Diablo® III

FUN CLUB OF ZDS MONK

the first, thanks for Vox's Thread about ZDS Monk

this build is very fun for playing especially for buff group, this is my ZDS Monk :

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/N1K0-1135/hero/37383418 (still need upgrade Gears)

elite kills : 1,833 (almost my friends invite my ZDS Monk when they farming mp 10 in group)

what is profits become a member? NOTHING, U JUST HAVE ALOTS FRIENDS WHEN THEY NEED FARMING DE, KEYS ,XP and UBERS :-)

AS THE FIRST MEMBER, OF COURSE : VOX'S ZDS MONK (if you do not mind, Vox) :

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Vox-1186/hero/22827334 (Grazy dagger for ZDS Monk)

I wish how have ZDS's Monk can show his profile ZDS's Monk, so we can learn each about how to match skill and gears. Appreciate and thanks.

Have a Nice Day

Hi N1K0,

Petalonyx more likely to have the good stuff on.

Renkha has only my backup, stacked CC redux gear. It's functional, but was only an experiment that I haven't retired :)

Hey fellas, not once have I thought of making a Monk till i saw a 10k dps #1 stunna the other day. I just want to start off and say I have zero knowledge about this build other than that it has a high chance of stun, high hp, and high loh.

Id like to make one today and any tips on gear or any kind of help would be great.
FYI, I mainly roll with a barb.
thanks in advance

Yep, that was me! Running an Arcane Orb wiz. A truly rare spectacle! :P

Was nice to see a ZDS in a pub :)

Depends. ZDS is primarily about supporting party eDPS, so stun is kinda secondary.

But, let me try and be more helpful.

At 3 APS while using a Crippling Wave, I'd say that mobs would be stunned about half the time at around 15-20% stun. That reduces incoming dmg by around 50% after about 2 seconds.

At 50% stun, incoming dmg reduced by something like 95+% after about 2 seconds.

Assumes no CC resistance, mobs in melee range using only melee attacks, mobs getting hit by every swing of Crip Wave, and a proc coefficient of near 1 on Crip Wave (i.e., not entirely realistic).

Stun is good. I had postulated before that Sledge Fist could not and should not be buffed substantially in Loot 2.0. It has an intrinsic dps tradeoff that is important. 50 stun% is the equivalent of 10+ max CC% affixes!

I cover this in the ZDS guide, but generally, more than 1200 LOH.

Rhenka is functional, but she's just a test set-up with stacked %CC redux. Try Petalonyx for the set-up I use in 1.08. I think I run about 2k LOH with 3.3/3.4 APS, which has been plenty for me.

@Defender

ZDS w shields are viable, but I generally advise people to use DW in current content. Better I think for you to pick up a Bonesaber of Zunimakis. The increased APS and socket for LOH will be HUGE for you and a vast improvement over the shield IMO. You should notice the differene immediately. You have way more than enough armor, so giving up the shield armor won't hurt that bad.

Remember, APS = Stun, LOH, mobility, and most importantly, spirit gen in ZDS.

I'd use Dashing Strike over TR: Northern Breeze for sure.

Vox - I put together a budget ZDS setup (except for my sledge fist which i got super cheap waaaayyy back when they first got noticed and never sold). Could you give me some comments on it/if I went in the right direction?

I've never done multiplayer crypt runs and want to start, so if anyone needs someone and doesnt mind teaching on the first run or two, I'm your huckleberry!

Thanks for any feedback :)

(Also, ignore the skill setup, I popped on this morning just to swap gear so I could get some feedback, and the only skill I swapped from my solo'ing setup from STI for guiding light just so I'd have an accurate armor number)

Vox, I have never actually looked at your zDPS gear ... it's beautiful.

I think I will throw some zDPS stuff together and give it a whirl one of these days ... the spec looks extremely fun for someone like me who is used to slooooooooooooooow attacks! :D
