Lots of variation among monks on leaderboards

Monk
I've been scoping out the leaderboards to see what builds work, and I'm very skeptical of what I'm seeing. I wonder if these guys are just swapping out armor/changing builds to throw people off.

One guy on the top is using a full Uliana's build. Isn't that worthless now?

Two appear to be using the static charge build. But that just can't be right.

Profile updates as you swap gear. So you may be looking at out dated data.
If you wanna know what skills and gear they use, log into the game, go to leaderboards, rightclick names and click "view here details".
That Picture is snapshotted on completion and does not update their profile if they swap gear.
To be sure i generally look at their gear. If its mostly ancients with level 70 augments and next to perfect stats its unlikely they put that much effort into hiding their build.
Keep in mind the date of the record. There are still a few folks on the top tier of Non-season rocking Static Charge builds before 2.4 hit. The leaderboard "snapshots" the gear & spec they used so don't go by their current monk profiles.

But as far as variation, Caldesaan's Despair is definitely lowering the amount of build varierty you will see at the top, since the 13x high level gem investment wall is quite high to overcome if you're just trying to gauge how "good" a build is when pushing GRs.

Personally, I like seeing non-shenlong builds and scroll down the leaderboard until I see someone rocking Istvans or using a Daibo.
Is there any way to remove yourself from the leaderboards? I'd take away my rank 87 solo in a heartbeat with Inna's gen if I could place 150-200 on my firebell LoN reapers build, i'd be much more happier/proud of that accomplishment.
Much like Davlok said, I scroll the leaderboards to find anyone ranked that isn't Innas gen build.

No way to get your record removed unless you report yourself for a name violation! heh
