I'm making a Goblin Monk with the background of being a poor farmhand at the sides of the monk.

My level 1 build would be to use Tiger Stance to deal 1d8+2 + potential 1d4 bleed.

When comparing to Flurry of blows, which is 1d6+2 twice if both blows hit

Is this a conflicting play? I can use either approach to do slightly different damage, or can I use Tiger Stance with Flurry of blows - as Tiger Stance is still unarmed. Which will do more damage?

  • \$\begingroup\$ I made the assumption that you want the best "damage dealing" as your approach. Is that correct? Are you trying to optimize for best damage output? \$\endgroup\$ – KorvinStarmast Aug 18 '19 at 22:05
  • \$\begingroup\$ I guess it was a dual question. Can they be used together? If not, how do I optimise damage? \$\endgroup\$ – Badja Aug 18 '19 at 22:06

Tiger Stance gives you access to an unarmed strike while in the stance. Flurry of blows states that you make 2 unarmed strikes. Thus as long as you are already in the stance you can make 2 tiger stance unarmed strikes, rather than your default unarmed strikes.
