4/25/2014 2:58:24 PM

In the Diablo III, the two essential factors to farm is the qualified viability and stable output capacity. The Monk never lack of ability to survive, we have the best defense skills in all classes. While, due to the limitation of its output capacity, we can only depend on defense to survive. So, we are glad to share this build to make sure we not only have the stable defense ability, but also have excellent DPS. The core idea of this build is reducing the CD.

Seven-Sided Strike - Fulminating Onslaught

According to my personal test, the runes of Seven-Sided Strike increased 27% after patch 2.04. To reducing the CD of Severn strike can directly increase the attack efficiency. As the main output skill, this skill can play important role in dodging and attacking.

Exploding Palm - The Flesh is Weak

It can provide 20% damage buff. You can release it unlimited when the fists can recovery spirit. Meanwhile, Exploding Palm can get physical damage buff and elites damage buff form Mantra of Conviction. Besides, the 50% monster life damage buff decides it would be the crazy reaper in D3!


Breath of Heaven - Circle of Scorn

Breath of Heaven is the amazing defense skill for Monk, while less people fall in love with it. The crazy output ability and self-recovery ability are amplified under the help of Eye of Peshkov which is the necessary skill to farm in Diablo 3. From the video you can notice, i didn’t use blood bottle over 4 times, all depend on Breath of Heaven.

Epiphany - Desert Shroud

Infuse yourself with sand, reducing damage taken by 50% can support you farm in T5 and increase the death rate.

Mythic Rhythm and Beacon of Ytar

There is no doubt that Beacon of Ytar can reduce 25% CD is very important for this build and the Mythic Rhythm has damage buff for Exploding Palm, Seven-Sided Strike, Breath of Heaven and Way of the Hundred Fists.
