Finding a Super MONK Build
« on: August 12, 2017, 01:40:58 AM »
Greetings, all!

I recall reading on MinMaxBoards (possibly posted by SorO_Lost) about a Monk build (the PHB class) that used a variety of alternative class features, feats, and items to, at level 7, be super effective compared to a normal Monk.  I don't recall what the build or post was called nor where to find it; therefore, what and where is this?

You want to use the Dark Moon Monk substitution levels combined with the the Invisible Fist ACF from Exemplars of Evil.

Thankee!

Is that all?

And how does the full build compare to an unarmed Swordsage?

Well, you must also be a dwarf and take Steadfast Determination, Poison Healer, and dip into Deepwarden and Fist of the Forest.

Why do Steadfast Determination, Poison Healer, Deepwarden, and Fist of the Forest go so well with this?

I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right.

2013 was a very good year for Monks, like a fine hWine getting both tastier and fruitier with age.

The Matrix Monk from SorO was what I sought!  Thankee!  Alleluia!

It was also good to read these other things!

Fixed it, also since I'm more "Dragon friendly", I added the claw combo to the suggestions list.

What would happen if you were to climb to what you think my ego is and jump to what your post says your IQ is?
