Spelled Little Savior and Ilfan Byrngar's Solace, btw, those shields.

 

Have you made personal solo Chanter experience on PotD mode with those fights and relying on getting Proned? Or is it purely theoretical talk? I've found the monks at Crägholdt to be quick punchers that do heavy damage while your chant takes time to hurt them and fuel them with wounds to hit you even faster.

When I'm testing characters I usually fart around Cragholdt for a bit but no, I have to admit I don't have much extensive solo experience.

 

There is also the Black Sanctuary shield that you can use to cast withdraw on yourself and you'll chant while you're invincible, but that's probably more of an exploit that anything else. If you've got a priest a long then this is strategy that can be used (or abused) from level 1.

 

I have found in my many playthroughs that enemy PC Monks AI seems to be set to zooming towards the lowest deflection characters in range and landing Prone/Disables with any wounds that are available. Drunken Orlan is maybe more of a unique case, as if memory serves he used the Dichotomous Soul quite a lot.

Withdraw in solo game is not working very well. The encounter will end because you are gone - and your withdraw spell will end, too. It works if you first put out some summons though. 

 

Preservation shield + preservation item (for example Blaidh Golan hide armor + Solace medium shield) work really well with a chanter. Sure, if you get stunned you won't recite phrases, but you will sing if you suffer from prone. And besides that, you get near untouchable with +100 to all defenses. Sometimes the bonus doesn't get applies properly though.

Maybe I will return to some more testing with two stacking Preservation items some time. Relying on them increases the risk too much in my opinion. Prone duration isn't long and afterwards you take quick hits again doing lots of damage. I've played a bit with Kaoto's monks in various ways and didn't notice any substantial safety from the +100 bonus to defenses, because most of the time you are not Prone.

Yeah, it's a bit risky. Especially because sometimes the bonus will not apply - and I can't determine what's the cause.
