Skills to use for your Monk on your Diablo 3 Account
The bread and butter ability of this build is Wave of Light (Explosive Light). While this ability may seem to have a high usage cost, it can be made cheaper through Epiphany (Insight). The latter however needs a lot of cooldown reduction to be kept up for maximum effect. This can be achieved through stats and items for your D3 account as discussed later.
The rest of the skills of this build revolves around movement speed bonuses and mobility built into the skills. Dashing Strike (Way of the Falling Star) and Mantra of Conviction (Annihilation) both provide offense and a way to move either through the effects of the skill or the rune.
As for passives Beacon of Ytar is a must for its 20% reduction to all cooldowns. Momentum is also taken to take advantage of all the moment you will be doing. The more you move, the higher your damage. For a complete list of skills, check out the skill build page here.
Monk Ability-Scaling Items for Diablo 3 Account Holders
Since getting 75% cooldown reaction is an absolute, Leoric’s Crown must be equipped. Other items you’ll need when you buy D3 account include Cindercoat and Monkey King’s Garb. The latter’s four piece bonus is sought for the damage bonus to Wave of Light. Note however that a Ring of Royal Grandeur is needed so you can equip the other core items. Cindercoat is used on the character to lessen the casting cost of Wave of Light.
Using Gems for Diablo 3 Account Holders
For gems to use for the build, Zei’s Stone of Vengeance is taken for the distance based bonus to damage. At rank 25, its chance to stun synergizes well with Bane of the Trapped. The latter causes your character to deal more damage to crowd controlled enemies. Lastly, since this build can quickly kill elite packs, Bane of the Powerful is slotted into gear. This gives a sizeable attack bonus for the next pack the Gong Mode: Sriracha monk will encounter.
