It's a SW/SSS build with massive speed, but no real Spirit per second gear required. You can easily modify it to be more bell-spammy with your gear if you wanted.
Regarding the lack of AoE on SW, I'm not sute you've played with a TC/Cyclone build that had enough CC. Every other hit generates a tornado that spins out and hits 6 times, and have a large range. Even TR rush builds use SW because it's the most efficient way to kill large groups of enemies. A huge advantage is also that all this is passive and requires no additional spirit expenditure, so you can soend more on maintaining max buffs 100% of the time. There's a reason the build is referred to as the "cookie cutter" over on the Monk forums. There really isn't much as generally efficient.
As a reference point, even witg picking up rares, playing HC carefully, and not trying too hard, I can get somewhere between 20M and 30M XP per hour with the cookie cutter if I want. If you're bored with it or don't like it, then do something you find more fun. But it's brutally effective at every MP.
