I like Monks in POE and POE2.
They have OK tankishness, good CC and shine in prolonged combat.
While I can understand the balance issue at hand, I dislike Mortification, which prevents me from using an ability all throughout the fight.
This mod makes Flagellant's Path, Shared Pain and Launching Kick cost Wounds instead of Mortification.
The screenshot shows 3 Wounds, but I've tuned it up to 5 Wounds since.
