I've never played a Monk, so see if I'm on the right track:

Stats, base + bonus/buffs:

98 + 22 str
1 + 17  agi
74 + 14 int
14 + 6 vit
41 + 15 dex
9 + 33 luk

Calculated at 95. I plan on waiting and see if I'm happy with that vit.

Gear (card):

+9 Ribbon (Carat)
+8 Chain (Race/Race/Size)
Robo Eyes
Shoes (Sohee)
Saint's Robe (Roda Frog)
Ring (Mantis)
Clip (Phen)

Skills:

http://irowiki.org/~himeyasha/skill4/mon.html?10akakJjdAhFrB1bsqQbx

Intended for friendly leveling/soloing. Maybe I should get Mental Strength to tank high level MvPs earlier? Or is a Crusader good enough?

Now for what matters:

The buffs are Glory, Impositio 3, Agi and Bless.

My Guillotine Fist would have a 1.5 sec cast and deal 160~170k damage on most MvP (with Lex obviously). Depending on circunstances (like using an Alice Doll or being boosted by Demon's Bane) it can raise to 190k. Anyway, it's 160k minimum.

The only MvPs I won't at least two-shot are Baphomet and maybe Orc/Dark Lord, depending on the min/max damage rolls.

Is this any good?

You're pretty much set. It shall do good. Also, you could think of Picky card if you find the hp good enough.

Pretty much the Asura Monk build I use.

don't think you need that much strength for a woe monk, could do with more dex. the int is a waste as well, just use SP gear.

True, high the dex, the better, just use WoE damage calc, and if you're able to do 35kish or around that damage, you're cool enough to kill everything with their redux.

What were the main requirements for using OI on sleepers and being able to 1-2 shot them?  Almost forgot that $$$ from great natures

Lower than that and I failed sometimes.

I think it was 100 strength and a 2x1x chain. Not 100% certain there though.

does +10 mace 3x1x work better or worse than a +7 chain 2x1x? o.o

Chain's better if refined well.

+8-10 2x1x chain would be better for 100-110 strength, then a 2x2x +10 mace is better for 120 strength if I'm remembering correctly. I could be wrong as it was a looooong time ago I last looked this stuff up. +10 3x1x would only be better if you were able to get 130+ strength I think.

Well if its 130 strength, I can definitely get to that point with bless 10. I say mace because its cheaper to come by for those of us in the poor house compared to chain [3] :p

How does Philia Philis' build fair for a pure MvP monk?  New to monks myself, so I haven't got a clue on builds.

Any idea what NPC is sellin g Stunner atm? the morroc ruins guy isn't there nd no enibroch yet.
 
Also im planning on doing this with my build let me know what cha think.
 
str 94 (+8 from rings + 8 from job + 10 from bless) = 120 toltal
dex 85 (+1 from robo eyes +4 from job +10 from bless) = 100 toltal
int 38 (+2 from job +10 from bless) = 50 toltal
vit 28 ( +6 from job) = 34 toltal
agi 9 (+7 from job) = 16 toltal
luk 1.... yeah i don't remeber what job 50 gives to this but w/e
 
gunna use OI to lvl and fast cast Gfist. Aiming for a WOE/small MVP build. main goal is fast cast. If i plan to MVP more ill get morphious gear and other int gear. so yeah let me know what ya think. skills are standered cept im getting lvl 1 agi and lvl 9-10 heal depending if i want cure or not. yes i know increase agi is awsome but i can't justify it in this new server being too broke to afford alot of white pots yet. and with my int ill heal rather decent. planning to run a stunner till i can slot it and card it apropriatly. for WOE im hoping for KVM soon as they come out. that or a carded mace.
