Sunwuko Wave of Light
Diablo 3 Patch 2.6.1
This is currently the best solo high GR pushing Monk build and at the same time Monkey King's Garb is the Season 13's starter set for Monks. We have already presented a very similar build for Season 12 which provided much better mobility thanks to In-geom, but if you prefer to push the Monk class to its' limits, this is the build to go in Season 13. The difference lays only in few item and skill choices which are listed below.

The entire build is based on the Monkey King's Garb (named after Sunwuko the Monkey King) set which provides the following bonuses:
- Damage taken is reduced by 50% while Sweeping Wind is active (2/6)
- Sweeping Wind spawns a decoy every tick next to the last enemy the Monk hit. The decoy taunts nearby enemies and then explodes for 1000% damage for each stack of Sweeping Wind currently active within 10 yards (4/6)
- Lashing Tail Kick, Tempest Rush, and Wave of Light have their damage increased by 1000% for each stack of Sweeping Wind the Monk currently has (6/6)
Sunwuko set in combination with Vengeful Wind legendary fist weapon increases the damage of Wave of Light by a maximum of 10,000%. This combined with all the listed items make up for one of the strongest damage dealing ability in the game. It is even further amplified by the use of Bastions of Will rings. Your primary attack also is used to generate additional Spirit (you won't be able to use Epiphany - Insight for that purpose), and grant increased damage reduction thanks to Spirit Guards bracers.
Sunwuko WoL build is easy to play. All you have to do is to keep your Sweeping Wind up (just casting it once you start a Greater Rift is more than enough) and spam Wave of Light. You need to your buffs up that include Spirit Guards, Bastions of Will and Dashing Strike dodge chance, and that's pretty much it.
