Beginning Monk

Hi everybody,

My first post disappeared so here is take 2.

I am a starting horkval monk in Cyrene and am looking for advice - a friend suggested I ask here besides in game too.

INTERESTS: hunting, commerce, exploring, combat. In that order.

STATS and TRAITS: I love tekura! Should I go for strength, constitution, or a mix? Any traits I should not miss?

SKILLS: I focus on tekura, then kaido. After, would telepathy, survival or avoidance be best? I miss a lot right now so am working on tekura. I hope to save up for no-brainer lessons then hopefully credits. I saw sometimes people trade these for in game credits, so that’s hopeful :)

ARTEFACTS: after skills, what artefacts would people recommend and in what order given my interests? I heard many, knuckles, hunting pendant, health ring and many others I am trying to make sense of - I am looking for best cost-benefit of course.

I will take whatever advice I can get on top of in game help from my friends! It is a bit difficult to find monks in game when I am online but I have at least two friends that are! Oh and I did find other similar topics but they seem very old or from much advanced starting points.

Looking forward to meeting you all in game and here! Thank you!


  • After talking to monks in game a lot, I am now focused on strength and took the nimble trait. Lesson-wise still working on tekura (rat stance and missing less is awesome!) then some kaido and then probably avoidance and survival.

    I was told the lessons packages are very good value for money so I will try for those two (unsure if people still trade these for credits?). And there is apparently an ingame “talisman” that does the same as a critical hit pendant that I should somehow look for - still a bit in the dark on talismans.  After that come bracelet and regeneration artefacts and then sip ring... and that’s enough probably to think about for the foreseeable future haha...

    Talismans are obtained by gathering the pieces required for that talisman, then using a command to complete the talisman. Most talismans, when completed, create a physical item in your inventory.

    There are a couple of sets of talismans where talismans are just copies of existing artefacts (that you can buy from the shops in Delos), occasionally with different descriptions. I think there are two different sets - Conclave and Elemental - which have a talisman which is just the level one crit pendant (though the Elemental set one may have a different description, it should have the same functionality). That generally ends up being a cheap(er) way of obtaining that artefact, provided you can find people who have the pieces and are willing to sell them.
