I've been reading threads and searching the forums for information on these two classes. I believe I have te gist of what they each offer, but would appreciate a bit more information.
1. Between armor, forging or buying weapons, venoms, and inks, how time-consuming is runewarden upkeep? Monks only seem to need armor (healing items beyond mention).
2. I understand Tekura is a large part of a standard monk's combat abilities. Does a STR monk rarely use Telepathy, due to low INT? Is there an ideal balanced monk stat-wise that can deal lots of damage while still effectively hindering with Telepathy?
3. Both seem to be "prep-based" classes, but which would be best for a beginner if a "beginner's class" can even exist in a game like this?
4. I see 'artied monk' mentioned often, but I rarely see talk of artied runewarden. Is runewarden a class that can compete in higher tiers of combat without artefacts? Can monk?
