How to Play the Build: Skills and Rotation

The Sunwuko starting build is a natural continuation of the fresh level 70 build. The fresh level 70 build is specifically created not to require any specific legendary items, and the Sunwuko set from Haedrig's Gifts alone is quite possibly the best augmentation to a Sweeping Wind Sweeping Wind plus Lashing Tail Kick Lashing Tail Kick combo build. Consult the previous section for specific tips on skill selection and gameplay with the build. In order to transition to a late game-oriented spec using the same set, we have a rough list of high priority items to obtain, as well as a link to the build they pertain to.
