START OFF THE SEASON WITH A FULL SET! As seen in the picture below, each class gets a certain Set via Haedrig’s Gift! Simply complete the tasks outline in this article and get that running start to the season! Hot To Get Em All! Reach Level 70: You will get your first two set pieces! Kill Zolton Kulle: You must kill Zolton Kulle on T2 or higher. The 2 set pieces you got after hitting 70, along with a few crafted items, should make killing him a little easier (this can also be done in a full party). Killing Zolton Kulle will give you the next two pieces of your 6 piece set! Now you will have 4 pieces when you move onto the next phase. Complete Great Rift 20 (between T4-T5 difficulty) or Higher Solo. The 4 piece set with a few crafted items will also make this a lot easier!

 M O N K S    IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT SET DUNGEONS! The 6 Piece Bonus Must Be Active: While you must wear the entire set for the Pilar to spawn, you can equip a Ring of Royal Grandeur to reduce the set items required for a full set by 1. As long as you have that on your character, or in Kanai’s Cube, your 5 piece set will be allowed into the Dungeon. Hardcore Players CANNOT DIE in Set Dungeons: Instead of dying your life will reach 1hp and prevent death will be activated. Monsters will still have the attack animation, however, their attacks will do no damage to you. A GREEN PORTAL will appear beside you, after the death procs, and it will take you back to the outside of the set dungeon entrance. DO NOT TAKE THE GREEN EXIT! ANY monster sitting outside the entrance that you ran past to get to

 

Wishful Wednesdays: TR Monk

by Lala on

Angels and demons are bound to their natures. Demons are given to chaos and deceit; angels to truth and order. That much is known …The Nephalem alone have choice. ~Archangel Itherael. Welcome to Wishful Wednesdays where we will attempt to show some ideas from fellow Nephalem who want to see something added to the game: whether that be builds that need items to make them work, a new or revamped mode of game-play that they would enjoy, holiday buffs or just QoL improvements. Today, I’ll start off with my wish: a viable Tempest Rush Monk, at least viable at T8 farming. Tempest Rush was one of my favorite playstyles in Vanilla D3, before I cared about being viable, and I was able to recreate it in season 1 and 2. But, with all the additions of powerful items and more difficulties I have not been able to create a workable

 

The Horadrim Corner: Group Heal Monk

Welcome to the Horadrim Corner! Come gather by the fire and talk about the builds you all want to see! Let the ancient knowledge of the Horadrim assist your quest for greatness as you slaughter the demons that stand in your way. For all that is good, build yourself into a warrior worthy of Pandemonium! Allo Allo! And welcome to yet another edition of the Horadrim Corner. With some of the recent changes to crowd control, many people were wondering if support builds were going to fall out of favor since they relied so much on that lockdown of enemies to really perform. But have no fear! The Monk is here! Rather than the traditional CC builds of the past, this Monk build relies on healing and protecting your allies. Now without further ado, here it is: Actives Cyclone Strike – Implosion: Grouping enemies can be one of the greatest ways

 

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO BE A PRO! IMPORTANT DOs & DON’Ts  Regardless of The Method Used To Level ALWAYS: Take your followers weapons for more damage starting off! Even if you are solo, you can still use your follower without them having a weapon. Check for cursed events. Stick to Act 1 Cursed Chest events, as the monsters in Act 1 are the easiest to kill, resulting in maximum efficiency. Cursed chests can be found in The Fields of Misery, The Old Ruins, Cathedral Level 1, Caverns of Araneae, and Halls of Agony 3. Keep an eye out for Helms with SOCKETS! Place a Ruby (Red) Gem into it (Red Gems = XP Boost). If you are in a party SHARE the extra socket-ed helms with your group. PICK UP EVERYTHING! Salvage everything you get to drop in game once you out level them (DO NOT be afraid

Welcome to the Horadrim Corner! Come gather by the fire and talk about the builds you all want to see! Let the ancient knowledge of the Horadrim assist your quest for greatness as you slaughter the demons that stand in your way. For all that is good, build yourself into a warrior worthy of Pandemonium! Allo Allo! Here we are at another edition of Horadrim Corner, this week featuring the Shaolin Warrior, the Monk. With the latest news from Heroes of the Storm, including the addition of the Monk as a hero, it seems the perfect time to highlight a Support Monk build for Diablo itself. Like many other support builds, it revolves around high defense, lots of crowd control, and increasing your team’s damage. It also achieves a highly sought after goal, permanent Epiphany. Now without further ado, here it is: Actives Crippling Wave – Breaking Wave: A great AoE

Welcome to the Horadrim Corner! Come gather by the fire and talk about the builds you all want to see! Let the ancient knowledge of the Horadrim assist your quest for greatness as you slaughter the demons that stand in your way. For all that is good, build yourself into a warrior worthy of Pandemonium! Hello and welcome to the first edition of Horadrim Corner. I am Threedaysjpt, here to show off weekly builds to help get you started in your Diablo grind. For this first build, we shall be looking at my personal favorite, the Monk, and the revamped Raiment of a Thousand Storms set. In this particular version, we will be playing off of the “Thousand Storms” name and focusing the build around lightning, literally creating one thousand storms. Although this might be the style used here, most any element can be used to modify the build to

Books have often been society’s only bastion of light for passing along knowledge that would otherwise be lost to time or convoluted by the oral tradition. In order to provide new and old adventurers with as much knowledge of what to expect on their journey in Sanctuary, we created this tome of knowledge – Ars Arcanum. We will regularly feature a Legendary weapon or armor piece, discussing its stand-alone powers and capabilities, as well as how it may synergize with new builds or other items. Continuing in the Monk vein, we have another item that will see new use once Patch 2.1.2 drops and the Monk metagame shifts. Due to the changes in the Sunwuko set, the Monk’s new best friend is the Incense Torch of the Grand Temple. Why is it good? Last week, we touched on the newly reworked Gungdo Gear bracers and how they will provides even more

 

Ars Arcanum: Gungdo Gear

Books have often been society’s only bastion of light for passing along knowledge that would otherwise be lost to time or convoluted by the oral tradition. In order to provide new and old adventurers with as much knowledge of what to expect on their journey in Sanctuary, we created this tome of knowledge – Ars Arcanum. We will regularly feature a Legendary weapon or armor piece, discussing its stand-alone powers and capabilities, as well as how it may synergize with new builds or other items. This week, we continue to analyze items that were previewed at BlizzCon for Patch 2.1.2 and Season 2. While I have not played a Monk in quite some time, I have been keeping up a decent amount with their metagame and lowly position on the Leaderboards. Hopefully, this change to Gungdo Gear along with the changes to their sets will help to push the Monk in

The Monk is getting a huge revamp in patch 2.1, we've touched on most of the changes that have already been implemented into the PTR, but news came of some of the additional changes we will see in the next update. Check out more info from the EU forums.
