Passive Skills

This build is specifically created for The Thrill conquest (complete a Greater Rift 45 Solo without any Set items equipped).

The build mimics the staple Lashing Tail Kick spec, and simply excludes the LoN set rings. You will Dashing Strike Dashing Strike from one large engagement to another, drawing enemies in with Cyclone Strike Cyclone Strike and roundhouse kicking them to death with Lashing Tail Kick Lashing Tail Kick. Your more active source of Spirit restoration comes from pops of Blinding Flash Blinding Flash Replenishing Light Replenishing Light, while Epiphany Epiphany provides passive regeneration and survivability in the background.

In your gear, focus on items that provide Fire Damage and a healthy balance of Cooldown and Resource Cost Reduction. The vital part of your equipment pertains to LTK bonuses — Scarbringer Scarbringer, Rivera Dancers Rivera Dancers and Gyana Na Kashu Gyana Na Kashu. It will also be very helpful to equip Lefebvre's Soliloquy Lefebvre's Soliloquy and Cindercoat Cindercoat, and cube The Laws of Seph The Laws of Seph and Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac. The remaining suggestions are merely helpful, but will not make or break the run.

Properly allocated Kanai's Cube choices and decently leveled legendary gems will all but trivialize The Thrill conquest. Do not neglect them.

1.1. Wave of Light Variant

Note that depending on your currently available items, you can also make an easy alteration to this build, to a Wave of Light Wave of Light version. Both LTK and WoL have a great fire-based rune, so exchange Vulture Claw Kick Vulture Claw Kick for Wave of Light Wave of Light Explosive Light Explosive Light. In the utility skills, you will simply replace Cyclone Strike Cyclone Strike with Mystic Ally Mystic Ally Air Ally Air Ally, Blinding Flash Blinding Flash with Sweeping Wind Sweeping Wind Inner Storm Inner Storm, and the Relentless Assault Relentless Assault passive with The Guardian's Path The Guardian's Path. For items, either equip an Incense Torch of the Grand Temple Incense Torch of the Grand Temple, or cube it and wield a Kyoshiro's Blade Kyoshiro's Blade and Crystal Fist Crystal Fist combo. Having the dedicated WoL legendaries Tzo Krin's Gaze Tzo Krin's Gaze and Pinto's Pride Pinto's Pride will be immensely helpful, and The Crudest Boots The Crudest Boots on your feet will make resource management a breeze. The remainder of your skill, gear and gem selection can duplicate the suggested LTK setup.
