Will it blend?


Advice

Grand Lodge

Had a crazy idea the other night, and it won't get out of my head now.

A Monk, Magus,Inquisitor build. Focus mainly on the monk, with the other two mixed in for flavor and crazy ability stuff.

Tempted to even drop in some Mystic theurge in there too, but wow ...

anyway, any advice? think it will blend? Not looking so much to optimize (although if it can be, that would be awesome too), so much as will it even survive at higher levels being that it is so split up.

Help? tips? advice?


Really MAD build, perhaps moreso than straight monk though I'm not overly familiar with Inquisitors.

Also your BAB is going to be crap I suspect. Concentrate on Touch attack spells.

MAD wise it adds INT to the needed mix for Monk. Inquisitor and monk are mostly the same in stat needs.

Magus weapon will be unarmed attack. between the weapon buffs from Magus and KI he should be able to mess someone up.

Inquisitors are Wisdom heavy, so they'll mix well I think. they have their judgments, which I'll likely be using Healing judgment a lot.

yeah BaB is always a problem for monks, magus might offset that a little.


not sure if the magus arcana can be applied to unarmed attacks....

I could see it being a fun build, though highly unoptimal

I like how it sounds. 5 in each would be a slow... slow climb to power.

I think, though, that I would rather go Duelist for the last 5 instead of MT. It just would make a better melee/support character. If you take Boar Style, you can get piercing damage for your unarmed strike. which means that INT+WIS+DEX=AC... Sounds like fun.

"A monk's unarmed strike is treated as both a manufactured weapon and a natural weapon for the purpose of spells and effects that enhance or improve either manufactured weapons or natural weapons."

have you ever looked at a magus/cleric/mt build? same Idea, but stacked with the Monk. Horribly slow going, but definitely looks like one of those "wait for it..." kind of things.

Duelist also focuses on sword play, and I want to focus on the Monk instead. Magus stacks with monk, but duelist would detract.


I've thought up Monk/Inquisitor builds before that used Guided property to make wisdom a primary stat and reduce MAD. I've considered Magus dipping MoMS monk for crane wing. But...all three seems a bit too tough to pull off. Dipping two other class in general with magus seems too much, the CL hit and spell progression would suffer terribly.

I'm thinking monk of the empty hand, Magus Kensai, Inquisitor could be Anger Inquisition I'm thinking.

I made an extremely successful magus 8/synthesist 8 character once.
