Diablo 3 Raiment of a Thousand Storms Crippling Wave Monk Build

This build is great for speed farming rifts and bounties, allowing you to get reagents and Rift Keys very quickly. Two primary attacks allow you to adapt to the situation, be it AoE damage or a boss rift. Dashing Strike serves all Monks faithfully, making them a very mobile class, capable of killing large numbers of mobs quickly and efficiently in a short amount of time. With this build, you can also start clearing Greater Rifts, but high levels will not be easy because you will miss the damage reduction sources from set bonuses. It is nevertheless very easy to learn and will serve as a good start for a new season.
