Hey boyz!

In my opinion/experience this build is currently the strongest possible monk setup for pushing the highest SOLO GR on a monk!

This build is trash for T10-13 Speed farming, for a speed build check: http://www.diablofans.com/builds/82237-ltk-monk-t11-13-speed

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 meta! so be sure to check back, and vote on the guide!


Basic game-play strategy:

  • Dash every 4-6 seconds for the R6 Damage buff
  • Cyclone every 5 seconds for 50% damage reduction (Pull monsters to templars Oculus Ring circles)
  • Use Breath of Heaven on cooldown (when in combat)
  • Use Epiphany on cooldown vs any dangerous monsters (almost everything)
  • Hold down Crippling Wave
Important tips:

  • You want to have +Max Spirit (secondary) on both weapons & paragon!
  • You want to have secondary resist everywhere possible, or else your Harmony won't do anything!
  • This build is very squishy, and you need to dodge almost every avoidable "BIG" hit.

Skill variations:

  • Dashing Strike - Radiance (for slightly more dmg output but HUGE eHP loss)
  • Inner Sanctuary - Temple of Protection (replace MoS - Need heavy CDR, Good for Epiphany downtime)
  • WoHF - Fists of Fury (replace Mangle - Holy damage setup, Slightly worse IMO)

Legendary Gem variations:

  • N/A

Kanai's cube variations:

  • Lefebvre's Soliloquy - Subpar setup (if you have good Depth Diggers & Bad Lefebvre's Soliloquy!)

Hellfire Passive/Alternative setups:

  • Near death experience (for HC players)

FAQ:

Q: Why do i die all the time?

A: Harmony optimisation needs to very good, and this build is inherently squishy.
