View Full Version : Monk/Warrior Question
So after years of playing an online healer, and being absolutely adamant that this time, no way in hell, was I ever going to be a healer... roll forward several builds and not being happy with any other primary LOL Ive gone and created a monk/warrior, and lvld to 7 in a third of the time it took to me lvl each of the other 5 attempts to lvl 6 so it seems I was really born to heal :bonk:
Now the reason I chose warrior as secondary was because I thought that warriors got a Tactics, which would help with defense options but the only trainors I managed to find pre-searing were hammer axe and sword. So at the moment I am using sword options as I like to get in close (it took me ages to realise that one of the monks spells was a DS not a DoT :sign72: ) so its not a problem at the moment but that was my plan - does anyone know where I can obtain this?
Also what do people recommend as the best skill line up for monk pre10.?
PS Sorry if the above posts seems wierd, but Im learning not to post questions while at work... I keep losing my train of thought when they ask me to do actual work :confuse:
You should reconsider the monk/warrior build. I currently have a level 20 monk/warrior and I NEVER use the warrior skills. I thought that I would use the shouts to enhance my buffing abilities, however.. in order to be the most effective healer, you will likely be putting all your attribute points in Healing Prayers and Divine Favor. Protection Prayers even lend very well to healing with Divine Boon and a high Divine Favor score. With no points in Tactics, the warrior shouts make little difference and being in melee with a sword in higher level areas will only put you closer to the massive damage that some mobs are capable of dishing out.
You should have Tactics (attribute that allows you to wield high-armor shields, etc.) as Strength is the warrior attribute that you do not have with warrior as a secondary skill. The extra armor will not really help that much. You are better off using a Healing Ankh or a Focus in your offhand. There are some that offer armor and energy bonuses.
The build can be fun, I guess.. but if you have thoughts of being primary healer in a group, Monk/Warrior with attribute points anywhere except Healing Prayers and Divine Favor will fail at the job. Right now, I play as if I do not have a secondary class and strictly use Monk skills and have attribute points in Monk concentrations and I am capable of keeping up with the damage. Holding a shield or a sword would cut my efficiency to a level that could be dangerous for my group in Maguuna Jungle and beyond.
Aye Im now lvl 10 and realised that i shouldnt have even bothered with a second class, when Im grouping (at the moment at least) all my points go into Healing Powers and when soloing everything goes into smiting and I just havent bothered with the warrior side of things at all.
Now to figure out what i should be carrying in my hands!

Same w/ me, and all I ever use is sprint. I'm about done unlocking warrior stuff, and I'm going to change proffessions, or just keep unlocking warrior stuff I wont' use except in Pvp.
Level 10 is nothing, go back while youstill can. You can get back there in 10-12 hours.
the good thing is that there are many good profession combinations for monks if you can work the spread of points. I myself have come to the decision that monks are one of the few classes that can still be played very well (and perhaps even better when done correctly) while spreading attribute points out over 4+ skills instead of the usual focus of 2 12's or the 11/10/10 three skill combo.
But anyway, what i wanted to say is that the good thing is that you can at least stick with the Monk/Warrior then after your ascention you can complete one of the quests to change your secondary to something more fitting.
