Do all the Monk's damage boosting abilities stack?



  • I play as a Monk, and I have two pocket Wizards to kill things for me. Or put another way, my two Wizard friends have a pocket Monk, to keep mobs away from them and apply juicy damage debuffs.

    Anyway, we were wondering, do all the Monk's damage-boosting debuffs stack? Specifically:

    Do all these abilities work together, so that mobs could be taking an extra 56% damage?



  • Sometimes, the answer to your question is provided by Mother Blizzard itself (just look at the "advanced" tootip on each ability), some other times, they need a little bit of testing.

    • Crippling Wave - Breaking Wave (YES😞 Enemies hit by Crippling Wave take 10% additional damage from all attacks for 3 seconds.
    • Inner Sanctuary - Forbidden Palace (YES😞 I play as a Monk since Diablo 3 was out, until now. I can confirm that the damage boost is significant, as reported by my fellow players.
    • Mantra of Conviction - Overawe (YES) Same as point 2. The Mantra makes the monk invaluable for a party, due to its 16% to 20% damage boost!

    So the answer is yes, if your enemies are hit by your crippling wave AND within your sanctuary AND within the AOE of your Mantra take 56% up to 60% damage (if you also activate the active ability of the Mantra).

    Hope this helps!
