Released not so long ago with Diablo 3 Patch 2.3, the new Uliana set establishes the cool monk skill Strike of the Seven Fists together with Exploding Hand as the new standard for successful ranked play in the Great Rifts.
In order to get the most out of the build, you always try to attack as large groups of opponents as possible and at the same time involve stragglers in the fight using a “hit and run” tactic with a frenzied attack. When the monsters are gathered, you automatically apply Exploding Hand and the Assimilation damage buff using the Path of the Hundred Fists Triple Attack. Finally, you unleash a devastating blow of the seven fists, which with the support of the legendary Gungdo rails automatically spreads and ignites threatening doom in the monster pack.
While the Seven Fists Strike is your primary source of damage and should always be used after the cooldown time has expired, it is very important to cast Path of the Hundred Fists at least every 5 seconds to remove the two damage buffs from the Bastion of Will ring set. Repeat this skill rotation until the Trash or Elite pack is dead, but always keep an eye on the maximum area damage and always move on to the next pack.
On the defensive side, try to keep the Desert Shroud of Revelation and Furious Fast of Furious Attack buffs as good as possible. When the going gets tough, her mantra of the rapture activates the agility buff by casting spells again for additional toughening.
The basis of the strike of the Seven Fists Monk is formed by the six parts of the Uliana set and one of the two fist weapons used here, the lion’s claw. It was introduced in Season 4 and has been optimized for the Strike of the Seven Fists. On the other hand, you use The Fist of Az’Turrasq, which greatly increases the damage done by Exploding Hand’s death explosion. The second major component of this build is the Bastion of Will ring set. With its independent multiplier of 2.25, the set is unrivaled in terms of damage amplification, if its two partial buffs through timely use of Way of the Hundred Fists and the seven fists blow are kept permanently active.
