Build Guide

Quin69 here!
>>>Patch 2.3 Guide<<<

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.

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 Cyclone strike to maintain focus+restraint buff
  • Use breath of heaven on cooldown (when in combat)
  • Use inner sanctuary on cooldown (when in combat)
  • Use Epiphany on cooldown
  • Use mantra active when you are taking alot damage
  • Use the Epiphany teleport for mobility
Skill variations:

  • Cyclone Strike - Implosion (Use with Strongarm Bracers)
  • Dashing Strike - Blinding Speed (Replace inner sanctuary)
Legendary Gem variations:

  • Bane of the stricken - Swap out Gogok of Swiftness for max DPS setup OR Simplicity's Strength if you want to keep survivability and gain single target.
  • Pain enhancer - Swap out Simplicity's Strength for a slightly higher damage setup if you can average 11+ Targets (god rifts).

Hellfire Passive:

  • Exalted Soul
  • Near Death experience(hardcore)

When playing in a group:

  • Swap Unity for Convention of elements

Stat Priority:

  • Helm: Socket>Crit
  • Shoulders: CDR>20% AE Dmg
  • Torso: x3 Sockets>20% Fire
  • Legs: x2 Sockets
  • Gloves: CDR>ChC>20% AE Dmg>CHD
  • Rings: Socket>CDR>Crit>20% AE Dmg>CHD
  • Waist: 15% Life
  • Wrist: 20% Fire damage>ChC
  • Amulet: Socket>ChD>ChC>20% Fire=Dex
  • Weapon: CDR > LPH > AE DMG > Vit

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

People WITHOUT shenlong's fists:

Do not attempt the build without the shenlong's set!
