Monks are those who choose to set aside melee weapons for the purity of form to be found in unarmed combat. For a monk, the body is a weapon, and they can deal as much damage as any warrior. Monks rigorous training also gives them great mastery over their bodies allowing them mentally command their bodies to heal themselves or protect them from harm.
They are one of the basic adventure professions. Monks are well known for their abilities in Unarmed combat. Monks excel at one-on-one combat due to their abilities in melee. They have no area of effect spells or abilities however so struggle against multiple mobs.
At the time of writing of this article (2008-08-17) it is generally accepted that the basic Monk class suffers at higher levels because of their reliance on Evasion. The current level cap of 100 means the max base Evasion possible for a Monk is 1,000 points. When battling 100+ mobs, this max Evasion is easily overcome by their attack strength, rendering Evasion useless.
Monks rely on the Unarmed skill as their primary source of damage.
- Spend a portion (50% suggested) of your Training Points on Unarmed
- The way biped armor works, you won't be able to fill every tech slot with Unarmed skill. So, tech Unarmed wherever possible - the next stat that you want to go for is either Strength or Dexterity if you want more offense. Dex will increase your unarmed skill as well as some evasion, whereas Strength gives you more damage than Dex, but no additional evasion.
- For more surviving, get some Health (training points or techs), Armor (only techs), or Evasion (Put points into Dex or Evasion, or acquire Dexterity techs on your armor)
- Level a craft school that gets a lot of Strength, such as Fitter.

Spells, weapons and armor
Spells and weapons shown below may be useable as Monk.
However, you may lack the skill requirements on certain spells unless another school you've played delivers it.
- A Warrior does not gain the Life skill.
Any of the healing spells are based on life, so he is not able to use them on his own.
- A Cleric gets the Life skill.
If you did some levels as a Cleric and gained the appropriate minimum skill for a life based spell, you are able to cast it. Since Warrior is allowed to use some of the healing spells, too, you are able to cast them whenever you met the skill requirements.

Experience required per level
Total Experience needed to reach level 100 is 35,657,500. Prestige schools starting at a higher level than level 1 need less.
Example: Ranger starts at level 20. So it only needs 35,528,400 exp to reach 100. The 139,100 exp needed to reach level 20 are ignored.
Your character's rating is the mathematical sum of all your adventure schools.
