Build Guide

Hello, DatModz here! Introducing the Season 16 Sunwuko Wave of Light Monk Build. This is a well rounded Solo Pushing/Group Build that works well past Great Rift 120!

Basic Overview

  • Maintain your Sweeping Winds buff at 10 stacks, if you are traveling between rifts or waiting for a Rift Guardian to spawn, give the keybind a little tap before it falls off so you don't have to restack.
  • Use Mystic Ally when you are almost out of spirit
  • On your Vengeful Wind(Weapon) make sure you have one that grants 7 stacks of Sweeping Winds; most of the time a non ancient 7 stack weapon is better than a 6 stack ancient
  • When your Convention of Elements gets close to your Fire Rotation, make sure to stand in a Oculus ring circle granted by your Templar for MAX DPS
  • Use Dashing Strike to gain 40% dodge defensively and to stand in the Oculus Ring Circles granted by your Templar
  • Epiphany on cooldown, be careful since you could have downtime, stay at ranged and use Wave of Light(Slow Effect Granted by your Pinto's Pride Bracers) to create distance between you and the monsters(You are kinda squishy when its down and susceptible to Crowd Control Effects)
  • Preferred Stacking Resist: Physical & Fire
  • Caldesann's Despair AKA Augments: I recommend going as high as possible 100+ is very easy to achieve this season, each level grants +5 main stat or a level 100 Augment
  • The most efficient way to get full Ancient Weapons/Rings/Amulets with ideal stats is using the Kanai Cube Recipe called "Law of Kulle" which allows you to reforge a legendary, it can even turn into a Primal Ancient! *Requires bounties*
