***UPDATE*** I've updated the build guide and dropped Mantra of Healing - Circular Breathing (7 Spirit per second lost - 3 Spirit from rune/4 Spirit from Chant of Resonance passive) or you could drop Mystic Ally - Air Ally (which is 8 Spirit per second + active ability for extra 100 spirit, if you drop this you should wear Illusory Boots instead). In its place I've selected Wave of Light - Explosive Light (you can use any rune really, it's there just as burst damage and additional resource reduction from Cindercoat). I've also added the supporting items in Kyoshiro's Blade weapon, Pinto's Pride bracers and CIndercoat Armour to help out with bursting the elites. Be sure to still gather up the trash monsters by walking around in cirlces then spamming Cyclone Strike and when you encounter Elites, use one or two Wave of Lights to kill it (make sure not to spam this skill so you don't risk losing all of your Sweeping Wind stacks!). I'm not really playing Monk this season so I can't really test this without finding the right gear, so I'd love to hear if this is easier/harder than my old build.


The Sunwuko Set Dungeon was another fairly simple one to complete, and I think I overgeared too much for this. The way I've tackled it above is to gear up for as much Cooldown Reduction/Spirit Generation/Resource Cost Reduction as possible, with Cooldown Reduction being the highest priority so you can Dash/Epiphany as much as possible. Kyoshiro's Soul belt and Vengeful Wind are core to completing this Set Dungeon efficiently, so it is highly recommended to farm these two items if you don't have them already. Cyclone Strike is the key to grouping up monsters, which will also spawn the Decoys required to complete the objective. You should have more than enough damage from the Decoys spawned since you should have 10 Sweeping Wind stacks always.


Notes:


The way I approached this particular Set Dungeon was to make sure at least 1 or 2 of the Decoys hitting 20 enemies within 6 seconds objective requirements were completed within the 30 seconds or so. If you haven't gotten at least one by that stage, I recommend restarting the dungeon.


When you reach the first 4 way intersection, LEAVE THE SOUTH-WEST ROUTE FOR LAST. On my first run, I chose the South-West route, which is a very long dead end. I recommend going North-East then looping around, see the video for the path I took.


I have deliberately not selected a skill for use with the 6 Set Bonus so that I wouldn't have to worry about running out of Sweeping Wind stacks. (This only applies to my old build with no Wave of Light).

Build Guide

Welcome to my Set Dungeons Build Guides!


You can find general Set Dungeon information and Set Dungeon guides for the other classes at my Set Dungeon Thread.


This build focuses on the Sunwuko Set for the Monk.


Requirements for Mastery

  • Kill all monsters without taking fatal damage.
  • Maintain Sweeping Wind for the duration of the dungeon.
  • Use your Decoys to hit 20 different enemies in 6 seconds, 5 times.

Location: Act 4, Pinnacle of Heaven. This portal spawns in the Pinnacle of Heaven, which is the small area before you start the Diablo boss fight. So you have to go to the Act 4 Waypoint - Silver Spires Level 2, then look for the Diablo exit.
