    Default Returning 30 Monk calling on the vets for build help

    Ok guys, I’ve been gone for some time (like prob a few years time). I will login my monk later to post his current setup. for now he’s a 30 Human 32 point Monk. I am looking at two goals and then one never ending character build through reincarnations. First things first the two goals, goal one and two; work on my crafting and farm some of the low level item sets, both in preparation to gather sets of gear for leveling to make the process a little easier on myself when reincarnating. Which leads me to the never ending character build; the end game goal is a pure monk, I enjoy the class. The never ending part is probably more of a feeling since there will be many reincarnations as i would like to go for the most powerful monk (not just dps but dcs for things like qp and stunning fist) I can try to get through past feats / extra build points (iirc it goes up to 36 through reincarnations).
    With this is mind that’s why i’m calling on the vets, I’ve been gone a long time, things have changed, also I was probably never a strong builder anyway lol. So I am assuming things like completionist and racial completionist are strong and will be open to those later, for now I was thinking I would go ahead and knock out my monk lives. Which is where you guys come in. I am looking for help on build setup, items to craft / farm so i can easily do 1-30 after reincarnation without trying to farm any needed items. I will group when I can but based on the community size and the fact I work full time, married, and have a wild four year old son, I will probably be soloing a lot lol. Last time I played, Aasimar Wis based Monk was strong for both but things may have changed. any and all help is appreciated, maybe I will even see some of the older builders come out <looking at guys like but not limited to you Drawing and Symb lol>

    hmm seems like the community (or at least the monk portion of it) has died out.

    Your wall of text is a little hard to decipher without a couple read-thrus so that may have contributed to a lack of response.

    If you are shooting for purely monk lives but intend to go to 30 (instead of 1-20 and tr for the monk lives) then I recommend ETR/TR to maximize efficiency.

    Strimtom has a Aesimar fist monk build that works well soloing.

    Gear, well, I can't help you there, it changes so fast. A solid cannith set at 3/8/13/18/23 should carry you thru for leveling purposes, but it won't be endgame capable. For that you will need Ravenloft/Sharn sets.

    Consider Henshin - with Strikethrough, it's pretty incredible now.

    I ran a pure Aasimar henshin a couple months ago. Farmed an Elemental Bloom, went FoTW (PL reasons) and had zero trouble questing. Between Strikethough and Doublestrike, ELCaS would proc an average of 4 times on groups, each proc healing me for ~80 in low reaper (and everyone else ~180) between levels 15 and 20

    Edit: Whoops, no level range specified on that healing number

    I saw a few vids of some henshin gameplay since it’s gotten better, but I don’t know enough about it, there was no henshin monk when i quit... henshin was around but was so trash that 0 people used it. do they still use wraps or does henshin use qstacks? (personal preference here but i don’t want to use staff)

    Henshin works best with q-staff, but I imagine you could avoid the q-staff specific abilities in the tree and focus on the rest.

    Check out theory crafting the celestial monk
    History of Henshin to wraps build

    It’s a year dead, but the only diff would be new raid items
    You can figure that, it’s the fun of the game

    There is serious detail of build and items needed
    From low to high

    Anyways, my testimony to monk
    Happy adventuring

    You wrote that ELCaS procs and heals the group. Did you mean SCEWL, the complementary T5 ability?
