    Unarmed fully works with ED Combat Brute and Sense Weakness. Sense weakness probably also stacks with 10 or 20% No Mercy, but not 30%. It is likely a 10% rogue no Mercy, 20% monk no Mercy, and 30% Sense Weakness effects all stack since they are different %s and appears to be untyped.

    Ninja stars in Shadowdancer maxing sneak attack / dex as a Halfling 13 rogue 6 monk 1 ranger is around 600 dps, and shurikens apply sneak immunity vulnerability debuff of SD. Sneak damage is untyped, and not increased by helpless debuff or effects. Shurikens are considered ammunition which is why all the crit profile effects don't work. However, enhancement effects (+1 dmg/hit), ammunition imbues from AA or poison quiver do work. As ammunition, you can have a weapon offhand and not be hit by TWF penalty, like a +++HAMP Kama, but also can't use shurikens with Balanced Attacks from PA for knockdown. Add an unupgraded Ring of Lies, Seal of House Avinthul, and Arrowhead to a Rad II GS Shuriken for consistent CC effects and sneak damage, which at 600 dps you will probably need.

    Thrown attack speed ot 14 BAB with Whirling Wrists/Haste was 1.11 attacks/second. Quick draw/Rapid Shot will likely increase that by around 20% total (they increase different parts of the attack sequence). Whirling Wrists is a 30% increase in total shuriken throw speed, since it speeds up only part of the attack sequence.

    I do not think this was always the case ( since the autocrit on helpless days ). Has something recent changed this?

    Thanks. Google Sites isn't the greatest host but it gets the job done. I'm trying to ramp up for Update 21's changes...

    Default Arcane Archer Monk section updated

    With a shiny new computer, I've found more time to research, play and update the guide.

    The Arcane Archer Monk chapter is now decently updated with contrasts to the ever-popular/despised/vilified "monkcher" builds.

    I'm hoping to get the incomplete Kensei Fighter chapter to a useable level in the coming weeks. Update 22 is bound to bring newfound joys or woes to your local dojo, so the guide is always a work in progress.

    Should you see anything that's inaccurate or have a question, complaint or comment on the guide, drop a note on the Guide's Q&A page on its sister blog, The Order of Syncletica.

    Thanks to you and the other contributors for putting together this book Spencerian.

    It is another of the amazingly helpful resources that the player-base has provided for the game. Looking forward to coming updates.

    Default Continued Updates

    Real life is slowing me down a bit in updating several somewhat obsolete areas of the guide, as well as getting my two simple build ideas fully documented.

    I will continue work on it, but appreciate your patience. I want to keep the guide relevant and also prepare the guide for any upcoming enhancement passes.

    In particular, there's been a lot of fresh monastic loot in recent updates that aren't noted. Stay tuned.
