Nice tips! I recently DM’d a campaign from 1st to 8th with 3 monks, an illusionist, and an assasin/barbarian multiclass half orc who was added half way through. The group was absolutely OP, with 3 monks each from the different 5e monk subclasses. They were very stealthy with the illusionist and shadow monk, using the mobility and sneakyness of 3 monks and eventually an assassin. They used lots of cool combos with the shadow monk’s teleporting and stealth spells and the illusionist’s distractions. I’m currently playing a monk in a different canpaign who uses 3 katana- 1 in each hand in 1 in his mouth. I have the paladin heal my broken teeth too, lots of fun!

    Is there a reason to play a vanilla monk? I find even in AD&D the sub classes or kits seem to be better with in-game powers and spell like abilities.

      I’ve never encountered a vanilla monk. However, I’ve found the shadow monk to be the most powerful and fun to play. The teleportation shenanigans and access to stealth spells combo well with other classes- multiclassing a shadow monk assasin or fighter would be dirty! The way of the open hand is definitely cool too, and very useful in any party. He had a giant magic beetle that flew him around and allowed him to pinpoint strike/dive bomb enemy casters. I’ve found the avatar monk (4 elements) to be lacking- when I ran my 3 monk campaign he was the weak link and was usually trailing the wizard in terms of damage output and pizzazz. Looking forward to the new monk subclass options in the coming supplement (Xanathar’s guide to everything) I’ll let you know how it goes.
