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 two Greater Rift solo progression variations (the present one with the Raiment set and a Inna set variation that you can access with the link just below). We also have a speed farming variation, accessible using the link below.
