I'm new in the forums
But I think I had beaten this game three times already.
Last time, I was wise enough to keep a save at lvl 30 with 3 skills yet to use, to test different combos of weapons. Seeing the new release, I thought I would test the new things, so I fired up that save and went the way of the monk.
Is it supposed to be on par with the other options? The save was in the middle of charwood, so obviously my equipment is lacking, but I have a fine hat, a fine shirt and the feline clothes, so according to the previous posts, the only thing I am missing is the sublime robe. On the other hand, now I have less AC and BC than before I went for the way of the monk! And my equipment was nothing special, just things you can buy on stores.
So what am I doing wrong?
Base AC: 125
Base damage: 6
Base block: 33
- Combat speed x 2: this is a must for any character, right?, is it possible to skip it and have a reasonable alternative, even if it is not on par?
- Increased fortitude x 2: assuming I will reach level 55, which is the level the last character reached when I finished the game, the first IF gives you 50 HP, which is 10 levels. The second IF will give you only 35HP, which is 7 levels. I think it is worth it, but I would love for someone to listen to other opinions.
- Regeneration x 1: Maybe this was a mistake, as I cannot remember why I chose this one. I guess it was only to save money on bonemeal, but now I would pick other things of course.
- Fighting style - Way of the monk x2: 24AC, 10BC, 2DR, 8Damage + 1.5 crit Of course those things are great, but the template I reloaded had balanced sword (32AC, 3-7 Damage, 97% multiplier, so almost nothing) and strong wooden tower shield (-6AC. +14BC), which is a total of 26AC, 14BC, 3-7 damage, so the way of the monk is not looking interesting ATM to be perfectly honest.
Thanks for the help!
