Thread: Flurry of blows

  1. Default

    I kind of wanted to try out the Mstrike UAC changes with a Monk and recently created one, so this is an interesting thread. Though I'm probably going to try to get Perfect Self first, I think, before going for any martial stances.

    I nearly went Halfling after reading all the bonuses they seem to have, but I really didn't feel like RPing a Halfling. In the end I went Dwarf - they also have a ETD bonus, I believe. I know they have a small negative to Agility, but shouldn't affect me too much in the long run I don't think. They have a lot more HP than a Halfling, anyhow. The low HP was the only thing I really disliked about my Gnome Ranger character.

    Yeah, the nice thing about monks is that they can learn combat toughness, which helps with the HP problem a bit. Rank 1 still leaves you 30 points shy of a dwarf's max HP, but puts you fairly close to most other races.

    I reckon perfect self probably gives you another 5 max HP from the CON bonus at rank 5, too.

    One downside of flurry of blows is that it'll get you into additional trouble against reactive stuff. I'm gonna think twice before mstriking in a room full of shapers again, at least until I get 120:

    ugh, god. Yeah, fuck that fucking disintegrate cloak. It's also super annoying the first hit is just raw HP damage, and meditating disintegrate doesn't help lessen it. I'm still waiting for the day when I kill myself on that fucking thing. I run ki-focus and feint though so usually feint + ki focus and a head punch does them in.
