So I am playing minotaur monk and have profficiency to use execution axe. Now how the whole ki-focus thing works...
What I got from the PH3 is that:
I can attune myself to a ki-focus and use its enhancement bonus and propereties for my powers and add it to weapon attacks I make with weapons I have proff. with (in my case the e. axe)
I can use magical weapon as an implement as well, this way I will take its enhancement bonus and critical hit effects, and magic item properties and powers you can apply to that power.
Now I have these questions regarding the mechanics:
When I chose my ex. axe as an implement, how will it work since the axe has brutal 2 and high crit? Will the brutal properety carry over to my monk powers? Same goes for criting with it - will the high crit apply as well?
Are ki-focuses in a different position than the weapons I can use as an implement? When I have magical weapon +2 and ki-focus +1:
- can I add the +1 to the +2 of the weapon when making basic melee attack?
- can I say I use the weapon as an implement and do the same thing (gaining +4)?
- can I use my monk powers when I wield two handed axe and say I use it as an implement?
(or do monk powers require me to have at least one hand free)
3)Does the Ki-focus increase the damage of my Flury of blows?
- When I want to use magical weapon as an implement, will it work as well?
Hope I listed everything regarding this matter.
