    Default Monk Skills Guide

    Monk's abilities are governed by a number of stats. In this guide, I'm going to go over and explain them.

    Base Stats

    A monk has 2 main "green stats": Strength and Stamina. They are found on all "fighter" items and can also come from racial bonuses, food, drink, potions, procs and buffs.

    Strength governs a monks power pool and how hard they hit with their auto attacks.
    Stamina governs a monks health pool. The current converation is something like 1 point of stamina to 10 points of health.

    Neither of these are capped.

    Green Skills


    Green skills refer to weapon skills and resistances on weapons and items. The cap on these increases as you level, and they can be skilled up to a cap, for example, using two slashing weapons and attacking an epic training dummy for ages will improve your skill with slashing weapons.

    Aggression: improves your taunts chance to hit and how well mobs can resist your taunts.
    Crushing: improves your chance to hit with crushing weapons, such as bo staffs, fists and hammers. Crushing does not effect fists.
    Fists: Monks automatically will have this capped anyway. This governs your to-hit when not using any weapons at all (such as when disarmed)
    Focus: This decreases your chance of being interupted while casting a spell. This generally doesn't affect monks, as the only spell they can cast is the call to home spell.
    Ranged: improves your ranged weapons chance to hit, such as pouches.
    Slashing: improves your chance to hit with slashing weapons, such as katars.

    Crushing, slashing, ranged and piercing skills are all found on weapons as +weapon skills. Being over the cap for weapon skills gives a higher minimum damage rating and an increase to riposte damage.

    There are also avoidance skills I will go into detail later.

    Defence: This increases your chance to avoid being hit by a melee weapon and is the base avoidence stat for all fighters.
    Deflection: A brawler only stat, it gives a chance to avoid being hit, but runs off a diffrent dismishing curve.
    Parry: This is an all fighter stat which a chance to ward off a melee attack, and then give a chance to riposte for some damage.

    [Still a work in progress. Just thought I'll show a bit of it while I finish researching/getting the exact numbers on some stuff]

    Block is also an avoidance skill of sorts, but it falls under the catagory of blue stats.

    Since when do you need skills to play a Monk?
    Ripptx :: Assassin
    Towkin :: Dirge

    Until you try to make up for a lack of skill with twice as much effort, you'll never know how much you can't do~!

    Actually absolutely nothing in your guide except the incorrect description of deflection applys to monks at all you basiclly gave a general and flawed version of how eq2 game mechanics worked that is more suitable for the combat forum.

    Seriously if you want to actually do something like a guide for monks why dont you do something like the best character choices and a detailed description of the benefits and detriments of each AA line and prestiges. Pair that with a gear sticky and a parse sticky and voila this forums sticky area has all the info it needs.

    I don't have the time, nor the inclination to fix all that is wrong, nor write a good write-up of what is needed. Someone make a post, have it reviewed by myself or Blanka or another knowledgeable Monk and get it stickied plz. Ok, back to work for me
