Random suggestion to categorize the various Sunwuko builds being created into 3+ distinct categories. From what I can tell so far, there are 3 major groups of Sunwuko builds (all using at least mantra or sweeping to consume spirit) and either supplement spirit generation or spending to differentiate. Most have also been using Daibos with Flying Dragon, Inna Reach, or Incense Torch.
Genwuko - using spirit generator
Hexwuko - using tempest rush
Bellwuko - using wave of light
Any others? Maybe....
SunnyDDs - using depth diggers
Tzowuko - using Tzo Krin's Gaze
SunNoShine - non-Shines builds (Hellfire, Holy Beacon)
Sunakancutter - using Akanesh and Skycutter (gen)
Madwuko - using Madstone + 7 Sided (probably FoE)

Good Call Davlok, i'm trying to come up with a clever name for a build, but alas, my creativity is lacking this morning o_O
AnHiWuKo build = Dies a lot and doesn't kill stuff as fast as other Monks - mediocre gear a requirement for this one...
I think if you're dual wielding with swk, skycutter is worse than sunkeeper. With akanesh/sunkeeper, my clones hit a little bit harder on elites than with a FD, but trash takes longer to kill and keeps my progress about the same place as 2h. I much prefer dw and I;m trying to find a way to make it work
I think almost every Sunwuko build will use Crudest - the advantages are just too good to passup vs alternatives.
Added Madstone variant to OP as "Madwuko". I'm sure each category will ensue with a few "cookie" specs/gear-requirements.
I am not using crudest nor do I think that I will in the future for my SWK setup.
I am running "genwuko" and I need SW to spend spirit fast enough and BoH IwL to gen fast enough .... No room for ally :(
2x cap crim + WH or Vigi for me!
It is possible that it could actually start being useful now, but for the most part, meh in my opinion, but I dont have one so I cant say so as an absolute.

I got a 11 minute grift 32 with swk+ crudest boots, they are detinitively fun and interesting to use, remains to be seen if they can perform well at 35+ or higher.
We can call it Crudewuko or Mysticwuko xD,
also I think sweeping wind has to be mentioned somewhere, its a huge aspect for SWK , Windwuko!

Think every sunwuko build is using either SW or Mantra, though Crud is sorta an option - but can fit in almost every category too!
I have one, and it didn't work on the bonus spirit from the old quickening/iwl, might with the 2,1 versions... but I'm leaning towards not being worthy.
Haha, I'm totally calling it now -
Mantras - Added a 3 second cooldown to help prevent accidental double casting
Sweeping Wind - Added a 3 second cooldown to help prevent accidental double casting
Next PTR? Maybe!
True that missed that part reading the OP, I guess crude+SW its just the 2nd layer of my build , main would be genwuko then.
^ Sadly this nails their "balancing" style, perhaps trow a few +2 spirit per second buffs to compensate
Im scared T_T
