    Sorry about the total thread derailment but could you share some attacks? I've heard about non-uac monks but never seen one in action. I did yeti/dwellers a few levels ago but what I love about my monk so much is the fact he can travel around and hunt pretty much anywhere around his level and above.

    I recently converted my 51 monk into a ranged build to utilize the gnomish crossbow I picked up but didn't really have a character to use it on. His DS is so high I just stay kneeled in a room of 3 or fewer critters and just knock out eyes. It's so effective it's almost boring. I use qstrick -1 to reduce cock to 1 second for only 12 stamina. I can use it almost the entire hunt which gives me 4 second kills. Once I get more stamina/recovery I'll probably swap to qstr -2 on the shot so I'm doing 3 second shots.

    His DS is over 300 in offensive while kneeling self-spelled and I can barely be touched by things 4+ levels higher than me. He's also a halfling so his ranged AS is like... 338 or something? Ranged is dumb.

    Although, now that I mention it, I should probably stop using 102 and stop kneeling. The net result is similar but I should have a larger DS and no penalty to evasion. Derp.

    Yeah, those mechanical crossbows are pretty awesome for small races. I used one for a while on my halfling rogue, but dealing with blessed arrows is such a pain in the ass I gave it up and switched to UAC. Now my rogue and monk are the same level, but the monk is so much more fun I never play the rogue any more.

    You can also stop casting 102, get combat mobility and never be caught kneeling from AS/DS attacks to keep the attack bonus.

    I intentionally didn't take combat mobility because I didn't want stuff standing me up when I'm fighting swarms. I just stay kneeling and shoot things, hah.

    Nearing cap Meureii has 34.5% redux if I remember right. I'll pop in and check tomorrow morning.

    Also, 1207 is great for the lower and mid levels. Minotaurs and the especially the Magus were made easy with those. I run a flurry build with 1213, 99 total mana, 215 stamina, the sigil offense/defense and major bane/protection running all times and mstrike jab every attack as needed in the warcamps. Don't seem to really ever run out of stamina or mana. 2 mstrikes and then kick abs and the room goes down.

    When things get really tough 1219.

    The lack of anything that breaks a stun is shitty but really with all the evade and 3x dodge with robes and FoF, you don't lay down long, auto stand, and the dodge/evade everything. Casters scare me when they're in there but the CS/TD spread is close enough where the roll needs to be stellar to do anything harmful.

    MEDITATE CRUSH helps a lot and I use VACUUM a lot too in the camps since it's always a random void that gets ya.

    I guess the best friend of a monk and breaking stuns is preventative.

    Are rangers still the only class without access to stun-breaker or stun-saver?

    (wrathbringer78) I think that's it. Viril is one big obnoxious ambient script.

    I don't believe sorcerers do as well.

    Cloak of Shadows and 130. It's certainly not 100% effective but at least it has a chance.
