been there (but accidentally i deleted that save slot to low level two handed character)
you need very long patient to get nor deal massive damage to mobs.

first you need to be stand alone without weapon so you need to put def/damage res.

more potion, farming its a must.

last for your damage skill/points(every level up).

after you done that another build set accomplished!.

One more thing, in my experience, martial artists learn how to deal maximum damage in each blow by identifying weak spots of the opponent. They learn how to kill with bare hands (and feet, shaolin actually learn how to handle various weapons effectively but we won't go here) by learning human anatomy. So, I find it odd that Unarmed fighting skill and Way of the monk skill do not increase Critical skill, although Way of the monk does give critical multiplier.

The game has been very late in supporting Monk style building. It, like the game itself is a work in progress.

Please create a separate leveling up of criticals (higher than 20% per skill) for the monks, so that the ECC 50% chance could be achieved near the end of games 100% completion, which is otherwise very tough right now.
Even introducing critical bonus (monks only) as an option under the level up choices (AC, BC, DMG) would be much better than retaining it as a skill only. Skills take more time to unlock compared to leveling up.

Some additional comments:

1. How will the game differentiate between a monk and a non-monk? If changes are planned for the monk style, be it skills, stats, or items, then it could be exploited by armored characters to take advantage of the bonuses granted.
There should be a separate monk character option at the start of the game to ensure the players don't use the monks bonuses only for limited gains.

Certain items should be impossible (greyed out) to equip if certain conditions aren't met to ensure the base statistics match the monks character.

2. On the subject of faster movements, I think this should be granted as a natural ability (unlimited - no restrictions in rounds) for the monks only. Maybe at a certain level/skill. Non-monk types can't have this ability naturally except using potions, or some items and for limited rounds only.

3. Not sure if this is too much to ask but I would like to see the ability for monks only to turn monsters into ally in a combat when surrounded with a group. Basically, a different version of cleave. Instead of AP bonus, monks can avoid a confrontation altogether (based on % chance) and maybe either recruit or order the monster (for limited rounds) to engage in attacking nearby monsters, which would directly benefit the monk in dividing the attack and move cost of the monsters between two targets, unlike a 1 -on- 1 fight.

Ok.
So my perma death way of the monk char is at lvl 74.
Proof of it being possible.

About monk and martial art. I do that in RL since ages, do know vital points and kyusho techniques, and how to critically land blows. It's devastating done properly when fighting others unarmed and unarmored.

So, my take:

Do monks and martial artists do more damage than an untrained person? Yes!
Do critical blows to vital points have more oomph than regular blows to other spots with same intensity? Yes!

So, way of the monk should do more damage than an untrained unarmed fighter. Game provides that! Done.

Does a blow with a fist by a monk do more damage to the body than a mace hitting the same spot? Definitely not!
Does a hit against steel armor with a fist compare to a blow with a dual handed claymore? Definitely not!
If a vital point is covered by armor, does the punch or kick still trigger the vital point? Nope.

So should way of the monk do more damage or equal damage than a claymore? No!

What I am supporting is more viable equipment and cloth for monk, incl knuckles with special actor conditions, etc.
