Developed by Tactical Adventures, Solasta: Crown of the Magister is an RPG based on the 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons rules. On November 14, 2022, the Inner Strength DLC introduced more features to the game, including the new class Monk along with its subclasses. It’s time for us to learn what makes a good Monk!

Monk Class Guide – Solasta CoTM

Wisdom, Dexterity, and Constitution are key factors in a Monk build. So, you should choose an Ancestry that has Ability Scores in two or three of those categories. Dwarven lineages are great. Half-Orc, Sylvan Elf, and Marsh Halfling can work as well.

The background that came with the Monk class is the Ascetic. Other good options include Lawkeeper to make you a stronger melee attacker and Academic to make you proficient with the Manacalon rosary, which is useful to enchant items.

When choosing your Ability Scores, remember that Dexterity is the Monk’s number one status, followed by Wisdom and then Constitution.

In the Skills section of your Proficiencies, you can choose Acrobatics and something else, maybe Stealth if that suits your playstyle.

For languages, Terran and Old Tirmarian will be useful in the main campaign, and Giant for the DLC story.

With your character created, it’s time to look at how she levels up!

Level 2 is where you start learning Ki Points, which you can use to “harness the mythic energy of the Ki” in skills such as Patient Defence, Step of the Wind, and Flurry of Blows.

You also unlock Unarmoured Movement, which increases your speed by 2 cells when you’re not wearing armour or carrying a shield.

Level 3 unlocks the ability to deflect or catch missiles when you’re hit by a ranged weapon. Spend 1 Ki if you want to give your enemy a taste of their own medicine and send the missile back to them (though you shouldn’t do it when you have so few Ki Points).

Here, you also get to choose your subclass aka your Monastic Tradition. Way of Light presents the best skills without needing to level up too much to use them, with Way of Freedom coming second, Way of the Survival third, and Way of the Open Hand fourth.

Level 4 unlocks your Ability Score and Bonus Feat.

For the Feats, you want to look for Cloak and Dagger and one of the “touches”—Burning Touch, Icy Touch, etc.

Level 5 gives you Extra Attack and Stunning Strike, the latter capable of stunning your opponents in exchange for Ki Point and one of the main reasons that make the Monk class strong.

Each Level will either give you new skills or new Feats. And, of course, more Ki Points! Many people don’t like the Monk because after Level 6 the upgrades are a tad boring. But the Monk does deal some great damage, so it’s worth messing around with this build!

Thanks for The Vaniverse Gaming for this fantastic breakdown of the Monk class! If you want to know more, check out his video: MONK Class Guide (Solasta CoTM): Complete Guide to Monks!

Frozen Flame: INFINITE Bones, Fabric & XP Farm Guide – Get Unlimited Resources & Masks Fast

Your crafting problems are over!

Released on November 17, 2022, Frozen Flame is a game that blends Survival Action and RPG. Fans of both genres will already expect levelling up, various biomes and enemies, collectables, and crafting! While part of the genre’s structure, crafting can be difficult if you don’t know how to obtain the necessary resources. Are you having a similar headache? Fret not! Read this guide for some tips and tricks to help you!

INFINITE Bones, Fabric & XP Farm Guide – Get Unlimited Resources & Masks Fast – Frozen Flame

Bones and fabric are two important crafting resources in Frozen Flame. And what if I tell you there’s a way to get as many of those resources as you can get? And that, in the meanwhile, you can also get loads of XP?

Sounds too good to be true? Well, maybe… but you’ll see that it works!

Fabric Farm

There are two farming locations.

The first and most efficient (and the one that will also give you Masks if you want to add more to your collection) is the Cradle of Keepers, the starting area of the game, where you can farm fabric.

Before leaving your house, equip some weapons to help you: the bone bow and bone staff are good options.

From the southwest portion of the island, you’ll want to fly northwest and find a cave. You can check out the exact location and the cave’s appearance in the screenshots below:

Inside this cave, you’ll find a huge encampment of humanoids as well as the purple mists that spawn Mobs.

The strategy here is to trigger the mob spawn then walk backwards and start killing them with your bow.

However, you don’t want to kill all the enemies! Keep one or two alive, walk further backward and wait until the mist reappears.

This is the sign that a new mob wave is ready to respawn. Go inside the encampment and retreat again, repeating the process of shooting and respawning them until you’re satisfied with the number of corpses littering the cavern’s floor.

Then, kill every enemy and remain inside the encampment. Loot all the corpses, and you’ll be impressed with how much fabric you earn with this simple strategy!

Bones + Fabric Farming

Broken Valley is the second farming spot and the place you go if you need bones and fabric.

First, fast-travel to the first quick-travel spot in the Broken Valley, where you completed the quests for Hornhead. And what you’ll do is travel to a hidden cave underneath the island.

Inside this cave, you’ll find three mobs: a shield bearer and two warlocks. Your goal here is to ignore the shield bearer and kill the two warlocks (be careful with their fire spells!).

Once you kill them, leave the cave, wait a couple of seconds for their mist to respawn, and go back inside, repeating the process.

After a few times, you can go in and quickly loot the fallen enemies (always ignoring the shield bearer) and keep repeating this process for as long as you want (or for as long as your items have durability).

While slower than the Cradle of Keepers cave, this will give you all the bones and fabric you’ll need in the game. So, good farming! Thanks to 04AM for the tricks!
