Erdrique as a Monk

Well, I finally got everything ready for Erdrique to do a Heroic True Reincarnation and so I took him to the Grove yesterday and went through the process to start Erdrique as a monk.  My initial plans are him to be as self sustaining as possible, I tend to do this with most of my characters, and I don’t tend to max-min much.  I want Erdrique to be efficient at killing, getting past traps, and being able to heal himself.  So I decided to go down the light monk path, primarily taking mostly Shintao enhancements.  Here is my thought:

Erdrique as a monk.

We’ll see how this build holds up.  I mind wind up switching it around.  My guildie already commented that he would have put more points in Dexterity and I could have took down my Intelligence and Charisma to do that but I wanted those skill points and I didn’t want any negatives for my Charisma based skills.  The monk is a very versatile class so I think I will be fine.  I’m looking forward to it .

Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting!!
