    Default Dark Monk ehancements

    I've got a dex-based halfing monk stunner/dark that I'm fleshing the trees out and was thinking the following looks pretty good to me. Goal is to maximize stun first, then ability to do damage.

    Racial Tree

    Halfling Luck I II III
    Halfling Dex I II
    Cunning I
    Bold I
    Guile I II

    Henshin Tree

    Riddle of Fire
    Static Charge (this could really be any elemental attack, but boosting elec damage works pretty well at end game so far)
    Mystic Training I II III
    Way of Tortoise
    Ability +1 (Wisdom I)

    Ninja Tree

    Ninja Training
    Ninjustu I II III IV
    Touch of Death
    Sneak Attack Training I II III IV
    Fist of Iron
    No Mercy I II
    Wisdom I II
    Acrobatic I II III
    Subtlety I

    Shintao Tree

    Bastion of Purity
    Protection from Tainted Creatures
    Iron Hand
    Argent Fist
    Deft Strikes I II III
    Smite Tainted Creatures
    Jade Strike
    Unbalancing Strike
    Conditioning I II III
    Wisdom I II

    Coming into this I've got 51 Wis/34 Dex, so end up at 56 Wis/36 Dex with a Stunning Fist of 69 (including Yugo/Ship buffs).

    Some outstanding questions I have:

    1. Does No Mercy stack w/ FoTW Sense Weakness?
    2. I give up 10% on the final No Mercy or Shadow Double tier to take the Guile II for the extra SA die. Not sure if that's worth it.

    I think my dark monk, which didn't make the prereq's for Ninja Spy under the old system because it's a first lifer, but could stun anything stunnable in EE, comes out way better w/ the enhancement trees, gaining 5-6 SA dies, plus cold iron/byshek/silver DR, and still sits at the top of the first life stunner pile. Or maybe I'm just seeing things wrong.

    1) yes the stack.

    2) Shadow double isn't worth it.

    #1- yes they stack:

    Combat Brute + No Mercy + Sense Weakness, high wisdom build

    #2- Max No Mercy and Sense Weakness if high rate of damage while stunned is your goal.

    Took my Dark Monk out for test drive in Wheloon EH after setting the enhancements using GMoF.

    Definitely a fun experience.
