I wonder what is wrong with my monk, every time he fight he doesn't sucessfully increase the KI energy.
What is the fault ?

too low concentration ?
too low bonus hit aka too low main stat ? (str or dex)

help me to understand.

thanks in advance

Is it a pure monk?
Is it a melee monk?
Are you over weight?
How much concentration do you have?
What stance are you using?
What is your current level?
What are your stats?
Screenshot of your screen when in the middle of combat?

Several class-specific benefits are lost while a Monk is not Centered, effectively switching off the Monk's central powers.

pure monk melee monk,
do you mean if i will split and take levels of other classes ? no, the plan is to get a full 20 lvl of pure monk.
what other kind of monks there are ?



Are you over weight?

If i have too much weight there isn't the warning message 'you are not centered' ?




How much concentration do you have? What is your current level?

25 - lvl 9



What stance are you using?

earth stance, most of the time, and i am using the combat expertize feat active




What are your stats?

Screenshot of your screen when in the middle of combat?

sorry at the moment i can't take a screenshot and i barely remember the stats.

You should be gaining ki each time you hit
1 ki per hit, 3 for crits
Sometimes, on a busy monk,
Ie stunning fist everything,
You run out of ki quickly
You said you were in earth
I guess you gain extra ki if you are hit

But what you could do is switch momentarily to fire stance
That generates 2 ki per hit
I do that sometimes to build up for a fight run
But most of the time I run in water

If you are not generating ki on hits,
Then you are probably bugged in some way
I would read the wiki on ki
It has everything you need to know
Concentation is essential,
As it determines your base resting amount
Always find ways to increase concentration

But often running a stunning fist monk,
You ki deplete pretty fast
Often your attacks on tgts don't keep up with what you're spending on stunning fist
So either back off between sf to have the ki,
Or like I say switch to fire to build up
This is worsened if you are also quivering palm
That uses lotta ki too
But get your concentration up, that helps with base amount

I think on my 16 monk my base ki is 42 ATM
I'm a wis monk with points into concentration, and concentration on items
So I can almost do 3 stunning fist before I even attack
But normal attacks should increase ki
Check it again

very informative and useful.
From what you said i suspect that i made something wrong. Maybe my wis is very low.
I am sure that CON is ok though...
well..
I will make him swallow a couple of tomes: wis/con and concentration skill tomes.
Probably i will do a lesser reincarnation to fix all in a better way.

THANKS A LOT.

I may have missed it but i could not figure out what weapons you use.

If you from henhins use lightning the candle this lessens the ki you get on hit.

If you use qstaff you can take core 3 from henshin and get 2 extra ki on hit. This should give you enough.
