STA, DEX, AGI
The Monk is an unmatched martial artist, able to deal a deadly rain of blows on his enemies. He also possesses the inate skill of Feign Death, which can fool his enemies into thinking the Monk is dead, only to have him rise up later to continue his assault.
The Monk can contribute more raw melee damage than any other class face to face. In addition, his ability to feign death makes him uniquely qualified to lure enemies to your group.
A Monk must not carry a heavy load, or his nimble defense will suffer. A Monk cannot survive for long once his enemies turn on him.
As a Monk, you will be expected to venture out and bring enemies to your group. In the event you find you are being pursued by more monsters than your group can handle, you will fake your own death until they return to where they came. When you return to your group, you will unleash a flurry of kicks and punches to defeat your enemies.
