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.

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

1h U4+Inna 6 SSS viability ? Hey guys, I found a build on Diablofans that seems to be really fun to play : http://www.diablofans.com/builds/85502-uli-inna-sss-2-4-3 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 ?Lynàlia1 1h
7h Which build for the Thrill conquest? I've just levelled up a S9 monk and I'm wondering what's the quickest way to do the GR45 w/out set items conquest?Scourge4 7h
6d Wave of Light Monk So I made this monk http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/dancook-2348/hero/89781744 Based on this http://www.diablofans.com/builds/82248-2-4-2-swk-wol-speed-t13-updated Other than getting rest of ancient, better rolls and augments - any advice on the build, solid enough or should I consider changes? - I have switched to Mantra of Salvation with Agility, the damage boost was within 30 yards, and well i'm not sure if that counts when I'm trying to make the most of the Zei gem. Just complete GR65, still looking for ancient weapon - GOT IT :)dancook0 6d
14 Feb Uliana's Set Dungeon - What you ask is impossible Hi there, how the hell are you supposed to master Uliana's set dungeon, especially killing all monsters in time? I have rather good equipment, 125% run speed, perfected the build, dashing strike, In-Geom, have no problem killing the groups, but I always run out of time about 2/3 to 3/4 through the dungeon. It seems impossible to kill all of them, even if I don't waste time pulling the groups together... Am I missing something? Thanks for any tips! Cheers morphMorfex31 14 Feb
14 Feb Inna's or Rainments? Is Rainments the only endgame set in this game? Started my Monk a little while ago and could use some advice on where to go. I know Rainments is the leaderboard favourite. Please look at my monk in my profile (Dobrila) and give me some advise? Thanks guys and gals. Cheers :)Gergaroth9 14 Feb
11 Feb Generator monk - loss of attack speed I'm playing Raiment 6 generator monk with Shenlongs. After reaching full spirit I obviously start losing spirit, but sometimes I also start losing attack speed. As a result I don't generate enough spirit and I die.. Any idea why the sudden loss of AS? This is my build: http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/MxBad-2523/hero/20076611MxBad1 11 Feb
08 Feb Madstone vs Gungdo gear All I see is EP monks running Gungdo gear, I don't get why so many P400+ run it when you have can have madstone in cube. Is there something besides that rare occasion when you run in to huge packs that Gungdo is just slightly better than madstone? Madstone works with other EP monks and Madstone don't require you apply EP beforehand so you can open with a SSS to get that (3,0-3,5%*14) dmg reduction and still cause dmg. Is it just to get that perfect Spriit Guards 40% bonus? True Madstone is very rare but in the end I find it the better modifier tell me if I am missing something besides when facing huge mobs that Gungdo is slightly better.Vik18 08 Feb
07 Feb 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 Robrobdylan2 07 Feb
01 Feb Holy dmg Raiment???? Why not Holy dmg for Raiment build? Basically exactly the same but holy dmg. Doesnt the mantra that gives you 101% and 202% extra dmg activate or is it because of the taunt from barb?MacWazzy0 01 Feb
01 Feb Swamp Land Waders Hey guys, anyone here who can enlighten me? :) I got nonancient Swamp Land Waders with +17fire dmg. Tried all possible combos, reforging, upgrading rares and buying with shards on my wd... No luck getting ancient ones! So my question is, are they still bis for LoN monk LTK, even as nonancient or are any other ancient ones bigger and better upgrade until i get SLW ancient ones? CheersNeRO2 01 Feb

26 Jan Youre thoughts on this build. Youre thoughts on this build. Inna + envious blade http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Irineras-2819/hero/6252674 I am not sure if this is even working, sofar it needs really big density levels. Would like comments on envious blade with pain enhancer. Not my other gear ( still farming ancients) Allso tried broken promisses instead of band of rue chambers not much difference. Not the best english but hopefully you get what i mean. Greetz!Irineras0 26 Jan

21 Jan Attack -> Teleport I don't understand why and how my monk teleports. Of course, when I use dash the monk dashes across the screen (or more often does nothing since I'm out of stacks). I understand dash. Sometimes, when using normal attacks my monk teleports to the target; sometimes he doesn't. Sometimes when I fight the monk teleports away from the fight even if there is no target there, and sometimes he doesn't. Last I experienced it was when using crippling wave, but I've seen it with other skills as well. So, my question is basically, how does the "normal-attack-teleport" work? Why do I sometimes teleport to the next target and sometimes not?Ophe2 21 Jan
20 Jan MYSTIC ALLY build, any chance? pls... as a topic said, any chance for that build to be viable? i'm really new as a monk, so i need all your help and advice. I really like the mystic ally build with Palm variation but im stuck in GR65. I make lot of error for sure and my gear isnt nice... Need your help guys, ty all ps if you my profile, the correct build is with palm instead of sanctuary. Bye (sorry for bad english, i'm learning...)Conte0 20 Jan

So I am wanting to know what does more damage including runes I am debating this with my roommate as he leans to MoC and I use MoR.

30 Nov Macro a button to be pressed once hi guys, i'm playing genmonk in 4man setup this season. In my eternal quest to maximise my damage i found out when i use dashing strike (bound to 4) i sometimes dash twice or thrice. this way im losing more spirit then i want to, and results in dpsloss. Is there a way to macro my key to be pressed once? using a g110 logitech keyboard.Koelkast0 30 Nov

28 Nov Ah, can't master dungeon, giving up on season Dang, I tried to see it sporty, but I can't stand it anymore. Neither Uliana's nor Monkey Garb I can master in time.

You got me there, Sirs, giving up on the whole Journey, obviously.Tamyndris6 28 Nov
22 Nov Top 1 monk LON LTK build query Does anyone have his build mechanics? I am curious seeing he stacks CDR and not a single RCRYunaKim1 22 Nov
11 Nov Blizzard, do you even consider Ulianas Set dungeon fun? I'm currently trying to solve the Ulianas set dungeon but the dungeon has way to much RNG. If you get really lucky, mobs cluster almost perfectly so that hitting 21 mobs is no problem at all - if you get uber-lucky you almost have all the mobs at one spawn (I killed like 54 mobs at once but the rest of the dungon only had 2-3 mobs nearby ...). This dungeon is just anyoing. Draging mobs from one side to the other (with large gabs in it) is NOT fun, even more when you see that you hit like 18-20 mobs even after carrying them arround for 40 seconds ... The mobs are to slow which requires you to constantly cyclone them. If they are a bit to far away they just return to their position. On top of that, the slightest fire dmg, which can hit you randomly, ends the trial. Almost any video I have seen doing the dungeon in master mode hit the last mob within the last second - there is almost no wiggle-room or buffer. Set dungeon, especially on master difficulty, should be challenging - but not ridiculously luck-based and frustrating. On top of that the dungon is way to large for the given amout of time and the requirement to constantly carry those mobs arround. So, please change this trial as in its current form this is everything but fun.Rovo18 11 Nov
08 Nov Quality of Life - Sun Wuko,Armory suggestions QoL Sunwuko: Kyoshiro's Soul - the usual + "whenever you cast sweeping wind it now starts with 3/max stacks" Reasoning: for the bell monk I like how the belt works but for the odd moment when you are in a crowd and the wind drops - sometimes there is no space big enough too get away from enemies to start again. The possibility of dropping is great for gameplay so that you have to move but if it drops you are exposed for a sec anyway and you have the mana cost as a penalty. Same goes for flying kick - should help alleviate some of the troubles with running way around rift bosses without taking the mechanic that forces you to move or wait for spirit once in a while. Armory: don't know if it is still possible to work in but it would be great if there was an indicator for each saved build that shows the max grift and time you did with it. Does not have to be for the leaderboard but just for yourself to be able to compare what you can do with the different sets/buildsRuarigh0 08 Nov
08 Nov Laws of Seph Spirit Stone Still In Game? Hi Monks. I recently returned to D3 and need only the Seph hat (spirit on flash) to compete my LTK phys monk, however despite using over 2500 mats upgrading rare spirit stones, and spamming thousands of shards at Kadala - I just can NOT get a Seph hat! I've been using Kekegis as a substitute but with 51% CDR it's nowhere near as good and I'm struggling to progres much past G rift 67....

06 Oct Gear check and advice Hey guys, Have been making a monk as my second character and have been having a load of fun with it. Tried the LTK build with no gen skill and just found myself too squishy and I'd suddenly lose SW stacks and get instagibbed. So I switched to an LTK build with the way of a hundred fists and found it to be much more forgiving. Have pushed up to GR 72 with my current gear. Now obviously I am lacking ancients and augments, but is there anything I should change immediately on my gear? What should be my main focus for my next upgrade? Am planning to reforge the WH to get a better CHD roll, then continue to reforge weapons to get better damage, but what should I be spending my blood shards on?

22 Sep Inna's Gen, Uliana's or a mix? Hi All, My R6 monk is squishy as hell at the moment (see profile) and doing any GR's of significance (60 and above) is a real pain. I am therefore thinking about changing the spec a bit, awaiting some gear upgrades. I know that last season, the inna's generator build was pretty good in terms of damage and survivability, has that changed somehow for this seaon? (apart from inner sanctuary as a damage buff). I have also seen a I6+U4 build, using Inna's to buff the EP damage, but then I will lose the shenlong set/damage... How do you guys think the 2 compare?ZTeeVeR0 22 Sep

Before I was playing healmonk, but now I keep hearing about this EP support monk. I have tried to look up anything about it on the Interwebs, but there is not really much.

You can check it out here: https://youtu.be/s2rkTPEe_Tg Been playing a lot with Quin's awesome SWK build and Davlok One's Kick monk, and wanted a cold variation since I really like to freeze stuff. I recorded the video on GR65 because some players record their video on a solo T13(=GR60), and forget that monsters have much more health in a 4 players T13. Hope you enjoy it! :)DarthKitty2 05 Sep
03 Sep reflect damage issues with LTK proc i recognized lately, that i was dying without knowing why..so i just saw monster affixes when it happened again and it seems like ltk "gyana na kashu proc" kills me like instant..i first thought it is just not enough toughness since it is already 78 (now 83) grift, but i encountered it even in public games on t13 it just procs my nde after some fireballs and then im dead..i started dodging all reflect packs at the moment as it is the only way i can progress, but i wonder if it is intended? i got like 2200 phys res and a string with 28% melee reduce (i believe reflect is melee damage i read somewhere) and 31k loh via 1 weapon and paragon can anyone help me on that, anyone else experiencing this? is there a solution except dodging all elites even on 65+ grift?? thx in advance :)th0r1 03 Sep
03 Sep Monk Sweeping Wind won't go away! I posted this on the console section but I thought maybe someone might know what is going on: Do I have a glitch? On the Xbox one version I have a Monk using Sweeping Wind and I press "Y" to activate the Sweeping Wind. The circle of fire circles around me and it is supposed to go away after 6 seconds. It never goes away. The green cooldown bar starts to go down but then jumps back to full every 1/2 second or so. It never goes below 80% full. I unequipped it, changed runes, restarted etc.. and when I do and then press "Y" to activate it then it appears and never goes away. WHAT IS GOING ON?EvilCalvin10 03 Sep
28 Aug Set dungeons should not be about luck - Uliana Blizzard, if you want people to do set dungeons please don't make them so frustratingly dependent on spawn luck. Set dungeons are supposed to be about using set abilities and one's skill in doing so effectively. Who thought it was a good idea to make a dungeon that has nothing to do with skill nor set abilities but pure luck? Any moron can clear the map if it spawns even half decently. But no, 1 guy here, 2 there, 5, half a mile gap, 9... Can't take fire damage? Have these mobs that spawned on a fire grate. It is literally impossible to complete if the mobs don't spawn well. Every time you enter a set dungeon you should have the opportunity to complete it first go if you know what you're doing and how to go about it. I have done all set dungeons for Demon Hunter and Monk and I can honestly say none of them were luck dependent aside from Uliana. I loathe the thought of doing any further set dungeons as bad as that one. It's enough to make a person rage quit a class. I honestly don't want to play Monk anymore after that experience. Goodness forbid I ever have to use Cyclone Strike again.CrimsonFox3 28 Aug
28 Aug Wave of light... : / Can some one please just help with this.... I use the 1-shot Sunwuko build (or a version depending) and for some reason the Wave of light does little to NO damage some times.

I run away and come back and still it's 50/50. It's not fun with CoE rotating Fire and nothing happens...Luchen15 28 Aug

24 Aug New monk Shelong set question Hey all, I'm puzzeled & need your help! I started a monk for the first time two weeks ago so forgive if I am doing something really stupid. My question is: is there a point in having more than one primary (generator) skill, aside from the "combination strike" passive (& the damage increasing/attackspeed primary runes)? Here is the situation: I'm running 5 innas (with Rorg), 2 Raminets & the shelong fist set. Strangely enough, if I use two primaries I am clearing grifts consistently faster than if I add EP (with any rune) & Gungdo's bracer (explosive palm spreading on mob death). I am merely applying one EP per mini fight, so unless I am missing some fundamental game mechanic, I must be doing something very strange. If no combination mechanics are functioning, my only explanations include less Flying Dragon procs (in cube), less consistent use of cyclone, or bilzzard making mob density less in over 25 grifts for one ability than the other (???).ZulFury1 24 Aug
