The Dueling Thread

Someone wanna try a build out for me and get back with how it went???

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/monk#adgeTk!cbe!aZcbba

I plan to use something similar to this however I modified it so any monk gear setup could use it


just by looking at it, too much spirit required. impossible to do without quickening

WD/DH COUNTER

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/monk#adeYgQ!cX!YZbbYZ

will go into more detail later. So far undefeated, need to test vs stronger ones.


Here something I also like vs WD.

I like the teleport ability of SSS.... have to play more patient in this build

Yeah I know it's a really gear dependent type of strat but then again I'm a TR/WoL monk :)

Don't overlook spirit ally too. They are great to harass DHs who camp with turrets.

Did you try anymore against REVRAC? That was a fun duel, even though I got crushed. Draco almost got him, he must've be down under 5K life. He did better than I.

anyone know a good recording software? I'd like to recrod my battles with WD to show the exact procedure and timing

SS DH Counter build:

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/monk#adeVgQ!cXT!YbbaY

Unless they're a nat's set user, this will work most of the time since most DH are squishy.

Essentially this is all you do. Run around with your finger on exploding palm.. lol

You need to catch him though. DS is your main tool., You're just going to click DS like crazy until you get close enough.

DH Strafe builds are ez.. SSS them when they are vulnerable during strafe

You find SSS actually hits? For me Bells seem to work alot better. DHs seem to dodge SSS like crazy.

Yes, he is a challenge. But a weakness will be found eventually and we should be able to get a few kills on him.

I've found with DHs they simply try to kite you. I don't chase them into their turrets and let an eternal spirit ally harass while I hide behind a wall. When I see an opening or they try to move in on me I do the standard attack, serenity, blind, bell on SS cooldown maneuver.

It is a bit of a cat and mouse but seems to work well unless they can one shot you. Sometimes you get lucky and Backlash takes them out for you too, especially with the strafe build.

Unfotunately I am not geared to th epoint of taking on the best of the best. I will leave it up to you guys!

:P

another DH SS counter build:

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/monk#adTgYQ!ZTV!.ZaYbZ

The key is movement speed to telegraph where the SS will end, and relentlessly chase after them... when u blind them, the blind animation will linger, making it much easier to track them... after that is all about whether you have SSS available when they exit the SS..

Good hunting my fellow monks... Here some in action (and thanks to jco's gear)

Just because you know what we're gonna do doesn't mean it makes any difference in terms of whether you can stop it or not :)

I agree, it definitely hurts more in my gear vs. timur. But I was still able to win with the build. I wonder I would do vs. REVRAC with good gear. He said he would be on Sunday, but I didn't get a chance to take a shot at him.

@BAMBAM

It's PTR, it's friendly matches. There are so many bugs on the PTR. Most of all being sometimes NDE doesn't proc. I really hope they can balance this thing out. I wanted team PvP....

I got a theory about this NDE not proccing.

Is it because the CD doesn't reset even if you die? For instance you died twice within a minute.
