Welcome to the Monkey King's Garb Sunwuko Tempest Rush Monk, a brother to the Patterns of Justice Tempest Rush Monk that can devastate enemies in an equal if not more impressive fashion. With the introduction of the Patterns of Justice Set and Won Khim Lau in Season 19, Monkey King's Garb have been buffed with Vengeful Wind now granting 10 additional Sweeping Wind stacks instead of 7.
Meanwhile Patterns of Justice is the set designed around Tempest Rush, Monkey King's Garb (Sunwuko) is performing better overall in push due to a stronger (6) Bonus damage multiplier. However, whenever a season theme offers more Kanai's Cube flexibility such as Season 20 or Season 22, Sunwuko falls behind due to its need for Vengeful Wind and its incapacity to equip Shenlong's Spirit for a massive damage boost.
Anyways a combination of smooth gameplay and devastating damage make this build a very fun and competitive one to go with. Let's go over this monster and push it into the top of the Monk solo leaderboard!

Global Stat Priorities
You need to stack 53 or 57% Resource Cost Reduction (RCR) depending on the setup, and about 55% Cooldown Reduction (CDR). RCR is necessary to keep channeling Tempest Rush all the time, while CDR is needed for permanent Epiphany. Get one or two Life per Hit rolls (Weapons, Bracer) for recovery. Aim to get All Resistance on your Belt, Pants and Boots and Secondary Resistances for Harmony passive on all other pieces. Your offensive priorities are: Cold Damage > Critical Hit Chance > Critical Hit Damage ~ Damage Range > Area Damage > Tempest Rush Damage.
- Put together the core items and acquire the full Sunwuko and Captain Crimson's Trimmings sets.
- Practice building and detonating your Flurry stacks on your Cold cycle of Convention of Elements.
- Climb the solo leaderboards by gathering monsters together and blasting them away with Area Damage.
- Enjoy this beautiful Spin-to-Win build!
