I have some of the best gear to play around with for any specific build element you can think of so I think I have tried it all tonight.
Mainly everything I have tested has been from the new WoL,LTK and new passives/skills and new APS to generators.
I feel this ptr patch was the defensive patch.. meaning transcendence is really good now. but that's about it.
They do feel very good now with the increase in APS, but still damage is lacking.
Pure Generator builds that I tested tonight
SWK holy + WoL (Dragon and Torch tested)
Lighting (no Jawbreaker)
Fire + LTK
Cold + Rimeheart
Still all generator builds above still max out around GR 29-30.
WoL animation does feel much better, still hit like a wet noodle. Torch weapon with reduced cost on WoL and the new Epiphany Insight help to spam more WoL's but with few holy damage items WoL is criting around 30 mil +.
LTK radius change was nice, and GNK increase helps as well. Even with LTK at 50 spirit its possible to still spam it but once again you just lose to much damage to get to that sweat spot to be able to spam it. Lighting LTK is nice because you can just perma stun now but still the damage feels weak as LTK crits around 20 mil+
All these builds above have potential do to legendary gems but the damage is still not were we need to be.
Also these changes do help the average monk to do T6, but does not help with higher GR at all...
All in all I am just drained. The SWK Madstone+SSS was nerfed so now the king of all is still 1k storms + jawbreaker. Ping Pong monk is king.
Its just still not there yet... and I am worried that this ptr is coming to a end soon..
