Before Combat The monk prefers to ambush foes, and uses his diamond body ability to poison either his spear or at least two javelins without risk to himself.

During Combat The monk prefers to fight from horseback, and uses Ride-By Attack and Lunge to hit foes so he faces little risk of retaliation. He often uses Stunning Fist on the first pass, and if successful follows with a Spirited Charge. Against other mounted foes, he uses Improved Trip to unhorse his opponents if possible.
