this build is currently the strongest possible monk setup for t6 speed farming.
This build is not optimized for Greater rits! if you want a build for pushing ladders check out my other >>guide<<
0:59 Second T6 Clear with this build: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ja4oBPXUiU4

Mandatory gems:
Boon of the hoarder

Basic game-play strategy:
- Maintain 100% up-time on sweeping wind
- Wave of light for damage
- Maintain your spirit with mystic ally on use and Epiphany
- Dash for mobility

Passive variations:
Harmony (if you don't have a boon of the hoarder yet or play HC)
Near Death Experience (if you don't have a boon of the hoarder yet or play HC)

Stat Priority:
Helm: Socket>Crit
Shoulders: CDR
Torso: x3 Sockets>11% Elite damage reduction (secondary: 7% Melee dmg reduction)
Legs: x2 Sockets
Gloves: ChC>CDR>ChD>IAS
Rings: Socket>30% Elite>20% Fire>ChD>ChC>IAS
Waist: ChD>IAS
Wrist: 20% Fire>ChC (secondary: 7% Melee dmg reduction)
Amulet: Socket>ChD>ChC=20% Fire
Weapon: 10% Damage > Spirit regen > LPSS > LoH.

you want dex/secondary resist on all your pieces(where possible) & health globe bonus ownz for Mantra of healing/transcendence.

People WITHOUT flying torch:
Just use any two handed weapon with the highest DPS/Healing. (note: you will have to get more spirit regen or RCR)


Q: Why am i getting instantly killed g33+?
A: You need Unity equipped, and Unity on your active follower(with a "follower cannot die" relic)
Also! 1000+ All resistance | 16,000+ Armour | 350,000+ Health - Is a good amount to be around.

Q: Does the sunwuko 2 set scale with elemental damage?
A: Yes, the 1000% weapon damage proc grabs your highest elemental damage % then modifies the proc accordingly (all item damage cannot proc area damage)

Q: What gem should i put in my helmet socket?
A: Diamond. CDR = Dmg + Survivability!

Q: What normal gems should i put in my chest/pants?
A: Diamonds until your all resistance is over 800, Then the rest emeralds(dex gems).

Q: What follower should i use?
A: Templar. Why? Inspire (x1.1 ALL spirit generation)
