The monk does not use weapons, preferring therefore to go bare-handed, thanks to the speed to attack and the ability to self-heal. Having a character with this class early in the game makes a lot of fights easy enough.

  • It doesn't need weapons
  • Very strong physical abilities
  • Fast and balanced in statistics

How to unlock it?

The Monaco class unlocks as you progress through the main story and beat Horten, the boss of the end of the Prologue.


Monk has a lot of active skills but few passive skills.

Recommended skills

In addition to the single passive ability to be equipped by force if you decide to use the Monk, there are also a couple of useful skills to inflict a lot of damage in combat:

  • Fury with bare hands
  • Full of energy
  • Inner alchemy
  • Pressure point

Specialties and special abilities

Each class has two specialties and a special ability. The first specialty is acquired based on when you unlock the class, while the second is obtained by reaching level 12. This type of specialty offers often passive bonuses while the special ability, in addition to being active, allows you to do damage to the enemy .
