Boeroer Posted June 6, 2021 Share Posted June 6, 2021 (edited) Henlo it is I the Mortar Monk maniac. Besides the fact™ that a Mortar Monk is just the greatest setup of all timestimestimestimestimestimestimes due to Resonant Touch getting applied by Blinding Smoke - and Blinding Smoke applying Avenging Storm and certain other awesome stuff with smoke I guess and so on... ...it only becomes better if you also use Belt of Magran's Chosen... ...because Blinding Smoke hits can also call forth a fire blight. Since you can trigger absurd amounts of hit rolls with Blinding Smoke on a crowd you will quickly summon a rel. big number of blights with Whispers of the Wind. Why is that good? Because they have abysmal defenses by the time you are at PL 9 and they get targeted by Whispers of the Wind as soon as they enter the battlefield - including all the blasts and bounces which produce yet even more Blinding Smoke procs which summon more blights (and Avenging Storm procs and so on). All those Blinding Smoke procs hit other enemies again which leads to a ridiculous amount of Resonant Touch stacks even against only few enemies (and more blights). Also they die very quickly in general. Lots of dying enemies can have some nice side effects: E.g. If you want to use Xoti's Lantern + Hand Mortar you can fill up all your mortification quickly and get to max wounds, too (lantern: +1 wounds +1 mortification per kill). Funnily enough the +1 wound also triggers Rooting Pain which may kill yet something else. You can emerge from Whispers of the Wind with 10 wounds and full mortification. It even makes sense to learn Inner Death then because you can finish off some lonely enemies who weren't in range when you farte whispered in the wind. Abraham will give you plenty of health because you turn into a blight serial killer (as a hobby). Sungrazer's AoEs (main hand) can be triggered more often. Or something like that. You know your on-kill-effects. Also putting Current's Rush in the offhand is cool because all the blights give it more chances to unleash a deadly chain reaction that kills everything (it's easier to achieve with lots of low defense enemies in the area). Also nothing prevents you from switching to another weapon to use other on-kill effects. Of course this can also be used with a Barb (Heart of Fury - hello Blood Thirst), Fighter (Clean Sweep), Ranger (Whirling Strikes) to produce many blights which will often get killed on the spot. I'm sure you can be creative with this. But you know: Mortar Monk. Edited June 6, 2021 by Boeroer 3 2 Deadfire Community Patch: Nexus Mods Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
