Introduction

An engine converting Spirit generation into raw damage, the Shenlong's Spirit set absorbs the best of the Monk sets into a build that pummels the enemy with your fists alone. This control-heavy, sustain damage setup is available in a Greater Rift solo progression variation and a speed farming variation, accessible using the link below.
