Is there a reason why Madstone is not used on the build?  It applies exploding palm and 6 set detonates it.

The guides keep saying to run 'Unity' combo - but I frequently use this built with a DH friend.. is Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac the best choice in place of Unity when running with others? Or is there a better suited monk ring to use?

Given the self application of exploding palm in this build.  Why waste your mluse button on it.  Youll never apply it via a click.  Its far more intuitive to put it on four and cyclone on the mouse.  Makes your hotbars cleaner by reducing them from 4 to 3 and put both primary skills on the mouse.

For speed farm variation, for season 16 you can opt to use Madstone for helm as you only need 5 pieces of Uliana for 6 set and use Nemesis Bracers in the cube.

So my question is why use lions fist? To me, it seems like the only thing Seven sided strike is used for is to detonate the EP. which then explodes and spreads. Are the seven additional strikes really a key part of the build?

Is there a reason I even need Exploding Palm slotted for this build?

Yes, there is. The strongest rune for Exploding Palm is the Impending Doom rune. If you don't slot EP with ID selected, you won't get the benefit of the rune, and the EP applied would be the default runeless one, which is much weaker. There is nothing to slot instead of EP that would realistically make up for that huge loss in dmg.

I've been working on building out this build (missing the weapons, unity rings, and a couple cube items) it seems like the exploding palms are overpowering, but there's a huge gap between when I can run a rift quickly and when I actually run into trouble. I ran a GR 37 without triggering a 'near death' once, but it took me about 6.5 minutes. I have to drop the difficulty down to mid-20s to get under 5.

 

Any idea if I'm doing something wrong? Thoughts on if it makes sense to keep times down or go higher for better loot chances?

Low density tilesets are the only problem with this build. You literally have to drag an exploding crowd to make an effect. Awesome guide. I like the intensity of the build.

It's hugely satisfying when it works, for sure!

It sounds like this is mainly just a gear problem. You are missing extremely important parts of the build. I'd farm whatever you can quickly and, if possible, try to find someone to carry you in higher rifts to find those pieces. Loot shares are also great for this.
