This guide will display my take on character optimization and hopefully provides tools and ideas regarding monk optimization for CO community. As a firm believer of "practical optimization", I'll strive for elegance, clear rulings and practicality as well as making the most of the class that is monk. This guide is not meant to be the end of all unarmed combat (since there are other ways to do it besides monk), nor this is a monk dipping guide.

Thanks to Dictum Mortuum and his many works for idea how to make good looking handbook.
