Monk is a playable class in Diablo ImmortalSkilled monks deliver rapid-fire attacks unarmed or with a variety of well-balanced weapons. In combat, they emphasize high maneuverability over staying power, darting in and out of melees and avoiding protracted slugfest. Monks’ attacks are primarily melee-focused. They can eliminate single foes with extreme damage, or deliver short-range area-of-effect assaults with waves of elemental power that emanate from palm strikes or crescent kicks. On this page, you can find information about all the skills of Monk in Diablo Immortal, as well as their strategy, lore, and useful builds.


Sacred martial artists who channel divine energy into powerful melee attacks, rapid movement on the battlefield, and wards that protect themselves and their allies.


Monk Information

Monks are known for their great movement capabilities and support roles as a team member. Their kit comes with AoE damage and array of skills with different types of damaging attacks as well as the ability to control combat by manipulating the movement or positioning of opponents which could benefit the whole party. With a great set of available skills and abilities comes a learning curve with positioning and Monk strategies. This includes knowing which combination of skills to equip in a given situation and when to deploy and use them. 

Ideal controling skills included in the Monk's kit include the Cyclone Strike which can generate a vortex of wind which pulls in enemies and deals damage. It is classified as a gather skill of the Monk that forces enemies to gather while damaging enemies in the area at the same time. Another control type skill includes the Imprisioned Fist which, after the attack, has the ability to stun enemies for 5 seconds. In any team composition, this will heavily help battle and during this skill, other party members will be cleared to come in and finish off those who are affected by this skill. 

AoE attacks include the Exploding palm which affects a large range in a specific direction and will have further secondary effects by making enemies that are affected explode, extending the range of attack. 

In a team, the Monks work best with other Melee chracters to help balance their ranged and control abilities. A Barbarian would help cover close range enemies and clear those who slip through the effects of the monk's AoE abilities. Especially since the Barbarian is known for clearing out hordes, the Monk Skill Imprisoned first, which stuns enemies in range of the attack will be ideal for use with the Barbarian in the team so he can be sent to clear any stunned enemies. Other classes that work well with the Monk is the Crusader who has similar strengths as the monk such as mobility and AoE, but since it is used differently, will be able to cover a larger area with the Crusader steed while the monk focuses on one small area.  In a team with the Crusader, the crusader can be used to circle the perimeter of the battle and can clear the large area surrounding the party while the monk focuses on the center area of battle. 

Monk Class Primary Attacks

  • Their main primary attacks are a good example of why they flourish in movement, since it is an attack action accompanied with a short teleporation action. With Fists of Thunder you can Teleport to a nearby enemy and unleash a rapid succession of punches that each deal damage. You can teleport again after every third hit.
  • With Deadly Reach, monks are able to project lines of piercing force that deal damage to the target and to enemies behind the targets.

Monk Lore

Monks in Diablo Games:  "Monks are sacred warriors who channel divine power through sheer force of will. Healing waves, mantras of protection and attacks empowered with holy might are all within their purview. Monks of the Sahptev faith train their bodies and minds so that they may become the foremost holy warriors of the land of Ivgorod. Within the cloisters of the Patriarchs, the monks endure harsh trials both physical and spiritual, proving their devotion and attaining unmatched focus.

Daily ritualistic cleansings help monks purify their spirits and overcome the corruption that gnaws at the hearts of all men. In the pursuit of martial perfection, they also hone their legendary balance and clarity, skills that allow them to master both unarmed combat and a diverse array of weapons. After a lifetime of preparation, anointed monks are permitted to leave their monasteries' halls to serve the decrees of the Patriarchs. The emblem on their foreheads marks them as survivors, achievers, and pillars of their society. Monks embody the will of Ivgorod’s one thousand and one gods in every step and every strike."


Monk Strengths and Weaknesses

Monk Strengths:

  • The Monks have Great movement and Mobility and have skills in their kit that can contain both movement actions along with an AoE attack. Since they have a lot of control skills as well, it makes them great supporting classes and if used well, can be a powerful class on their own. Their skills are also accompanied be buffs that will affect the team making them an over all ideal team member. 

Monk Weaknesses:

  • Player who use this class have to be more tactical with their approach and know when to deploy their skills. Since they mostly deal AoE damage, they generally do not have any melee attacks and may have to rely on good positioning and other team members for larger hoards when they advance too close. Although they have a great AoE kit, this also means they don't have as much melee skills and are not particularly effective with damaging single targets.
