I want to play a Pacifist character. My plan is to go 1 level of Monk then max out Wizard-Enchanting. I never want to cause a creature harm, but I'm ok with my friends, or minions, causing havoc.
I realized that several species are immune to charm, which is just about every enchantment spell, so my DM suggested multiclassing as a monk for the extra defense. My DM was on board with trading the martial arts feature for the grappling feat after I suggested it. Grappling is the character's backup plan for when enchantments do not work.
Are there any concerns we should have about balance due to replacing the class feature with the feat, especially since feats are supposed to be much harder to get?
(I did go human BTW for the extra feat, but I got Skilled because I figured most of my usefulness would be outside of battle and wanted the extra skills.)
