    Default Druid/Monk Wolf

    Second to last life I need for completionist is Druid for my main. All his lives have incorporated monk and handwraps to some degree (barring alignment restrictions) and am looking at an 18/2 split. Not worried about capstones as he'll spend all of an hour at lvl20 before going to his last life. I have a lvl10ish first life druid that hasn't been touched in like...5 years, so pretty unfamiliar. I read through the Druid change notes from last year and a couple of the builds here, particularly the Pure Wisdom Doggo as I was planning on heavy use of Falconry. Main questions are does Stunning Fist and the elemental Ki strikes (Fist of Iron, Unbalancing Strike, etc) still work in wolf form? And TWF/THF feats are unnecessary now correct?

    His bard and barbarian lives were splashed rogue and TA so I have some decent qstaffs as well to mix with handwraps. I realize there are better weapon options but meh...flavor. And I want to remain centered.

    Thanks

    Hello

    I can answer some of your questions.
    Stunning fist - don't know. don't think so.
    Fist of iron - Works with quarterstaff in bear form, not sure about handwraps.
    TWF/SWF/THF - No druid in animals form only benifit from natural fighting.

    As a test build i did a centered bear 13/6/1 Druid/Monk/fvs using staffs, the idea should work for wolf form also. Stave of the seer and elemental bloom are good. Perfect pinacle and lore fuled packbanner are also good.

    Let me know if you need more info about the build.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention that quick strike does not work in bear form for some reason.

    Stunning Fist only works with unarmed strikes in humanoid form.

    Acrobatics and Quick Strike don't work in animal form, but static bonuses like Staff Training and Specialization do. Combine with Shillalegh and monk stances. In theory DEX to damage options like Advanced Ninja Training should work in animal form, but I haven't tested it myself.
