Guest Moshington

What would you replace gundago and molten get for if not playing in season? And would you still use exploding palm? If not, what would you use?

Why would want this with a socket before R-Gift? Just for the purpose of rolling it into any of the other stats? 

Say mine has

DMG

DMG%

DEX

VIT

Wave of Light %

 

Wouldn't I just roll the VIT into CDR and achieve the same thing? Then add socket with R-Gift.

Is there any reasonable end game monk build in Patch 2.2?

Correct, the socket recommendation is only for characters without a Ramaldni's Gift! :)

Hey! Great guide and I've been following it religiously ( as with most iceyviens guides! ). Was curiously as too what changes you would make gear wise with the new patch? And if you think the new dashing strike monk is better for higher rifts?

Cheers in advance!

Same question, and with the new 6 piece bonus, I'd like to ask if the crudest boots should be replaced by the Inna's set boots.

 

This guide is sadly out of date!

They should definitely not be replaced, as the allies do not take advantage of the Sunwuko set bonuses. Guide has been updated to reflect the change, but overall - a skill switch is all that's needed!

Great guide. I may be missing something, but if you have the Leoric bonus in Konai's Cube, does it stack with the equipped crown?

They don't stack, so that's definitely amiss.  There's also the section that explains the skill selection mentioning Sweeping Wind and that you should aim to keep it up, but the build listed doesn't have Sweeping Wind in any action slot.

I currently use Tzo Krin's Gaze with increased wave of light damage and allowing me to target where it is dropped. Since Leoric's Crown isn't stackable with the Kanai's Cube effect, should I keep this equipped rather than switch to the crown?

Yup, sorry about that. Several recommendations look a bit weird on the old pre-Cube builds, especially the builds that aren't considered top tier anymore and there's little investigation on the BiS options. I'll get the Sweeping Wind mention fixed.

Heya - something I would try instead is stick RoRG in the Cube, replacing it with Convention of Elements + Unity in the ring slots. Then try Cindercoat in the armor slot in the Cube, and deviate into the fire rune of Wave of Light for a Fire/Cold split. I hesitate to make a full revision of the build as the SWK set is bound for a rework in the upcoming 2.4 patch.

The Kanai's Cube recommendations are as follows: p4_unique_fist_102_demonhunter_male.png Kyoshiro's Blade for the weapon slot, 

 

LOL u doing it wrong!  Don't u realize that without  p4_fistweapon_norm_unique_02_demonhunter Vengeful Wind  the whole build is pointless cuz u trying to exchange 7*1500% extra dmg with 150+250% am i missed something?

This is weapon damage proc that you can definitely afford to lose, compared to the damage multiplication of Kyoshiro's Blade.

Would it be better to cube Torch and equip Kyoshiro's Blade and Vengeful Wind? Why or Why not?

The question I have is how do I keep up my stacks of sweeping wind without having Vengeful Wind in the cube?  I burn through the stacks so quickly dropping wave of lights that 3 doesn't seem like enough most times.  If I have 10 stacks I have a hard time generating enough spirit to go through the stacks fast enough.

 

Also if you aren't running a vengeful wind in the cube or on your person you don't get the benefit of the Inner Storm ruin if you can't keep it at 3 stacks or higher all the time.

 

Is there something I'm missing in this build?

The 6 set bonus does not multiply the 1500% by the number of stacks of sweeping wind you have. As long as you have 1 stack you get the 1500% damage boost. With proper management the extra 7 stacks with Vengeful Wind are unnecessary and the extra damage from Kyoshiro's Blade is more beneficial.

What would you replace Unity with when running with someone else?  I usually play with my fiance.

This build has been awesome! I too was looking for the Vengeful Wind but I noticed that only the 4 set benefits from it - not the amazing 6 set bonus. But I did not like having two air allies out. So, I decided to put my Cindercoat in the cube to reduce the cost of Wave of Light even more and put out my fire allies for 20% more damage. I also am using Blinding Flash for the 29% increased damage when it is up.

Im also trying to decide whether it would be better to cube the incense torch and dual wield the kyoshiros and vengeful. that way you would get all the bonuses, including the 10 stacks of sweeping wind.  the sheet damage would be less without the 2 hand, but i feel like the multipliers would work out better... am i missing something? pretty much my only question with this build.

The 6 piece bonus of SWK to the Wave of Light damage is not influenced by the Sweeping Wind stacks, and due to how Kyoshiro's Soul belt works, you will not be trying to have Sweeping Wind in range of enemies either.

      The Season of the Triune will launch next week alongside Patch 2.6.6 on August 23.
      Highlights
      Season 18 starts on August 23. In Season 18, players will benefit from the Power of the Triune buff, which gives all your abilities a chance when hitting enemies to spawn a circle that provides one of three random buffs. Note that only one circle can be active at a time. Triune of Love (Power): Players in the circle receive a 100% damage bonus while active. Triune of Determination (Resource Reduction): Players in the circle receive a 50% discount on resources spent while active. Triune of Creation (Cooldown Reduction): While standing in an active circle, any skills currently on cooldown come off of cooldown more quickly. 13 new legendary powers are coming in Patch 2.6.6. You can find more details in the patch notes below. There's a new legendary gem called Legacy of Dreams to make the Legacy of Nightmares (Season 17) buff more permanent. Beginning with Season 17, Blizzard began re-introducing previous Seasonal rewards and for Season 18, they decided to make Season 6 rewards return to the Season Journey. If you pre-purchased Spoils of War, Patch 2.6.6 includes a Mal'Ganis pet reward. Blizzard (Source )
      Season 18 begins August 23, alongside the latest Diablo III patch. Read on to learn more about the all-new Season of the Triune buff, the heap of brand-new Legendary powers, and a handful of crafted item reworks in store for Patch 2.6.6!

      New Season Theme
      Season 18 introduced the Season of the Triune, a call-back to an ancient cult forged over three millennia ago by the Prime Evils of the Burning Hells. Masquerading as three benevolent deities dedicated to Determination, Creation, and Love, the Prime Evils sought to infiltrate the hearts of men in a bid to tilt the odds in their favor in the ongoing Eternal Conflict. Ultimately defeated by Uldyssian during the Sin War, the remnants of the Cult of the Triune still operate today as the more well-known Coven, whom continue the work of Adria and Maghda even after their deaths.
      For the duration of Season 18, all players will benefit from the Power of the Triune buff, which will periodically summon circles around the battlefield that provide one of three random buffs:
      Triune of Love (Power): Players in the circle receive a 100% damage bonus while active Triune of Determination (Resource Reduction): Players in the circle receive a 50% discount on resources spent while active Triune of Creation (Cooldown Reduction): While standing in an active circle, any skills currently on cooldown come off of cooldown more quickly We wanted to try something different this Season, and especially wanted to provide a change to your gameplay from the very first moment you begin your journey. This buff alters gameplay from level 1 to level 70 and beyond, providing an enticing reason to move around the battlefield to leverage these powerful boosts. We’re looking forward to seeing how players utilize these ancient powers from their first level to their final Greater Rift push!
      Season 18 Cosmetic Rewards
      Beginning with Season 17, we began re-introducing previous Seasonal rewards to make them available to players who may have missed them the first time around. For Season 18, this means awards that were originally available from Season 6 are returning to the Season Journey.

      In addition to the Chest and Gloves slots of the exclusive Conqueror Set, players will be able to earn a series of portrait frames bedecked with the mysterious beauty of Blood Shards. A ghastly All Hallow’s pennant will also be available, allowing you to proudly proclaim your love for all things grim and creepy.
      Season Journey Rewards
      If you’ve been diligently slaying demons for the past few Seasons and reached Conqueror in the Season Journey each time, you’ve surely acc rued a few extra stash tabs. You’ll earn one additional tab each Season by finising the Conqueror tier, up to a maximum of five:
      Guardian of Sanctuary: Finish a level 70 Nephalem Rift on Torment XIII within five minutes Gem of My Life: Level three Legendary Gems to level 55 All I Do IS Win: Complete two Conquests this Season Disarm You: Kill Rakanoth at level 70 in under 15 seconds on Torment XIII difficulty Money Ain’t A Thang: Slay Greed on Torment XIII difficulty Take U There: Reach Greater Rift level 60 Solo Power Amplification: Use Kanai’s Cube to augment an Ancient Legendary item with a level 50+ gem Cubic Reconfiguration: Use Kanai’s Cube to reforge a Legendary item Seasonal Conquests
      Want to prepare your Conquest plan for Season 18? Here are the challenges you’ll face!
      Push your way to Greater Rift level 75 to complete Divinity/Lionhearted. On a Good Day/I Can’t Stop guides you to get your Legendary Gem grind on; level three Legendary Gems to 65 to complete this challenge! For the speedy, Speed Demon/Need for Speed requires the fastest nephalem to complete a Nephalem Rift at level 70 on Torment X or higher in under two minutes. For Curses!/Stars Align, pick any Cursed Chest event that requires killing monsters and defeat over 350 or more at level 70 on Torment X or higher. For the fiercest demon slayers, Boss Mode/World’s Apart is a speed challenge where you’ll need to eliminate the following bosses at level 70 and Torment X in under twenty minutes:
      The Skeleton King The Butcher Zoltun Kulle Ghom Cydaea Rakanoth Diablo Adria Queen Araneae Maghda Belial Siegebreaker Assault Beast Azmodan Izual Urzael Malthael Haedrig’s Gift
      Finally, the Class Sets rewarded for completing certain chapters in the Season Journey courtesy of Haedrig’s Gift have rotated once more. We’ve listed the available Sets below. For those new to Seasons, here’s how it works:
      Completing Chapters 2, 3, and 4 of the Season Journey will reward you with three of Haedrig’s Gifts. Each Gift contains a few pieces from one of your Class Sets. Players can only unlock one Class Set in this manner per Season across Hardcore and Non-Hardcore, so choose wisely!
      The set you will receive depends on the class of the character you’re playing when you open each Haedrig’s Gift. To collect a full Class Set, you’ll need to open all three on the same character.
      Here are the sets granted by Haedrig’s Gift in Season 18:
      Barbarian – The Legacy of Raekor Crusader – Armor of Akkhan Demon Hunter – Embodiment of the Marauder Monk – Inna’s Reach Necromancer – Pestilence Master’s Shroud Witch Doctor – Zunimassa’s Haunt Wizard – Delsere’s Magnum Opus
      Patch Notes
      Below you will find the patch notes for the most recent update for Diablo III, Patch 2.6.6. Changes from the PTR have been highlighted in RED.
      PATCH 2.6.6
      Note: All changes apply to all versions of Diablo III, including PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC unless otherwise indicated.
      General
      A pet has been added that will be available for players who pre-purchase Warcraft III: Reforged Spoils of War Edition (PC Only) Seasons
      The buff for Season 18, the Season of the Triune, has been added Triune's Will: All abilities have a chance when hitting an enemy to spawn a circle that gives a power. Only one circle can be active at a time. Triune of Love (Power): Players in the circle receive a 100% damage bonus while active Triune of Determination (Resource Reduction): Players in the circle receive a 50% discount on resources spent while active Triune of Creation (Cooldown Reduction): While standing in an active circle, any skills currently on cooldown come off of cooldown more quickly Developer Comment: The last couple of Seasonal buffs have been focused primarily on end-game content. We wanted to try something different this Season with a buff that was more beneficial to players regardless of where they might be in their Season Journey. Triune's Will can come into play as early as level 1 and continue to make an impact on your game experience from the beginning to the end of the Season, and we're looking forward to seeing how players leverage this ever-changing boost throughout their adventures! Developer Comment: In addition, we received feedback from players during the PTR about colorblind accessibility. We've changed one of the blue-tinted circles to a darker, green earth tone that should stand out a lot more for affected players. We greatly appreciate your feedback! Items
      Developer Note: There are additional specific notes below, but broadly for 2.6.6, we wanted to introduce a handful of new item powers targeted at two audiences: (1) certain classes with long-standing requests for balance/quality of life adjustments and (2) the broader player base for experimenting with Kanai's Cube. This means fewer class-specific new additions, but more additions that everyone has an opportunity to play with. We also experimented with making some of the craftable sets from Haedrig more appealing for fresh level 70's or players looking to maximize their farming runs. We hope to see some interesting new theorycrafting and tactics out of 2.6.6 and can't wait to see what the community does with this new loot! Updated Item Notes: There are a number of notes below clarifying the intention of certain item functionalities. In a couple cases, such as with Flavor of Time, the item wasn't behaving properly during PTR per our intentions (which has been fixed). For others, we just wanted to provide more clarity about exactly how these items behave. The Flavor of Time New Legendary Power: Pylon effects last twice as long. Note: Only wearers of this item gain this effect. This is intended. The Executioner New Legendary Power: Attacks will slay enemies with less than (5-10%) health. Note: This item's power does not work on followers. This is intended. Stone Gauntlets New Legendary Power: Getting attacked will slowly turn you to stone... (You gain 50% more armor, but your movement speed is reduced by 15% and attack speed is reduced by 20%. This effect stacks up to 5 times) PTR Update: This item now displays a buff icon and has a clearer in-game description. Thank you for the feedback! Note: Immunity to control-impairing effects can work against the reduced attack and movement speed penalties. This is intended. Echoing Fury New Legendary Power: Slaying enemies engulfs the wielder into a Frenzy. (Killing enemies increases your attack speed by 15% and movement speed by 5%. This effect stacks up to 5 times) PTR Update: This item's power now works on kill assists and pet kills. Thank you for the feedback! Squirt's Necklace New Legendary Power: While not taking damage, your damage is increased by up to 100% and damage taken is increased by up to 50%. PTR Update: This item now displays a buff icon. Thank you for the feedback! Messerschmidt's Reaver New Legendary Power: Reduce the remaining cooldown of one of your skills by 1 second when you slay an enemy. PTR Update: This item's power now works on kill assists and pet kills. Thank you for the feedback! Mortick's Brace New Legendary Item: Wrath of the Berserker gains the effect of every rune. Developer's Note: If you played during the Patch 2.2.0 PTR, you'll recognize this as an item that was later removed from the game before it went to live servers. At the time, Mortick's Brace gave too much power for a single item slot. However, the power curve of Diablo III has changed significantly since then and we're comfortable with bringing it back. Developer's Note: We're not done with Barbarians, either. However, this is a change that required less testing and could be easily added to 2.6.6, so rather than waiting for a larger batch of changes, we saw no reason to hold this one back. Spite Note: This item can be crafted from the Blacksmith and is not a normal loot drop New Legendary Power: Non-cleaving Gargantuans gain the cleave and chilling effects of the Humongoid rune. Legacy of Dreams New Legendary Gem: While you have no set bonuses equipped, every Legendary item you have equipped increases your damage dealt by 3.75% and reduces your damage taken by 2%. (Max level 99) Rank 25: This bonus is doubled for Ancient items. Developer's Note: The end game opened up significantly with Season 17's Legacy of Nightmare's buff (and the community was clear about how much these new options were appreciated), but wanted to make this addition a more permanent fixture in a more streamlined way than simply making it baseline. This Legendary Gem should open that path up even further and at more opportunities than just late game Greater Rift pushing. Crafted Sets Note: The following sets have been significantly revised from their existing level 70 counterparts. Items crafted prior to 2.6.6 will continue to exist in their old forms but will not be updated after the patch. In addition, after the patch, the old recipes will no longer be available to craft and all players will need to re-acquire these recipes by finding the plans again through Horadric Caches or by killing Odious Collectors. Sage's Journey A Belt has been added to this set. Haedrig the Blacksmith now automatically learns how to forge this set at Rank 12. Captain Crimson's Trimmings (2) Set Bonus Regenerates 6000 Life per Second Reduces cooldown of all skills by10% 20%. Now also reduces Resource Costs by 20% (3) Set Bonus Set bonuses have been replaced Damage dealt is increased by your total percentage of Cooldown Reduction Damage taken is reduced by your total percentage of Resource Cost Reduction Aughild's Authority (2) Set Bonus Set bonuses have been replaced Reduces damage taken by 15% Increases damage dealt by 30% (3) Set Bonus Reduces damage from elites by 15% 30% Increases damage against elites by 15% 30% Cain's Destiny (2) Set Bonus Attack Speed increased by 8% +50% Experience. (5.0% at level 70) (Moved from (3) Set Bonus) (3) Set Bonus When a Greater Rift Keystone drops, there is a 25% chance for an extra one to drop. Bug Fixes

      Q: When does Season 18 start?
      A: Season 18 begins Friday, August 23 at 5:00 p.m. PDT in North America, 5:00 p.m. CEST in Europe, and 5:00 p.m. KST in Asia. For time zone conversion, see this site.
      Q: When do Seasons go live for players on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch?
      A: Seasons go live for all console players globally Friday, August 23 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time, regardless of which regional version of the game you may have. Please note that Seasonal Leaderboards for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch are still separate by hardware platform.
      Q: When will Season 18 end?
      A: We are no longer providing anticipated end dates for Seasons. However, we are committed to keeping Seasons roughly three months in length (give or take a few weeks based on development needs) and will continue to provide a minimum of two weeks advance notice for when the Season will be ending.
      Q: When are the non-Seasonal Leaderboards being wiped?
      A: Non-Seasonal Leaderboards are tied to what we call “Eras,” each of which lasts about 6–12 months. The most recent era began January 8. For more information on Eras, please see this post.
      Q: What will happen to older Seasonal and Era records?
      A: Starting with Season 10, we removed old personal bests from Season 1. When Season 18 arrives, we will remove old personal bests from Season 9, and so on. We will be doing the same for personal bests from the previous Era when the next one goes live.
      Seasonal Leaderboard records are not being cleared and will remain archived both in game and on our website.
      Themed Seasons are continuing to evolve as we venture into the future, and we’re quite excited to see where this one leads. Are you looking forward to the Season of the Triune? How do you think you’ll utilize the powers the Triune will bestow upon you? Share your thoughts below and we’ll see you in Season 18!
      The Season of the Triune begins next week and here are the official Patch 2.6.6 notes.
