[Class Build] Shaolin Dragonslayer (A Beast-Slaying Monk)

Recommended Posts

This build is now 4k friendly. ;)

Race: Coastal Aumaua
 
Class: Monk
 
Background: The Living Lands: Colonist
 
Difficulty: PotD
 
Solo?: Only tested solo PotD against dragons and Mowrghek Îen mobs by warping, leveling and creating items with console (legit stats). I have completed the game solo with a different Monk, but he wasn't as effective against dragons, particularly the Llengrath encounter. This build is effective against all dragon encounters.
 
Game Version Tested: v3.04

Sounds interesting, as far as I can judge... would you mind going into greater detail on your strategies? And how did you get through the rest of the game?

I haven't been through the entire game with this char yet... I just created him with the console and fought the Sky and Adra Dragons by teleporting him there via console. Strategy is to drink DAoM, PoLDI and War Paint potions, knock the dragon down, kill trash mobs to proc Champion's Boon via Steadfast and then nuke dragon with standard monk attacks, knocking the dragon down again when necessary.

 

I've tried getting to the Bog dragons with the build & equipment above... died to the first encounter in Mowghek Ien. :p Although I'm not Durganized and I'm not using Caed Nua resting bonus, prostitutes or food.

 

I realize that Moon Monk & dual Bittercuts is more effective for pretty much the entire rest of the game... but wanted to make a specialist build of my own.

Now I've tested the build against all dragons, and it is successful at killing slaying them all in under 5 minutes. I have also made some tweaks to the build and included more info, including which equipment to use in the early - mid game to be successful.

For the endgame resolve.... How is 3+3-4=3?? ;)

 

For the talents and abilities, you have two lvl4 but no lvl2

 

But looks very nice, good job. I agree with Andrea, excellent presentation

I fixed the numerical error in the Talents and Abilities list... guess I can't count. The Resolve error comes from the fact that I forgot to factor in Steadfast's +1 bonus to Resolve. I must've switched to fists when I was counting all the stats up. ;P Edited by Undesirable

I'll put a YouTube video up soon with encounters, but since this build can knock dragons down pretty much every time you use Force of Anguish, and can teleport between mobs at will... you can pretty much guess my tactics. Oh, and if I got turned into a pig or rat, I frantically ran around like an idiot until I transformed back. Anyway, I need to get to bed at the moment, I'll write down the strategy in full later and / or post video.

It's up on the original post at the top, but for some reason you have to disable site protection (turn https off via the padlock icon in the browser bar on this site only) to be able to view the hotlinked YouTube video.

You can only put one proofing on an armor. If it's already corrode-proofed then that's it. You can't remove or overwrite it.
