|Play Your Way Thursday – Davlok’s “One Kick Monk” Build||June-23-2016 10:00 AM PDT (4 years ago)|
You’ve heard of One Punch Monk—but now it’s time to deliver a swift boot to the head! In today’s build, Davlok#1847 props up Lashing Tail Kick as the star of this fiery flurry of kicks to debut the return of Play Your Way Thursday!
About the Build
Be prepared for a bit of investment—Davlok’s One Kick Monk centers around the Legacy of Nightmares ring set, which means collecting a whole lot of Ancient items. Still, the results are an extremely satisfying line of combustion bursting from rapid-paced kicks that will melt just about anything encountered.
This is a great change of pace for fulfilling your basic tasks, like farming bounties and Torment X Nephalem Rifts. With the inclusion of Nemesis Bracers, it’s a particularly ideal method for gathering up Death’s Breath’s without resorting to the Sage’s Journey set while still feeling like a total martial arts badass.
You will want to make a couple of tweaks for survivability if you intend to tackle higher-end Greater Rifts, however. Try changing Epiphany (Insight) to Epiphany (Desert Shroud) or working in Cyclone Strike with Lefebrvre’s Soliloquy for that extra defense.
