BATTLE MONK.jpg

Battle Monk (1.3) - Adventurer Class

Many debate on the origins of these warriors, but they have taken up a strong root in the western continent. They are often found in the Dwarven Mountains of the North and occasionally in the hills of the Dawn Lands. Many decide to take up residence in local villages where they become de facto protectors.

Playing the Battle Monk

This is a fast moving and effective warrior.  Fairly well rounded and good at being used in different scenarios. If you do not want to wear armor but still want to be a well rounded fighter then this may be the class for you. It even has some interesting class abilities that give it some range in combat.

Abilities

Armor Allowed:  none*

Weapons Allowed:  dagger, knife, stick, club, staff, two handed spear, one  handed spear, poleaxe (of any type), throwing Star (X3 a day), glaive

Abilities: 

  • Dexterous Movement: The player is considered to be wearing level 1 armor. This is due to quick movement and dodging ability.

  • Strong Mind: Immune to Fae Curse

  • Evasion: Your APR DOES act against the Lightning Bolt Spell (normally the Lightning bolt spell ignores armor/APR)

  • Water Walking: can run across rivers (only the monk, cannot take other players).

  • Can Use Throwing Stars - Throwing stars do no damage but instead reduce a target's APR by 1 point per hit. This lasts until the end of that encounter or duel. This ability can be renewed by the Smith. The monk gets 3 throwing stars per day (3/day). The target's armor does not have to be repaired afterward by the smith, as this represents being distracted more than the armor being damaged.
