I'll soon be starting a level 1 human monk (Barley), and I do not have experience with how to plan the build of a monk.
Any suggestions on good monk builds?
I'm considering a strength-based monk, though I think I've heard most people opt for a dx-based monk.
Thoughts or suggestions?
These are my ideas, thus far:
Feats: 1. Luck of Heroes, Dodge, 3. Weapon Focus Unarmed, 6. Blindfight, 9. Toughness, 12. Imp Crit unarmed (not sure after that, maybe Power Attack and Great Cleave partially as pre-reqs for Overwhelming Crit later; or if kamas are useful then weapon focus kama, imp crit kama).
I'm assuming Mobility and Spring Attack are not needed if I have a high Tumble. If Strength-based, I may need Expertise (and Int 13).
Major: discipline, tumble
Minor: Concentration, heal, listen, lore, persuade, spellcraft
