Completionist Life #7 – Monk

Decided to switch it up and try an Arcane Archer Build. Half-Elf 12 monk/6 ranger/2 fighter.

Pretty much this build. It’s pretty fun and having 25% incorporealness combined with displacement is a hell of alot of defense, especially with some dodge thrown in. It’s not really worth using a bow (at least under the old enhancements) until you’re in the teens and get Bow of Sinew (or Abbot bow if you have it) however.
