== Nuke [[Monk]] ==
The nuke monk is capable of colossal damage to [[Bosses]] while also being able to dish out considerably high DPS to weaker enemies. The ability to quickly defeat big threats, provide excellent dps, and respond to problems quickly with the monk's double-jump is why this is the most common build in the game, and why most expert players use the Monk as their main hero.
*Empowered Marks is a must if you wish to utilize this build to its maximum. This shard will increase the maximum amount of targets you can have marked.
*Mark Targets can allow your defenses to mark enemies rather than you having to mark them manually. This is most useful on the [[Flamethrower Tower]] and [[Earthshatter Tower]] because [[Frostbite Tower|Frostbite Towers]] don't deal damage and [[Arcane Barrier|Arcane Barriers]] only explode after withstanding enough punishment. This shard also cannot be applied to defenses that don't belong to the Apprentice. It should be worth noting that if you use Mark Targets in multiple lanes, your towers may have trouble marking enemies if you aren't using Empowered Mark.
*Haunting and Ravenhost can allow your primary and secondary attacks to deal significant damage, since both of these shards uses your Ability Power.
*Power of Storms uses Hero Damage, so it won't hurt much. However, when combined with Drenching Strikes, it can [[Electrocute]] enemies.
