TACTICS

Before Combat The monk tries to find cover from which to snipe at his enemies, using abundant step in conjunction with Stealth to make enemies think they face multiple attackers.

During Combat If the monk must enter melee, he uses Stunning Fist against flat-footed or disadvantaged opponents. If successful, he then uses his rapier in conjunction with Power Attack and Vital Strike. If he’s outnumbered, the monk uses Spring Attack and Vital Strike to whittle down his foes.
