The item build is focused on using Wave of light at a distance and grouping enemies together to AOE them down. This is the reason we are using anything items and gems that can increase the dmg of it.

Another focus of this build is being able to survive at least a couple of hits, and if we do get in a situation where you might've died you have the Skeleton king shoulders and Near death experience to save you from getting killed.

A lot of the skills are focused on spirit regen since we aren't using any primary skills that build spirit. This is the reason for Sweep Wing Inner Storm and Mystic Ally: Air. Kyoshiro's soul helps keep sweeping wind permanently up and allows you to follow on other priorities like dodging frozen, arcane enchant, mortars etc.

The other two skills are basically being used to buff your dmg when you get a good group of mobs together.

Build Guide

This is my first guide hopefully it will be helpful to someone. This guide is to help people complete the conquest achievement "The Thrill", for the seasonal challenges with the Monk class.
