Build Guide>> 2-4 Man only - - - This build is only for greater rifts G30-40+ - - - It is pretty pointless in Torment 1-6/g1-30 <<
This build is not for beginners, and is specifically designed for group play
For those of you who don't know me i am a massive nerd and have been playing the 2.1 PTR religiously since its been up.
Speaking as a monk with multiple rank 1 titles for every season of the PTR, This has given me some insight into what builds work for higher GR's and builds that don't.
Legendary gems used:
Gorok of Swiftness (required)
Gem of Efficacious Toxin (10% Party buff)
Zei's Stone of Vengeance (20% stun)
Amazing thing about this spec:
135% Uptime on Epiphany (~4 sec overlap)
162% Uptime on Inner Sanc (~2.3 sec overlap)
>>108% Uptime<< on Serenity: Ascension (~.31 sec overlap) <--- Immortality
*values with max 81.55% CDR*
Basic game-play strategy:
Spam your serenity for near invulnerability (small downtime after first serenity before your gem has stacked to 15% CDR) - then run ahead grouping the mobs ~ pulling them into a good position for your buddies so they can kill them from a safe distance, then damage amp the mobs (by up to 146%)!
Mantra of conviction - Overawe (more group damage, less control)
Mantra of salvation - Agility (less group damage, small group buff)
Epiphany - Insight (if you have a xephirian amulet and a good internet connection)
Cyclone strike - Wall of wind (more crowd control, smaller pull radius)
Passive variations(+hellfire bonus):
Resolve (less personal survivability, small group buff)
Unity (small group buff, only viable if using MoC)
Exalted Soul (helps with spirit regen when using desert shroud)
Helm: Socket=Leoric Crown %>Vit
Torso: x3 Sockets>11% Elite damage reduction (secondary: 7% Melee dmg reduction)
Legs: x2 Sockets
Waist: CDR>15% Health
Wrist: 30% Strong arm Roll>Vit (secondary: 7% Melee dmg reduction)
Amulet: CDR>Socket>18% Life>Vit
You want secondary resist on all your pieces(where possible).
Paragon Point priority:
Core: Cap Movement speed>Vit
Defense: Armour>All Res>Life>LPS
You need MAX rolled CDR on, Ring x2, Necklace, Gloves, Shoulders, Belt, Helmet(gem), Weapons x2. You should end up with 81.55% CDR(including gem stacks + paragons).
