Hi!

 

In all your builds you recommend the Paragon points priorities.

You usually say for the Core page to spend first on Strength/Dexterity and then on Life.

So what do i do?

When I reach 50 points in Strength, do I start putting on Life?

Or do I put on Strength all the way?

Question: The guide says to replace your mantra with Air Ally if you find the Crudest Boots, and to swap out Chant of Resonance for Unity for the extra damage, but how will you get the extra damage from Unity if you're not using a mantra?

Oh, good catch! I will correct this. In the place of this recommendation, keep the Chant and swap out Momentum for Unity, and replace Sweeping Wind in the active skills for Air Ally.

Is Taeguk still appropriate in the recommended gems section? It seems it's been deprecated on this patch.

The beginner guides are prime for revision, I'll be getting on that very soon! And your observation is correct, Taeguk has lost a bit of its position as a Monk staple, giving way to gems with less conditional triggers (Bane of the Stricken, Gogok of Swiftness, Esoteric Alteration, Bane of the Powerful).

The top of the guide refers to it being a WD guide, also there's no rune set on one of the skills at the top.

..along with the suggested fix from "Guest Myzt" above, I would also just like to add that, gambling for (Req'd lvl 8/9 Boots), as suggested in your guide, with a level 1 Monk toon,  does NOT yield, Crudest Boots,..., or any other lvl 8/9 required boots. ?

 In fact, I've spent over 2k in shards, and have got nothing but yellow(rare), and/or the blues. and yes even those are locked at higher lvl requirements, which is fine, but  but obviously useless.

I honestly had better luck, and gambled with much less shards, with my lvl 70 Monk, for Boots, Bracers.

 Patch 2.4.2 has likely changed something here, can you verify and/or change your guide accordingly?

If not, then what did I miss ?  :)

Thanks.

Guest Guest Who again

...after reaching 70 (in seaosn 7), and,  even with this Raiment set, (and because of DS) it's a very "gear" dependent build, meaning without gear like the Shenlong set, Lefevre's, Spirit Guards, RoRG, ..., and sadly, the very laggy/later season 7 leg gems, ..., u aren't goin' anywhere, 'cause you'll have no spirit  for DMG,  unless you mix-n-match with Inna's (ally tanks) into a semi-supportive build, to makeup for the extremely high gear dependency, and CDR/Spirit dependency of this specific Raiment build, and beyond.

 Maybe stick with the pre-70 skills/stats 'till you find ALL the req'd "dependent" gear.?

 ...sorry to say.

fab and a great help ty!

 

Just to point this out for you though:

5. Gems

Your armor and weapon sockets should be taken up by the highest tier Emerald gems you can afford at the time, while the helm is best filled by a Diamond gem for a boost to Cooldown Reduction. When you stumble upon jewelry with good primary stats and a socket, you should start dabbling into Legendary Gems. The Legendary Gems to consider for Demon Hunters

Are you able to finish up and get your 6-set? If not, I imagine you need to play to your gear's strengths. You're very durable, so run through the level and stack mobs for the biggest exploding palm you can. Take advantage of the Gungdo Gear! Cyclone strike could definitely help with stacking mobs.

@Blainie:

not yet.... but soon ;-)

forgot one item: The Crudest Boots (2. Mystic Ally)

- Crippling Wave

- Dashing Strike

- Mystic Ally (this one with the regeneration) 

- Cyclone Strike

- Exploding Palm

- Mantra of Retribution

 

with:

- 4x Set

- Crudest Boots

- Gungdo Gear

Sorry i like to optimise. i know its not worth really, because soon i have the 6. piece of my set. But until then... ;-)

I think you should be absolutely fine with that setup to clear until you get your 6-set!

Hello again ;)

 

thanks for your answer... iam on T8+ atm, its running fine. Set is full, everything ok. 

 

But: e.g. depth-diggers: the 100% damage effect of the trousers... how is that calculated?

 

1xxx% + 100% = 2000% = double damage

or:

1000% + 100% = 1100% = 10% more damage?

 

second or iam wrong? if second is true i think i should choose something else than depth diggers, 10% overall is not that much.

 

btw: thats the monk we are talking about: http://eu.battle.net/d3/de/profile/shAd-2781/hero/82795429 
(call for objective criticism)

 

edit: Offtopic Question: But whats the best monk set atm in your opinion? Have the other sets nearly complete too (ranking set 1 > set 2 = set 3 > set 4?)

The Depth Diggers are multiplicative (as far as I know), which means it would double the damage of the generators.

I would say the Generator build using the Raiment and Shenlong sets is the best for solo pushing rifts. https://www.icy-veins.com/d3/monk-shenlong-raiment-build-patch-2-4-2-season-7

For group play, it will be the Inna's/Raiment support build. https://www.icy-veins.com/d3/monk-inna-support-build-patch-2-4-2-season-7

Dropping by to confirm Blainie's comment on the multiplicative nature of Depth Diggers. They will double the damage you deal with resource generating attacks.

Build recommendations are on point too. :) Ranking-wise, I'd probably say Raiment > Sunwuko > Inna = Uliana - but the latter three are really close, and only Raiment coming ahead with an advantage.

I have a question: is it possible to obtain Gungdo Gear at level 70? I didn't acquired it so far.

ok, i got it

Glad to see that you got it, but for future users, yep. Your best bet is from Kadala, it's where I generally find mine each season!

      Diablo 3 players are getting some goodies from the Diablo Immortal launch, as a brand new set of wings and a pet are available to claim in the game for free!

      Diablo 3 celebrates 10 years today. Blizzard announced they're making Echoing Nightmare a permanent feature in the game and a mid-season buff will result in double bounties from now until Season 26 ends.
      You'll also receive double twice the Horadric Caches you would normally receive after completing 5 bounties.
      (Source)
      Exactly 10 years ago today, brave Nephalem arrived in the town of New Tristram to investigate a falling star. This discovery would give way to a divine ally and a quest to stop a sinister plot to destroy Sanctuary and the High Heavens. Even after the final blow was struck, and Diablo defeated, these same valiant Nephalem continued to protect those in need. We—and Sanctuary—thank you for your decade-worth of valor, dedication, and your vanquishing of endless nightmarish threats to have been birthed by the Burning Hells.
      Remember, this 10-year milestone for Diablo III was made possible by YOU, Nephalem, many of whom have spent countless hours demon-slaying, looting, and creating memorable moments to look back on. To show our undying appreciation for the support of more than 65 million Nephalem worldwide over the past 10 years, we have an exciting announcement for the Echoing Nightmare and will be providing a mid-season buff. But first, we want to thank you once more for celebrating the 10th anniversary of Diablo III with us!
      Echoing Nightmare Update

      Since Season 26 began, many Nephalem have sought to avenge their fallen allies in the Echoing Nightmare. We have received positive feedback around the Echoing Nightmare and are truly glad to see you’ve enjoyed battling the horrors of Nephalem’s past while gaining experience and powerful loot along the way.
      Therefore, the Echoing Nightmare will become a permanent feature in Diablo III. Creating challenging, new, and exciting end-game experiences is always top of mind for us, so we’re excited to be keeping this experience around for good. This experience will be available for year-round play. If you have not had the opportunity to try the Echoing Nightmare out yet, get a taste of what it entails from our Season 26 blog.
      Mid-Season Double Bounties Event

      The reward for hunting down some of Sanctuary’s most wanted just got a little sweeter! All bounties will be doubled from now until Season 26 ends. Here’s a breakdown of how you’ll have the chance to score more Legendary loot, such as the coveted Ring of Royal Grandeur.
      After completing all five bounties in an act, you will be rewarded with twice the Horadric Caches you would normally receive, as dictated by the difficulty level you’re playing on. Reward drop rates will remain unchanged during this event. But more caches mean more opportunities to obtain that essential piece of gear that will bolster your Nephalem’s build. For a refresher on the bounty-exclusive Legendary items that may be obtained from Horadric Caches, check out our Game Guide.
      There are many hardy foes peppered throughout Sanctuary for you to collect the bounty on—venture forth and dare to lay claim to the spoils!
      Immortalize Ten Years of Diablo III
      Diablo III will only turn 10 once. Adorn your wall with imagery forged from the Burning Hell’s finest artisans by getting the exclusive 10th Anniversary Diablo III artwork. Make haste, Nephalem, they’re HOT!
