The first four achievements pertaining to the four difficulties of Diablo 3 don't really have a need of any explanation considering it would just be redundant, thus they don't have any. :)
Complete Act IV with a Monk on Normal Difficulty.
Unlocks a sigil accent.
Servant of the Gods
Complete Act IV with a Monk on Nightmare Difficulty.
Complete Act IV with a Monk on Hell Difficulty.
Complete Act IV with a Monk on Inferno Difficulty.
Unlocks a banner sigil.
Champions of Ivgorod
Reach level 60 with 2 monks.
Part of the path towards the 10 level 60 characters achievement.
Secret Weapons of the Veradani
Equip a Spirit Stone and a Fist Weapon or Daibo at the same time.
You'll find these items as you progress through the first act on normal, or can purchase/craft them if you happen to be having an unlucky day. These are all the monks signature items that only it's class can use.
Use Mantra skills to grant a beneficial effect to an ally 200 times.
You unlock your fist Mantra, Mantra of Evasion at level 19, after which this group of buffing abilities will become a staple in your combat routines. Since they pretty much all buff allies, just make sure you always have a follower or play in multi games and you will unlock this as you progress naturally.
Ambuscade from Seven Sides
Hit 7 enemies with one Seven-Sided Strike.
Unlocks a banner sigil.
This shouldn't be too difficult to eventually unlock by just making a habit of using the Seven Sided Strike ability whenever you can over the course of the game until the achievement pops, considering the ability hits random enemies 7 times. If it is taking a while and you find you're not hitting 7 targets even in large groups of enemies, try going to an are where they are weak enough that you know you can take them out with each hit, thus rendering a duplicate strike impossible, or use the Several Sided Strike rune to increase the hits to 9 and give you a better chance.
Dodge 15 attacks in a row.
To some degree this is going to rely upon chance, however you can really boost your chance to dodge by doing the following. Take the passive skills The Guardian's Path (while dual wielding) to get +15% dodge and Sixth Sense to get 30% of your crit chance as dodge as well. From there, equip the Mantra of Evasion for another +15% (30% for 3 seconds after casting), use Cyclone Strike with the Wall of Wind as your focus skill (+20% dodge for 3 seconds after cast) and Dashing Strike as your technique with blinding speed rune (+20% dodge for 3 sec after cast). To top everything off, you can also use Blinding Flash with Searing Light rune (elites get 60% chance to miss) then find a bunch of elites to use it on while recasting your dodge increasing strikes and trying to keep them alive and hitting you as much as possible. This should give you the best possible chance of succeeding in this achievement (if not a bit over the top). Video coming soon.
Kill 150 enemies without reaching maximum Spirit.
You can pull off this achievement with little difficulty as long as you can keep a keen eye on your spirit pool and make sure to expend it as much as possible. A video for this is on the way to, but this task is more about not getting distracted than anything else.
