Just Monkin' Around


You haven't played a fighter until you have tried the EverQuest II
Monk!  This very cool class does it all; tanking, loads of
damage, solid utilities, if you can name it, they can do it! 
Haven't tried one yet?  Well then you are in luck! 
We have just updated the Ten Ton Hammer Monk Class Guide with the
newest Tier 8 info and it is ready to start you out on a successful
career as a brawler!


Unlike the plate wearing tanks, a Monk uses high
avoidance to dodge
hits rather than absorb them with high mitigation like a Berserker or a
Guardian would. Because of this, Monks typically wear leather armor and
aim their stats towards higher agility. Another benefit to this type of
tank is that theoretically, the Monk should also be able to deal out a
higher level of damage. With the right gear and excellent combat art
upgrades, the Monk can put out DPS that rivals mages and scouts.
