After over a decade of bringing you the latest Diablo news and builds, DiabloFans will be shutting down on March 21st, 2019. On this date, we will archive the site in an effort to preserve the history. Thanks for your patronage throughout the years.
There's the changes I would make, that would make you a bit more useful. The thing is that being a support character will only be useful if you are playing with the same people consistently. As then they can tune their builds to compensate for your weaknesses. With this build, you will be a bit more competitive with damage, and also have a good amount of support.
You could change the rune in cyclone strike to alabaster if the healing wasn't as needed so you had a better chance of surviving when you used it. But for this build it's not going to be a main use ability, but something for oh shit moments when you need to pull enemies off of others, and deliver a good heal as well.
You'll notice that there is no runestone in fists of thunder, this is because the one I would have picked, is not a runestone available in the calculator, but is a different one available in the new system. This makes me question how many of these same runestones will be available, but we'll have to wait til they update the skill calculator with the new system. Even in the beta you can't see the Skill Runes available for skills you haven't unlocked yet, which is a bit annoying, so it's hard to tell. But this build will be a good starting place. If any of the classes will be a good support character though it's the Monk for sure, the WD is a good choice as well, but if you like the Monk, then it's a moot point.
Hope I helped, it's a bit early still to tell for sure since the new skill system hasn't been updated on the site, but while some of the other runes are likely to change, there will likely be options close to the ones I chose. Another note, I wanted to keep this short so I didn't go too in depth about the changes I made, but I can explain it more if you'd like.
