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.

Thank you for the heads up, will be fixed asap.

..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.

...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)

 

what do you think:

- 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. http://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. http://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!
