As it says in the title, I'm asking for advice on which Prestige Class works best with the Monk. What I'm asking for, more specifically:

  1. What Prestige Class has the best synergy?
  2. That doesn't require multi classing in another base class.

    \$\begingroup\$ Optimization questions require more information to answer: what does it mean to be the “best” as a monk? Are you looking to be mobile, a heavy-hitter, hard to hit, have mystical powers, or what? Note that monk is a very scattered class that can go lots of different ways, and most prestige classes will focus on one aspect. Also note that monk is one of the weakest classes in the game, and in particular does almost-nothing on 3rd through 5th, which will be hard for a prestige class to fix at 6th. \$\endgroup\$ – KRyan Oct 6 '18 at 2:48

    \$\begingroup\$ That said, we definitely can make your monk the best monk they can be—as soon as you tell us what “best” means to you. You may also want to check out a search of dnd-3.5e monk optimization questions, though there are only a few. dnd-3.5e monk prestige-class also offers some stuff, as does dnd-3.5e monk character-creation. \$\endgroup\$ – KRyan Oct 6 '18 at 2:49
