23 Aug 2011 Forum Guidelines - Please Read Welcome to the Diablo III discussion forums! This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss all aspects of Diablo III with your fellow players. Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct before posting. Search The new search function at the top of the Diablo III community site is extremely robust. Please be sure to use it to look for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer before creating your forum topic. Making a new thread on an existing subject will likely result in your thread being deleted. If you continue to repost it you're likely to have your posting privileges suspended for spamming. Worst of all, you'll be making the other forum goers upset that you didn't take a minute to search before posting. Rating The new rating system can be used to promote positive discussion, and demote unhelpful posts, or even report posts that violate the forum code of conduct. By hovering over a post you'll be presented with a thumbs up, and a thumbs down icon. Clicking the 'thumbs down' icon you can choose from a few options. Dislike will rate the comment down. If enough people dislike a post it will be darkened, or with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden. You can also quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of the violation. You can only rate each post once. Use it wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Guidelines In addition to the Forum Code of Conduct (, here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow to ensure these forums remain a constructive and friendly gathering place for the community. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, these cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked.

Any topics not related to Diablo III, or Blizzard are subject to deletion. Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, non-standard symbols, etc. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Using the words Blizzard, Blue, or any community team members name in a thread topic to gather attention is frowned upon Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that. However, use of such words in the topic does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Note that threads discussing e.g. the Blizzard authenticator or Blizzard’s latest press release are allowed to have Blizzard in the title as it’s then relevant to the discussion. Posting "First" or IBTL constitutes as spamming You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL (in before the lock) is not helpful and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. Posting TLDR or L2P constitutes as trolling Posting TLDR (Too Long, Didn’t Read) is saying you don’t care about a player’s post. Posting L2P (Learn to Play) mocks the player for their skill or experience level rather than provide constructive input on the post itself. Both are considered trolling and will lead to a suspension.Zhydaris1 23 Aug 2011

6d Greater Rift mission issue Hello all, It's my first season in the game but seems I have run into an issue. I have completed all but the Solo to Rank 20 Greater Rift. My friend and I did some co-op higher rank rifts in his game, so I could increase my paragon level as I could solo till rank 18. After I was happy with my upgrades, DPS and survival rate, I went back to try and tackle 18,19 and so forth in my game and found out that my GR rank had increased to rank 33(!?!). Does that mean that I have lost the chance to finish it because I did a co-op in his game or I just need to finish a rank 20 GR solo to claim it?DanteVonHan2 6d
04 Dec U4+Inna 6 SSS viability ? Hey guys, I found a build on Diablofans that seems to be really fun to play : I'm wondering if someone already tried this (or a similar setup), before I start to farm required items.. Here's the build : -U4 for first two bonuses (applying EP + boosted SSS) -Inna 5 + weapon for the damage boost thanks to allies, Crudest boosts being cubed. -Endless walk, + unicity/rorg (one cubed, one equiped) -Flow of Eternity cubed for SSS CDR Any comment about that ?Lynàlia3 04 Dec
02 Dec Dual-wield Lightning Questions Hey so I finally just got my Wyrdward for cube, now I'm just missing a Dovu Energy Trap for my neck (unless Hellfire would be better?) for a lightning stun build. But where I'm majorly torn, is in what weapons to use and and which primary attack to go with; I like Fists of Thunder with the 1st run for dashing around and splashing everything, but Way of the Hundred Fists lands more hits per strike, and some powers are worded "on hit" rather than "on/when attacking" so I'm curious if say for instance, something like Sky Cutter - which in my limited experience only seems to proc once per seven-sided strike - can potentially proc off every hit from 100 fists? My gems are Gogok, Lightning Weave and Stricken for some nice synergy though I've been considering swapping stricken for trapped - only problem with that is even with Dovu stuns don't last long and I really like the idea of stricken comboing with my gogok and 2-piece Storms bonus for rapidly increasing damage. But if anyone has a better suggestion by all means. Anyway, the weapons are the most confusing bit. There's actually a lot more lightning-based powers than I realized at first. Currently dual-wielding Thunderfury and Ruminator (both of which sadly have INT because I found them on my necro, need new ones for my Monk lol) and I have skycutter set as my cube weapon for some single-target burst. I tried out Schaefer's hammer, the constant AoE is nice but I really don't like how it's DoT that doesn't stack with itself considering how many attacks I'm putting in. I'll probably end up using an Odyn Son in 1 of my hands as I forgot it actually has +lightning damage on it which is huge; sucks that it's slower than the swords but that potential 20% modifier is more than worth it. So what should my other weapons be? I do really like the thunderfury + fulminator combo of powers lightning everything up around me but then without skycutter I find my single target damage can suffer. The chain lightning effect from Odyn son doesn't seem nearly as good as those swords either but again, that 20% mod is too good... I also really like that one power that adds 7 more stacks of sweeping wind... a constant 1050% damage aura that spews electric tornadoes is pretty nice. Oh and skill setup is as follows; Serenity (escape button), Sweeping Wind, Seven-Sided Strike (burst damage + extra escape) and Mantra of Evasion ('cause gokok and dual-wield for more dodge) and then I use Tempest Rush on my right click mostly to help plow through waves of trash while splashing for yet more lighting damage, though I've been considering swapping it for Wave of Light for more on-demand burst.Malachite0 02 Dec

12 Nov Raiment - Shenlog. HELP ! Greetings, So I saw that guy a while ago playing a monk with the Raiment-Shenlog build which has great damage potential so I decided to make one too ... ouch ... Think is, I never tried to play a monk before but his play-style looks fun and I never looked for any info about him, so I visited a site for the build, and I made it, I found every single item for the build and cube, most of them ancients. I even got the right bonuses, gems e.t.c. The problem is, I went on a rift to try it, I was taking SOOO much damage and I was dealing like none. I figured that I had to hit with my generators until my Spirit is full for my Shenlog to work but when it started emptying the damage didn't make much of a difference, I was dealing Ks of damage in a rift I should be dealing Bs -.- Any tips someone ? I really wanna learn how to play that build but I have no clue xD Any help is appreciated :)) Thanks in advance !Lupinian2 12 Nov
24 Oct Is augmenting on zmonk worth it? I am currently pushing GR with two friends. We are currently at 104. I used the build of some of the highest 3-man pushers in GR. Right now in GR 104 i have no problem surviving what so ever (greatly thnx to the countess julia in kube). I already augmented 2 items for 800 int total getting my average res. at around 2000. My question to those who reached higher GR's. Is augmenting items on zmonk for high gr's worth it? thnx in advance DukeWard PS: Sorry for my english.DukeWard2 24 Oct

29 Aug Improving my Inna EP monk So, a week or 2 back I got back into Diablo 3, rolled a seasonal monk and have now got the Inna's set. So far I've steamrolled everything up to Tormet VI. I haven't tried alot of GR, but my last run through was GR27 and it took me about 7 minutes so... It's a bit slapdash! I haven't read up alot about proper builds aside from Uliana EP/Inna EP builds. It's pretty fun to play so far, though! Anyway, here's how I roll: For basics I got Sweeping Wind (+Vengeful Wind) and all the goodies from Inna's set (Not sure if it shows up right in my profile but I got Royal Grandeur in Kanai jewelry slot so I only wear 5 bits). For attacks I usually pop Epiphany (+Rabid Strike) and rotate through EP, 7SS (+Madstone) and LTK (+Gyana Na Kashu). I don't run out of spirit often with EP and SW almost constantly refilling my reserves, but I keep Wot100F just in case. For defence, I think I got decent resist/life per hit. Zodiac ring keeps the cooldowns nice and short so I can almost constantly pop Epiphany/7SS. Rogar's ring helps a bit with survivability. I quite like Vengeful Wind, but the other weapon would probably be better as a Lion's Claw or Fist of Az'Turrasq. The shoulders and head are right now just what I got, and I'd probably soon replace them if I found something that suited my skill loadout better. In any case, I'm collectiing Uliana gear right now because it would probably fit my playstyle alot better (EP+7SS=<3) Anyone willing to share any ideas that would improve my build before I can collect the full Uliana gear? I'd love to hear it. Cheers!Bart1 29 Aug
01 Aug Dashing Strike Delay in Combat Hey all, I've looked through a few pages of this forum and can't seem to see this anywhere. Is anyone else having an issue with Dashing Strike either delaying before casting or not casting at all? I'm finding that i'm having to mash dashing strike sometimes to even get a cast off, otherwise I can have up to a 1s delay I've checked latency I know my PC is capable of running the game, I've even lowered settings to be sure it wasn't lag. I wasn't sure if it was my cheap keyboard but I haven't experienced the problem elsewhere. I've not had such an issue with any other skill on any other class and this delay isn't present outside of combat Now that i'm pushing 100+ i'm finding that I'm ahead on timer but then I get set back by some really stupid deaths where I just couldn't use dashing strike and god help me if a dashing strike build ever becomes META.... Thanks in advance for your insightsTortoise7 01 Aug
27 Jul What to improve to push grift 95+ (season). Greetings, I just finished grift 94 but it wasnt that easy. For some reason lots of things takes as well loads of time to kill.

29 May Dieing lots but why?! - ZMonk This build has trouble staying alive. Not sure why... Not long ago I was doing 110+ and now it is hard to do 110+ I tried getting more globe bonus on my gear but can't see why I should be dieing and it seems to be against melle.jme6 29 May
08 May Wave of Light mechanics questions So question 1 is the driving reason I came back to the forums, but if anyone can answer these others, it would be awesome. I'm a bit of a min-maxer, so I'm trying to squeeze every ounce of potential from this skill. 1. Does Wave of Light benefit from cooldown reduction at all? Adding a significant amount of CDR didn't seem to do much for me. Moreover, it might be my imagination, but it actually appears that WoL casts faster if I slam the button rapidly rather than hold it down. 2. How is the damage split between the initial strike of the bell and the follow up? On the fire rune specifically, but I am kind of curious about the general sense. Is there a difference? Monsters actually struck by the bell seem to take more damage than those hit by the wide AoE and the damage seems to come in 2 distinct increments. 3. Does Wave of Light benefit from attack speed at all? Would a weapon with high base damage and low dps be better than a balanced weapon with a slightly lower base damage and high attack speed? 4. Is there any way to estimate the damage from WoL based on the DPS number on the inventory screen?Judicator5 08 May
03 May Primal Vengeful Wing reroll Question So I was rather lucky I suppose, my question is should I reroll the spirit regen? I am running typical firebell and could already do GR73+ though I am safely farming right now at G70 to get primal ancient weaponsShintenzu2 03 May
25 Apr change to Fire build? Need some help/advice please. I am currently running my monk with the Sunwoko(Sp?) set and geared as described on Icy-Veins but.. I barely finished GR72 with about 20 seconds remaining after having to port to town and repair completely destroyed gear all red, Started hitting a wall at GR70 of dying continually during the rift, but I need to clear GR75 to get the conqueror title. I saw this site: and wondering if I should try to swap some gear, cubed powers etc or is just being only 600ish Paragon points what is holding me back? I got some help in some rifts the other night from a guy running what appears to be a variation of the firebell version and he had crazy damage, but also 900 some Paragon. Looking for helpful ideas here as I am kind of stuck and do not know how to proceed. I have heard of people clearing GR110 which must be how you can get legendary gems up to 90?? but ...maybe just complete lack of gameplay skill.. so, any helpful advice would be appreciated. I would link my Monk Shallamar's profile but I do not know howValkii2 25 Apr
11 Apr Advise needed in regards to Epiphany Hello fellow monks, I seek advice if I should go all out on cooldown reduction or not with my Sunwuko build. Here's my Monk Korabas: (Third slot in the cube is Ring of Grandeur, not sure why it doesn't show) As you can see I'm playing Hardcore so please keep that in mind. ;-) My highest rift currently is 88 and I'm confident that I will be able to push higher, hopefully without dying. My question now is, should I try to keep Epiphany up 100% of the time? I could switch Magefist in the cube to Leorics Crown, to increase the cooldown reduction from my socketed helmet. Also, I could switch out the passive Sixth Sense for Beacon of Ytar. Is that a good idea? Seems to me, that I would be getting a lot but that I also give up a lot. My problem now is, that in Hardcore experimenting is a bit tricky and experimenting on a lower GR would not necessarily reflect what I would experience when doing 86+ (which for me is high ;) ). Oh, and I know about Witching Hour, CoE, F+R Generator and Zeis. I just prefer the more laid back playstyle with the alternatives I chose. I'm not aiming for the Top100 or anything like that anyway.Logros3 11 Apr
03 Apr Seeking for advice to pass G-rift level 20 Hello, I'm a dummy player and just trying to do seasonal for the first time ever in my life. And I almost get all the seasonal objectives complete apart from this one : Complete greater rift level 20 solo. I tried few times but I never make it in time.... I'm not sure if my paragon is too low or I put paragon points all wrong? or is it my gears? or skills or I'm just too dumb :/ So please give me some advice 'cause I don't wanna miss that cute teddy bear pet!! Here is the link to my profile : Thank you. I really appreciate your time here.Littleploy4 03 Apr

08 Mar Wave of Light Main Hand damage only or not? I've been trying to google my way to an answer for a while now, and I find claims that Wave of Light damage is only based on the main hand weapon damage, and others say it has changed and it now is alternating using both weapons, but not a single one seems to be backed up by any evidence as far as i can find at least. So is there anyone here who knows without a doubt what the damage is based on?Vandreren2 08 Mar

24 Jan Tempest Rush causing net teleport If there is a way to alter Tempest Rush so that it doesn't get interrupted by anything (with the exception of a Elite CC locking you in place) I'd appreciate it. Tempest Rush has a very frequent habit of making you "internet teleport" back to the last position you got a knock-back, as if there is a internet connection issue. Barbarian's Whirlwind doesn't have this problem as it is completely immune to knock-back. Really quite enjoyed Tempest Rush; hate the teleporting.odvolar0 24 Jan

05 Dec 2017 Uliana's ONE BLOW T13 Speed Build (2.6.1) Hey guys! ------- BUILD: -------- --------- VIDEO GUIDE: --------- 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 05 Dec 2017

24 Nov 2017 Inner Sanctuary Inner Sanctuary: A quite useful skill, that never seem to fit in, at least in most builds. I love the skill, but I can easily see why so many skip it. Here is my take, on some changes, that I think would make it (more) viable, and at least make players use it more often: Rework of the skill; Base effect: Create a runic circle …… for 6 sec ……. Reduce all damage taken by 55%. Cooldown 20 sec New base effect: Create a runic circle ….. for 5 sec …….. Reduce damage taken by 50%. Cooldown 18 sec. Not an all-new take on that base effect, just some small adjustments. Rework Runes: Sanctified Ground: Last 8 sec, the first 6 times a enemy tries to enter the circle, he will be pushed 10 ft backwards and take 75% weapon damage as holy. Safe Haven: When damaged to 10% life, allies and the monk himself, are granted damage immunity for 1 sec, as well as healed for 25% life. This effect has a 120 sec cooldown. Temple of Protection: This one we will keep. Intervene: Every sec Inner Sanctuary is active, allies and the monk himself, are granted a shield that absorbs up to 45.000 + 20% of the monks Health Globe Healing Bonus. Forbidden Palace: Instead of creating a circle, the monk binds himself with and ally. The binding last 6 sec. New legendary item: Shoulders: Inner Soul: Instead of having a duration and instead of being put on the ground, Inner Sanctuary will now be a toggle ability floating around the monk as he moves. The cost will be 6 spirit a sec. Result or at least the idea behind it (with the shoulders): Sanctified Ground: Semi defensive setup which will add a slight knockback, and a small damage effect = chance to proc items etc. Safe Haven: A good group and solo effect = an oh !@#$ I need to get out effect. Temple of Protection: This will be a permanent immune to control impairing effects ability, so there is a chance it will be way to strong. But then again, the place where diablo 3 is = extreme strong setup  :) Intervene: Adds a small buff to allies constantly, allowing for a good supportive setup. Forbidden Palace: Allowing for 2 players to be different places on the map, but sharing this good buff. This is, as said, my take on what could be done, with a fun ability, to make it more fun, stronger and perhaps more used. In most cases, you still need to stand close to the monk, so I honestly don’t think it’s too strong  :)Lathander0 24 Nov 2017

07 Nov 2017 Kyoshiro's Soul post patch? Anyone find this belt after the patch that seemingly makes it superfluous as per the changes in sunwuko's? I accidently salvaged mine and haven't found a new one in about 40 grifts (lvl 80) or through buying one by the corresponding 15000 shards or so. Somehow feels like they took it from the loot table?! The thing is, my witching hour is better for the pushing build, but the t13 speed builds are so much more relaxed with kyoshiro's. So am I wasting my shards and time or have I just been effing unlucky?Ruarigh1 07 Nov 2017
05 Nov 2017 A couple of questions! Hey, so Ive been level 70 for awhile and started going for the equipment listed at this site Now Im sure this requires a certain build to be most advantageous, so what exactly would that be? I also notice most Monk favour dual wielding over 2h, however Ive never been able to score higher dmg with two 1 hand weapons compared to using a 2hander. Has it something to do with spirit generation? Or do I just need better weapons? Is there a way to run into those treasure goblins more often? I never seem to be able to get the plans for the royal imperial gems and Im always on lookout for resources. My guess is that its completely random, but during some nephalem runs theres been an abundance of them, like a gazillion. Now, would that happen more often on higher torment level? Thank you :)Unisexbrian1 05 Nov 2017
06 Oct 2017 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: --- --- GR98 CLEAR: --- --- 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.. :)Angry0 06 Oct 2017
03 Oct 2017 Sunwuko decoys dealing low damage? Sunwuko 6piece description says that you spawn decoys which deal 500% * sweeping-wind-stacks damage. With Vengeful Wind's bonus you can get up to 10 wind stacks, which should amount to 5000% weapon damage. Unless I'm counting something wrong, it might be bugged: Below 200M damage? That's 5000%? Those decoys are pretty useless to be honest, unless just bugged. In case anyone's wondering, I have 40% fire damage bonus only, so it wouldn't get much higher with the fire rune. Any idea what's wrong?RUVINN5 03 Oct 2017

21 Sep 2017 Change Uliana's 2p bonus Could you please consider changing the Uliana's 2 piece set bonus? Since you are buffing this set I think this should get looked into (again). Right now we have to decide whether to use Mythic Rhythm and apply EPs manually or rely on applying EP through U2 bonus and take different passive. In my opinion U2 bonus is useless at the moment, since Mythic Rhythm is too good of a passive to miss it. Could you perhaps rethink your opinion on Mythic Rhythm not being applied by this set or rework the U2 bonus? Since this build relies a lot on cdr, maybe something to help with that? This would allow more flexibility with stats on gear.PieknyTomek1 21 Sep 2017
