First off, I should start by saying I'm a completely beginner in combat. I know the very basics and have svof loaded, but that's pretty much it.
I was really hoping to learn combat without ever needing to post on forums... but there doesn't seem to be many monks around, especially in Mhaldor (there is like one other active monk and the population is very small). Help has been scarce, but I'm absolutely set on staying in the city of Evil because the future roleplay potential there is
Strength in suffering, indeed.
But the problem remains: where do I start? How do I go about setting up my aliases/ macros and organising all those kicks and punches a monk possesses so that it's not too complicated in the heat of a fight?
One other thing to note is that I only have up to whirlwind in tekura and clotting in kaido right now. I can't buy credits because money and life, so yes, it will take time until I can trans anything. But I want to learn what I can and understand the ways a monk can kill. Especially since I've already been conscripted into the Mhaldorian army and I don't have a single clue what to do XDD
Any help in game or here would be much much appreciated. I have been looking around the forums, but alot of the posts seem quite old, and I had trouble comprehending the bits and pieces. As a beginner, I think I need something more structured so I can figure out the ground basics of monk combat and build up from there. Am I even allowed to get combat help from another citizen in game as a Mhaldorian?!

Welcome to Achaea!
Thanks all for your replies! I'll heed your advice Kenway and Puxi. I would absolutely love an invite to that clan Aegoth. I suppose, now that I think about it, I've been quite intimated by the high-ranked combatants in Mhaldor and felt hesitant to ask them beginner questions. I hadn't realised those people had been previous monks either.
I know a little about monk, but I haven't actually used monk in quite awhile, so if you have any basic questions you can feel free to ask me and I'll probably know the answer.

Get an idea of how your kill method works, practice until you can execute it reliably on somebody who is playing target dummy, then go die a lot. Pay attention to what killed you, try to think up ways to not die to that the next time.

Feel free to take a look at/use/change up if you like, maybe it can give you some idea of where to start on that side of things.
I'd hardly call myself a good combatant, but I'm pretty proficient in monk basics and some of the not-basics, so feel free to ask for help if you ever need it! Keorin isn't much of a fan of Mhaldorians, but she'll usually help anyways, and if you don't mind out of character help, just mark a tell/message as out of character and I'd be happy to help with whatever.
