Build Guide

Quin69 here!

>>>UPDATED FOR 2.2<<<


Hey boyz! Season One & Two - Rank 1 monk (world) here!

In my opinion/experience this build is currently one of the strongest possible monk setups for solo competitive greater rift laddering (season 3).

Please note: I always keep my diablo fans guides up to date and will be making adjustments to the guide whenever there is a shift in endgame meta! so be sure to check back, and vote on the guide!

Basic game-play strategy:

  • Hold down spirit generator
  • Use breath of heaven on cooldown (when in combat)
  • Use inner sanctuary on cooldown (when in combat)
  • Use Epiphany on cooldown
  • Drop spirit as needed with dashing strike (don't spam - because you will waste the charges and lose dps)
Skill variations:

  • Fists of Thunder - Wind Blast (For use with APD Bracers)
  • Crippling Wave - Tsunami (For use with APD Bracers, less DPS ~ more survivability)

Passive variations(+hellfire bonus): 

  • Alacrity
  • Guardians Path

Stat Priority:

  • Helm: Socket>Crit
  • Shoulders: 15% Dash Damage>RCR>CDR
  • Torso: x3 Sockets>15% Dash Damage>30% RCR>20% Fire
  • Legs: x2 Sockets
  • Gloves: ChC>RCR>CHD
  • Rings: Socket>RCR>Crit>IAS>CDR
  • Waist: 15% Life
  • Wrist: 20% Fire damage>ChC
  • Amulet: Socket>ChD>ChC=20% Fire>Dex
  • Weapon: LPH > LPSS > RCR > Vit

you want dex/secondary resist on all your pieces(where possible)

People WITHOUT flying dragon: 

Furnace is OK. But the build is heavily reliant on a flying dragon.


Q: Why am i getting instantly killed g45+?

A: This spec is extremly fragile, and you will die... Alot (with bad mobs). 1200+ All resistance | 16,000+ Armour | 500,000+ Health - Is a good amount to be around.

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: Emeralds, Moarrrr DMG!

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

Q: What procs APD's?
A: Freeze = Stun.
