I got burnt out on Path of Exile after grinding the last few leagues. The latest league didn’t really excite me so I decided to take a break and go back to some other games. One game that did intrigue me was Diablo 3 due to the new sets (particularly the Demon Hunter set).
Right now, the Innes Monk is possibly my favorite build next to the Marauder Demon Hunter build. I’ve seen a few variants of the build, including one that uses Exploding Palm and the hardcore one that Quin69 uses that goes for more defensive stats. But oddly enough, I haven’t really seen anyone use Tasker and Theo gloves and wanted to talk a little about this alternative build.
Right now, the top end monks for Season 5 use the revamped Innes set. The new Innes set is all about the Monk’s allies. This post talks about the basic build and a variant I’m running.
I haven’t written about Diablo 3 in a while mostly because I’ve been busy with work or just flat out playing Diablo 3. And when I play Diablo 3, I’m mostly adhering to my main guides for the most part. Thus far though, I did not put much effort into the Uliana build in terms of written stuff. Right now, I’m spending some time getting to know the basic play style and wanted to share my thoughts/experiences with this build.
Once again, I managed to get into the PTR for some testing. I did revisit the Marauders Demon Hunter build once again as well as put more emphasis on a Sunwuko-Innes combo monk. In addition, I’ve been playing around with Kanai’s Cube with regards to another power, the ability to convert rares into legendaries.
All day I eagerly anticipated getting home to get my hands on the new patch. Originally, I thought about hitting the gym but it rained so it pretty much provided me with a reasonable excuse to head straight home after work. For the most part, I had been reading about the patch through forum posts and watching streamers thus far, with a few moments of getting into the PTR. Despite a great of negativity, I still felt that the patch had some real high hopes for me.
As I continue to go through the gear progression for my Windwalker Monk, I started to really appreciate how this class/spec is put together. Thus far, I’ve managed to go up to Siege of Orgrimmar wing 1 successfully and feel I have quite a few of the basic play style for this class/spec down and want to share my thoughts on what I think is one of the most well rounded classes/specs around.
Yesterday was a rather “productive” World of Warcraft day. I managed to hit 90 on my monk, get the helmet token for my paladin and started doing Flex on my hunter. I feel that the door to many things have opened up and it has motivated me somewhat to get a little more progress on my toons.
I’ve been really pushing my monk to 90 at the moment. I feel with the expansion nearing the end, I should just finish up leveling my monk and getting him to the spot where the rest of my gang is. Unfortunately, the leveling process feels as tedious as ever but being familiar with all the quest lines has made progress quite expedient.
I leveled my pandaren monk from 71-80 today. It took a fair amount of time but at the same time the entire episode felt quick. It might take me anywhere between a week or two to get him to 90. However, I wanted to share my thoughts on this class thus far.
