    Default U19 Clonk with Grandmaster Stances?

    Hey guys,

    Is it possible to make a Clonk with the grandmaster stances?

    Melee/Caster Hybrid would be optimal.

    EDIT:

    For those that don't want to scroll down, I've come up with this so far:
    17/2/1 C/M/F Split

    1 Empower Healing
    2M Two Weapon Fighting
    3 Maximize
    3M Stunning Fist
    6 Adept
    9 iTWF
    12 Master
    12F Improved Crit Bludgeon or Power Attack (Probably Improved Crit)
    15 Quicken
    18 Grandmaster
    21 gTWF
    24 SF: Evocation
    27 Blinding Speed

    Still not sure if it will work.

    Its possible, yeah - at level 6, 12 & 18 the adept/master/grandmaster of forms feats will become available, which upgrade the basic monk stances.. but it'll require you to spend 3 feats on them during the levelling process
    I don't mean to come across as unsympathetic - but I am, so I do.

    I guess my question should have been:

    Is it possible to build a decent healer, caster, melee monk with Grandmaster stances as a clonk? Because that's a lot of feats and I do not know how to pull it off.

    17Cleric/2Monk/1Fighter Maybe?
    Go cleric till level 17, then go 2Monk/1Fighter and use the three free feats for stances? Not entirely sure on how this would work or not since I haven't really looked into it myself; just thinking off the top of my head.

    If you went this route I would also spec in PA, Cleave, Great Cleave, and Overwhelming Critical and stay centered using Sireth/Twilight. With this I think you could make a pretty decent healer/Melee Clonk build. Maybe not so much DC casting though.

    Monks get the stances free. Other classes need to pay for them.

    It'd be slightly broken if a 2 monk splash gave access to grandmaster stances for free..

    What would the feats look like with that build?

    Also, how would you do it TWF+Stunning Fist? Is that even possible, or not enough feats?

    EDIT:

    Does this work for the feats? Am I missing anything?

    1 Empower Healing
    2M Two Weapon Fighting
    3 Maximize
    3M Stunning Fist
    6 Adept
    9 iTWF
    12 Master
    12F Improved Crit Bludgeon or Power Attack (Probably Improved Crit)
    15 Quicken
    18 Grandmaster
    21 gTWF
    24 SF: Evocation
    27 Blinding Speed

    Planning on using either the RaS tier 5 heal aura, along with the Tier 4 DoT SLA on Divine Disciple as well as Energy Drain+Stunning Fists+No Mercy for some nice melee damage. The +10% offhand chance and Jade Strike from Shintao will allow me to get away with having less than stellar melee feats as well as the stances which will put me well above the power level of your standard U18 Clonk.

    What do you guys think, does this look okay?

    Ahhh
    Now that makes a lot more sense.
    So if i have say 6 monk lvl i get Adept Forms for Free and would have to buy Master and Grand-Master, am i right?
