About this mod

The Monk is a master of Martial Arts, and plays by switching between unique Combat Styles and utilizing a Ki resource. Attacking with an offensive Monk skill will generate Ki, which can then be consumed to enter a Combat Style. Each of the 14 styles offer passive strengths and weaknesses, as well as granting access to a new active skill each.

Permissions and credits
The Monk is a master of Martial Arts, dedicated to shifting between different Combat Styles. Landing offensive Monk skills generates Ki, which is then consumed to enter a stance. Each different Style grants passive strengths and weaknesses, as well as allowing the Monk to use unique Style Attacks. Monks wield staves, including the newly-added Monk staves, which deal physical damage, scaling with Intelligence. By shifting from stance to stance, the Monk boasts a highly versatile skillset, heavy on utility. Effectively utilizing Ki requires proper cooldown management and constant aggression, making for a high-risk, high-reward playstyle. Currently a Work-in-Progress, though all skills except end-game source skills are available and pending balance changes.
