Maximus + SweepingWind-Firestorm = insane XP

Monk
I'll leave my profile here.

Sorry not altruistic enough to create a guide for peeps.

Moral of the story is I am farming XP faster in the sub-10 million gear I'm wearing than the $200+ gear I sold a few months back.

Maximus and Sweeping Wind with Firestorm is really, really good and fast XP @ MP 0-3. The next piece is Fleet Footed and finally WotHF-Blazing Fist OR FoT-Thunderclap (they both provide the added acceleration so depends on if you'd rather go +15% above speed cap or teleport).

EVERYTHING melts with Firestorm... it's pretty sweet and damn fast when you are moving 35%+...

Just trying to keep the sheep out of the fields and roaming free ;).
sssshhhh... ;)

A bit outdated vid, but I enjoyed using Maximus too, still my favourite weapon in game :D

Add these for dramatic effect
thank you OP
I was getting bored of cookie cutter or even wave of light
I'm now smashing demons with a nice maximus and a very cool build ( all passives oriented for spirit regen=>8.5sp/s ) with thunderclap, sweeping wind/ firestorm, and explosive palm with the last rune ( fire damage ), at 34% MS, this is just GREAT.

You strike me as a social shut in in real life.

All you ever do is comment like you're either a flamboyant gay, or a woman. Either way your need for attention is insatiable. What's with all your emoticons?
I don't think a Maximus can ever out DPS a moderate Skorn with Firestorm :P

I will do the math later but the lack of stats and the elemental damage instead of black damage on Maximus is just too Painful! :(

This. That said a maximus is infinitely cheaper so that might work out for you.
