Hi, Im considering to try for 5k favor next life, and for this id like a flexible, speedy build, a monkcher (not very innovative but at least no bard)
basic ideas so far:
dex/wis based: high reflex, high open lock (well...), no probs with ranged prereqs and MAD. Dex to Dam with shortswords (Ninja Spy) and longbows (Aerenal Elf), both centered. stats like 20 dex 16 wis 12 con some int, low str/cha
elf race: dex to dam with bows, displacement dragonmarks, elven arcane archer tree, even automatic trapfinding
12 monk 6 ranger 2 arti: 2 arti for trapskills, UMD and some spellpoints, plus a free lever-pulling dog if needed. 12/6 typical monkcher.
ranged: bows, got a pinion and the bow from harbinger chain.
melee: dual shortswords - centered, and ranger gets free twf feats anyway. Got a collection of shortswords from past lives.
Self-healing: scrolls, wands, cocoon, monk light path stuff
So, can anybody with experience on monkchers comment on this? How important is wisdom in this build? What about feats? Seems to have a lot of room for feats since I wont use PA/Cleave/OC
feats: (7 heroic 3 monk 3 epic)
Improved Martial Arts (works on bows?)
thanks for any pointers. The idea about making an elf monkcher isnt mine, but cant find the thread right now.
