1. 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 (with the Raiment set and the Inna set), and a regular Rift farming variation, explained in that order.
