@Han003: Your amulet is shit but you already know that I think CC/CD/socket/ mainstat or %holy is what you should aim for. I prefer CDR in my helm for a higher uptime on Epiphany which results in better survivability. Try farming a better RoRG, with the increase in droprate a dex/as/CC-CD/socket isn't that hard to get. Double unity and 3 pieces of SWK in seasons is really lucky btw.
I'm kind of just looking for suggestions on where to go from here. Currently set up as lightning, I do have a few Sunwuko pieces in my storage and was wondering if I should just go 2H if I'm looking to progress.
So I can hang in T6 on my monk if I swap 'Seize the Initiative' for Harmony but the DPS is kind of low. I can more or less breeze through T5 though.
ATM, I'm just farming and hoping for decent ring drops and a WKL. I'll probably look to replace my current RoRG as well.
Quoting this because I'd still like some help.
ATM, I have 118% increased lightning damage. Just biding my time and trying to farm a WKL or better TF/EOTS
The spec and gear there seems to be from my T6 runs, so assume Beacon instead of Transcendence and Mantra of Healing with Heavenly Body or Time of Need, and Unity ring (416dex, 5,5% crit and 15% elite dmg) with lvl27 Gogok instead of the Wyrdward. Besides the gear I have on I have Eye of Peshkov 635 Dex, 738 Vit, rolled 6% crit and socket (with Diamond in it) and Sunwuko ammy with 696 Dex, 6% IAS, 6% CDR and rolled 99% Crit dmg. I have also another FD that is close to identical exept that it has 6% IAS instead of the Vit. It even has the same 10% dmg rolled into it as the one I have equipped. I don't have any replacement boots, so the Crudest Boots stay on even when I don't use Mystic Ally.
The problem I have is not having enough damage to comfortably do grift 33 and thus having to push the speed which gets me killed to lightning or reflect damage mobs. I've tried running the Peshkov + Swk ammy setup using BoH - IwL instead of Mystic Ally, but I feel that even if the damage with similar power lvl items might be better, the Swk ammy loses to the Holy Beacon too much. On sheet the Holy Beacon is 10% dmg upgrade and that doesn't even include the 18% holy damage. So I've been trying Mystic Ally - Fire and Air, and can't really decide between the two. Fire is straight out 20% dmg increase, but the spirit I get from Air activation feels pretty nifty when facing a elite pack requiring constant heal aura spam. I'm using the FD with Vit because with the other one, I'll be down to 295k hp, which is probably too low. I feel that my own thoughts keep running in circles, so thought to try if someone might have some input. Any comments based on your own experience would be really helpful.
Currently I farm T6 without any problems, so I do with grift lvl 30. Aiming for 36+
I did some successful runs tier 32, but mostly I die there in 1 second on any elite pack with my cooldown popped up. According to my damage I think I could run 36 tier, but I can't stand a white mob even on 34 tier.
Now my problem is that, I'm having a difficult time staying alive for some reason, yes, I have the damage but whenever I'm fighting an elite pack, I really can't deal with them unless I have all my CDs up and pop everything, even then I sometimes get killed.
So what am I missing? For example before the expansion I played a barbarian, and in order to run Inferno 6+, it was required to have 6% lifesteal (3% from passive and 3% immortal belt) in order to keep myself alive, if I didn't had that, it was pointless.
So am I missing something similar here? like, life per hit? or life per spirit spent? the legendary gems maybe? what is the problem? Resistances to low? armor too low? how can I sustain my HP during a fight?
Both voidlol and Mxy: Unity is pretty much required from GR32 upwards for monk. For me reforging 10% dmg (that I had rolled into the weapon) into LoH did the trick, and I instantly went up from grift 32 to 34-35. Haven't cleared 35 in time yet, but I'm getting there. Now I'm mostly lacking damage due to having pretty mediocre rolls on my FD. I'd have a better one dps-wise in stash, but apparently you can't have LoH and life from monster kills on a same weapon, and the other FD happened to come with the latter.
Currently pushing GR33 season with the Holy FD build - i'm a bit at a loss at to what to aim for with my gear now. I have a bad Peshkov, but no usable Sunwuko amulet, so staying away from Breath of Heaven change to build.
Apart from upping my few Emeralds and the legendary gems, and hoping for higher stat rolls on the gear I have, I don't see many options to improve further, which is kind of frustrating because i'm already having a tough time DPS-wise at GR32, at least in moderate density ones. GR33/34 will be real nailbiters. I could possibly switch to a Diamond in the head slot and switch Sixth Sense for Beacon of Ytar, which might possibly get me pretty constant Desert Shroud, but I would likely have a few seconds of downtime in between, meaning i'll be fodder for elemental attacks.
Spending shards on trying to get Frostburns/Rimeheart for a frost build in the meantime.
I'm using a total of 4 different set bonuses to clear rifts:
1. 4-pc Inna's (Reach / Legs / Belt)
2. 4-pc Sunwo's (Helm, Glvoes, Shoulders)
3. 3-pc Aug's (Chest, Bracers)
4. 3-pc Blackthorne's (Boots, Amulet)
Items I have that I could eventually use:
a) Eye of Peshkov (Crit 5% / Socket / 42% CDR / 361 LPSS)
Depth Diggers (446 Agi / 479 Vit / 93 AR / 96% dmg to primary generator)
c) Crudest Boots (497 Agi / 460+ Vit / 12% Mov Speed / Wave of Light dmg)
Really lost whether I should go for Crudest + Depth Diggers and lose 3-pc Aug's and 3-PC Blackthorne's (got a decent Inna's Chest I can use to retain my Inna's + Sunwo's).
Have had the worst luck though in terms of other items - Nearly Paragon 240 and I still haven't seen a single Unity, Flying Dragon, Sunwo's Shines, or Rama's Gift.
- Lacking damage, unsure what to prioritize, feeling current build isn't very fun. Generally prefer Way of Hundred Fists, hard hitters like Wave of Light or Seven-sided strike and mobility in Dashing Strike.
Came back after about 2-3 months hiatus, looking to upgrade and try something new!
Just recently got 3 pieces of the Sunwuko set, and not quite sure where to go now
I currently feel like my damage is quite bad, and that my spirit regen isn't enough, so any tips are appreciated
First your skills: Exalted soul is worthless, get sieze the initiative instead. Replace the sixth sence with beacon of ytar.
Gear: Your rolls on pretty much everything are quite bad.
1) Amulet - do you have any other nicely rolled amulet with crit + crit damage + dex/holy damage + socket? If yes spend shards for helm, get nicely rolled sunwoko helm (they are quite easy to get) + additionaly you can get nice eye of peshkov (the one you have is not very good)
2) Shoulders - get ones with dex + vit + CDR, you are missing 8% CDR here
3) Gloves - it would be better to have attack speed instead of vitality but its not that big deal, especialy on high grifts the HP comes handy. Leave gloves for now
4) Rings - your Unity is ok, missing secondary res is bad, but you can live without it for now, better one will drop. Your RotRG is bad, farm T6 split farm for better ring
5) Belt - is OK for now, in time you can spend shard for witching hour (but it can take ages).
6) Boots - iceclimbers would be better ofcourse, but for now you can live with those.
7) Flying dragon is good. Reroll socket to 10% damage or life per spirit spend when you get ramaladis gift
8) Craft better chest and bracers - both are not very well rolled.
Do you have any decent Blackthore boots/belt? The set is quite good. If you have boots, gamble belt. If you have belt. Gamble boots. If lucky, maybe witching hour/ice climbers will drop. Or you can craft crimsons set.
~1175resis to all on avg (with MoH, i cant survive T6 w/out it)
about 50% of the time Solo, other times its 1-3 other people
Currently farming T6 (slow as hell though)
WANTING to farm T6 fast, and start moving up the grifts
Just picked up my FD and SWK ammy yesterday to complete my set, as well as a 2nd unity ring, and a "follower can't die" relic for my little buddy. I can't tell you how anti climatic, borderline depressing, it was for me once i picked up that last piece of gear and tried a solo rift. I was like "fuck yeah! lets go steamroll T6 rifts!" only to find that, yes, i was killing them faster than I was before, but not as fast as i had hoped.
After playing with the build more, and getting used to the rotation, I've started killing mobs alot quicker, but not enough to satisfy me SO, I decided I would come here to the Sanctuary
This character is made purely as a zDPS monk for groups. I have no interest in soloing on it.
I would like to be able to take it as high as possible in group greater rifts.
How much is having so much intelligence on my gear hurting me? With perma-serenity (achievable with Mystic + Gogok and current gear) the survivability loss doesn't seem particularly important, and since it's a zDPS the damage loss also shouldn't matter. Am I missing something, or is mainstat just unimportant for this build once the CDR goal is achieved?
Gear wise, what should I fine-tune or swap out? I'm looking for a (cold) Sledge Fist, 30% Strongarm, and better Leoric's, but what else? I find it difficult to determine which rolls actually matter for this build.
GR 29 depending on mobs and density, and this is where I've hit a wall. Trash takes too long to kill and rift bosses are too hard.
So, the question is, is this a gear check or a reality check... I know my FD sucks, but I've got a Rama's gift that's just waiting around for one with better stats. Got one Unity but still no Templar relic. Currently farming shards to gamble for Ice Climbers, Depth Diggers and EoP. Is this the right way to go? I feel like these items are "a must" to reach higher tiers? I've got a Leoric's Crown that I was planning on using, but then I'd have to repace my amulet for the Shines which rolled terribly. And I've really gotten used to using those laser beams as a source of healing.
Run recently through GRifts at 28-29ish. Gears better than before, switched away from a lightning build to this and it feels better but I feel like I'm at a wall atm.
My FD has a rolled socket which WILL come off for 10% damage (I guess) and a gift added eventually.
I did have 4 piece bonus Inna's and 4 piece SWK bonus running but toughness was very low, so I switcvhed it up to this gear I had in stash and toughness greatly improved and damage is decent but could be better.
Just looking for improvements to look for in gear I guess. Skills should be decently set up.
