I'm playing as a monk, the DM agreed to allow me to use a whip as a monks weapon (think Shaolin monks using chain whips), but we aren't sure how to treat the hit/damage rolls, would they stack or should we disregard the finesse. I don't want a game breaker, but the rolls seem to get a little ridiculous sometimes. Monks dex is 16, +3 bonus to hit/damage
Finesse: When making an attack with a finesse weapon, you use your choice of your Strength or Dexterity modifier for the attack and damage rolls. You must use the same modifier for both rolls.
