I doubt I'm the only one to have thought of this, but I've never read about it before so I thought I'd mention it. A tactic to use with Fists of Light is to intentionally equip weak weapons--I use a pair of plain kamas--to "milk" an opponent for HP. I was driven to try this because so many opponents die before I can use them to restore much of my HP. If, for a given group of opponents that aggro together, you save for last the one that does the slowest damage, you can kill it slowly with those weak weapons, giving you more time to restore your HP via Fists of Light. As long as you fill your HP more quickly than the opponent damages you, it works. Mountain Stance helps. Keep in mind though that if you do 0 base weapon damage you don't get Ki--maybe no HP either. Also, I acknowledge that the circumstances in which this is helpful are somewhat limited, but I also suspect that there are circumstances in which it can save the day, so guy buy a pair of cheap kamas and scrape any offensive enchantments off them. Hmm. I should look into defensive enchants for those. Parrying comes to mind.
