Oct 31 Unity passive changes? Hio guyz I recognized that screen damage won't increase anymore when you switch to Unity passive. Of course you need followers/mystic allies or players to increase damage using it. So I wonder right now ... did they change it? Is it multiplicative now? Or did they simply change it to work with real players only? Is it a bug? Somebody got infos? :) Could be pretty strong compared to others if it is multiplicative right now. Thx for rechecking / testing etc :)RiemeKüsu2 Oct 31
Oct 31 Sunwuko's Tempest Rush GR100+ Build Hello everyone! I updated my old Tempest Rush build in the light of upcoming changes in 2.6.1 NEW VIDEO GUIDE: https://youtu.be/xWQ-71bFOWg --- http://www.diablofans.com/builds/87176-sunwukos-tempest-rush-gr100 --- GR98 CLEAR: https://youtu.be/ERYujQc_Rn0 --- http://www.angryroleplayer.com/diablo-3-builds/monk-builds/sunwukos-tempest-rush-gr100/ --- What have changed for Tempest Rush in patch 2.6.1? 1) Balance and Cesar's Memento were buffed 2) Sunwuko 6pc was reworked, Kyoshiro's Soul not needed anymore. 3) Dual wielding instead of two-hander. Furnace dropped. 4) As a result = spirit cost per second increased from 36 to around 49 and now we are not channeling for "free" with OROTZ. 5) It is not uncommon to mess up cooldowns and drop stacks now and then, unfortunately, because of the increased spirit costs. 6) Much harder to play now as you need to watch your cooldowns more closely as well as stack RCR and CDR. But much higher damage. 7) As annoying as before to get !@#$ed by Vortex, Wormhole, Jailer, Knockbacks, Nightmarish.. :)Angry21 Oct 31

Oct 27 Question about Patch 2.6.1 and Sunwuko Set. I already have a Wave of Light build which I used in Season 9, so here's my question, after Patch 2.6.1 goes live, will my Sunwuko Set be updated with the new 6 piece set bonus or I'll have to farm for the gear again ?EdinMG5 Oct 27
Oct 23 Season 12 Monk I havent played a monk since back when you could spawn dozens of blue cyclones which did tons of damage based off attack speed. Got a bunch of gear from upgrading from rare with mats that come from season ends to non seasonal accounts Considering running one for the next season (or back to wiz again) 1. How strong are they running solo compared to other classes?\ 2. What's the playstyle for each of the sets? 3. Season 12 looks like the Uliana set, how good is this compared to other monk sets? 4. Will the power spike from getting the 6 peice Uliana allow me to jump to like T8+ like DH or wiz? or will I need to collect a lot of the non set pieces + ancient to do so? ThanksAstynax0 Oct 23
Oct 23 Feeling a little stuck, looking for advice Hi! I dig my Monk build right now, but I'm worried about stalling out. I play solo, and hardcore. I'm not sure how much better I can get this build. Do I need more ancient gear? Higher level gems? More Paragon? Should I switch up my gear? Switch up my skills? Right now I'm comfortable running greater rift level 48. I hesitate to go much higher without first changing something, because hardcore. (crossposted in hardcore forum. just looking for advice from monks AND hardcore players.) ThanksSoulFlesh3 Oct 23
Oct 23 How fairs Generator monk? I've been thinking about rolling back into Diablo for the next season but every time I start the game up and look at the classes to create a new character I just go "blegh" and shut it back down. The most fun I've had in the past was playing a generator monk back when shenlong's bonus was first changed to be a generator set bonus. I was wondering if generator monk still works as a build, or if it's just too far behind the curve. I don't mind if I'm not a top leaderboard player, but I would at least like to get back to GR75~ as a solo player in the coming seasons. Can a generator still do this with a competitive amount of investment? By this I mean not just is it "possible" but is it possible without requiring extreme investment where other builds would only require moderate investment.BlindJustice1 Oct 23

Oct 15 LON Lashing Tail Kick I've never really played much Monk. But I'm interested to see how the LON build fares with the changes in 2.6.1. The buff to Scarbringer makes it a little better, plus some of the other reworked items like spirit guards or even Incense Torch of the Grand Temple could be fit into the build.Damo1 Oct 15

Oct 13 Innas is getting left behind with no changes. Just wrote a quick summary on the PTR forums. This is the TL;DR version. Innas is great for casual players. R6, Ulianas, ect are all to squishy for 4man 90+ grift (which i see common for 4man pub runs). Innas could use a slight dmg buff or % damage reduction so players can pick up more offensive skills/runes Here is the full topic, any feedback would be great. Thanks from a new-ish monk player. https://us.battle.net/forums/en/d3/topic/20758867920#1IceCoke8 Oct 13
Oct 13 Uliana's ONE BLOW T13 Speed Build (2.6.1) Hey guys! ------- BUILD: http://www.diablofans.com/builds/84297-ulianas-one-blow-t13-speedfarming -------- http://www.angryroleplayer.com/diablo-3-builds/monk-builds/ulianas-one-blow-monk-t13-speedfarming/ --------- VIDEO GUIDE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLq-RyDJhe4 --------- I levelled a lot of gems and farmed a lot of gr keys with this build in the past and in 2.6.1 it became so much stronger!. Very fast in solo and group. Keep in mind it's a SPEEDFARMING build and not a GR push build, so they key is to kill everything fast and move as fast as possible. --- If you can't kill everything in 1-2 blow because of low paragon/low damage/etc then just lower the difficulty. Not need to frustrate yourself and crawl through high tier content slowly. I do T13 in about 2,5-3,5 minutes at p1500 and no augments and 1,8 mill damage. What i like about monk in general is that he's very flexible with skills. You can stack a tonn of damage or you can stack a lot of toughness, or a mix of both. I will describe a few options and combinations of skills.Angry1 Oct 13

Oct 8 2.6.1 Rabid Strike Has anyone on the PTR tested what this actually means: "Fixed an issue where Mimics created from Rabid Strike were not correctly inheriting the player’s bonus damage from Lashing Tail Kick, Seven Sided Strike, Cyclone Strike, Exploding Palm and Wave of Light." Does that mean Rabid Strike finally works with Sunwuko set bonus or does it mean it only works with additive skill bonuses on gear, like GNK, Tzo Krin's, LTK% on boots, etc.?Khord18 Oct 8

Oct 7 2.6.1 Sawuko WoL opinions Hi guys, EU noob player here :) Do you have exp playing with 2.6.1 Sawuko WoL? Is it casual player friendly? Does it require a lot of micromanaging of...everything or would it be more strightforward? Survivability and dmg wise / gearingup wuse - how would you compare it to a hota barb? The reason i ask is i am pretty much decided yet as to my s12 main toon - hota barb - but considering WoL monk as alt...WoL and hota were the only two toons i played a few years back when i first started diii adventure .

Sep 30 Help with returning monk Hello, I'm coming back to D3 after a few years break. Was playing right after the game was released and enjoyed it a lot. However, I ran out of content and decided to try something else. A few weeks ago I decided to come back to the game and it is still fun, lot's of changes. I got through 60-70 on my monk and started grinding paragon and going through torment levels and GRs. At GR40-42 and T9/10 I got stuck with progression and was sitting at the same level for the last week. I don't see any gear that would be an upgrade to my existing items and my gems are maxed out for GR40. Going forward seems to require a lot more DPS and I'm totally puzzled on how to get there. Any advice would be hugely appreciated. Here is my character - https://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/amrus-1982/hero/94139335amrus7 Sep 30
Sep 28 Epiphany uptime question Does anyone understand the developer logic on why epiphany is so difficult (75% cdr required) to maintain 100% uptime ? WOTB, Vengeance, Akarat's Champion are all abilities where 100% uptime can be achieved much easier in multiple builds. It doesn't seem like epiphany is overpowered compared to these abilities, quite the reverse I would think. Apologize if this has been extensively discussed. Searched the forums briefly, but didn't find a satisfactory answer. If there's a link with the discussion, if you wouldn't mind pointing me in the right direction. ThanksFarsighte3 Sep 28
Sep 27 New Monk Basic spec/skills for Uliana's Monk. I just restarted - last played right when greater rifts came out. I made a level 70 necro and Monk. I just got my 6 piece bonus for Uliana's last night on the monk and found that I can solo T6 without issue but team gameplay seems to be harder because I take a solid amount of damage. Can anyone post the basic skill set to pair with Ulianas? I have been using a Mantra for skill 1, seven sided strike skill, the aoe that stacks 3 times, dash and my power generator of thousand fists with wave of light as my spender. I learned how to use the cube (aweesomeee) and put Ingeom (wand that reduces cool downs) as my weapon slot and nemesis braces as my armor slot. Basically I use my spender to apply the explosive punch (or whatever it is Uliana's provides) and pop seven sided strike to detonate. But if I have not killed an elite the CD on seven sided is preventing me from keeping the damage up. If anyone can give the skills to use (which mantra) and also the rune choices, I would appreciate the input!Drocksmash2 Sep 27

Sep 21 Best speed farm monk build? I'm relatively new to monk after playing the class extensively during RAH days I returned to play Sader and DH. My main is LON bomb sader which is my go to for speed farming since it requires very little click clicking. I also enjoy my Impale DH for her ability to melt single targets. I have seen monks progress fairly quickly on farming runs and in some rare instances have found it difficult to keep up with an uber monk. During those times I failed to note which monk build they were running but it was probably a WOL build with in-geom. Can any experience monk build clue me in on what the best farming build might be? I've tried my hand at Sunwuku WOL built but it just doesn't his strong enough. Maybe it's because my gear sucks but at nearly 1200 paragon I would expect something that would at least be close to melting anything that comes close...chosonman21 Sep 21

Excuse the clutter. I made the rather unorthodox choice of not filling some of the skill slots and one of the passives. Mainly because there's no guaranteed best for those, as I proceed to discuss in the guide. Feel free to leave opinions about that, I'm not sure if it appears "incomplete" without them filled in. There's like three places to post theory discussions at this point if you include this topic lol. edit: And excuse the free video editor splash at the beginning and end. I've taken some steps to edit that out with youtube's video editor, but it's taking a bit to process.StoleOwnCar44 Sep 20

Sep 17 zdps monk and necro Can someone explain the timing of when to stop attacking on Rift Guardian for allowing the full duration of Krysbin’s Sentence with necro for max damage. I know that the concept is to avoid all stuns from other sources to allow the full duration. For zdps I heard hit only once ( not three ) for ice blink, once with cyclone for the shoulders and then just lay down sanctuary and stop all attacks Running with 2 necros and we need to push more damage in high 90's Any advice appreciated.

Sep 17 Buff Harmony Passive Might this be a way for monks to survive higher greater rifts? It used to be 100% then got lowered to 40%. Then the enemies got buffed while harmony remained at 40%, resulting in almost every monk build using diamonds in gear. Also a good portion of our skills and gear are dedicated to survival/toughness.Justice11 Sep 17

Sep 11 Reinstalled game this past weekend. Help Hi forum, I reinstalled Diablo 3 this past weekend after a long Hiatus. I quit after the flying dragon and sunwuko set got nerfed. With all the changes to the game, I been having a blast. I moved from GR 30 to GR 50 this past weekend. I think I settled on R6 set to push even further. As it stands, I need to reroll some stats to start using compass rose and travlers pledge, secure another unity ring and start re rolling some stats on spare R6 gear.
