    Good information! and I lied about the last question. Is the Shikudo staff two-handed, or can you wield a shield with it?

    Stickmonk is great! Potential on both str and int. I'd say that str is better for 1v1 stuff, but Int is a lot of fun in groups. Staff is 2h!

    I think stickmonk is a pretty cool guy. eh breaks and afflicts fast, hits hard and doesn't afraid of anything.

    Don't forget the part where if they have accurate breakpoints, they can choose to just not do further limb damage while continuing to smack said limb with their staff.

    Also its damage is a lot more manageable now, if you know how they work. I don't think the affs are all that overbearing, either. Kinda shit to fight them as Shaman, but that's just because lethargy+clumsy will ruin your day.

    How hard was the damage nerf anyway? Level 3 stickmonk used to hit as hard as DWB (blackout+par/clumsy/lethargy is strong too) - https://ada-young.appspot.com/pastebin/zLxJNWh6 (with fullplate, messed up finisher)

    I remember the first few times fighting stikudo, against Puxi and got outdamaged under 30 secs for 4-6 fights because I forgot to wear fullplate/didn't set up random arm switch parrying yet/eihwaz runeblade lol

    I've found sawbones immeasurably useful on classes that don't have predict. You'd think you wouldn't need it on a class that preps in 3 hits with no exceptions, but the number of times its saved me from having to guess whether someone cured torso or not, or whether a limb reset, has been well worth it.

    No, not new at all. Has been the case for at least ten years.

    If you ever played Imperian, paralysis stopped shield there. Could be what you are thinking of.

    Paralysis used to stop touching shield in Achaea, it's been a very long time since that was a thing though. It certainly dates you if you do remember that.

    Yeah I played 15 years ago when guilds were a thing. It's like a whole new game now. It's nice though.

    Given you were the second person I ever met in Achaea (killed me walking from Minia with my mentor on day 1)...  you may be misremembering (or just using hyperbole).
