Invis' Need for Speed RoS Monk Build
Long time Monk strategist invis has a preview of a build he has been working on in the Reaper of Souls Beta. Currently the build looks pretty overpowered, but we'll let you decide. The highlight of the build are the gloves that let you keep shrine effects for a full hour.
Small update: The name of the build looks to might have been taken from the streamer zisss, though he uses it for his Wizard build. Invis is sorry for borrowing the name.
More Teasing: "Awesome" Weeks Ahead
After Grimiku's mention of the PTR coming"Soon" a lot of people requested a more detailed explanation. Today Vaeflare decided to put the fire out, but instead fed everyone's curiousity even more.
Grimiku has now posted twice in a short period of time mentioning this. I know it's Blizzard but this got my hopes up that it could be sometime this week...maybe even within the next 24 hours. I'll probably be kicking myself for getting so excited =/
We're glad you're so excited to test out what's coming in Patch 2.0.1.
I don't have a date to offer you for either the Closed Beta for Reaper of Souls (if you haven't opted-in yet, you can do so here), or the upcoming PTR for Patch 2.0.1, so you';ll have to wait a little longer yet. But hang in there, because the weeks and months ahead are going to be awesome.

Curse Weekly Roundup
On this week's Curse Roundup: Lindsay Lohan sues Rockstar Games, Steam reaches new record numbers of users, Ghostcrawler leaves Blizzard, and more.
Those gloves are a tad OP I agree, but that 0CD build he's running doesn't actually need them.
I've watched a different video of a monk with that helm (which IS needed I believe) and then just -CD% on legendaries. He was able to get to 0CD on BoH without the shrine effect. I believe the legendary should just increase the radius, and maybe a 10-15% CD reduction, MAYBE. I mean, a free to cast no CD huge nuke of a spell that also heals is OP.
This build name is from a streamer called Zisss. Shame on you. Same going for the trick with shrines.
Shrines don't make this powerful, the synergy of monk skills for damage with movement, with the legendary that gives more damage during movement, coupled with skill reduction, and the legendary helm make this work. Not shrines. That's just a cheesey bonus.
Just to update some more info here, I already pre-seen that the gloves will be nerf and have a few backup builds that is equally fast without any of the shrines. And yes, with decent CD reduction, i can still spam breath of heaven. My point in the video should be pretty clear, the CD mechanic needs to be re-think, and breath of heaven doing both damage and healing at same time in a 50 yards that also travels through walls with no spirits cost just seems too over power to me.
If it is overpowered. It will get nerfed. This is a really early beta. 90% of the numbers you see in the game now will be reduced and fixed by the time it goes closed beta. And continued to be tuned til the release of the game. Not one build that is OP now will be on release.
