How to Play the Build: Skills and Rotation

Due to the utility focus of the set all the way until the 6-piece bonus, Inna's starting builds are a special case in terms of changing skills as you acquire the set pieces (either in chunks of two with the Haedrig's Gift, or piece by piece as you farm it normally).

At the earliest 2-piece bonus, no changes are recommended to the leveling and beginner 70 build outside of swapping Sweeping Wind Sweeping Wind Inner Storm Inner Storm for Mystic Ally Mystic Ally Air Ally Air Ally. The passive Spirit regeneration remains the same, and you remove the concern of keeping up Sweeping Wind Sweeping Wind stacks.

At the 4-piece bonus, you should make another simple swap — from Mantra of Healing Mantra of Healing Circular Breathing Circular Breathing to Epiphany Epiphany Desert Shroud Desert Shroud. This is due to the fact that the 4-piece Inna set bonus provides you with all four Mantras as baseline, allowing you to alter the build into your most powerful defensive buff. Equipped with Epiphany Epiphany, you should be well equipped to take down a Greater Rift level 20 for your third Haedrig's Gift.

At the 6-piece bonus, shift the build into its final form displayed above. Instead of the leveling and early game spender Lashing Tail Kick Lashing Tail Kick, you will be using Cyclone Strike Cyclone Strike — an Inna set centerpiece that directly synergizes with endgame pieces like Bindings of the Lesser Gods Bindings of the Lesser Gods and Lefebvre's Soliloquy Lefebvre's Soliloquy (both of which are high priority to farm and/or gamble).

Remember to apply the gearing strategies outlined in the general Monk itemization section from the beginner guide, especially regarding the top priority legendary for Inna builds &mdash The Crudest Boots The Crudest Boots.
