Also, about that Metamagic feat choice, would Maximize affect Healing Ki (or is it like a Cleric's Heal)?
--------empower healing for healing ki. extend will affect stuff like walk of the sun theoretically (have not tested).
Let me throw this out there and see what you guys think of it.
bludgeon weapon focus/greater focus +2 to hit
bludgeon weapon specialization greater specialization +4 to damage.
Fighter kensai 2 (possible fist for focused weapon) +8 to str
6 monk gets tier 2 wind stance.
I have been thinking about this for one my human fighter for a while Or going 12 ftr 6 pally and 2 monk. i am currently 12/2/2 bludgeon specced using greensteel warhammers.
----------You will lose DPS using fists sadly. Your Ki generation will be awesome though, with kensai's synergy. One of the main synergies your losing without a lot of paladin is healing and metamagic. 8RNG/6FTR/6MNK or 8PLD/6RNG/6MNK would be great vs both UD and EO.
For the OP, 15pld/3mnk/2ftr(or 2rng) is also viable.
