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 (http://eu.battle.net/en/community/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. The Diablo III forums are for discussion of topics directly related to Diablo III The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topics not related to Diablo III, Battle.net 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

2d Rainment DS Speed farm monk So I recently created this build right God Monk from Quin0s guide right, but I am literally doing almost no damage in T10 Nephalem rifts. I don't know why, but I just dash like 5 times over enemies to kill them. Migght any one help me out here please ?TheDart1 2d
07 Nov 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
05 Nov A couple of questions! Hey, so Ive been level 70 for awhile and started going for the equipment listed at this site http://diablo.somepage.com/popular/items/monk#total 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
12 Oct 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.Angry0 12 Oct

Superior build of season 6 is back in patch 2.6.1 with buffed Uliana, Fist of Azz and Spirit Guards. Binding of the Lost also gives 20% more damage reduction now! PS: i also realized that during 2.4.2 , 2pc palms were fixed to proc area damage, so you now only need manual EPs for Mythic Rhythm. -------- GR95 Clear Demo: https://youtu.be/1zJnxaHwqEU -------- Some GR100 attempts: https://youtu.be/Z5Nn0gfX2EMAngry0 11 Oct

06 Oct 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.. :)Angry0 06 Oct
03 Oct 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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUm4MKWbcFQ 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

21 Sep 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
14 Sep Help with my Monk hello, my monk has pretty good stats on paper but it just seems to do really !@#$ty against elites and rift guardians. I ahve put a bunch of time into my monk and it's giving me a really tough time 2.4m dmg and it still isnt getting the job done. i just made a DH a few days ago with basic gear, very low gems and he just cleared a gr70 easily with only 800k dmg, my monk took so much more time to even get close to that point. I have tried raiment set but thats even more glass canon than I am willing to play. I would appreciate any suggestion to changing my setup for monk so that I can do higher rifts with him https://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/LOLingBuddha-1867/hero/99312777LOLingBuddha3 14 Sep

04 Sep Gen Monk - questions to help go past GR72 Hello people, hope everyone is doing great. I've gotten back to D3 fairly recently, used to play a fair bit at release, then again around s4-s5ish, then stopped. My question: What is happening past GR70 that prevents me from going up. Lack of proper itemization on gear, lack of paragons, lack of skill? I've managed to clear Paragon71 and get stuck on 72 because I die somewhat frequently, to the point where it cost me the rift. For reference, I clear 70 in 7 minutes on my first try after doing 67 previously. ------- - Is it true that I shouldn't worry yet about area damage, rather just focus on toughness? - I swapped a bunch of +280 emeralds in my chest/pants for diamonds (temporarily) and it is not helping. - I swapped a witching hour with OK rolls for this string of ears, and it isn't helping. - I know some of my gear doesn't have any secondary resist, rather +all res. Is that a huge downside? enough to prevent me going past 72? - I went CDR on helm over the previous +23% life because the +23% life didn't matter, I was still dying. - One thing I noticed is that I have ZERO recovery almost. I'm sitting at: 0k Life per sec 8k Life per hit 17k Life per kill 0k Life per spirit spent 22,500 Globe bonus. The 4% per hit from simplicity's strength is basically all my regen, as well as a very lacking Breathe of heaven. What can I do better?Reckoner1 04 Sep
04 Sep Raiment 4 piece bonus is bugged The 4 piece Raiment of a thousand storms bonus seems to be bugged. 1. When I have 2 charges of dashing strike and full spirit, DS consumes 75 spirit, instead of using the charges first. 2. When I Have 0 charges and 75+ spirit I cannot use the spirit to use dashing strike. 3. When I have 1 charge and 75+ spirit dashing strike uses 75 spirit and charge remains 1, it should become 2 after spending the spirit to use DS.RoMe1 04 Sep

06 Aug When does a monk become a supporter? I'm playing Diablo with my wife and I like the monk a lot. My question is, when does the monk takes the role of a supporter in groups? Is it already good when you play grouped like we do (2 players) or is it more when you start 2+ (min 3 player) ? And from there in support, any good link to support build I could become familiar with? All help is very much appreciated.Daemonia1 06 Aug
06 Aug Raiment of a Thousand Storms set bugged? The six-piece bonus reads as: "Spirit Generators increase the weapon damage of Dashing Strike to 12500% for 6 seconds, and Dashing Strike increases damage of Spirit Generators by 1250% for 6 seconds" I've noticed something wrong when using Dashing Strike (DS) to boost spirit generator (SG) damage. SG damage is NOT boosted when DS doesn't hit any enemy or breakable object. Is this correct? The set description doesn't specify that DS needs to actually hit something. It's been quite annoying when my DS lands me right in front of an enemy without hitting him, and then I try punching with SGs and find I'm doing no damage.ACE0 06 Aug

20 Jul Cant have enough DPS Hi Guys, When we do Rifts i see many player just going straight while killing everything on t13. But when it comes to me I feel like hitting a tree, especially on elites. I read many guides , i believe that I made a good gear but still... I can farm T10 bounties very easy, but when it comes to t13 and GR70+ I cannot do anything on solo/multiplayer. Could you please check my gear and suggest? https://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/uur-2283/hero/94962428 Or monk doesnt have such dps and it is just tanker? Thanks.uur3 20 Jul

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! :(Rockboy1 04 Jul
02 Jul Inna's pets or Inna's generator? So I might be a bit behind the meta on this, but I decided season 10 would focus on the monk. Having read a few guides, it seems the options for Innas are either a pure pet-focused build, or a Shenlongs generator build. I'm interested to hear from people who have played either, or both: what the builds are like ITO GR pushing, speed farming and playstyle in general. Any input welcome Here is where I'm at, if anyone is interested: https://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/GRoy-2758/hero/91319629GRoy4 02 Jul
26 Jun GUIDE: Real DPS. What's yours? So, after testing with some friends, I came up with conclusions that paper DPS shown in the profiles is quite misleading. We tried to find out what's our effective DPS by facerolling Azmodan at MP3 and timing ourselves. In a two player party (your friend takes the time from you moment you hit Azmodan the first time), Azmo has about 22.5m health. If u try it on yourself, he has 13m health. I need about 20 seconds to take him down with 22.5m health, meaning I do about 1.100k damage per second on a single target. Paper DPS = 111k. Actual DPS = 1.250k Indications so far: Mantra of Conviction - Overwave: it is.. very strong. When choosing gear focus rather on a choice with more resistances/armor/vitality and lose some DPS, if the opposite way around with focus on dexterity and attack does make you switch to Mantra of Evasion or Mantra of Healing. Bonus against Elites, Elemental Damage and +to skills: you will never see those numbers on the paper, but they make a hell of a difference. One example. Let's say you are a 100k monk. You are choosing between rings, rare one and Unity. All stats are better on the rare one and it gives you 2k more DPS compared to unity. But the Bonus to Elites in not considered, which is 4%. That 4% means 4k extra damage. Unity takes the cake. Another example is Stone of Jordan. To understand how strong it is, remove a ring from your character and see how much DPS you lose. On a 100k character this is usually around 15-20k DPS. Good rolls of SoJ make u add amounts around 40-45% Total damage. This is around 35k DPS. Knowing your skills and gear: most of you know already all the tricks, but some don't. Some useful general tips are: pop Breath of Heaven as soon as possible for the extra damage. Pop Blinding Flash before activating Sweeping Wind to activate it with max available DPS. If you play SSS, fill your Spirit pool and then pop in sequence Blinding Flash, Mantra of Conviction and the SSS in a quick series. Having enough LoH/LS will...increase your real DPS, in fact. It is not that evident with Azmodan in MP3, because he doesn't represent a threat, but on higher difficulties and on elites/ubers, having enough life regeneration makes u fight without interruptions, dealing damage all the time. If u have to kite for a breather, you don't do damage. And lose real DPS, in fact. What is your real DPS?Gatsu46 26 Jun
23 Jun Inna's set dungeon - need help Hi guys, My problem is that my mystic allies kill everything before I can unleash them. So it's almost impossible to master the dungeon. I understand set dungeons are fixed to around T4 difficulty, which makes it difficult if you progress past that difficulty for this particular set. Currently I can clear all enemies with about a minute to spare without getting frozen so time's not an issue nor is killing all the enemies. Please see my character "Draken" in my profile. I feel like I need to dumb the build down a bit to get through this achievement. Is there a trick to this? Please advise. Thanks in advance. Cheers :)Gergaroth7 23 Jun

I want to share with you all secrets about solo build for pushing leaderboard. This guide includes all actual builds. I will try to give you information how to realize your potential (gear, paragon, gems and etc) and reach the best result! I will visit this forum to answer any your question and expand this guide.

12 Jun Oculus Ring/Follower/Mystic Ally question Hi guys, Quick question. I have an Oculus Ring on my Templar. If I stand in the yellow ring cast on the ground will my mystic allies receive the buff as well, or just my attacks? I've noticed a huge damage increase (I think it's around 76% on my ring) but I can't tell if my allies are getting the buff too. Cheers :)Gergaroth1 12 Jun
10 Jun Epiphany teleports with spells It sometimes happens - often in very inconvenient moments - that I teleport to my target when casting wave of light while epiphany is running. As I understand it that shouldn't happen because epiphany ports when you use a melee attack against a target that is out of range. For a wave build that's rather bad cause I want to keep as much space between my target and myself. I can't even be sure to avoid it by placing the wave on an empty place because when a mob runs across that place I still get teleported sometimes... Any ideas? :)Amarillis1 10 Jun
07 Jun Tips to improve this build Hello all I'm currently trying an Inna's Gen build and I can't get past GR65 without struggle. I know i might need better gear. specially on my Unity and my fist weapons. I'm not getting easily killed, but I just can't cause enough damage. Any tips on what to aim first on farming and rerolls? https://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Siggard-1175/hero/87384480Siggard7 07 Jun
02 Jun Early level 70 S10 Monk help needed https://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Gleuf-21539/hero/93429056 Hi guys, Compared to most people here I'm a complete noob. Tried to read as much as possible, but not really getting anywhere. Im still battling to get my seasonal set reward, but I notice my build currently just doesnt cut it. Torment IV is a bridge too far, but I need it to defeat the bosses to get my reward. Please help on improving my build, I would really appreciate it. oh yes, and please don't make it too technical......as I said....quite a noob.Gleuf1 02 Jun

13 May Where do I go from here? Hiya folks, Looking for some help on how to progress a bit. I've messed about with D3 for a while but only "really" started having a proper go at it with the start of the new Season - predominantly solo. I've focused on my monk initially (please see profile) and stuck with an Inna Pet build I found on Icy Veins. I'm at the point I can clear Rift 70 in about 12 minutes - but I'm damned if I can get further at the moment. I'm presuming it's a case of farm, farm, farm and upgrade everything to Ancient, then when do I augment - and when do I focus on leveling my own gems (sitting at level 70 just now). I've tried trawling through various guides, which are great, but not really finding any specific "what's the right answer" in terms of mixing up bounties, rifts, and Grifts. Any help, or maybe guides I've missed greatly appreciated. ThanksWildWolf2 13 May

06 May Help appreciated I started off S10 as a WD, got my season set pieces and turned out I wasn't a huge fan of the playstyle. I want to roll a monk, but I'm quite concerned on how I'm going to get my set pieces since I can't do the season challenges anymore. Much appreciated.JiangXun1 06 May
02 May SWK LTK STACK MANAGEMENT ISSUES Cross-posting from the US forum - I hope that doesn't break any rules! Hi guys - relative n00b when it comes to monks, playing one in S9 and going SWK LTK since it seems the most obvious choice. Best GR clear at this stage is 63 and profile is here: http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/robdylan-2219/hero/87275371 I'm having major issues with SW stack management (and it seems worse since I swapped out BotP for Gogok). I absolutely burn through stacks whenever I'm in a tough fight at anything above T11 and the concerning thing is that even though I can see crits happening, my stack count does not seem to increase. The only way to get stacks back is to DS out of range and let KS do its thing - frustrating to say the least. Now I realise that there is only a % chance to gain a stack when you crit, not a 100% guarantee, but that % seems to be pretty low. What could the answer be to my problem? More CHC? It's already at 49.5% with Paragon, but I guess I could push it up a few points with some rerolls. I have IAS on both gloves and one ring - is it possible my attack speed is too high? That tends to work against the logic of including Gogok though.... is there a magic number for IAS in this build and am I perhaps above it? Perhaps the answer is LTP.... in which case, more than happy to take that on board. Any feedback appreciated! Thanks Robrobdylan6 02 May
