I am planning a 18/2 Arty/Monk build to experiment with an evasion build. I see most multiclassed arties splash the two monk levels at 2 and 8, but for the life of me I cannot find the explanation or game mechanic behind it. I believe (but this could be wrong), feat progression is based on your class level, not your character level. If so, why does the level matter? I understand if you are plashing rogue, for instance, you do so at lvl 1 for the extra skill points, but if you are splashing monk does it matter, and if so, why? Thanks in advance for your help.
