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 competitive group greater rift laddering & XP farming.

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:

  • Use Breath of heaven on CD
  • Use Dash on a monster every 4 seconds
  • Apply/Maintain static Discharge debuff on monsters with FoT
  • Attack with WoTF during static discharge debuff (only in AoE, otherwise just attack with FoT)
  • Use serenity when required
Skill variations:

  • Mystic Ally - Air Ally (it procs static charge quite a lot, best for max DPS - if playing with a SWK monk that already has transgression)
  • Mystic Ally - Earth Ally (if you are having trouble surviving - if playing with a SWK monk that already has transgression)
  • Serenity - Unwelcome Disturbance (it procs static charge quite alot, best for max DPS)
  • Epiphany - Desert Shroud (if you don't like serenity)
Legendary Gem variations:

  • Pain Enhancer - Swap out Bane of the stricken if you are skipping RG's or Playing with a Dart WD or playing Non-season.
Hellfire Passive/Passive variations in order of power:

  • Exalted Soul (Max DPS)
  • Near Death Experience (not recommended, good for HC)

Stat Priority:

  • Helm: Socket>30% Lightning>Crit
  • Shoulders: CDR
  • Torso: x3 Sockets>15% Life
  • Legs: x2 Sockets
  • Gloves: Crit>CHD>Vit
  • Rings: Socket>AtkSpd>Crit>Dmg Range>CHD
  • Waist: 15% Life>15% FoT Dmg
  • Wrist: 20% Lightning damage>Crit

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

People WITHOUT shenlongs fists:

Do not attempt the build without shenlongs set (you will do virtually no damage)
