So strange being a new player so far into the games life span. Good vid man! I don't have a monk yet but this has somewhat inspired me to level one though!

My Uliana starter set was crap; but I was aiming for the EP SSS build, and Fist of Az'Turrasq and Lion's Claw refused to drop. I'll revisit it once I get all the pieces I need. I switched over to Inna's WoL speed build since I had Kyoshiro's Soul and In-Geom. That put me at GR 80 super easy with Crudest Boots in the Cube. I did it in ~6-7 minutes with only two gems at level 25, maybe 450 paragons. Didn't use Endless Walk because I had a Mara's Kaleidescope that rolled 9.5% crit chance and 99% crit damage lol. It was 20% of my sheet damage. I'll try pushing when I get a Rabid Strike. It should be very powerful. Finally got the last piece for Sunwuko with Focus and Restraint, and I think it hits harder than Inna's, but isn't as fast, because I'm using Vengeful Wind instead of In-Geom. So I'm just speed running 70s for now until I get some ancient drops. I haven't tried Raiment yet. I think I have all the pieces I need for the Gen build now. I had like 9 Shenlong's Relentless Assault, but no Fist of Legend for the longest time. Good guide, my experience so far lines up with your thoughts.

Man, since most of the time I play it couch co-oping, unity doesn't really work for me. I never had real problem with it because I never had played monk this way until this season. Monks don't have good rings. I didn't know that. I've been playing this game since 2013 9on consoles) and never knew that. What a shame. All other classes I've played had at least one good ring to replace unity. Not monk. Guess I'll have to revitalize good old Stone of Jordan. Great vid, by the way.

I`m really excited for this season and as a monk class lover i would like to thank you for making this video. I am still deciding though between wizard, barb, crusader or monk however(leaning towards monk since i`m really excited about Inna gen build) .
Magarnapvp
Innas wol still top because rabid strike doing double wols fire ally 20% damage increase 8% damage buff from mantra just insane extra damage not directly looked at
Jeremy Farlin
I KNEW IT! Sunwuko wol all the way bro! Cant wait! Great video wolf!

As a monk player i would love to see s16 vid video from you, good job !
Mcrey Fonacier
Create a video about a gear which farms the most, like can easily finish GRs and normal rifts to get some primals
Cookieboy1221
A man walks into a bar.... "ouch!"
Coffee Beans
May you post gear for the A tier build please? Im new player and I would liek to see what it looks like i.e what gear to get etc appreciate it :D would donate to you too
DennisW1985
Great Video 👍 but this season i go dh 😎 greetings from Berlin
Dracon45
I agree your rant against the nerf of Inna’s was very much misplaced. It still has a substantial 400% increase in damage and deserves the A tier.
Z Jackfrost
Great video!The way you predict is so fun and convincing.I learn much from it.thanks a lot.
The Iceman
Ah ye me gotta try some D3 again
Angelus1269
I'm planning to run an Uliana EP monk this season
Michael Cook
Love the content. Crusader is my starter toon though. Thanks Cryer
flamestryker666
I was so hoping the patch would come out earlier so we could test Innas and Blizzard would see that they nerfed it too much. Should've been 1000% and not 750%. After the season is done, Innas will be lucky to do a 115 , IMO.
Vi XiphiqiX
Nice work, I may just Monk it this season, tossing up between this Barb and DH.
PR0LIFIK GAMING
I've never played diablo but just finished act 1 in the free version... really want to pick it up but would it be worth it? Strong playerbase?
Thyco2501 of the VKP
Thanks for the list. I'm trying to decide if I should go with monk or witch doctor in S16. Btw. what paragon level is required to reach the GRs you listed? Also, what is the most tanky build?
Kealsera
I'd recommend you to add a short clip of gameplay in for every build so I get a glimpse of how the build feels to play.
Symm Bias
I miss the days when the static charge build was melting packs....good times
Phil OnTech
Would love to see a weekly leaderboard video
doro626
Super noob question. Are the pros clicking multiple times to attack or are they just holding the mouse button down to attack?
ThorsShadow
Hey Wolfcryer, do you think it'll be possible to incorporate oldschool Sweeping Wind with the Cyclone rune into the Inna Gen build or build a SWK variant?
necro mantis
Wow I love your background lol
2ez4tobi
I just came here to confirm that rhyk is somehow wrong hehehe
Cyril Carbungco
Can you please post a link on build set and skill for the Sunwuko WoL FnR? Thanks in advance 😁
TubaHeroGaming
I played a little bit of Sunwuko LTK last season obsidian ring, not F&R, and still felt like it was squishy and clunky. I'd imagine LoN would be much smoother with easy incorporation of toughness items + cindercoat, might try that out next season if I get the gear put together even if the direct multipliers are a bit lower than Sunwuko.
Blase Freemantle
Is there a hc list, you mention uliania Ep' top hc, could you please do a top 3 build n strat breakdown for hc the niche of niche gamers, ps, love the content your enthusiasm is refreshing and is quite logical and to the point with out filler and that is so rare, keep up the hardwork
nlcke
These graphics around you, haha so nice!
Cyril Peyer
dude nice background :)
Beldis2
Really need diablofans links to make this video truly useful.
Ryshifter
So for non-seasonal, the top should be LoN WoL then, I think.
ThisIsG
For some reason I thought this would of been a 30 second video since only 1 build is blizzard's favorite build xD
Keith Wilson
It's funny you list Wuko generator with FnR …. it's what I've been running since 2.6.1 , i'll probably be running it in seasons and i6 r2 dual gen in non seasons, nice video Wolf , keep it up .
Sebastian Nastvogel
before seasonstart the raimon generator build was the strongest build in europe they run 134+ (with a lot of paragon) i'm not sure if it's realy playable with lower paragon
Ole Asmus
I have a Sunwuko WoL F+R going, and would be really interested in a link to a build, with your comments on e.g. stats and gems!? all your build talks would be much more useful with some build links :) /Peace
mulubear
WOL again for season 16? Not much changing in the Monk Tiers from previous seasons. Uliana EP and Inna still my favorite play style but need to use swk WOL to do the pushes. They shouldnt have nerfed Innas
Rodion Dyo
Lon = 750%*13 ; inna 750%*10...why Lon is in d tier?
MrCarlRobinson
Ulliannas EP is my favourite of all time. Do you still have to mess around with the EP to get the mythic rhythm buff?
Hannyabal
Where can I check the buffs?
Ramon van der Elst
All the tier lists never say if it's with paragon or without. If its with then what paragon level are we talking about? Also are we talking about perfect rolled gear (primal/ancients). Thank you for the video though. Im definitely gonna play monk season 16!
Steele Stevens
I hoped INNAs SSS was going to be A tier!
Artemiy Kapaev
Monk RTX top 1 GR have Raiment Storm and i no see this build in ur abcd list why?
CelticFrost
awesome vids as always chief
Anatithe
R6 will not pass everything, it already has done so. Even before the season, R6 has been #1 & 2 on EU leaderboards.
Tripletary Gaming
Monk is my favourite
malataur
Hi Wolf, I agree with your list. I was using the Sunwuko WoL monk with F+R for Seasons 12 & 13. I didn't know it was better, I just really hate the timers on the Endless Walk set. I call it the Endless Wait set, because you're endlessly waiting for the numbers to ramp up and down fully before you can make your attacks. Maybe I'll shake it out for a test drive this season. I haven't decided what I want to run this season, but Monk just moved up on my list. 😊 Have a good one man, and best wishes for LWAC this season!
Vaylen Roman
dude i can not find the info for Uliana ep. i have no idea what the fit is or the skills.
Snug Vapes
thinking LoN is going to be underatedespecially for starpact.....
Louis Gullo
What is the difference between Uliana SSS build and Uliana EP build???
topcat870ken
Wolfcryer , I was hoping you can help us ?The console players on Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo got to deal with a save glitch. Can you make a video , like 2 min. Or something to show there’s a problem before the season starts.
Rafael Reyes, Jr
Hey All, I’m new to D3 on the PS4. Not sure how Seasons work. Will we start from scratch? Can I farm the pieces for the Monk Build now? Thanks for any insight.
Steve Hash
Does anyone know if the New patch will stop drop outs?? They should stop ppl form being abel to quite fookin turds.. if you drop out more then 3 times then banned for week.. Will it be ranked grift on none season?? Of you are 1500 in pg lvl then you are linked up to similar pg lvl kids???
lazybrett16
Are these fluffys builds?
Bruce Cox
I looked at all the "buffs" for the upcoming season,and I had a few crazy/mad thoughts. what if these "seasons" are a behind the scenes alpha test for Diablo 4? That they are gathering info on how well players like/use the new "buffs" and they will be used in D4,but maybe they will go to a Free/Pay model. you get the "Normal" buffs as free to play,but with a Subscription you get a bigger buff? ok took my tin hat off. good video as usual.

Whats f + r?
