I've been on the road, so no time to game, but time to do R&D. I found this video, and it is by far the best support monk guide out there for S13. It's geared toward running meta with a Wiz, but does mention running with a WD if needed. I had to rewind a few times, as I had a hard time understanding what he said, but IT WAS WELL WORTH IT! I have played this game since it's inception, and have mained a zMonk, and never known some of the things I learned from this. ESPECIALLY the RG fight. Here is the link, and I strongly suggest watching all of it, to the end, to see how the RG fight actually goes.

Key points discussed:
1. Breakpoints are mentioned (trying for 5 AS with Flying Dragon active)
2. Pull mobs to walls and escort your DPS (Not new, but worth mentioning)
3. Your Istavan's weapons should not have any "chance to..." You don't want any stuns/blinds/etc when you cant control when it happens
4. **Important** If in the meta with a necro RGK, only use your primary for 2 hits, wait 1 second, then repeat until he/she is launches Land of The Dead and starts actually attacking. The necro will be stacking stricken on the Rift Guardian. During that time, you should not be spamming your swords. If you have 65% cooldown, you can keep the sanc up, and do the 1, 2....wait 1 second then 1, 2 on the crippling wave-sunami to prevent the RG from getting immune to stuns. When the necro attacts-put your sanc on them, and go to them to provide area protection until they are done with the cast, then back to the Rift Guardian when they go back.
5. The goal on RG fights with a Necro is no CC on the Boss until the Necro is actually attacking with Land of the Dead active and using their main attack.

One thing not mentioned in this video is if you are playing with a RGK Crusader, the Crusader should tell you when to blind. They have to have blind during their holy cycle.

In short. we have to give the RG some love, and withhold lots of the stuns/blinds/and other CC effects so they don't go immune during the burn down of the RGK.

I hope this is helpful.
