26m Grifts, Inna set... Any suggestion? I'm not sure if you guys can check my monk or not from here, but i will ask anyway. I've played with lots of players and they were just running around on torment X, XI and XII killing everything in their path without a care in the world. Since they told me that they got this strong playing Greater Rifts i asked them to help me gear up a bit to give it a try. I still haven't tried yet, but right now i can easily beat torment I, probably torment II, while III should be a fair match. Anyone can give me hints and tips? I wouldl ike to reach a good enough level too, i'm starting to feel quite useless when we play together.Dorante9976 26m
1h First ever monk - seasonal run Anyone have tips or know of go too link for builds. Any advice appreciated.Smusher0 1h
2h [2.5] Twelve Kick Monk Why 12? Because you have 10 Mystc Allies + You + Rabid Clone kicking stuff in the face! (note: allies don't actually LTK, but they do kick stuff!) This is just a simple guide for a S10 Inna set + LTK for some quick Torment X-XIII farming and solo gem leveling! (Last 3 seasons I usually resorted to SWK-WoL of some form and avoided SWK-LTK stacks management). Reached GR70 with some excessive dying to Perendi and farmed Torment XIII with a medium level of efficiency at low paragons. Inna is a super flexible base set to use with just about any other skill damage multiplier items (SSS, LTK, WoL, TR), so this build really isn't anything new. I was just surprised how well it worked without equipping Gyana and finally got to use a non-fire rune with Rabid Strike ^_^ As with most early-season builds, your RNG luck with items (particularity your few weapon ancients) will probably dictate what build you go for, but this season has been fairly painless using this. I actually used a Jawbreaker as a welfare In-Geom for the first 400 paragon -_- Gearing: Basic Starter Version (Extra Toughness Recommended Replacement) Inna Helm/Chest/Gloves/Belt/Pants Lefebvre's Soliloqy Bindings of a Lesser God / Nemesis Bracer / Strongarms Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac Traveler's Pledge + Compass Rose -OR- Hellfire + CoE/SoJ Crudest Boots Scarbringer / In-Geom (Crystal Fist) Cube: Rabid Strike, Rivera Dancers, RRG Gems: Bane of the Trapped, Bane of the Powerful, Gogok, Enforcer, Boon of the Hoarder (whatever you prefer!) * - My pledge doesn't have a socket, so I'm still only using 2 gems ^_^; Stats Priorities With OrtZ and using Insight, just use whatever your best gear has ^_^ I focused more on RCR than CDR. Build Skills: (Toughness Replacement) LTK: Sweeping Armada - Fun! DS; Radiance - IAS! (Blinding Speed) Annihilation/Transgression - speed! (Agiltiy) Mystic Ally Insight - Spirit + Teleport (Desert Shroud) Implosion/Wall of Wind - For Grouping/Relentless STI - 30%! Bacon of Ytar - protein Relentless Assault - Cold Ally 3s freeze = win (Harmony) NDE (or Harmony) LTK Rune is flexible with whatever you have +% element with. I preferred Sweeping Armada as a large radius melee rune so I could Epiphany teleport. Gameplay Use Epiphany + LTK into combat and activate ally to heal/spirit-up/freeze elites until legendaries drop! If pushing that GR70 for the first time, sub in Crystal Fist, Agility, and some toughness rolls to unlock those primals! Sample T13/T12/T11 Gameplay Video https://youtu.be/DnzplpS9iiIDavlok183 2h
2h Season 11 Raiment Duo Gen Monk---Help? First time with monk build. Casual solo player and not too bothered by the grind. I have completed thru Ch 3 and have 4 pieces. DPS is lacking with lesser other gear. Surviving higher difficulty, BUT taking forever to bring down elites, etc. Got everything setup like build says. Is there a trick to playing this build? Currently paragon 43, running T2 and hoping for better gear to drop. Thank you for your time.Akibono0 2h
4h Rainment of a Thousand Storms 6-piece buff of Raiment DOES NOT proc when no enemies are around. I don't know if this is intentional or if it is a bug but I personally feel that it should still proc since it is a set bonusLegionofCorn2 4h
4h Need help pushing Decided to go monk this season to zdps because barb zdps got boring for me, was wondering what i need switch out to solo 70 so i get can get primals this is hardcore alsoJamesixchain1 4h
15h Shenlong Need these stupid weapons ancient! Whats my best bet? Please dont say reforge i hate bounties so much. Topped out at gr 56 with the cache set, nothing ancient paragon 230 something, want to hit that 70 fast as possible and those weapons need to be foundGrindgrizzly3 15h
1d Kanai and Bindings of the Lesser Gods Why there's no Kanai entry for that legendary item (Bindings of the Lesser Gods) with the related property?hekoone3 1d
1d Monk Build not squish like bootters likes http://www.diablofans.com/builds/93115-monk-generator-not-squish-gr100-season-11 Monk Build generator not squish like the botter likes, made a mixed one, about damage and defense.Stacler1 1d
1d ZDPS? I have not played monk in forever and was curious if there is a mobile zdps build out there for group play with my friends. I have looked at quite a few builds and started to regear a monk but I feel more squishy than my WD and DH which is wierd. This is probably mostly gear dependent but it bugs me. Im guessing rhimeheart / frostburns etc is no longer the way but is there a fast movement build that can pull for my friends and won't get instajibbed? If not what would you guys suggest for basically trying to farm gr80? Im not looking to push 100 or anything im not that hardcore. Thanks in advance!Tzutsu5 1d
1d Some skills need elemental variety! So many times, I have started a monk where fire damage is the most viable element, until I get all the gear I need to make a proper build. Fists of Thunder is, arguably, the most favored monk primary skill, if nothing else, for it's teleport-to-target effect. The Static Charge rune is pretty much useless now, so why not change it to something like: You explode violently, dealing 220% weapon damage as fire to enemies within 12 yards every third hit. Fists of Thunder's damage turns into fire. Please give Fists of Thunder a fire rune. And Mystic Ally has too many physical damage runes; Air Ally should be a lightning rune, and Enduring Ally should be a holy rune. As far as I'm concerned, everything else has enough variety, and only skills that deal damage (not just skill runes like Breath of Heaven's Circle of Scorn, since Breath of Heaven isn't an offensive skill) benefit from various elemental states. Vote up if you agree. Feel free to politely comment or complain.Kor11342 1d
2d Sweeping Wind Stack Counter. Did anyone else lose their stack count on the hot bar with the new patch?Mckain10 2d
2d Spirit degen with shenlong still a thing? Why is this not removed and just give the buff, it's not like it's clearing 110 without augments like some other not to mention class is doing. Would it be too strong without the degen? I doubt it....Aspirine3 2d
3d Scarbringer reroll Hi, would like some advice on a scarbringer I found, I'm using LON LTK. 1560-1940 holy damage 1000 dex 24% area damage 540 life per spirit spent (i've stacked CDR so my LTK are 32 spirit , so this is 17280 life/kick) What should I reroll, if anything? I'm getting mixed results searching BIS, some say #1 thing on weapon is area damage, some suggest BIS doesn't even have area damage etc. Thank you!FrankWLaughs1 3d
4d Madstone still in the game? UPDATE: 11:10 PM EST 113 rare spirit stones upgraded. Still no Madstone. I know this sounds like an unusual thing to ask, but is this spirit stone still in the game? I took a long break from the game and I don't know if they changed it or removed it from the game or anything. I farmed up approximately 1200 deaths breath and I upgraded a total of 48 rare spirit stones and I didn't get the madstone for some reason. Can anyone shed some light on this? I was kinda disappointed to spend so much deaths breath and not get any results. I was hoping to use all the deaths breath on some other things, not blow it all on one spirit stone.OrangeJuice8 4d

5d Uliana monk lacking survivability? I currently have a monk with the full set, and pieces to suit the build nicely for a chain bomb / SSS setup. It clears everything extremely well. But the problem is it lacks in survivability of any kind. Any changes I can do to make it less of a glass cannon?Faellin5 5d
5d Build/Gear Advice for GR62+ I am struggling to go any higher than GR62 with Inna Gen. Damage isn't so much an issue, more getting one-shot by things, then the deaths cause me to run out of time. Anyone have any tips? I'd be open to trying different builds/gear, if anything has better survivability and similar damage. Or do I just need better gear/higher paragon in general? I've not had much luck with ancients so far.PiERiT12 5d
5d Monk 70 T6 Can anyone point me at a monk build (sans monk sets) that can handle T6 so I can farm some monk sets. As can be seen from my profile my monk is 70+400 but I really only played him pre loot 2.0. I have access to, I think, all current leg gems as well as Restraint/Focus and Compass Rose/Travellers Pledge if they would help.Rommel774 5d
6d Monk [sug] Dashing Strike Damage skill with Rabid strike changes. Make EDIT, Fleshrake DS damage different, take away +100% damage for 5 hits it should get all runes and every 3rd-4th hit it does 1500% your damage for that one hit. (every 5 seems to much, 3-4 would be better) This way it slows down the build but makes it stronger. The Problem with DS skill as damage is that its to hard to balance due to its speed, if its too strong we will have 1min T13s, but currently it is rather weak. PS: I'd rather see U6 get updated 1st (as every monk player), just thought about this and wanted to share. And felt changing this 1 weapon could fix 1 build quickly.Faux6 6d
6d Fix Rabid Strike please fix Rabid Strike to work with all items/set damage bonuses, otherwise is just a confusing useless item that was better to not create.Danutz233 6d
6d s11 solo build ideas? Hey guys, Last season was my first serious season of playing d3. Played mostly monk and really enjoyed it. Ended up only playing for about a month because my friends ended up quitting but I played mostly pet build and ended up pushing to GR 75 solo. I tried generator monk but never really had much success because I was too squishy. Anyways this upcoming season I'm planning to play monk again but am going to focus on solo pushing instead of group play. I'm trying to figure out what builds are going to be best this season (I know it may be to early to tell since the season hasn't started yet). I also noticed that some players ran a different solo build for speed clearing. Is this a popular thing to do? If so what build should I be using for speed clears? Appreciate any feedback, trying to get myself pumped up as I wait for the season to start, thanks!Dentwan8 6d
Jul 17 Lefebvre's Soliloquy Guys I'm farming to build my Zdps monk (regular, not season). I'm trying to get the Lefebvre's Soliloquy shouldres for the past week. I already spent 15k + of Blood Shards and thousands of resources trying to create the Lefebvre's on the cube. My question is: It is possible to get them with a regular character? I'm extremely unlucky? ThanksApache6 Jul 17

Jul 16 Dashing Strike Dmg with 6 pcs Raiment Set Hello All, This season I am learning and trying to do a Quinn style God Monk with the 6 pcs Raiment Sets as in patch 2.4.1. But after engaging the spirit generator, the Dashing Strike weapon damage doesn't seems to increase by the 12,500%. I open up the inventory window to observe the damage value, but there isn't any incremental damage shown. Kindly advise if there is a bug or Raiment Set/Dashing Strike has been nerfed, or simply that such my misunderstand is outdated and look at the build damage increase incorrectly. As I was looking at the Quinn's PTR utube on the build, "D3 God Monk [T10 Speed - Patch 2.4.1]", after the WotHF punch, I saw that the DS Damage went from 1.5 million to 4.5 million with the dashing strike as stacks. Please advise and shed some light on this build damage. Thanks all in advanceAnBattle16 Jul 16
Jul 15 KYOSHIRO'S SOUL Probably has been mentioned before but can we please just have this give us 2 stacks a second, including to activate Sweeping Wind itself? It is very frustrating to have to turn Sweeping Wind back on when it falls off, or to have to watch for it when using Sunwuko's. Replace: "Sweeping Wind gains 2 stacks every second it does not deal damage to any enemies." With: "Sweeping Wind gains 2 stacks every second and will stay active at 0 stacks."Stark1 Jul 15

Jul 13 Uliana's EP buff? Does it look like Uliana's EP build will ever get buffed? Its one of my favorite builds to play, and im coming very close to optimizing it, yet it can only handle Grift 75 as of 2.6. I know that the other monk builds are pushing high 90's. does anyone think uliana's is due for a buff, or will it remain the mid-tier build?Soup10 Jul 13
Jul 13 Need some advice on my current monk build Hello all, I just began playing D3 about a week ago, and I was just wondering if I could have some advice in optimizing my current monk build. I'm having loads of fun with SWK LTK, although I'm not sure how viable this build is for the later grifts(currently at 61). I am noticing that I'm getting a bit squishier as I go higher into the tiers, but everything dies so fast. I did try the Inna's build, and while I'm surviving a lot more and mobs die at lightning speeds, rift guardians die a lot slower. So I prefer the former. Right now I'm farming for ancients to boost my damage a bit more, and upgrading my legendary gems so I can augment my items later down the road. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.

Jul 13 [2.4.3 LoN] One Kick Monk 2.4.3 Edit: Updated guide to use LoN-LTK with the new Rabid Strike. This was built more for T13 and speed solo GR farming for gem leveling instead of "pushing", but did include some solo GR pushing suggestions that the Korean monks have used to get GR95+ Overall, as with all LoN builds, mostly targeted at non-season scrubs like myself who don't really want to play Sunwuko Stack Manager 3 ^_^; ~ Rabid LoN Build ~ Simple guide to using the new 2.4.3 Rabid Strike with Lashing Tail Kick for some quick Torment 13 and Solo GR gem-ups! I feel this build is the both efficient and fun way for the solo player like myself ^_^ Goals: Farm Torment XIII, level up Gems solo to about GR70 or push leaderbaords! Gearing: Catered towards non-season packrats like myself who have +7 Corruption Shoulders and Rondal's Locket. T13 Version (Solo GR Recommended Replacement) Gyana Na Kashu Cindercoat Magefist Nemesis > (Bindings of the Lesser God / Strongarms) Goldwrap > (Witching Hour/String of Ears) Wailing Host + Litany of the Undaunted Rondal's Locket > (Hellfire) Corruption > (Lefebvre's) Swamp Land Waders > Hexing Pants Rivera Dancers Scarbringer / Rabid Strike (Crystal Fist) Cube: In-Geom (Flying Dragon), Laws of Seph, Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac Gems: Bane of the Trapped, Bane of the Powerful (Stricken), Boon of the Hoarder (Gogok) Stats Priorities A balance of 40% CDR + RCR is a good target. Add a single Life-on-hit roll and a lot more Area Damage if intending to push GR90+. Build Skills: (Pushing GR Recommended Replacement) LTK: Vulture Claw Kick - Fun! DS; Radiance - IAS! (Blinding Speed) Annihilation/Transgression - speed! (Agiltiy) BF: Faith in the Light - Seph + Damage (Replenishing Light) Insight - Spirit + Teleport (Desert Shroud) Implosion/Wall of Wind - For Grouping/Relentless STI - Ally damage Bacon of Ytar - protein Relentless Assault - BF uptime should be high! NDE (Hellfire for GR = Harmony) LTK Rune is flexible with SFK, and HoY can also be used with some thought and more RCR! Gameplay Use Epiphany + LTK into combat and blinding flash elites until legendaries drop! If pushing high solo GR, group up to maintain spirit with Replenishing Light and abuse Area Damage! It also turns out Bindings of the Lesser Gods buffs the Rabid Strike clone damage, so use that for extra damage if you don't like Nemesis for speeds!

Jul 11 Innas vs SWK LTK I don't have any LoN gear yet so I'm using a 6pc of another set. Some people have said that SWK does more damage and Innas is tankier. Which makes sense with the 10 followers with Innas and the higher dmg 6pc on SWK. Any thoughts?SilverBullet3 Jul 11
Jul 11 Inna's Army - an AWESOME force!! I run fast T8 with squeezing through GR 43 as a paragon 70/593 after playing for 6 months. My T8 time runs from about 14:30 down to 6:30. My characters are Crusader (all ancients-11), Wizard (mixed FB, TR, Krelm, and Chantodo), and Monk (all ancients-11 or my Inna's Army). The Crusader takes the longest while the Monk Inna's Army is amazing at less than 1/2 the time. I've tried all the leading skill settings, and have had and tried all the sets for these characters. Have you ever wished you could just get an extra couple of fighters to help beat back the monsters? Inna's Army is amazing!! Why "Army"? Because I get me plus 14 other fighters all doing powerful damage. Plus at high levels it provides very strong defense without having to give up other stats. Here's the character: https://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/drkenrich-1779/hero/88178322 Inna's 6 set gives 4 Mystic Allys (4 fighters). The Crudest Boots doubles that (+4 fighters) AND doubles the Mystic Ally skill for double the damage. Kanai's Cube Maximus gives a very powerful Demonic Slave (+1 fighter). My Templar (+1 fighter) wears the Nagelring (+4 Fallen Lunatic fighters). Total 14 fighters greatly multiplying my own 505,000 damage. For high level defense I use Sweeping Wind/Fire Storm to create a wide circling and stacking ring of damage. Instead of leading, I follow my army as a protective shield. I add Seven-Sided Strike and Mystic Ally skills for my huge damage needs. It helps that I have 40% Cooldown to get fast recharge of these skills. They are 30 seconds, but at 16 seconds I can alternate them for great effect. Hopefully others will see the logic of this build and get a kick out of running an army for fast clearing and kills. The great thing is that it can compete with much higher Paragon characters and is relatively easy to acquire and set up.drkenrich2 Jul 11
Jul 10 Primal Scarbringer re-roll I found a Primal Scarbringer last night. Stats are 10% damage 1000 dex 24% Area Damage I am pretty sure I need CDR on the weapon. What do I roll off, dex or AD? Is AD a huge deal for LoN LTK? I would just rather not ruin the weapon. Thanks all! KidKidyen5 Jul 10
Jul 9 Stormshied... increasing damage? So I have a stormshield.... when I replaced a demon claw.. the damage went up like 3million... the dexterity is within 30 points. Is there something I don't understand or see on the stormshied? (I've looked and there is no critical hit chance)jynxedmonkey1 Jul 9
Jul 9 Challenge - With Friends Like These Hey Monks - I'm just trying to finish off some very old achievements/challenges and as the title states - WFLT challenge is getting me down:) I've started a new monk and got him to level 15 so I can use cyclone strike. I'm using a bad weapon and not equipping much gear. Should I use up my 1650 paragon points at all or just direct them into vitality and life. Any thoughts/pointers on this old challenge. P.S. Even with the bad weapon; the cyclone strike weakens the enemies, so you can only use it once or maybe twice before they die. Please help.tySnowman1 Jul 9
Jul 7 Pants to support LON LTK I am enjoying a lot LON LTK build. nice gameplay, nice synergy between items on the build... Only the pants are missign here. Will be nice to have some pats that support this build, e.g. "Critical hits have a chance to restore 30 spirit"Danutz232 Jul 7

Jul 6 Grift 70 push help I recently started playing Diablo 3 again and I am a little confused as to what I should be doing next. My build is a little outdated but I am still able to do grift 62 with it. Would it be easier to work with this build or rebuild an Innas set and push for 70 that way? Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)PriapusXII4 Jul 6
Jul 6 Which Two Sets Should I Keep? I have room enough to keep two sets and their supporting gear, and no more. I do like the seven sided strike set, so I'll probably definitely keep that, because I have a pretty good Lion's Claw and that kind of stuff, but I main a Demon Hunter, so I don't know which sets I should keep, which are most fun, or most powerful…Any opinions?StoneOld3 Jul 6
Jul 5 key binding I choose to key 8 as my epiphany so I put my second key bind as such. when I left my cyclone strike on key 3 to my surprise my key 8 still pressed on cyclone strike (say what???). yes I pressed on apply button and yes pressed on accept button in that order please tell me what I did wrong. thanking you in advance .titusiam121 Jul 5
Jul 4 My level 24 build, share your builds/tactics http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculato...ZYifS!YX!Zaa.a Here's my 24 Monk's current build. Let me explain to you brahs how I do it... I'll start off a fight by activating Sweeping wind. Attacking will keep this up for the entire duration of the fight so I won't need to refresh. It does great AOE damage. Then I'll use Cyclone strike to pull all enemies in to me. Then I'll pop Blinding Flash so now all enemies are dazed. I'll hit them with a few deadly reaches to generate spirit, and since they're all literally bunched up right around me now I'm hitting like 8 mobs at a time. Then I'll pop a Lashing Tail Kick to finish off everything. This whole combo seriously kills most things in one go and lets me clear out entire rooms full of mobs with ease. My passives give me really strong defense and I usually end fights with full health cause I'm using tons of spirit to heal and you get a ton of mitigation with the armor increase. I'm really enjoying the massive varities of builds you can use, and the fact that there are so many different synergies and builds that WORK. And not just one "great" build.TopTierGamer8 Jul 4
Jul 4 Progression with my Monk. I've been stuck at Grift 47 with my Monk for a very long time, and i dont really feel like i am making any progress into higher difficulty. Please, have a look at my current build, and tell me if there is some things that need change: https://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Rockboy-2224/hero/82741395 The build is centered around the Inna's Mantra set. The increased damage from each Mystic Ally is the key. I am also using Wave of Light, along with Incense Torch of the Grand Temple to make it spamable. All of you monks out there, please help me! Diablo gets boring, when no progress is made! :(Rockboy2 Jul 4
