    • Bane of the Trapped
    • Moratorium

Kanai's Cube

  • The Fist of Az'Turrasq
  • Leoric's Crown
  • Convention of Elements

You use the Sunwuko's Set to buff up your EP damage.

2 set Uliana to apply EPs to a lot of things with your spender,

Gungdo gear is amazing for spreading your EPs.

String of Ears so mobs dont beat us down while we are applying our EPs.

Crudest boots so you get 20% damage from your fire ally.

The furnace because it has high damage + damage against elites which is what will be slowing you down if anything.

Fist of Az in cube because we rely on EP damage and that thing doubles it.

Leoric's Crown for that sweet xp, if you're dying too much you could go for Spirit Guards.

Convention of Elements is a multiplier of 200% and Quin loves mulipliers only downside is that it rotates away from cold.

Bane of the powerful so we blow up elites and rare packs easier + the buff will be up most of the time. If you go speed farming in 70+ you won't be killing the elites and you should go for either Iceblink or Zei's Stone of Vengeance.

Bane of the Trapped is a sweet multiplier that procs itself.

Moratorium is another prevention against getting oneshot to protect your pools of reflection.

Paragon Priorities


Movement Speed
Primary Stat
Maximum Resource


Critical Hit Damage
Critical Hit Chance
Cooldown Reduction
Attack Speed


Resist All
Life Regeneration


Area Damage
Resource Cost Reduction
Life on Hit
Gold Find

In core you want to get movement speed until you hit 25% total from paragon points and gear, the rest into dex.

In offense you want crit hit damage or crit hit chance, it depends on what you already have but you should aim for 10 times more CHD than CHC for example 10% crit chance and 100% crit damage, CDR and AS not really important.

In Defense you want all resist, life regen, armor and life.

In utility you want Area damage, RCR, life on hit and gold find.

Build Guide

I just copied this from Quin69 because people kept asking him so I thought I'd give him something simple to link to but it basically evolves around making big fat EPs that others blow up

This build is group only and does not work for solo play

The build is basically about putting EPs on mobs and let others blow them up. You really want a healer monk with this setup, otherwise you'll snap like a twig. You also need someone to set off your EPs because you have no single target damage. You want to keep up your focus and restraint with Crippling Wave and Tempest Rush. Quin uses Tempest Rush because it allows mobility in his spender over cyclone strike where you have to stand still. The Transgression rune in your mantra assumes you have a barbarian that can benifit from the AS buff.

The youtube link is to Quin's Video Guide on the build.

I'll take it down if he asks me to
