My current plan for my my monk is to have decent saves and AC. Dps and hp are a secondary concern, provided I have enough of both to be useful as more than a trap dodger. He is currently using Wind Stance with a focus on strength.
My monk is wearing, at level 12, the following.
Head: Minos Legens
Neck: +6 Con
Trinket: Bloodstone/Greater Bold Trinket
Cloak: +5 Resist/+5 Protection
Belt: Greater False Life
Ring: Strength +6/Dexterity +6 and Wisdom +6
Gloves: Strength or Dexterity +6
Boots: Striding +25/30%
Bracers: AC +7
Clothing: Garments of Equalibrium
This is almost assured to not be optimal. I don't have any way to slot in both +5 saves and protection, +6 wisdom, dexterity, strength and constitution, while also getting heavy fort and toughness. In other words, it seems impossible to slot everything on a monk this low of level. So, forumites; if you could please either prove me wrong(Show me how to slot everything good) or give me a list of priorities, that'd be great.
